Mundane Monday Morning Music: Adele – “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)”

Hey Readers!

It’s finally Victoria Day here in the nation’s capital. The family and I have had an amazing long weekend so far. we spent a lot of time in our backyard, and my other half build a table in about 45 minutes for us to dine on Saturday night in our backyard oasis (there nothing this guy can do)!

As I was thinking about what I would share for today’s MMMM pick, this was the criteria I was looking for:

  • British (you know, since it’s the Queen’s b-day we’re suppose to be celebrating)
  • a little more mellow, but with a bit of a kick
  • is inspiring or fun.

I was totally (sorry, but this word needed to be used here :P) going to choose something different, but after waking up and checking out my Facebook feed, I knew I had to share this song instead: Adele’s “Send My Love.”

Oh, Readers! LOVE, love, love, love this song! It continues to let me know that some people may think that some of my decisions may have been unconventional, that it was the right one, and I am better for it, because I should have made is much sooner.

Here are Adele’s lyrics that resonate with me the most:

“I was too strong you were trembling
You couldn’t handle the hot heat rising
Baby I’m so rising
I was running, you were walking
You couldn’t keep up, you were falling down
Mmm there’s only one way down…”

I was just getting better and felt that I was being held back by someone that was too comfortable where they were. I wanted to soar, yet was being anchored. It was time to go, so I did.

This song is about realizing how to let go of the past and forgiving what has happened. This is something I still need some work on, but Adele is helping in this department (thanks, Adele!).

“Send My Love” also hits my criteria for today’s pick. British? Check! More mellow? Check. Inspiring or fun? Checkaroo!  Though I was looking for something more fun, the inspiring factor of this song won out, and it’s Adele for crying out loud! She gets my vote today!

I hope that “Send My Love” can help to inspire you to become better on this gorgeous and not so mundane Victoria Day Monday morning!

Until my next post, Readers!


Mundane Monday Morning Music: Adele – “Rolling In The Deep”

Mornin’ Readers!

March is almost over, and I am so looking forward to this upcoming 4-Day long weekend on the horizon! Baking, relaxing and the annual visit from the Easter Bunny are all big events my family has on tap to do!

Since my “bosses” decided to have their volume set to full blast, I figured I should pick a MMMM song that could be played and sung, if you wished, at full blast. I got a great suggestion from friend and fellow blogger Louise from Baby Gates Down (a favourite blog of mine to follow, especially her Musical A-Z feature), but I decided to leave this one for warmer weather this morning. I’ll let you know which song she put into my head when I use it later on this year (thanks, Louise!  :P)

My choice this morning is Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.” I love Adele! Her voice is amazing, and she is just so honest and real. I like when artists can just be themselves without any pretension; it’s just very refreshing to see! I know that this song is about heartbreak and pain, but, for me, this song helped me get over some of the tension that Monday mornings usually bring with everything I have to accomplish toady along with my “bosses” moving around at Mach 5 until they go on “break” (nap time). This song allows me to sing out loud (much to the chagrin of the “bosses”) and at ease, ready to take on what the rest of my day has to bring.

I hope that “Rolling In The Deep” gets you belting out the lyrics and get put into a good mood on this mundane Monday morning!

Until my next post, Readers!
