Mood music…

You know that moment when you make a spur of the moment decision to see a movie during the day on your own and it’s a film starring your girl crush Carey Mulligan set in 1870 and you walk out feeling all proper and lady like.

And then you catch yourself checking out a really hot blind guy with a really big cane.

And you feel perhaps you’re not as ladylike as you had previously thought.


It’s so strange how quickly music and images can change your mood and make you feel like a whole different person.

It’s lovely though isn’t it.

Listening to different music and feeling different because of it.

This of course doesn’t always work to your advantage.

The shuffle on my phone is contaminated and can’t be trusted due to the large volume of Christmas tunes and Afghani lute music in my library.

Don’t ask.

But the songs that take you somewhere else and make you feel something else are magical.

Songs from your childhood.

Songs from movies.

Certain songs by Elton John?

Songs from places you’ve been and places where you felt something.

I don’t know much about music but I know what I like and what I feel.

And I always dance like nobody’s watching… especially when they are. x
