Dancing In The Middle Of The Room

In the past ten years I have been firmly behind the door when it comes to good music.  In the middle of a bad depressive illness anything that provoked an emotional response was definitely most unwelcome and music was a huge factor.

Recently, however, as life has become enjoyable and I have acquired an iphone, I have been attempting to make up for lost time (and spending a fortune in the process).  My latest ‘find’ is The Black Keys, who are just so sublime I can’t begin to tell you.  I have just downloaded ‘Brothers’ which is one of the best albums I’ve ever heard.  I was disappointed to find out online that I missed their UK tour dates because I would have lived on bread and butter for three weeks to go and see them.

Another recent discovery is the Alabama Shakes who are equally fantastic – I was dancing in the kitchen the other night, whilst cooking myself a rather nice supper – steak, rocket and watercress salad, wine – and I realised that life is sometimes rather grand and,  in thinking that,  it is now a definite given that I am recovered, if somewhat broke.  Music, as well as steak, is the food of love.

  1. I love both of them – awesome voices! 🙂 You should check out Frank Turner – he’s hot (which helps), writes fantastic lyrics and has very uplifting music!

  2. I also just discovered The Black Keys fairly recently and you are right…they are fabulous! Isn’t it fun discovering new things? Definitely the key to enjoying life!

  3. Those bands are great! Everlasting Light and You Ain’t Alone are a couple of my favorites-

  4. I am guessing you have been using music to help heal you it is such a wonderful medicine.

    If you have been using iTunes to purchase your tunes please look up http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/solfeggio-harmonics/id327867995

    It comes highly recommended by me as a useful tool in self healing and self help.

    Enjoy your day, may it be full of joy and love, Namaste.
