A lovely gift in the form of Music

I attended my first music concert of a popular musician, Imelda May, thanks to Mr M 😉 She is an Irish Musician and I absolutely adore and love her style of music. The performance was in London Palladium. It is a compact theatre. I loved the acoustics there.

The performance was opened by Jack Lukeman, who delivered a very powerful and entertaining performance from his latest album, Magic Days. The highlight was his King of Soho song. The audience got all warmed up by his songs and imagine the whole theatre singing the chorus for that song.

By the time Imelda May came to stage we were all revved up. She started her set with her song Call Me from here latest album and slowly and steadily the tempo started to rise. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to her perform live. I love her voice even more now that I know how she sounds on stage. There were quite a good variety, rock, pop, jazz, soul, etc…and she carried it all with elan. The whole band was a delight to watch. They had such a lovely synchronisation. There were also some titbits of information about the songs. And she was very cute and shy when audiences called out how much they love her. A true artist.

I wouldn’t mind going again to her performance. An absolute delight she was. And that this was my birthday gift makes it even more special. 😉 Thank you Mr M.

When I get low…

I know I am a little late to the Song Lyric Sunday party because I was busy with my nephew and was on a trip to my temple in another state. So I guess I will be pardoned 😉
Y’all know how I like to listen to some peppy numbers all the time, especially when I am a little low. Nothing like a good foot tapping number for me to get me out of my funk no matter how dark it might be. So for the Song Lyric Late Sunday contribution of this week, here is a song by The Speakeasy Three and their version of ‘When I Get Low I Get High’.

Disclaimer: This is about getting high on some fun music. 😉

Lyrics from a Blogspot post

WHEN I GET LOW, I GET HIGH

My fur got sold
oh lord ain’t it cold
But I’m not gonna holler
’cause I still got a dollar
And when I get low
Oooo I get high

My man walked out
Now you know that ain’t right
but he better watch out
If I meet him tonight
I said when I get low
Oooo I get high

All the bad luck in this town has found me
Nobody knows how trouble goes round and round me….

I’m all alone
With no-one to pet me
But the old rocking chair
Ain’t never gonna get me
‘Cause when I get low
Oooo I get high

My man’s full up,
got his belly in a tangle
’cause I’m a slice of pie
he just can’t handle
and when I get low
Oooo I get high

My pockets are empty
and my chips are down
but I ain’t gonna holler,
No, I ain’t gonna frown
‘Cause when I get low
Oooo I get high

All the bad luck in this town has found me
Nobody knows how trouble goes round and round me….

Woah there was a ruckus last night
I ended up in jail
but I ain’t got to worry –
my girls got my bail

I’m all alone
With no-one to pet me
But the old rocking chair
Ain’t never gonna get me
‘Cause when I get low
Oooo I get high


Posting it for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.
So, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song that helps pull you out of a dark place.

Big bad handsome man ;)

Heard this on the radio today and was totally impressed with the song and the singer 🙂 My kind of song, this one is. It is going into my playlist for sure.

And after listening to the above song for more than 10 times, went on to hear more of her’s. I think I will have to get her albums. I love her voice and her songs. Been playing all of her songs on YouTube today. Here is one more
