This project is literally all my life in the making, in the sense I have always felt compelled to safe-keep songs (even when I was a little tacker) that made an impact on me. The montage above captures those artists which have had the biggest bang for buck. I imagine given my music library is currently 750 songs this project of writing about one song per day may take in the vicinity of 2 years not including new songs which come to my attention.
Since I was very young, perhaps just after I heard Catch the Wind (Donovan) on the Wonder Years (see my post on that) I had this insatiable desire to replicate in real life what these songs meant. I failed more than I succeeded, but they remain ‘The Logos’ of sorts coalescing to form a divine-animated-universal principle pervading everything.
I would like to pay special mention to my grandmother Dorothy (photo insert) who was and always will be my immediate inspiration regarding music and I miss her more than ever although I still feel her soul ever-present.
I should mention here 3 bloggers who are my other inspirations towards undergoing this project given their deep adoration and education of music, namely Hanspostcard at Slice the Life, Badfinger at Powerpop and Bruce Goodman at Weave a Web.
From Monday 29/07/2019 I set forth on this adventure of rediscovering ‘the Logos’ and I hope the montage of artists featured above (amongst many others) maintains your interest in this exploration of music. I will delve into the catalogue in alphabetical order. To give you just the tiniest of glimpses in what will be explored here is a German song called – Wenn Du Liebst feat by Clueso
