What I'm Listening To - February '19

What I'm Listening To

My Top Ten tracks of the month!

SOS - ABBA (1975)

Marianna has discovered the wonder of ABBA. Or, as she calls them, 'Dancing Queen Songs'. SOS reached #6 in the UK in 1975, and is my personal ABBA fave.

Skeleton - Bim Skala Bim (1995)

Third wave ska band Bim Skala Bim released this as a single back in 1995.

Shoes - Jesse James (2000)

More ska with Jesse James. They were an awesome band but, guttingly, the only time I saw them live at Cardiff SU the sound system went screwy on them as soon as they started this one.

Ska Show - Reel Big Fish (2018)

They've still got it! I've seen RBF a few times and they're always great.

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.

You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties - Jona Lewie (1980)

This Jona Lewie hit has been stuck in my head all week!

Foundations - Kate Nash (2007)

I love the video for Foundations. I even went and got my hair cut just like this on the back of it in 2007!

Head Over Heels - ABBA (1981)

ABBA's star was waning by the time Head Over Heels peaked at #25 in the UK charts - the first single not to break the Top 20 since I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do in 1975.

Where Have You Been? - Reel Big Fish (2002)


Sister Suffragette - Mary Poppins OST (2013)

Mary Poppins has been Marianna's film of choice for the last few weeks. Apparently Glynis Johns thought she had been signed to play Mary Poppins, so Disney had to hurriedly come up with a solo song for her to soften the blow!

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
