The end of the world is nigh! So pop on some music, pour yourself a drink and let’s watch the fireworks :P

I’ve been a naughty blogger this week and managed to fall behind in posting my “Numbers Thursday” and “Playlist Friday” posts. In a moment of genius, I’m combining both posts into one, after taking some inspiration from a Twitter trend!

As you may or may not know, today is the Rapture. This is according to some random American fella who posted the news on a billboard and the back of his van… two media which I’m sure bazilion-dollar corporations are now kicking themselves for not having adopted, as Rupture-Dude has certainly drummed up a boat-load of publicity. He he he… “boat load”… get it? That reminds me…I need to build an ark before 6pm…

Anyway! Today, I’m looking for your “Rapture Playlists”. If our numbers are up and we’re going down, let’s go down with suitably apt tunes in our heads!

Here’s my Rapture Playlist so far:

I don’t want to set the world on fire, by The Inkspots. 

This is the teaser trailer for Fallout 3, an awesome game set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia. I love the soundtrack to this game!

In the end, by Linkin Park.

Awesomesauce song!

The final countdown, by Europe.

Well it had to make a playlist like this, don’t you think?

It’s the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine), by R.E.M.


So, ladies and gents! What songs make your rapture playlist? Comments please! 🙂

Have a nice day and I’ll post again on the morrow…I hope…



A Song To Make You Laugh.

I have recently discovered The Lonely Island, a funny-as-fudge band with hilarious songs and videos. Titles include, “I just had sex”, “Jizz in my pants”, “Motherlover” and “Cool guys don’t look at explosions”.

Take a look and a listen!

I Just Had Sex, (feat. Akon)

Jizz In My Pants

Mother Lover, (feat. Justin Timberlake)

Cool Guys Don’t Look at Explosions, (feat. Will Ferrell)

Tell me what you think and go buy the album!


For Scan and Shish.

So today’s playlist is a sort of a dedication to my brother and sister. I’ve chosen a song which reminds me of growing up with them 🙂

First is the song “Hymns and Arias”, by Max Boyce. When my brother and I were kids, we used to stay up late listening to Max Boyce records while dancing about on our bunk beds. I’m not sure that I got all the jokes at the time, but I just laughed when he did. Come to think of it, I’m not sure he got all the jokes either! However, I think we knew every word to every song Max Boyce ever sang.

The next song is for my sister, Scan. When she was little, I remember that my mum used to listen to country music on a Sunday, while she did the ironing. In my memories these days were always sunny. I used to sit behind the chair in the living room, playing with Lego or just generally being a kid.

Anna was teeny when she fell in love with this song. I think she knew every word and we used to sing it to her to settle her down. If only we could shut her up so easily now! =P

What songs remind you of being a kid?


Stuck in my head and playing on repeat.

A fairly simple post for Playlist Friday this week, as there’s only one song I can possibly share! This tune has been in my head for nearly a week. It’s stuck there, playing on repeat and refusing to budge! It’s a good thing that it’s such a darn-good song =)


Friday Playlist (2 days late) Cake. WHAT A SONG!

What. A. Song. Lots will know this as the theme music from the cool series that is “Chuck”. I know it as my “getting ready for a night out in my first year of uni” theme tune.

Hope you like!


Two songs which will always make me smile a sad smile.

I won’t say why, but these are the only two songs I can think of right now, and I want to post them here so that others can hear them too.

Dedicated to a wonderful man.


Faraway Places, Vera Lynn


I Just Called To Say I Love You, Stevie Wonder



Peaceful Prose

I like Enya, so sue me! I do feel that I should point out that I’m into lots of music, ranging from heavy metal through to classical. The only music I’ve never been able to get into is rap/R&B. So I’m not just into the mellow instrumentals and VG soundtracks. I just find that I write more fluidly if I’m listening to the latter sorts of music is all. This is maybe because I’m a sing-along sort of girl. If there are lyrics then I like to sing along (badly) and this is no help when I’m meant to be stringing my own prose together!

So. Here’s a lovely, tranquil piece that I listen to when writing, and also when meditating. It’s very calming. Hope you enjoy!
