U is in yoU, which makes you, U #music #AprilA2Z

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! I’m Under a dark Cloud (The Bangles) and I feel like climbing Under the Sheets (Ellie Goulding) till the crisis is over, but there’s no place to hide. Not Under the Boardwalk (The Drifters) or Under the Sea (Disney) or Under the Moonlight (Grayson Kessenich) or Under the Stars (Morning Parade). I just gotta get out there Under the Sun (Michael Weatherly) to get from out of the sense I’m Under Attack (Abba).

Why the urgency? Up until now, I kept ahead of the daily #AprilA2Z prompt, but it finally caught up with me and now I’m feeling Under Pressure (Queen) to get my mojo juices working. U inspired me!


Now, forget understanding this little ditty because it’s simply a fun, catchy number and in my book that makes it a winner! U inspire me (like yoU always do) and this morning, I want to say…U is in yoU, which makes yoU, YOU.

What makes yoU, YOU? For me, it’s mUsic! Throughout this challenge, I shared with yoU my daily mUsic choice. This is my utopia!

The first group I thought of was U2. I was pleasantly surprised when in October 2014 Apple launched the global rock band’s Songs of Innocence (click the link to listen) newest album to 500 million iTunes users for free. How utterly insane is that? I loved it! There are a couple of good tracks (The Miracle is my fave) on this cut and I hope yoU listen to decide for yoUrself.

Now, let’s flashback (coz I can’t forget my Flashback Friday edition) wayback!

DH and I were dating. He was a senior and I was a freshman in high school. I vividly remember this song coming out and no doubt played at DH’s senior prom. Do yoU remember it?

O’Day described this tune as a Nocturnal Novelette. It was put out without fanfare in February 1977. Four months later, it was the #1 song in the country, and certified gold.

As A2Z unwinds, just know I’ll be keeping the mUsic alive on my blog three days a week and I hope yoU will continue to join me. Before you go, tell us, what song describes yoU (or your life) in a nutshell?

1. How do handle being under pressure? I do a lot of head banging. Well, not really. That would only add more hurt to injury. I do a lot of deep breathing and try to let go of the things that don’t have to be done with few regrets. If the pressure relates to a happy event like I’m facing, then I know everything I am doing will come together in the end and the rewards for my efforts make it worth it all.

2. Once the pressure lifts, what do you want to do most? The first thing I want to do is have a long unwinding period, usually an entire weekend to do nothing, but relax. That’s what I’m going to do come Saturday night May 26th. You can bet  your last dollar the odds are in favor of a no-show in Blogosphere come Monday morning, too. lol
