Music Monday - Vanessa Carlton (Pride Month)

This meme is hosted over at Always Me

I remember hearing it when my father would turn on the oldies station in the car. I really liked it. It was a sweet song and I’ve always been interested in piano driven music. Maybe it was where I forced to play piano as a kiddo. No, I remember nothing about it. I can’t even read music. Wish I could! I’d love to play now!

Anyway! Back to the music. I was looking for artists to feature for Pride that I’ve not done before and found out that Vanessa Carlton actually came out as bi back in my hometown of Nashville in 2010. 


"'It was two female fans who inspired the 35-year-old singer-songwriter to come out as a "proud bisexual woman" during a 2010 performance at Nashville Pride.

When she spotted the couple in the audience, Carlton said she "felt their pain, in a way," and felt inspired to come out on the spot.

"I wanted to connect with them," she said. "I wanted them to know I understood."

Carlton said the declaration hasn't had a major impact on her music "one way or the other." Still, she added, "People that are really struggling with their sexuality will feel comfortable talking with me about it, or they'll be like, 'Thank you.'" - HuffPost


So let's jump into these songs! Let's start with the one that got super popular back in 2002. 

That's it for this week! Let me know which one you enjoy the most! I hope you have a great week and stay safe!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
