Friday 26th June: A slight change here with an amazing track by one of my all time favourite bands, but not one that is as famous as some of there others – bear with this one and give it a full listening too in a quiet space – I just love it – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9s4JU5gJ1zQSigns of Life by Pink Floyd

Thursday 25th June: Another great start to the day with this track – not only because its a cracking song, but it reminds us that this is about us all, right across the planet – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdT8ixdxPX4All Around the World by Oasis

Wednesday 24th June: Well today is our Virtual Sports Day courtesy of Mr Beckett so it had to be this one (for those of us who remember it) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kd2ySIDtXfgEverybody Wants to Run the World by Tears for Fears

Sunday 21st June: So we arrive at the day that, as a family, we decide we to venture out onto the Fells for the first time in months for a good walk and what happens? Clouds got in my way – hence today’s choice of music – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCnf46boC3IBoth Sides Now by Joni Mitchell or there is the Helena Bonham-Carter versionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CehsApih9fc – or even the Clannad and Paul Young version – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob0mYdbFjdU – (not my favourite though)

Tuesday 16th June: Okay so this one is chosen as a cover of another classic, but this version is so different it is hard to recognise the original Tears for Fears version – this one is chosen because I just love the haunting nature of it and I love the film Donnie Darko which it was used in – if you’ve not watched it then its a good one to check out but is rather surreal – sorry its a sad start to the day but it will stay with you and fits with what is going on with the world right now – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4Mad World sung by Gary Jules

Monday 15th June: Another of those mornings when a song just comes in my mind to sum up how things are in the world around us – who’d have thought that when the country was pulling together so well, we’d soon be confronted with other problems of people leaving rubbish everywhere, being rude to one another and generally forgetting all of that spirit of camaraderie and being in it together – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt2mbGP6vFI Another Day In Paradise by Phil Collins

Sunday 14th June: A suggestion from one of our Facebook followers, and what a gorgeous version of a classic song – and in all honesty I had never heard this version before – love it – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rd8VktT8xYOver the Rainbow sung by Eva Cassidy and there is also this one by Eva Cassidy which has also grabbed me this morning – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWvPOJOYqGATime after Time

Thursday 4th June: I never thought I would be choosing this song, but it was pointed out that my last few had been slower and we needed a rouser for people to sing-a-long to – so here we go….(cannot believe this it today’s choice) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0MK7qz13bULet it Go from Disney’s Frozen

Wednesday 3rd June: Today’s choice is simply because it was used in the background of a programme last night, and I remembered how much I love it and love the words – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb0wQSttGacChild by Mark Owen
