Music Monday – Hush Hush

I listen to a lot of different music when I’m writing. I listen to a lot of different music depending on my mood. It will either lift, or enhance it depending on what exactly I need at the time.

Today’s song is well… We aren’t supposed to talk about things that bother us, people who bother us (nor are we really supposed to tell people they bother us or hurt us for fear of hurting them), money, readers, our kids, husbands, work, politics, religion, etc… And when it comes to family, I’m sure we can all relate to the ‘things we’re not supposed to speak of’. You know, the family secrets because it’ll upset the delicate balance and ruin the facade. Really? What will the neighbors think? 😉

This song, is about exactly, that… But it applies to a lot of areas of life and it’s a hoot. Snarky to be sure, but as the lyrics say, don’tcha know the truth hurts…

Music Monday – Gonna Get Over You (NSFW)

And no, this version of Gonna Get Over You by Sara Bareilles is NOT safe for work or likely mixed company (young kids or those offended by the word F*CK. Now, the actual embed link has been disabled by either YouTube or someone else, but… The share link still works.

This sentiment is a lot how I’m feeling of late with some things, some people, some issues, and it’s the best way I could come up with to express such and smile while doing so.

I’ve also added Miranda Lambert’s New Strings… about striking out on your own, proving those wrong who said you couldn’t do it, leaving the old ways behind…

There are new feelings, new experiences, new challenges… And whole year ahead to take chances…
