SLS – Car

By this time next week, I should be back at our base in the UK. I have to admit, I am looking forward to being back in our bed, with our “stuff” around us. Fortunately wherever I go in the world I can take my music with me. There is something very comforting about listening […]

SLS – Butterflies

Jim has asked us to feature a song that includes some sort of insect. A sexy song about insects? I was not so sure I could come up with a song this week, but then my girl Taylor never lets me down. I have picked a beautiful song from her and Ed Sheeran that contains […]

SLS – American

Whenever we mention Independence Day to our friends in the UK, they think we are referring to that film with the aliens. But it has been always the big event of the summer, another chance for family to gather and eat a lot of food. Fireworks – lots of fireworks – perhaps more than New […]

SLS – Breakfast

Ben and I are away for a few weeks, but I have scheduled some posts to keep my blog alive, including for the themes Jim has chosen for Song Lyric Sunday. “Breakfast at midnight“, is something than any twenty-two would understand. I love this Taylor song – it is great fun. We need fun after […]

SLS – Cruel

I think we had a Song Lyric Sunday Theme already in the past twelve months that featured the word “cruel”, but I don’t mind because it gives me the chance to pick another song from Taylor Swift that I absolutely love. It seems like a lifetime ago that she released her album “Lover” and we […]

SLS – Comparisons

Thinking caps on for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. Jim has asked us to compare two songs that have a connection. Naturally, I decided to pick two Taylor Swift songs, which are both really about relationships which are broken. But what a difference there is between the two! Taylor’s music has helped me through “break-ups” […]

SLS – Heaven

Taylor Swift gave us two amazing albums in 2020 and I have listened to her new tracks over and over and picked out my firm favourites. My choice for today’s Song Lyric Sunday is one of them. Sometimes TayTay is teased for the host of break-up songs she has produced over the years. This one […]

SLS – Misery

Jim has challenged us this week to find songs of misery and anguish. I can’t go that far – I don’t want to ruin the weekend. But the good news is Taylor is back!!! She kinda knocked the ball out of the park in 2020 (yet again) releasing two albums during the Pandemic that fitted […]

SLS – Tall

All Swifties have their favourite TayTay song, and it can be surprising to hear how different our favourites are. Some just love country music Taylor. Some are so proud of her kickass Reputation album. Some feel that the not one but two albums Taylor released during the pandemic have saved us from going completely crazy. […]

SLS – Think

So for Jim’s theme for today, I have gone with “think”. I hope you don’t mind, but my brain seems to think up more and more Taylor songs as the weeks go by – see what I did there….yuh! “I Think He Knows” is from Taylor’s 2019 album “Lover”, and to me it sounds like […]
