General diary entries


I have, according to my kids committed a cardinal sin!

Let me explain.

I have a pretty eclectic taste in music, I always have.
My first single was the theme music to my favourite TV show, Black Beauty!
It still gives me chills. It’s a beautiful piece of music.

My first album was given to me by my Aunty Kim and was the Bay City Rollers.
As a Teen it was Adam and the Ants and Duran Duran.
There were other interests thrown around like INXS and David Bowie, The Who.
I collected movie albums with regular trips to Tower Records in London when I was earning my own money.

With lots of family gatherings, I got to love all the golden oldies of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s
However, rock has always been my thing.

I went through years of sticking with what I know and love and then recently I started to catch the odd song on the radio or that My eldest daughter was listening to and I became intrigued. Songs from movies are now really important.
Daft Punk, Simon and Garfunkel, Coldplay, Adele.

There have been a few songs that I’ve fallen in love with like ‘House of Gold’ by Twenty One Pilots. Bit of a strange video.

‘Take Me to Church’ by Hozier. Bit of a disturbing video!!

But what has taken me completely by surprise over the last few weeks is how much I have fallen in love with Panic at the Disco!!

It’s not just the odd song either.Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die and Death of a Bachelor are two of the greatest albums I ever listened too!
It could have something to do with the fact that Brendon Urie is one of the most amazing singers I’ve ever heard. His range is amazing. A modern day crooner.

It was very hard to just post 4 video links here. I could have gone on and on and on.

If I were a teenager, I think that Panic at the Disco would be my band of choice.

However, back to the cardinal sin of the title.
I like to create CD’s to play in my car and completely rock out to.
Like I said earlier in the post, I have eclectic tastes. It really doesn’t bother me what kind of a mix I put together as long as I like the songs and I can sing along.
I was in the car with one of my daughter’s earlier rocking out to Panic at the Disco and Twenty One Pilots and then a song came on that my daughter took complete offence to.

What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction.

I’m not a One Direction fan but I LOVE this track!!
Apparantly having it on the same CD as Panic at the Disco and Twenty One Pilots is an absolute NO NO!! She freaked!

I still don’t know where I went wrong.
I only put together a CD I enjoy.
Please explain!
