June and July pretty much over? How did that happen? Well it has, and sadly for everyone, with far fewer shows from me than there should have been. The end of July saw a very excited me do a Glastonbury special, just before heading off to the festival itself, only for me to find the only bit of mud on site, and break my ankle before the main stages of the festival had even started! I can’t advise doing a festival on crutches in a support boot if I’m honest! I’m on the mend and hopefully out of the cast soon.
So what did our songs for the tired, emotional and just plain hungover look like for these months?
The Cardigans – Communication
Elton John – Your Song
Lewis Capaldi – Hold Me While You Wait
Jessie Buckley – When I Reach The Place I Am Going
Nilsson – Without You
U2 – All I Want Is You
Wet Wet Wet – Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight
Celeste – Lately
Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling In Love
David Ford – The Way The Heart Breaks
Damien Rice – The Blowers Daughter
Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa – Lullaby Of The Leaves
The video I’ve chose for June & July is for the gorgeous Damien Rice single. He’s not one to rush music, this was a top 40 hit back in 2001, with his debut album “O” released the following year. It was then 4 years to the follow up “9”, and 8 until “My Favourite Faded Fantasy in 2014. On that basis, his next album will be out in 2030. But for now, enjoy the video
