Does your spirit crave the new? I know mine does. So every Monday, I will feature a new song that wasn’t even in existence the week before. Yes, it’s true. Great new music is still being made every week. I will mix up the genres and artists to keep the surprises coming.

Sour Grapes

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 31 May 2021, beserk.

“I just can’t sell my wine”, he lamented,
So the grower new wine press invented,
As it started to work,
The machine went beserk,
And the vintner was duly fermented.

Reblog: Songshine Sunday #7

KK just posted on our blog, Songshine Sounds.

The thing about the Sunday track is that it is supposed to be uplifting, and I think this hits the mark, don’t you? I can certainly hear the twangs that I associate with African music in there.

Graphig for the Songshine Sunday post

Whether or not there’s sunshine where you are in the world this Sunday, we hope you’ll enjoy a sunny track, and that it uplifts your spirit.


To celebrate World Africa Day, which was May 25th, a trio of powerhouse artists, David Guetta, Akon and Master KG, collaborated to bring us a new uplifting track, “Shine Your Light.” It’s impossible to not feel a glow from the positive energy, and afro-house rhythms radiating from this song.

Thicker Than Water

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 30 May 2021, transitory.

A romeo from Bangalore,
So adored by his wife, she was sore,
But he badmouthed her dad,
And the missus got mad,
Now he’s sleeping in dog-house once more.

An Education

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of of 29 May 2021, permeate.

To set stink bomb off somewhere secluded,
But when smell permeated,
Through those corridors hated,
The headmistress said “Son, you’re excluded”
