    Fri 19 Mar – GUN + Morpheus Rising

    Friday 19th March: First up tonight was a quick dash into taown after work to see my daughter and her schoolmates, along with children from three other schools, sing in York Minster. I have to say I was very impressed. The children, all aged around seven and eight, performed something in the region of fifteen songs (each school had one song to themselves and the rest were joint efforts) the vast majority of which were in foreign languages. It went some way to explain why Elizabeth had been walking around the house singing gibberish for the last few months. The whole thing seemed to go off without a hitch and everybody involved deserves masses of plaudits for the amount of effort that went into the event.

    Then, after a quick tea with Elizabeth and Debbie, normal musical service was resumed with a trip to the Duchess for something a littlebit louder.

I'm fairly certain that I got the best night.

First impressions weren't good (the lead singer's covered in tattoos, has spiky hair and is that eye-liner he's wearing??? Yes, folks, I'm turning into my Mum...) but once I got a pint and started listening, I realised that you really shouldn't judge a band by what the lead singer's covered in.

    In this Journal, I'll keep track of my all-times-favorite's. since I am a recent addict to, not all of my favorite music has been played or scrobbled.

    I'll post a few great songs in this journal and update regularly (not that all the numbers are in the right order or anything, still, Blackes Eyes is my all-time-favorate at the moment of speaking). If you think I should listen to 'This Great Song', go ahead and notice me about this great song!
