I'm a girl who grew up in the 80s so I listened to New Wave mostly, I went out with friends in a New Wave pub and my parents went mental hearing the same old music over and over again and watching me dress in black. But I still love listening to that kind of music. Even though I love all kinds of music I think I will always be that New Wave girl at heart.
one we danced a lot on:

It's pouring outside! I just got home soaking wet and I couldn't be happier to be honest. I've just made a large pot of tea and it's only raining harder and getting darker.
Maybe I'll curl up with a book later. I can't put my finger on it, but I've always been happier when it rains even as a kid. So let it rain for now, just for me.
I loved this as a kid;

Here we go again. I feel like I'm constantly repeating myself over and over again on this blog and never getting any closer to where I want to go. But I feel stuck again; I feel lost. I feel lonely. I'm depressed maybe and I don't know what to do about it. Maybe I do maybe the answer is staring me right in the face and I don't see it, but the fact is I am down, restless, anxious and feeling so very much alone.
So why don't I just go and do that you ask? Well that's a very good question; I just don't know. My body is hurting, my back aches, my shoulders ache and there's a strange thing in my stomach that the doc says is stress related but I'm wondering if that's the case. I also have a lot of hormonal issues. Boy if I knew that menopause caused all that trouble I would skip it. Oh wait, you can't... damn.
All in all if I look at myself right now I see a sad, unhappy person and I know that tomorrow that can change again.
That's just the frustrating thing really; the constant changing of emotions, one day you're up the next you're down. My mother once said I always had that but I'm not sure I did, it's gotten worse in menopause. And I'm only 47 and I'm already in it from age 39!
My youngest son is 17, almost 18. He has a mild case of autism and ADHD. He has a girlfriend and his hormones are raging! So not only is he reacting differently because of his autism (which he thinks is bs) he also reacts more intense because of his hormones and I of course react back with my hormonal imbalance.
Some days the old Napoleon XIV song is on repeat in my head;
They're coming to take me away Ha Ha They're coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes
They're coming to take me away ha ha...

In the late 60' throughout the 70's and early 80's we had Funk good old Funk; a music mixture of Soul, Jazz and R&B really. With artists like Sly & the Family Stone, Chaka Khan, Kool& the Gang, Kc & the Sunshine band, The Tower of Power and of course James Brown. It never really went away but other music genres came (and went) and the real Funky grove never came back in style.
Until now; Funk is Back and we will now it! I'm glad really, I still listen to that old Funky music and can't sit still.
So shake you're groove thing and listen to some new Funk (and some old)
and last but not least one band that always makes me move ;)

A new love muic wise has entered my life; his name is Fink and I am hooked! Completely hooked on his music! I just can't go a day without it. I'm a Spotify listener and I love the melancholic musiclists and there he was.
