July sunshine

I’ve had a good, productive day today – lots of day job work finished, lots of admin done, another dance class ticked off (I’m already getting the hang of it again better than I was last week). Also, the in-laws have been here sorting out our garden, and I’m really excited for it to be finished tomorrow!

Geth is out boardgaming this evening, but once he gets back we’re going to finish off our Good Omens rewatch.

Looking forward to a similar day tomorrow.

Newly treated decking
Not an OOTD: another Monday spent in workout gear, another Monday where I didn’t remember to take a photo of it before showering and changing back into my pyjamas! Instead, here’s our garden, with the decking looking all clean and treated. On the fence there’s a bonus sighting of two of the enormously fat pigeons who hang around our garden (next door’s cat isn’t much of a hunter, probably because of the constant racket he makes miaowing all the time).

Today’s earworm playlist:

Gunship – The Mountain
Aerds – Deadline
Duran Duran – Do You Believe In Shame?
Andy Taylor – I Might Lie
Duran Duran – (Reach Up For The) Sunrise
Loreen – Euphoria
Tyler Lyle – Lost And Found [The Midnight Remix]
Duran Duran – The Edge Of America
Duran Duran – (I’m Looking For) Cracks In The Pavement
Duran Duran – The Reflex
Sia – Chandelier
Lauv and Troye Sivan – I’m So Tired

And a bonus track that Geth was humming earlier:

Gunship – When You Grow Up Your Heart Dies

Music Video Monday: recent chart catchup

A few more recently released videos for current chart hits.

Sigala and Becky Hill – Wish You Well

Lots of panoramic shots and dramatic rock formations in this desert-set video. Nice to see Becky Hill onscreen as well – I remember her in The Voice UK absolutely years back now.

Ed Sheeran and Chance The Rapper – Cross Me

Epic dance sequence in this video, with a dancer in a CGI suit turning into various characters before our eyes, including the two artists. It actually shows you quite a lot about how this aspect of CGI works!

Avicii – Heaven

This lovely tribute video shows the stunning scenery of Madagascar. Holiday destination added to the bucket list.

Plus a bonus video for today:

Jax Jones, Martin Solveig and Madison Beer – All Day And Night

Jax and co have released an alternate video for All Day and Night that doesn’t make me feel sick! It’s a fairly standard onstage-in-club affair, but I heartily approve of the lack of nausea when watching it.

More music videos next Monday.
