On a day like today in 1954 and 1966…

On a day like today in 1954, my favourite person in the world was born…

My dad and I <3
My dad and I <3

I’m talking about my dad!!!

Happy birthday to my soul mate.

Apart from being an exceptionally incredible dad, he’s free spirited, wacky, funny, quirky, loving, caring and I admire him a hell of a lot!

Thank you for never giving up on your dreams, for following your passions and for believing in yourself, because thanks to that, I can do and be exactly who I want to be every single day!

I LOVE YOU!!!

Also on this day, buy back in 1966 (50 years ago), Pet Sounds was released.

Pet Sounds is the name of american rock band the Beach Boys 11th studio album.

Songs like Wouldn’t It Be Nice, God Only Knows, Sloop John B and  You Still Believe In Me are on this absolutely terrific album.

Pet Sounds is considered to be one of the most influential albums is music history.

(and I couldn’t agree more! Have a listen to the album from beginning to end when possible!)

Have a listen to one my favourite Beach Boys songs, God Only Knows featured on Pet Sounds, here!

Do you remember…?

As today is Thursday, I woke up in a funky mood…

Does Sophie Ellis-Bextor ring a bell?

She became well known in the 90’s as the lead singer of Theaudience (indie rock band, formed in London, England).

In the early 2000’s, Bextor decided to fly solo and became a worldwide phenomenon with songs such as Murder On The Dance Floor, Get Over You and Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love) in which she collaborated with Spiller.

And it’s that last song I mentioned that’s been on my mind for a few days now.

BLAST FROM THE PAST, fo sure!

Enjoy and remember, live it up, have fun and be careful!
