The best music quotes that have ever existed.
Light Up The Sky
This is my response to Chloe Rose Violet's Song promt. You are supposed to pick a song, and tell your own story through it. At least that's the interpretation I took from it. Maybe you will find your own! This is her original post if you would like to check it out.
I got the idea for this writing challenge and after I wrote it all out I felt a million different things. Basically, you take a song and delve into the lyrics. I used the whole song because I wanted to but you could take just a few stanzas and write more based on that.
A Review of Rob Sheffield's "Dreaming the Beatles"
Note: I had this in mind as the anniversary of John Lennon's death approached, but I never thought it would coincide with the poem I left here. A nice touch, doncha think? ;)

Fairytale Of New York
This is a short biography about the most popular Christmas song of the 21st Century so far [¹], Fairytale Of New York, written and performed by The Pogues with Kirsty MacColl. If you do not already know it, Google the name of the song. You will probably only get as far as ‘Fai…’ before you hit the link to the official YouTube video, which has been viewed 92 million times in the last 11 years.

Do you remember Madchester? Maybe I am getting too nostalgic in my old age, but I have been thinking about that very brief gap of time when the city of Manchester was the focus of most of my attention, at least as a musical and cultural force. For a city with so many different bands and sounds in its history, it might seem strange to just pick one moment, but I am, as I said, nostalgic…and old.

Spotify Wrapped 2023
Y'all it's that time of year, anticipated by many a Spotify user. Wrapped first started in 2016, although a less developed version "Year in Music" had been premiered the year before.
