All that I am, all that I ever was…

I am more than my mental health. I am more than my homelessness. I am more than any one aspect of me. I am Addy. And this is…

Music for Monday: Stronger when naked

1 Comment

Earlier this year, before my relapse, I began working through a thirty day song challenge that I discovered on MM172001’s blog. Now that things are more settled I’ve decided to pick up where I left off, only instead of doing it daily, I’ll be sharing my responses weekly. Who knows, perhaps you’ll discover some new songs to love or a few old favourites to re-live! :)

A song that is my guilty pleasure

Stronger | Britney Spears

More often than not, when I mention my love for songstress Britney Spears the words Oops I did it again follow shortly after, which is because the title track of her second album is a song I cherish beyond all measure. But I’m also a huge fan of the second track of this album, Stronger, because it takes me back to the heady days of my backpacking adventures and is a bit of a personal ‘psych myself up’ anthem.

Stronger than yesterday
Now it’s nothing but my way
My loneliness ain’t killing me no more
I’m stronger”

A song I liked when I was younger

Naked | Louise

To be honest, I’m not all that ashamed that this was the very first single I ever purchased. Sure, it’s a cheesy pop anthem rather than a prog-rock classic or folk-rock work of genius, but compared to the output of today’s pop studios, this is very almost a work of art. Also, popstars take note…it’s entirely possible to be sexy without taking your clothes off.

“I lie awake, hesitate between love and hate
I know you’ve been feeding my infatuation
I can see you and me doing things we shouldn’t be
I can’t seem to stop my imagination”

One thought on “Music for Monday: Stronger when naked

  1. Britney has a new album out soon believe it or not and Louise is currently ona Brit TV show about how not to grow old.
    What am I currently7 listening to well at this minute I am playing a recent charity shop purchase of Prince Greatest Hits – never a great fan at the time I am now enjoying this album and realising there was more to him that I first thought
