Well we are back to normal at the Eurovision …U.K. came second to last at position 25 ! I thought our song deserved a little more love to be fair.
The show though put on in Liverpool as host for last year’s winners Ukraine was AMAZEBALLS &BONKERS! I loved it! Sam Ryder, last year’s runner up did a great job entertaining us while the votes were sorted . His new song Mountain is wonderful and inspiring …
“I am a mountain And down in the valley below Is all that I’ve overcome All that I’ve overcome, woah-oh” just part of the beautiful lyrics, Sam was joined on stage by dancers with disabilities and prosthetic limbs to show you can overcome. Another suprise was Roger Taylor from Queen playing the drums. Do watch the video it great.
And of course Ukraine who won last year but could not host because of the war came in 6th place . They had their party at our house 🌹
Who won ? Loreen from Sweden…well done Sweden. Interesting song.
A confused but lovely Linda has given us our prompt for SoCs this week she said: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a song from your childhood.” Think of a song from your childhood and just write. Have fun!
As a child our house was full of music, from Pat Boone to Adam Faith and all types in-between! Mum and Dad were both deaf but they had a little hearing and they had their favourites too, Mum loved the big musical show numbers from Carousel , South Pacific , Porgy and Bess …she also loved Roger Whittaker. Dad loved classical music and his favourite was Maria Callas. They influenced me as did all my brothers and sisters! As I said, from Pat Boone to Adam Faith and beyond and all points in-between. Maybe that is why music is so important to me. Now what on earth among all this music stands out as a song from my childhood? It’s very hard but two stick out and they are both very different.
Adam Faith Who Am I
And Roger Whittaker, Mum’s favourite, The Last Farewell.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “song.” First, find a picture–the closest one to you. Your prompt is the title and/or the lyrics of the first song that comes to mind when you look at the picture. Have fun!
So I went into my photos and I found this photo taken by my daughter in law of our grandsons. The moody sky and setting really made me think of this song.
My second choice is Alanis Morissette singing Receive
Alanis Nadine Morissette (born June 1, 1974) is a Canadian-American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. Known for her emotive mezzo-soprano voice, Morissette began her career in Canada in the early 1990s with two mildly successful dance-pop albums.Afterwards, as part of a recording deal, she moved to Holmby Hills, Los Angeles and in 1995 released Jagged Little Pill, a more rock-oriented album which sold more than 33 million copies globally and is her most critically acclaimed work. Her follow-up album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, was released in 1998. More info here.
“Receive” is a song by Canadian-American recording artist Alanis Morissette, released as the third single from her eighth studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights (2012). The song was written by Morissette and Guy Sigsworth, and produced by Joe Chiccarelli. It is a rock ballad about a relationship in which one person gives more than the other, and the wear it causes to the people involved.
And finally memories of my childhood the wonderful Adam Faith singing Send a Message to Martha (Kentucky Bluebird).
Terence Nelhams-Wright (23 June 1940 – 8 March 2003), known as Adam Faith, was an English teen idol, singer, actor and financial journalist. He was one of the most charted acts of the 1960s.He became the first UK artist to lodge his initial seven hits in the Top 5. He was also one of the first UK acts to record original songs regularly.
