It's Saturday evening, it's summertime (in my hemisphere it is anyway) and I’ve wanted to write an essay all day. But I didn’t really want to think hard. I just wanted to have some fun with it. Besides, sometimes thinking can be a stupid thing to do.
So here’s a selection of songs that lift me up. They’re in no particular order. They’re not a list of my all-time favourites. And more importantly, I’d love to hear about the songs that get you going too.
And don’t worry: The House Newf is not going to become a daily conveyor belt for dime-a-dozen lists of ’12 Things That Blah, Blah, Blah.’ Things will be back to normal in The House Newf #19 when I discuss why quitting doesn’t mean that you suck.
Less talk, more music! Enjoy!
