Watch the Formula 1 theme come to life

I like the Formula 1 theme that plays at the beginning of every Formula 1 race. Logically, I knew it had to have been produced in some way. I just wasn’t expecting it to be performed quite like this: https://youtu.be/8AYy-BcjRXg That movie soundtrack genius Brian Tyler produced this theme track makes this even more awesome!…… Continue reading Watch the Formula 1 theme come to life

Mumford & Sons album Delta is awesome

I only just noticed that Mumford & Sons have a new(ish) album, Delta. I’m listening to it as I work, and it’s really good! I’ve basically had “If I say” on repeat for the last 15 minutes: https://open.spotify.com/track/5bfujypYjuNsB1DynNwaG7?si=MLTC_4TcRfavUyEA1Vbq3Q You can listen to the whole album on Spotify, and wherever else fine albums may be streamed…… Continue reading Mumford & Sons album Delta is awesome

Vicarious adventures with GoPro

Vicarious adventures with GoPro One of my new favourite YouTube channels is the GoPro channel. It’s an awesome channel for vicarious adventures, and some great music I wasn’t aware of. One of my favourite videos is this promo of the GoPro HERO6: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr0qNXmkUJ8 The track in this video is A Moment Apart by Odesza, and…… Continue reading Vicarious adventures with GoPro

I’ve been listening to two artists I hadn’t come across until recently. The first artist who’s new to me is an Israeli artist/band called Narkis. I head their song ״ממה אתה בורח״ (“What are you running from?”) in a Spotify playlist titled ״בדרך״ yesterday, and I’m obsessed: https://open.spotify.com/track/5hoogk54DXtZcJnTFZaeHJ?si=egojQYxfQ_Gb7E4dIBlaAA I went looking for a music video…… Continue reading My introduction to Narkis and Claire Guerreso

We watched Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword today. I’ve been listening to Daniel Pemberton’s soundtrack for the last week or so, and was looking forward to watching the movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rbPTQIdjmY The movie didn’t do well at the Box Office, and a series of sequels was scrapped. That’s a big pity. I really…… Continue reading I enjoyed Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie

Feeling a bit better with this song

I’ve had a rough week or two with more anxiety and depression than usual. Music tends to help my mood, and “Like Gold” by Vance Joy is one of those songs for me: https://open.spotify.com/track/3P4spaSr7co8diWOj72X9A?si=j5FElvM2S3a9F3L-upAOcw Actually, I’m really enjoying Vance Joy generally at the moment. Here’a a great playlist to binge with: https://open.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/37i9dQZF1DWVzMOBac4fUJ?si=VOHOUts3RUOkv_X6yETDCg

The music that helps get me up those hills

I’ve been running for the last two months (not continuously), and I’ve experimented with some sort of audio accompaniment to help pass the time. I started off listening to podcasts, and while this helped me get through more of my podcast backlog, listening to podcasts doesn’t really give me that extra oompf to get up…… Continue reading The music that helps get me up those hills
