🎧 My Music Diaries: What I’ve Been Tuning Into This Week 🎶

Hello peeps! 😁 So I’m back again to share more of my musical journey with you. And oh boy, what an interesting week it was! It was like a musical rollercoaster ride with different genres and beats creating a wonderful melody in my ears.

This week was a beautiful blend of the old and the new. I spent most of my listening time with a terrific group that rose to popularity during the ska revival of the late 70s - The Specials. 🎷🎺 From “Ghost Town” to “A Message to You Rudy,” their tunes have been my constant companions these past few days. What’s more, their catchy and crisp lyrics echo in my mind long after the music has stopped.

Possibly, what I loved the most was how their music managed to blend political sensibilities with peppy and danceable tunes so well. It’s no small feat, and no other band has perhaps captured the spirit of that era as they did. So, a big shout out to The Specials! 👏😎

Of course, the playlist didn’t stop there! I got a bit more eclectic with my afternoon listens. Have any of you heard of Sparks? This American duo is a quirky mix of rock, new wave, and synth-pop. This week, I got hooked by their characteristic falsetto vocals and tongue-in-cheek lyrical style. 🎵

In the spirit of variety, I also listened to some cool tunes from The Lemonheads, a catchy and influential indie-rock band, and Super Furry Animals, the psychedelic rock band from Wales. Oh, and can’t forget Roxy Music with their unique blend of glam art-rock that is always a pleasure to listen to! 🎸🥁

To switch things up, I also delved into the laid back sounds of Sublime, bringing back those good old 90s alternative rock vibes. I swayed to Rancid tunes, punks at heart who present some brilliant tracks. 👌

And how could I miss out on the genre-bending sounds of the Beastie Boys? They always get my spirits up! To soothe and balance these explosive beats, Tori Amos made her entrance. Her piano-driven melodies were wonderfully calm and uplifting. 🎹

Vast, with their vast (pun intended 🙈) soundscapes, also had a discreet presence in my playlist. The rock band Warrant brought in some fresh and hard-edged music, and Baxter Dury livened things up with his distinctive sounds.

Till the next post, let the melodies float in the air and let the rhythms get you grooving. Stay groovy, my friends! 🤘🎼
