Sunday Sessions #1

Here's the first in my favourite music, new and old. Relax with a cuppa and the Sunday papers and listen to my few picks of Sunday Sessions.

The first song is the new release from First Aid Kit, you will probably have heard the brilliant'My Silver Lining' being played a lot on Radio 2. This new single is from their second album 'Stay Gold'. Their songs are really catchy with harmonies written and sung to perfection. They've taken the catchy sound of euro pop and put a folky twist onto it. 

Another favourite song of mine is Gary Barlow's 'Let Me Go' from his first solo album since 1999. To the typical music snob, they may have many judgements as he is a member of Take That and a common TV personality, but don't judge his music until you have listened to it, there is a reason he has achieved the amount of number one's he has done. 'Let Me Go' is musically, a happy song, but listening to the lyrics and as he said himself, it is a painfully sad song written about his daughter who was still born. It is a sad song, but uplifting at the same time. Barlow writes the most catchy pop songs, another brilliant song from his album is 'Since I Saw You Last' a great f*** you song to the people who dropped him from his first solo record deal.

Where Have I Been?

Apologies for the sporadic posts of the last few months, but anyway, I am back with updates and ideas!

As well as finishing second year at university and having essays coming out of my ears, I was lucky enough to go to Paris with my boyfriend for 3 days at Easter, we travelled by eurostar so we managed to get an extra day into the holiday in London and visited Tom's brother and his girlfriend, it was a magical trip all round and we're thinking of going to Paris again in the winter.

Just before Easter, lessons finished at uni, very early I know! so after jetting off (on the train) to Paris, I returned to write 3 essays to finish my work off. I have just got my results and I achieved a 2:1 for second year which I'm happy about. I just have to work really really hard for final year, I know it's going to be really hard, but I can't wait to finish uni. 

Being home for summer I have returned to my job I had before I moved away, I'm so lucky to walk back into work and get hours! 

A week ago I returned from a huge family holiday, we went to Florida! My parents, my sister and me went to America for 2 weeks and having never been before I was quite nervous for the long flight, and the heat! But I loved the heat! We visited all of the Disney parks, Universal and Sea World. Me and my sister even went back to the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios twice! 

I'm going to be doing a regular post on my blog, every Sunday I will post Sunday Sessions, my favourite songs of the week, old and new; so look out for the first post on Sunday!  

Speak soon!
