            I agree completely. I think a lot of folks would tend to overlook it or turn their nose up at the throwaway spring in the song structures and melodies and suchlike, but there is more substance in there than, say, the entire output of 90s popular music.

  1. Hi M — If you happen to see this, I’ve nominated you for the Song a Day Challenge! Details are above. I was unable to leave a comment on your blog, it looks like comments are unavailable on some posts and closed on others.
    I hope you’ll enjoy this challenge! I know how much you love music. If you’re unable to participate for any reason, it’s completely fine and I understand. 🙂


  2. AHA! I just KNEW u were going to put this 1 up!
    Yes, deep n meaningful lyrics – I want to use SH-BOOM SH-BOOM in my fiction – it ought to b in th dictionary
    Notice how I am selecting only UK bands for my series – I guess u probably never heard any of them before? Makes it a more interesting Challenge?
    Next Week: my Day 3 – get ready to ROCK!
    Hope u’re having a Happy Monday!

    1. Haha! 🙂 You know me well!
      It’s good to lighten things up once in a while. I’d love to see sh-boom sh-boom in your fiction! It would be perfect with graphics too.
      I did indeed notice the UK band focus. The distinctive sound is a treat and there’s a lot of talent to choose from. Hearing new songs is a pleasure — we can never have too many new favorites.
      I’m looking forward to your rocking next week!
      Thanks so much and Happy Monday to you as well. 🙂

      1. Of course, in th acronym BRAD, th D stands for Distinctive – why waste time replayin th same ol Lady Po-Go and Justin Bibbel et al when there r countless thousands of unheard gems out there!
        Likewise, hope to listen to another of your scintillating gems nxt wk! Will u make this an ongoing feature on your blog?
        It’s better to lighten things up more frequently than that!

        1. I’m not at all surprised that the D stands for Distinctive! You most certainly are. 🙂 I agree with your approach to music.
          Thanks so much! This may turn into an ongoing feature, but it’s a bit early to tell….
          You’re right about lightening things up more frequently! Hmm…maybe it should be an ongoing feature!
          Will yours become an ongoing feature?

          1. Just had my Sweet Essence Of Giraffe reblogged – it’s not every day u can type something like that! – so maybe, just maybe…
            U cld do anything, Danica, and th bloggers will come from far n wide anyway!
            If I didn’t strive to b distinctive, wld I have lasted this long?
            Th Sh-Boom is strong w this 1!
