March 5 is too early in the Slice of Life March Challenge to have writer's block.  I really have nothing that is standing out in my mind that I really want to write about.  I've started and then deleted several bad attempts at today's post, but I know that eventually I'll have to hit that bright orange publish button in the top right of my browser window.

So I grabbed my phone and looked for inspiration in my "Current Faves" playlist.  This is what it sounds like.... a playlist composed of the music I currently like.  It's a fairly fluid playlist.  I take things off and add new music every couple of weeks.  The past few days, I've been thinking that I need some new songs to sing along with as I do housework or drive long distances.

I have 10 and 13 year old daughters. Like their dad and me, they have eclectic musical tastes, but I still get a generous dose of pop music in the car or seeping out from under their bedroom doors.  In the car lately I've been hearing the song "Geronimo" quite a bit.  It's a catchy tune.  It's easy to sing along to.  With a click, I've purchased and added it to my playlist.  The other song I bought today was "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran.  Another song that is singable.

These songs join my eclectic list.  How eclectic?  I'll share with you some randomly selected songs:

  • "Don't Dream It's Over" performed by Sixpence None the Richer
  • "Haven't Met You Yet" by Michael Bublé
  • "Heads Carolina, Tails California" by Jo Dee Messina
  • "Heavy Metal Drummer" by Wilco
  • "I Will" performed by Alison Krauss & Tony Furtado
  • "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac
  • "Night Changes" by One Direction

So, yeah.... I'll listen to just about anything.

And I still need some new music.

Any suggestions?


  1. My favorite right now (besides Fall Out Boy ;) ) is Ghost by Ella Henderson.

  2. I don't have any suggestions - well, maybe some Taylor Swift - but I will say that is a very eclectic list! You WILL listen to anything!

  3. I'm loving Ed Sheeran's whole album at the moment - the song Tenerife Sea has been on repeat for days! Good job pushing through the writer's block! Keep at it - I swear, it gets easier! :-)
