Retirement

I’ve decided to retire this blog in 10 days time (just after its 1st birthday).

To finish with a bang I’ll be counting down my 10 Fave Songs of All Time. Favourite songs lists are probably the most difficult of all to come up with, because there are just so many to choose from and so many of them have meant so much to me at different points in my life, but I will give it a shot … Hope you enjoy!

Oh, and it’d be great to also hear about your own fave songs of all time, so comment away below 🙂

Karen O and the Kids – Hideaway

Where the Wild Things Are was a film that left me unsure of whether I liked it or not. I guess the only thing I could say for sure about it is it’s not great and it’s not terrible.

One thing that I didn’t really like was the soundtrack. It’s like Karen O’s voice is too penetrating – it kind of pulls you out of the movie because the songs don’t feel like they’re just there to serve the film.

The flipside of that, however, is that the soundtrack is really good by itself, as hopefully this highlight will prove.
