The rabbit hole that is YouTube
But YouTube then tempts you with other song suggestions and suddenly you’re off, listening to one song after another and having a grand old time.
Actually, can you tell I enjoy this particular rabbit hole? I refuse to call it a time-waster or source of procrastination because I find a lot of inspiration in music. And I love to have a theme song for whichever book I’m working on. For my current work-in-progress I have three songs:
1. Foolish Games, Jewel
2. Kiss Somebody, Morgan Evans
3. Simply Irresistible, Robert Palmer
I heard that second song on my road trip to Tassie, and I jotted it down for future reference…and to research the artist because I wasn’t familiar with Morgan Evans.
Well, slap my thigh and call me Susan—he’s a Newcastle boy (my hometown)! AND he has the sweetest grin on the planet (check out the film clip to While We’re Young…just the first little bit, and you’ll see what I mean...as a bonus there's a stunning beach in the film clip too).
How has he never crossed my path? (I’m talking figuratively not literally here…still ;-) ). And then I came across this particular YouTube clip and it amazed me what he did with his "American" band. The clip is long, but interesting. And, hey, let's admit it -- he's not hard on the eyes is he?
So tell me, have you made a recent musical discovery? Do share…there’s a rabbit hole that’s beckoning. ;-)
