Music Monday: Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)

It’s that time again 😀 This one really needs no explanation – it’s a fantastic song that has been covered by hundreds of artists, so this is just my little version of it!

I’d love to hear any feedback you have or requests for future songs – though let’s not comment on the stupid roll my jumper is doing in this video, shall we?! 😉

Enjoy your week, everyone! ❤

 

 

 

Music Monday: No-One But You (Only The Good Die Young)

Happy Monday lovely people! I’m delighted to say that Music Monday is back now that my course deadlines have been and gone 😀 I hope you’ll forgive me for being a little rusty!

As yesterday was the anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death, there could be only one choice for today’s video – this tribute written by Brian May. I definitely have to be in a strong place whenever I listen to this one!

I hope you’ll all enjoy this – and please do let me know if you have any requests! ❤

 

 

 

Music Monday: Circle of Life (The Lion King)

Happy Monday lovely people! I’m back with a little bit of Disney for you this week 🙂

The Circle of Life was composed by Elton John and Tim Rice for the 1994 animated film The Lion King. It also features in the long-running theatrical show and in the recent live-action remake of the film.

Have a great week everyone!

 

 

 

Music Monday Double Feature: Shut Up & Dance/We Are The Champions

You may have noticed that I’ve been quieter on the music front recently. Work has taken over my life a little bit in the last month but I’ve finally been able to sit down at my piano and get some recording done.

So imagine the anxious crisis I had when I made my comeback last week and not a single person acknowledged it.

Except. I didn’t hit publish properly! So now that I know I’m not unloved, just a numpty, I’m giving you last week’s video as well as this week’s! Enjoy my lovelies 😉 ❤

 

Music Monday: Tong Hua (Fairytale)

Happy Monday everyone 🙂

I honestly don’t know when or how I first discovered this song but it is the most successful Chinese language song of the 21st century! I don’t recommend watching Michael Wong’s video though, unless you want your heart broken into a million pieces!

Hope the weekend comes back around quickly for you all! x

Music Monday: With or Without You

Hey everyone! And happy Monday!

I thought I’d do a little U2 for you this week 😀 I don’t know what it is about this song that I love; maybe it’s captivating in it’s simplicity.

With or Without You is the third song from Irish rock band U2’s fifth studio album, The Joshua Tree. It was released in March 1987. It was the band’s first number one in the US and Canada, and was praised by critics upon its release.

It is the second most covered U2 song and is placed at number 132 on the list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.

Have a great week everyone! x

Music Monday: She’s Always A Woman (Billy Joel)

Happy Monday everyone 🙂

I don’t know why but editing this video was an absolute pig and I still don’t feel like it’s fully in sync but hopefully it’s close enough and I’m just being pernickety! Hooray for awkward time signatures haha.

‘She’s Always A Woman’ is a song from Billy Joel’s 1977 album ‘The Stranger’. It was written for his then wife Elizabeth Weber. The song became popular again in 2010 when it was covered by Fyfe Dangerfield for a John Lewis advert, which ranked fourth in an ITV poll for advert of the year.

Have a great week!

Music Monday: Music of the Night (Phantom of the Opera)

One of my favourite songs from my favourite musicals, The Phantom of the Opera ❤ Composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the novel by Gaston Leroux. The musical opened in London’s West End in 1986 and on Broadway in 1988 – it is the longest running show in Broadway history.

It was made into a movie starring Gerard Butler in 2004 and it is one of my favourites!

Also, a small disclaimer: Music Monday might be a bit irregular for a couple of weeks while I transition jobs! My recording schedule has been totally messed up haha. But I’ll upload when I can!

Music Monday: A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’re all having a great start to your week.

I’ve had this song in my head ever since watching Good Omens recently so, of course, I had to play it 😉

A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square is another one of those songs that has been covered so many times that it’s difficult to know who had the original! It is a British classic.

The song was written by Manning Sherwin, with lyrics by Eric Maschwitz.
