Starry Eyed - #TuesdayTune

One of things I miss most since having kids is music.  I used to love listening to loads of different types of music - LOUDLY!  Mostly in the car, but we also have a seriously good (and now seriously underused) music system in our house which we'd put on a CD or two in the evening.

It goes without saying that conversations, age-appropriate lyrics and quiet for sleeping children take over... and now I grab a tune or two on my iPhone when I can.
And every now and again and song comes along that you just can't get enough of.

Ellie Goulding - Starry Eyed

"So we burst, into colours, colours, and carousels
Fall head first like paper planes and playground games"

A hauntingly beautiful mix of pop, dance and crystal clear vocals.  It captures care free summer days, those early heady days of love, and keeps you singing 'everybody's starry eyed' for days on end.  I love it.

I'd love to know what you're listening to this week.  Is there one that captures your mood in particular?


  1. I've not done a #tunefultuesday post this week (very busy with other ones tho). I cannot get "Let it go" (from frozen) out my head at the moment. It is my totally feel good shouty song. Except my boys keep telling me off for singing "Let it snow".

    1. I haven't seen Frozen but I hear it's great. Those Disney lyrics do get stuck in your head ;-)

  2. Christina Aguilera - We Remain. A proper better!
