What I'm Listening To - January '19

What I'm Listening To

My Top Ten tracks of the month! I've been mostly listening to dance and synth this month. I blame the few moments of sun we had...

Hey Hey Hey - Katy Perry (2017)

Marianna's obsession with Katy Perry continues unabated. Worse luck. Still, at least this one - the fifth single from her fifth studio album - has a pretty cool video. I think the concept would make for a really fun movie or TV show!

Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin (2006)

I found my old iPod while decluttering and loved it so much I went on eBay to get some speakers that would work with what is now a positively ancient piece of tech! It's like a time capsule of musical greatness, and not so greatness... Breaking Benjamin are part of the former though, for sure.

2002 - Anne-Marie (2018)

Continuing with the nostalgia vibe, can you believe that 2002 is now long enough ago to be wistfully remembered in song?? Anne-Marie's only 27 too, so she really has no excuse! Still, omg, that inflatable backpack. The butterfly grips. The massive baggy jeans. Good times.

Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne (2013)

In an attempt to reduce the amount of Katy Perry I have to listen to, I tried introducing her to Avril Lavigne. That backfired spectacularly as she now requests frequent repeats of this, er, musical masterpiece. It even made #82 in the Japan Hot Top Airplay chart!

Fancy - Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX (2014)

Clueless was pretty much my favourite film as a pre-teen, and I still want to wear most of the outfits now. I'm basically blaming Fancy's take on it for the current 90s revival.

Honey, I'm Good - Andy Grammer (2014)

A top ten hit in the US, Canada, and South Africa. The UK has yet to fall for the country charm...

1999 - Charlie XCX & Troye Sivan (2018)

I know, I know. This list is just nostalgia overload! I think I'm liking it because I'm in such a better headspace; I'm at the stage where I'm looking back on it fondly but not actually wishing I could go back anywhere. Plus the vid for 1999 is a reminder of just how awful late 90s fashion really was.

Of The Night - Bastille (2013)

Of The Night was one of the last songs I had put on my iPod before I stopped using it. I still love it!

Hangover - Taio Cruz ft. Flo Rida (2011)

Definitely one thing I don't miss about post-baby life! :)

The Typewriter

This month's spoof song is The Typewriter, composed by Leroy Anderson in 1950. We played it for Marianna the other day after all attempts to explain what a typewriter is met with disbelief.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
