"Ruin My Life" - Zara Larsson **
It's interesting what you hear when you first listen to a song, when you don't know what it's called, and you just find yourself singing along to the radio in the car...
That's what happened with this one, and it was one of those "accidental worship" moments, when all of a sudden I'm belting out:
"I want you to rule my life, you to rule my life, you to rule my life, yeah..."
And now that I know they're not the right words, I still can't help but here them...

"Next to Me" - Imagine Dragons
Having bought a phone without a headphone input, and not being good enough at charging bluetooth headphones, I've not listened to a hug amount of music of late.
This week I bought a new gadget, in order to try and remedy the situation, and I'm catching up with those random tracks I've "Shazamed" when they've made it on to Radio 2, or when I've been sat in a coffee shop and they've come on.
I've always appreciated the sounds that "Imagine Dragons" put together, but never remember that I like them for very long. I'm listening back over some of their newer and older stuff, and the lyrics are jumping out at me too...

An Act of Kindness - Bastille
This wasn't on my radar at all until last year when I was looking for a piece of music to go behind an Easter chalk drawing... A petition to the Hive-Mind of Facebook brought this song to my attention.
(It was the perfect piece, as long as I removed the bridge about feeling guilty...)
Here's the video I edited together:
Crazy Fool - Jack Savoretti
If youve read my post "Black Dog" this week, then you might have just smiled a little. That's ok. I forgive you.
This song was playing in Wilko (other shops are available) when I called in on my snowy walk and I Shazamed it so I would remember.
This is part of the "Rediscovering God" step.
Listen and read the lyrics below. Let yourself ask the questions Jack asks of God... Maybe, if you're brave enough, you could spend some time in silence listening for a reply...
