Getting musical

When I was at high school, there was a guy in my year that could often be found playing the drums in the school’s music room. Since then, his musical abilities have gone on to include (amongst other things) song writing. Earlier this year, my acquaintance entered a YouBloom song writing competition, which is judged by a panel of industry experts (including Sir Bob Geldof).

The current state of play is that my acquaintance has done well enough to become a semi-finalist (which I am absolutely thrilled about), and has been required to make a supporting music video.

When I listened to the song for the first time, I was immediately hooked, and found myself playing the song over and over again. Although I have an eclectic taste in music, I am quite choosy about what I like and dislike, and it’s not often that I hear a song that I feel compelled to listen to repeatedly. I consider the lyrics to be catchy, along with the music. Possibly because of my acquaintance’s musical influences, it feels familiar (in a good way), as though it’s a classic that was always meant to be, if that makes sense.

Anyway, if you like the song as much as I do, I’m sure my acquaintance would be delighted if you were to show your support by sharing the link to his video.

This is a song that grows on you. The more you hear it, the more you want to listen.

Well said Mother!

In my case, the song took me hostage within the first 5 seconds! Lol.

My only criticism is that it finishes far too quickly, but that's a reflection on how great I think the song is. :-D
