Boys bands… again!

WestlifeBut what else could I post after an extremely manly post like the last one? I had no other choice…
I bring you back again the deceased Westlife, with an extremely beautiful song that I just discovered this week. Have a nice weekend! 🙂

Those were the days!

Peace Train Cat StevensWell, I was innocently cleaning the recently new (in my library) Dolly Parton discography when I stumbled into an amazing song that Dolly covered and I immediately decided that I had to share it in the blog!

Well, I’m talking about Cat Stevens‘ Peace Train, a hymn to peace (heard about it?) and one of my favourite songs 🙂 I’m sure you won’t be indifferent to it, if only for the lyrics.

Just a little detail – gotta love him saying “this music basically”… you’ll hear the rest 😉

PS – the title of the post is the title of another song, also covered by Dolly Parton.

If you grew up in the 90’s…

There are a million ways to end this sentence, but the one I’m thinking of is “you love boys bands!”

90's kids

This might not apply to everyone, but it applies to most people – like me and some of my blog fellows (I won’t say names to avoid ruining your already quite low reputations) -, especially girls!

In my case, Blue is undoubtedly my all-time favourite boys band (Paulo’s post with four of us singing Best in Me is just a taste of how much I like Blue) and I might share some of their songs later in here. Besides Blue, I did not listen to boys bands that much – some Portuguese ones, like Excesso or D’Arrasar, and Backstreet Boys, of course!

But there’s another boys band that I really like – Westlife. They have quite beautiful ballads, some original ones and some really nice covers. I’ll leave you each one of them, both quite beautiful songs 🙂

Neil between the lines

Words Neil Young meaning lifeGuess who’s making the post today? Yeah, that’ll be me 😛 I know I’ve been monopolizing this blog, but the lack of initiative from my blogmates obliges me to do so…
Today I come back to my field of preference – the Classic Rock -, with an artist that has been in this blog twice (through Pedro‘s Heart of Gold and Lourenço‘s post about grunge), Neil Young. Both my Neil favourite songs (Heart of Gold itself and Rockin’ in the Free World) are featured in those posts. But fortunately his 40 years-old career has much more to offer, so it wasn’t hard at all to find a song for this post and I even have two more of his songs ready to another post 😛

So, ladies and gentlemen, from the Harvest album (78th best ever, according to Rolling Stone, by the way), here’s the song that has been my companion along this week – Words (Between the Lines of Age). Hope you like it 😉

If you somehow feel that a 10-minute version is a little long, you can listen to the studio version, of “only” 6:48 minutes 😛
