Good morning, you gorgeous creature. I’m so happy to see you! Listen, you’ve been good all week, and it’s cold outside here anyway, so why don’t you blow off whatever you were planning to do today and spend time with me under the covers instead? You know we’ll have fun!
I promise you, what’s going on here today isn’t nearly as scandalous as it sounds. Just because I’m developing something of a reputation over at The Blog of Funny Names doesn’t mean I have a completely one track mind, you guys. Today’s post was partially inspired by the Canadian Broadcasting Company, for crying out loud.
One of the things I love about blogging – aside from the friends, and the fun, and the flirting – is that ideas for post topics are often no more than a click away. I am so lucky to be surrounded by such creative minds in this little corner of the internet; Truly, you all inspire me more than you know. Neil, John, and EJ are just a few of the writers I follow who are featuring music on their blogs, to great effect. (Today’s post is partially inspired by you boys, too).
Back in the early days of this blog, when I was new to the WordPress scene and hadn’t met many of you yet, Andrew used to stop by on Fridays with playlists to listen to. I’ve been thinking about reincorporating music into our regularly scheduled programming around here for a while, but wasn’t sure of the best way to do it. And then it hit me: when it doubt, shamelessly copy the CBC!
CBC Radio Two airs a feature on weekday mornings called, yes, “Under the Covers with CBC” which spotlights, yes, musicians covering the songs of other artists; and yes, we are totally taking this idea and running with it.
So. From now on, if it’s Thursday and we’re not talking about one of my Favourite Television Shows You’ve Never Heard Of, we’ll be talking tunes. I haven’t decided yet if we’ll cover strictly covers (sorry, couldn’t resist) or if we’ll branch out beyond that, and would love to hear your input in the Comments.
In the meantime, here’s our inaugural cover, perfect to bring the mood right back to where we started this morning, I think. Me-ow.
I hope your day is just delicious, and I hope to see you here tomorrow for WoW Friday!
