Pogue, A moment of seasonal nostalgia. The same songs come round again and again and, forbid I should say it, some are becoming like hymns! Written in ages past and yet held by the faithful to still be relevant. Yes, some are absolute classics. John Lennon, Chris de Burgh, Greg Lake, Slade… But I am … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Saturday morning and there’s no rush. No need to get out and head to work. Sweeeet! So here we are just sitting and taking time to enjoy that first cup of coffee. To really savour the flavour. And letting our minds drift, free from the pressures of the week. But we need a song … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Well Pogue, After yesterday’s musing I guess we need to sit a savour the songs of one of those master wordsmiths I mentioned. I’ve gone for Bruce as, well, why wouldn’t I. I mean, this song was from his first album and he was already writing this well. Just enjoy. https://youtu.be/uozMTmEjxHc And if you want … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Dear Pogue, Do you ever read something and ask yourself: “How does that woman think?” or “What’s gone on in his life that he can write that?” I find myself doing it more and more these days. In fact instead of considering that I’m increasing my knowledge I continually find myself realising how small my … Continue reading Monday Musings
Pogue, I went to a concert on Saturday just gone. I saw a band called Nearly Dan, a Steely Dan tribute band. I can hear your brain already, wondering, “Dan who?” But stay with me here. Back in the day I really loved the music of Steely Dan. I owned most of their albums. And … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listen To Now.
I believe music fills the universe. That the day and night are filled with rhythm but far too many are not aware and never hear it. And that is sad because if more heard and felt that which moves around us all the time, there would be less division, less strife. There would be harmony. … Continue reading Maybe…a moment from my craziness.
Pogue, We need a song, we really do. Life has been so busy and distracting that I haven’t sent you a song for a while. My bad! I’m sorry🥺 But here’s a song I’ve just heard and it’s going around my head so, please, have it. It’s a band that’s new to me but I … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’mListening To Now..
Hi, Someone wrote me and said I’d upped my poetry game but poetry seemed to be my language of grief. Hmmm, maybe. I have felt rather sad of late and I do feel that giving our expression to feelings is a healthy thing and helps us to understand them. So I’ve found myself listening to … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Well Pogue, It’s been a rather sad week for me and I think we are drawn to music that gives expression to what we feel. Like, you emanate a feeling, you vibrate at a certain wavelength and you draw to yourself things that exist at that wavelength - Law of Attraction 101. So I’ve been … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Pogue, In this envelope is a reason to have a quick bop. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/205-bP7JyDI Have a good day, Wic.
So Pogue, Sometimes something is not in your life and not in your life and then…it is. It just moves in without warning or invitation. And that’s OK if it’s a good thing, not so good if it’s not. But, I had a good one. This song which I liked way back and then left … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Rock on Pogue, Did you sit late into the evening and listening to Glastonbury? I did. Not that Sundays lineup held a lot of interest but Saturday night. Great! And as you know if you were watching, Macca, Paul McCartney headlined. I have to admit to being a little dubious as to whether he could … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
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.

We lay beneath the sheetsDetermine to set a moodTo re-enact days now passedTo find the memories and … Continue reading An Old Friend
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. And there are those special unique moments such as your first kiss, or maybe that night you spent with friends and you wished it would never end. 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. And in fairness there are some good songs played at Christmas, and some really lame ones🥺 One of my favourites that I never seem to tire of is Driving Home For … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m listening to now
