I love music, old, new, borrowed or blue(s) I love it. I always have it playing in the background somewhere, I love seeing music live and never tire of my old favourites.
I once heard a Triple J presenter talking about her love for 'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness' by The Smashing Pumpkins, she said that she loved it because it made her yearn for something... she didn't know what but she yearned none the less.

I loved that. I know what she means, music like this makes me Yearn....

But generally what floats my boat are alternative pop bands cheerfully singing their chirpy little hearts out about how it sucks to be a misfit. Oh Belle and Sebastian you do it so well and I love you!

Here you can listen so some cheery chirpy and pretty music for free until the album is released on the 8th of September, what a lovely idea!

I have to agree with you about Belle and Sebastian. Love them! I missed out on seeing them with Ro and friends a few years ago when Laney was really tiny and I was really annoyed when they all told me how great the show was after. You've inspired me to have a good listen to them today. Thanks. x

I love how music can bring back precious little moments... For example, I think that Angus and Julia Stone may now forever remind me of strolling through the forest with Steph, Fraggle, Sar and a cow bone. The cow bone is waiting for show and tell day on Friday!
