A Song A Day: 16th April – Busy DJB!

16 04 2011

Now, normally I’ll write my blog post for the day as one of the last things I do before I go to sleep. I normally use the time machine function to set it to post at 1am to make sure it’s all ok. However last night I was a very tired Daniel so I decided to write it in the morning, which is why it’s later then normal, but it’s still on the right day so swings and roundabouts. It’s as broad as it is long.

Yesterday was actually a pretty darn fun day for the most part. I was shed-building with my parents! Yes, it was one of those flatpack jobs with borderline vague instructions in a million and one languages except logical. It took several hours to go together and just a few choice words uttered at certain times. I stopped part way through to get some kind of dinner together for my parents which was fun also!

ANYWAY…In between all this, I got a phone call asking me if I can come in for a job interview….tomorrow (which is now today) – so this afternoon I’m attending an interview at the Premier Inn for a night-time receptionist job (wish me luck!)

So yes, I’m in a pretty good mood at the moment, and with the job interview in mind, I cannot help but to think of this song.. Today I present to you… Still of the Night by Whitesnake. It’s a healthy dose of classic-rock. The hair is big, the guitar tone is big and the song is rather epic… That’s what I call a good deal :-P

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the Still of the Night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what’s in store,
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
And I can’t take no more, no, no

Now I just wanna get close to you
An’ taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat…

In the Still of the Night…
In the Still of the Night…
Over here baby…

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I’m waiting for the night to come

In the Still of the Night,
In the cool moonlight,
I feel heart is aching
In the Still of the Night…

Tell me here baby

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door…
In the Still of the Night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more…

Now I just wanna get close to you
An’ taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat.

In the Still of the Night…

Still of the Night,
Still of the Night,
Still of the Night…

A Song A Day: April 11th – No Way To Slow Down!

11 04 2011

You'll see what I did here....

We’re now into triple figures now on this blog. 100 songs, 100 days and nearly 700 comments since January. I’ve had over 4000 views since January and I even broke 200 views in one day alone way back when. I have no intentions of slowing down though!

I’ve had an easy weekend, with a family meal and a nice lazy sunday. Some wicked pork-steaks with apple sauce and the obligatory crackling alongside!

I’m hoping that the weather we’ve had this weekend extends into the week ahead. It’s been nice waking up and sitting in the evening with the breeze and sunlight coming in through my window. The temperature even broke the 20oC mark!

I’m pretty tired as I write this, so I’m going to get some sleep and leave you with one song which I’ve been enjoying the heck out of recently.

Stay tuned for some exciting info also soon!

Today’s song is Jethro Tull’s masterpiece, Locomotive Breath

In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath,
Runs the all-time loser,
Headlong to his death.
He feels the piston scraping —
Steam breaking on his brow —
Thank God, he stole the handle and
The train won’t stop going —
No way to slow down.
He sees his children jumping off
At the stations — one by one.
His woman and his best friend —
In bed and having fun.
He’s crawling down the corridor
On his hands and knees —
Old Charlie stole the handle and
The train won’t stop going —
No way to slow down.
He hears the silence howling —
Catches angels as they fall.
And the all-time winner
Has got him by the balls.
He picks up Gideon’s Bible —
Open at page one —
God stole the handle and
The train won’t stop going —
No way to slow down.
