Song Lyric Sunday: Indie-pen-dance.

Jim Adams

This week Jim has asked us to use Indie Rock or Indie Pop songs as this week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt. What is the definition of indinmusic? : Independent music (also commonly known as indie music or simply indie) is music that is produced independently from commercial record labels or their subsidiaries, a process that may include an autonomous, do-it-yourself approach to recording and publishing. The term indie is sometimes used to describe a genre (such as indie rock and indie pop), and as a genre term, “indie” may or may not include music that is independently produced, and many independent music artists do not fall into a single, defined musical style or genre and create self-published music that can be categorized into diverse genres. The term ‘indie’ or ‘independent music’ can be traced back to as early as the 1920s after it was first used to reference independent film companies but was later used as a term to classify an independent band or record producer

Those of you who visit my blog regularly know that I am a true fan of Imogen Heap. I have put together a little collection of her more unusual music and video. I hope you enjoy! Plus a video where she explains her Mi Mu gloves.

I love  Imogen Heap, you may  of  already noticed that. Her  words  really  impact on  my  life.  When I  was  recovering  from  my  accident  she  kept  me  going  and  helped  me  to walk again. I would  say  to myself I  shall walk  for  one more  song, maybe  one  more  and  so on!

She  has  made  songs  that I  associate  with  joy  and sadness.



The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 3, 2022.

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Its time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday, she announced that “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “twin/tween.” Use, “twin” or “tween” any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Enjoy!

Conjoined Twins

Do you miss me still
Have you lost the will
To find me anymore.
The moon above us will shine
Our hearts and souls entwine.

I still reach out to you
Though my loss is not new
I shall never give in to
The unkind and mean
Distance between

Taken from the same womb
Grown from one egg
Fertilized but once
Twins we grew entwined
They chose to separate, refined

We could not both survive
I had pumped the blood so we’d thrive.
You told me stories fed my soul
We were one , we were whole.
Such beautiful twins with nought between

Throwback Thursday # 66 That Was Then And This Is Now

This week Lauren at LSS Attitude of Gratitude said “I’m going through a crazy time in my life right now. I’ve gone from trying to herd kittens to running after a few ducks that keep getting out of line. I have surgery next week and I’m uncertain how long I will be out of commission. So, I’m cheating a bit this week and asking questions like I did in a former Throwback Thursday. They are different questions, but the same style.”

So this week’s rerun prompt is: That Was Then And This Is Now

1) When you were a kid, what were your creative outlets.

Painting, dancing, singing, writing.

As an adult, what have you created that you are most proud of?

Three sons?…I guess you mean creatively…My blog.

2) Have you ever saved someone’s life? Did you ever witness someone’s life being saved? Did someone save your life?

I don’t think I have ever saved anyone’s life…I am not aware of having done so. My Dad saved my life once he pulled me out of the River Isis in Oxford. I was very young but I still remember it. I think I helped to save my mother in law’s life by quickly realising she was having a stroke.

3) Did you ever get lost as a child? How did you handle it? Do you get easily lost now?

I don’t really remember but I probably did as I have terrible sense of direction and I am always going in the wrong direction 😃

4) Did you search out presents your parents hid from you?

Yes indeed we all did in our house!

Did you get caught?

We did but we never got into trouble because we never tried to open any.

Do you hide presents from family members as an adult?

Yes I have !

Are they ever found?

Not to my knowledge.

5) Do you have a special song that was sung to you by either of your parents.

My Dad always sung Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Dad would often change the words ! He often sang: Twinkle Twinkle little Bat how I wonder what your at! Up above the world so high like a tea pot in the sky.

Did you sing to your children?

I did but they’d laugh at me now!

(or pets) Care to share the tunes?

I sing to Ruby it’s usually a made up song.

6) What’s something you were afraid of as a child?

Being lost and alone.

What is something you are afraid of as an adult?

Being homeless.

7) What do you wish you would have learned more about in school?


8) Is there something outside of school you were so interested in you taught yourself about it as an adult?

9) What made you laugh most when you were a child?

Being tickled.

What makes you laugh out loud now?

A good comedian.

10) What’s something from your childhood that helped to shape your outlook on life?

My mum and Dad they taught me so much .

I have chosen The End Of The Road from Boys to Men…yes it was a Tamala Motown and it was one of the record labels last great hits!

End of the Road” is a song by American R&B group Boyz II Men for the Boomerang soundtrack. It was released in 1992 and was written by Babyface, Antonio L.A. Reid and Daryl Simmons. “End of the Road” achieved domestic and international success. In the United States, “End of the Road” spent a then record breaking 13 weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, a record broken later in the year by Whitney Houston‘s 14-week number one hit “I Will Always Love You“; Boyz II Men would later match Houston’s record with “I’ll Make Love to You“, which spent 14 weeks at number one in 1994, and then reclaim the record with “One Sweet Day” (a duet with Mariah Carey), which spent 16 weeks at number one from 1995 to 1996.

Motown Records is an American record label owned by the Universal Music Group. It was founded by Berry Gordy Jr. as Tamla Records on June 7, 1958, and incorporated as Motown Record Corporation on April 14, 1960. Its name, a portmanteau of motor and town, has become a nickname for Detroit, where the label was originally headquartered.
