Well good morning everybody!
This week I’ve gone back to 2004 with Franz Ferdinand’s “Take me out”.
It reached #3 in the UK singles chart and #1 in UK indie chart. And I can definitely see why!
The beginning always lulls me into a false sense of security as it’s quite mellow and then the guitar kicks in and the whole song changes. I love the lyrics, I love their voices and, most importantly, I adore the video.
Now onto the poetry.
Last night, whilst watching Skins and sobbing (I was literally sobbing, this isn’t an exaggeration) I wrote the first piece of poetry that I’ve been really happy with for a long time. It said exactly what it needed to and in a much more subtle way than my writing normally does. I wanted it to be just enough and not too much and I feel like it is and I want to share it but, once again, my fear of over-exposure holds me back. We’ll see how it goes.
