Song of the last two days

You may have noticed my absence yesterday so I have two days to backtrack. But it's only one song so easy done!! This one is fantastic. Again it's by the amazing McFly. It's called Nowhere Left To Run. Clip is below as normal. Out.

Today's song

Today I had to choose Lies by McFly. I can't believe a full week has gone since my last McFly gig and already I am looking forward to the next one, as well as a possible fan club membership so I can meet them hehe. I deserve it, I've been a McFly fan for almost an entire decade and if that's not dedication then I don't know what is! I even got a certificate at school once saying "Most dedicated McFly fan!" and I was on the street team where they would mail out leaflets for me to give out (and decorate my school books with!). I still have them in my loft, alongside a pile of posters tied with a ribbon. I must retrieve it all. I had a load of stickers as well. 

Anyway, back to the song!! They played this last week, which was fantastic as I love it. Lies by McFly. Happy times. Enjoy!!

I recently found a load of notebooks I started writing when I was 15 or something like that. I started to keep track of favourite songs and make lists from it, a bit like a primitive version of (which I am on now, you can find me here). I started off writing a 'song of the day' in a diary and then from there make charts with regards to most favourited songs in a given period. From the diary I went into a notebook I had specially set aside for this song of the day and it shows a good example of the sorts of things that I was listening to a few years back. Some of which I would rather not associate myself with ever again (the offending albums have been binned).

Today I thought about starting it up again. I do like making lists and keeping things in order. I therefore have two days worth songs to catch up on.

Yesterday my most favourited song has to be Gloria by Canterbury.

The beauty of having my iPod on shuffle on long journeys is the variety of music that comes on and the first time this popped on I immediately fell in love with it. It's so beautiful.

Today's song I favourited is also beautiful. My beloved Björn Dixgård and Gustaf Noren have formed a side project away from Mando Diao called Caligola. After much aggravation over the appalling availability of music in the UK, I managed to get my hands on a copy of their debut album, Back To Earth - Thank you Germany for coming to my rescue once again. Now, I have prattled on long enough now that I had better plug the song!! Possibly my favourite song on Back To Earth this is called Morning Light. Words cannot describe how happy this song makes me feel. So amazing, thanks guys.

books I read this week

It's Friday the 13th of April. I've been travelling a lot these last couple of weeks so managed to fit in a lot of extensive reading. Here are what I got up to along with critic reviews:

Phantom - Jo Nesbo'Nesbo wrings out the tension, by turns painful and delicious, with consummate skill. The surprises come like an avalanche as the end nears, engulfing everything in its path, including Harry Hole.'
- Daily Express

Sputnik Sweetheart - Haruki Murakami
'Though Murakami seems to invite us to join him in a straightforward mystery adventure, he in fact does something much more upsetting. He frees us from his narrative in much the same way that his characters finally shake loose of one another - he sends us spinning, orbiting wildly. In doing so, he surely accomplishes the best, most unnerving job of fiction: to force you to look hard at the parts of yourself you never even suspected were there.'
- The Guardian

American Psycho - Bret Easton Ellis
'American Psycho is a beautifully controlled, careful, important novel which revolves about its own nasty bits. Brilliant.'
- The Guardian 
South of The Border, West of The Sun - Haruki Murakami
'This wise and beautiful book is full of hidden truths, but perhaps this is its most essential one, unbearable though it may be to contemplate.'
- The New York Times 
Karlology - Karl Pilkington
Happyslapped by a Jellyfish - Karl Pilkington

Those last two don't even need a review. Very very humourous is all that needs to be said.
