Morning Pogue, Back in the Day I had a love affair with the music of Joe Jackson. I’m still thinking he wrote some really great songs. But then, fickle as my love is, it moved on to other brighter and shinny things and Joe faded into a collection of memories. Such is life. However music, … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Hi Pogue, When writing yesterdays Monday Musing I found I had a song in my head. As I wandered to the postbox to post you the Musing I was singing it quietly to myself. It seemed relevant to what I saw going on in the world. “What was it?’” you ask. It was America by … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Something a little irreligious this morning😎 I was standing in a shop waiting for someone who was browsing and…this song dropped from an over head speaker! I went from mindlessly drifting on my thoughts to attention. I liked this and, despite being recorded several years ago, I’d never heard it. Let me share it … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Greetings Pogue, Sometimes I just need a song to help me keep up the pace as I move though the day. A song to help me bop along. It’ll reenergise me and sing along in my head, shutting out the noise. I hope you know what I mean? Well, George Ezra writes songs that are … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Saturday morning. Ready to slow down for the weekend? Chill a little? Well I came across a new artist, sort of a fortunate accident, this week. And I’m really enjoying him. Take a listen to Paul Kelly and see what you think. And…enjoy the weekend. Do things that cause you to smile and make … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Sometimes you see entertainment shows where the guest is asked; ”if you could meet anybody who would it be?” I always find myself spending time trying to establish who I would like to meet. My list is exceedingly small because, well, they say you shouldn’t meet your hero’s, at least not if they are … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Dear Pogue, You know what? Your mother and I met 41 years ago this week! And we’re still together, an item, a couple. I’m guessing that in todays world that’s quite an achievement. Yes we met young but here we are all these years later😊 So this week I’ve been listening to this song which … Continue reading Songs To …What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, It’s a driving day. I’m in the car. The sun is shinning and there is not a lot on the roads. Oh, and I have my sunglasses on, of course. Cool by default.😎 So here’s one of my favourite driving tunes and being all on my own, I can play it on repeat. This … Continue reading Songs To …What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, All this talk about God, the Universe, relationships, over the last few letters. It is bound to lead one’s mind to a certain place and it’s precisely from that place that I’ve found this song. A band I haven’t listen to in a while but I will be now. Follow the link to hear … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Well Pogue, After yesterdays letter I thought what more appropriate to listen to than Time by Pink Floyd. You’ve got to love a bit of Floyd! So I played it, and of course then you have to listen to the whole album which it comes from, Dark Side Of The Moon, an absolute classic. And … Continue reading Songs To …What I’m Listening To Now.
Well Pogue, As you know I’ve been letting my thoughts explore the influence of parents on children and asking how it effects each of us. And when I focus on a particular subject my mind begins to pick out songs, poems and the like which tie to the subject. It’s like, you think of yellow … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Thought I’d follow up on Christmas and a gift I was given. You remember that I received a copy of Barack Obama’s and Bruce Springsteen’s book, Renegades - Born In The USA. It’s proving a really good read having been produced as a series of conversations covering subjects as diverse as their childhood’s, their … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.

Pogue, Another week gone and a new one lays ahead. Not a whole lot has happened in the last seven days and in times like this it is useful to take stock of the small things. You listened to the Kate Bush song I sent you last week? A song about the pleasure in recalling … Continue reading Monday Musing
What’s Up Pogue, Here’s a song that tells a story of those moments of pleasure that make up our fondest memories.

All the cosmic tumblers were lined up … Continue reading Songs To Pogue… What I’m Listening To Now
Dear Pogue, One last song for this year. A song that gives hope, at least for me. A song about relationship. It’s a cover version but I like this one and it finishes the year well. Nothing Else Matters, originally by Metallica, covered by Smith and Myers as an acoustic version. As the New Year … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m listening to now
Pogue, I guess we’re all listening to Christmas songs whether we like it or not😏Every time you turn the radio on there they are.

New artist Pogue, At least in my world. So I bought a new pair of headphones and along comes Apple offering me 6 months free subscription to Apple Music. It’s not the first time they’ve offered and I’ve resisted because, well, I’m old school and use Napster. But this morning I succumbed because I thought … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m listening to now
What’s Up Pogue 😎, All this temporary accommodation I’ve lived in recently and the living out of suitcases…it’s made me remiss in sharing my music with you.

Pogue, A more recent oldie for you (does that even make sense?). I’ve been singing this in my head for a few days as I travel around. I’m on the road this week. I’ve sold my home. I’ve given away half my possessions and…life feels good and I‘m sitting here and really, really appreciating the … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to.
Pogue, Well we talked James Taylor in our Monday Musings. So here Fire and Rain which really is one of the all time great songs.

Pogue, New artist, at least for me, probably not for you🤔 So I heard this song while enjoying some Chinese food with friends (and a cheeky beer😳). And I had to share it. Not much else to say. So here is Rictor with You and Me and Somehow. https://youtu.be/hizS3hqZ-qk I hope you really enjoy this. … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
Pogue, This is to help you feel good in a hectic week. I follow a lady poet who has a site by the title That Gut Wrenching Poetry. She writes some good stuff. So this week she posted Rambles:Is This Love? And me, my mind went straight to this song. https://youtu.be/vmezIIrFQmY I know, an oldie. … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
Hey Pogue, Just been sitting in my favourite coffee shop and enjoying a flat white (2 actually) and some of that excellent cake that they always seem to have. And as always, while I sipped, I listened to the cool sounds that filled the air. What a great way to spend the morning. To top … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To
Pogue, I know we both like a bit of Guardians of the Galaxy. We’ve sat and watch all the films together. And the music, the music is so good! Well there’s one song from the first film that came up this week but with a very different interpretation. It immediately caught my attention and I … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To
Pogue, We've been having a series of rather spiritually slanted letters, what with "Go deep or go home" and "Prayer, I still don't understand". So I have been listening to some music in keeping with the mood. I'm also half way through "Rememberings", Sinead O'Connor's autobiography and as a result I thought I ought to … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To
Pogue, This is a very indulgent letter. I received an email from a lady who had chosen to share a moment of vulnerability with me. I was humbled that someone who is just a few steps beyond being a stranger should chose me to share something that, despite the context, was precious. I thanked her, … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
