Song of the week: week 18. (And some stuff about poetry)

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.

    Wow, 10 years gone by since FF released their debut album! Time goes by so fast! Alex and the boys have done a marvellous job on this and their sophomore was almost equally good. Their third one was a bit of a disappointment though…
