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.

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.

It’s a song about … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
Pogue, You have just moved to new house. A new home. I've moved out of my house, and am pausing for a month or two and then moving into a new house. New home. So I'm out shopping yesterday evening as I have a wedding this coming weekend and had thrown out all formal shirts … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
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. That’s official, at least on Letters To Pogue😎 This was written, well, before you were born so I suppose I can forgive you for not knowing it, but, hey, you … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to
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.

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, Dropping through your letterbox this morning is a random song that I heard by two artists I like. However I was unaware they had recorded together until I stumbled across this last week. Bonus I’m thinking! I don’t know that you’ll be aware of either artist. Sometimes being young isn’t all good😌 or all … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Pogue, Here’s a song that was on my first playlist when I started snowboarding. I still like it but...COVID...I haven’t snowboard in over a year as I haven’t been able to travel. Such is life🥺 Roll on normality. But this week I have listen to Joss Stone singing Super Duper Love. I chosen a version … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Here we go Pogue, Two guys we can roll with, two guitars rocking it out, what's not to like. And a catchy song, No Diggity, with lyrics, well you can decide what you think.

Pogue, Here is an oldie you will never have heard I’m sure. You know how someone says something and it ignites a memory and some thoughts? Well that’s what happened here, Crazy or what? I hadn’t played this song in many years and it came straight back. It”s true, you can’t keep a good song … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now
Pogue, Continuing our ‘love’ theme I am about to have a moment of complete self indulgence, which really are the best kind of moments, are we not agreed? A few years ago (actually “a few years” plus a few more but...who’s counting?) I went to an open air concert to see the Rolling Stones. It … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now❤️
Hey Pogue, So you read the letter, the Musing, I sent you yesterday? The pain I had endured with a smile, a coffee, a KitKat and a conversation? Well I’m back! BMW delivered my machine back to me, like shiney new. And the sun broke out yesterday afternoon. And I rode. Deep Joy🤩. And while … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening to…Because I Rode

Hey Pogue, Here’s a love song to curl up and listen to quietly with the lights turned down low. As we explore love and what it’s all about this song brings out some of the mismatch and wrong motivation I’m thinking. A love failing perhaps. But a beautiful haunting song that, I hope, will touch … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now💓
Pogue, It’s Valentines Day. Young men’s hearts are turning to love💕 and roses have trebled in price. That’s romance.

Have you ever noticed that. … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now👩❤️💋👨
Morning Pogue, And this is what I've been listening to for the past few days. You know some thing, a song maybe, just pops into your head. You find yourself humming the tune or maybe singing the song, but if you stop and think, you can't see a reason why it might be there. Weird … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Pogue, So I'm writing away the other day and I just needed music. A fix you might say. Which is unusual as I normally write in silence so I can hear the inspiration (even as I write this I hear you saying, "What inspiration"). I did say "hear it" and not heed it! Anyway, you're … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Pogue, You’ve had Songs To Pogue this week but I couldn’t resist out staying my welcome with a second tune.
