Reblog: New Music Monday #12

Over the weekend, KK must have listened to loads of new tracks and she picked one out for us today on the blog I share with her, Songshine Sounds.

This is another one I quite like. It has a nice bit of energy in there. I’m trying to think if it reminds me of something. Any suggestions?

Songshine Sounds

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.

This week’s new artist, 6’6 tall singer-songwriter Jake Herring, commonly known as BabyJake, started playing guitar at age eight in Fort Myers, Florida. He gained musical recognition under his given name before releasing his first solo-album Don’t give me more problems, give me more wine in 2020.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 5 July 2021, repeat.

Let me take a moment to write this ditty,
It is certainly funny, and extremely witty,
I worked quite hard to make it rhyme,
And almost succeeded, as you can see.

First published 30th August 2020.

Old Rope

Yesterday, my blogging friend KK published a piece of flash. I liked the idea, had some time spare so I thought I might try writing this one, too.

The constraints were:

  • exactly 75 words
  • incorporating either a revolutionary or a droid. I’m not sure whether these words were just part of the theme, or whether they should be included.

In any case, I included the word revolutionary. I struggled for any droid ideas from this particular photo.

Lastly, themed on the image below:

Malee could hardly believe his fortune. Forty years creating unremarkable noodle soup, a recipe inherited from his mother, its secret ingredients simply forest herbs. And now, one of those herbs, the next big thing, the revolutionary weight loss drug.

“Ah, well”, he reflected to his beautiful wife, still trim after all these years, “if that’s what they believe, who am I to argue?” Pulling a reel of grubby banknotes from his pocket, he began counting.

(75 words.)

If this sparks your interest, why not have a try? You can see how many sentences I wrote, this is only really short. Pingback to me, or leave a comment, or best of all, ping back to KK’s original post, whose link is:
