Piano Man – Billy Joel (February 8th 2015)

So this is definitely my favourite Billy Joel song but I tried to do a poll with friends on Facebook to work out a top ten, it wasn’t so successful :-).

Piano Man came first with 3 votes, Innocent Man a close second with 2 votes and then 9 other songs with 1 vote each……Honesty, She’s always a woman, modern woman, just the way you are, good night saigon, up town girl, we didn’t start the fire, my life, new york state of mind…….

it is very challenging to pick just one Billy Joel song but equally as challenging to get a top five or ten.

The reason I wanted to pick a Billy Joel song is that he is an artist that we listened to a lot as kids, and I mean a lot. I have been to two of his concerts and they were both amazing. Brilliant guy and any of his songs bring back fond memories of my childhood.

Burn the pages – Sia (February 1st 2015)

I love Sia. she has the best lyrics and that voice, seriously, how is that possible??? she has written songs that I wouldn’t admit publicly that I like such as Diamonds by Rihanna,

Below is an excerpt from this song that I try to live by…i.e. not living in the past

“…..Yesterday is gone and you will be OK
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook
Yesterday is dead and gone and so today
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook…….”

Switch Lanes – Tkay Maidza (February 1st 2015)

Yay to a great female aussie hip hop artist….its been a while.

This track is fun, great to dance to and it also made it in the 2014 Triple J Hottest 100, in at 100. (and I voted for this one too, it was hard to pick a top ten but I decided to vote for as many female artists as possible). Another artist where I found out that they were playing in Canberra, the day after they had played…..damn it!

minipops 67 – Aphex Twin (February 1st 2015)

First album in 13 years….thank you Aphex Twin. This has to be my favourite song on the album well for the moment anyway.

My sister and I saw him in Melbourne quite a while back  (2004 at the Prince of Wales, Melbourne), one of the best electronic concerts I have been to. We were introduced to Luke Vibert who played before Aphex Twin. The best type of concert, where you get to see one of your favourite artists and they introduce you to someone new.
