Music I want my children to listen to

They have been a little lost at sea of late, my two little ones. They didn't see much of Mummy and then they lost Gran which left them unanchored and then shipwrecked . There have been lots of storms, generally followed by us peeling them off the decks or pulling them down from the rigging.

Music can be so therapeutic. Last time I did this linky I chose Jamiroquai which gave us the 'stillness in time' we needed and helped me to feel 'everything is good' even when it wasn't.

My prescription this week is Morcheeba, from the album Big Calm, especially the track The Sea, hence all the sea imagery earlier. Lots and lots and oceans of calm.

It worked, sort of, moments of calm and lots of smiles. (Ignore the rug, I hate it, its just there to soften any dancefloor injuries. If I keep doing this linky I will have reason to buy a new one hurrah.)

To link up your tunes for your children, (video footage optional) visit Music I Want My Children to Listen To at the fab Ghostwritermummy.

They are having fun! My DS loves to run around with no trousers on too. Trying to keep his bottom half covered is a never ending challenge!

Fantastic choice. I think The Sea is one ofthese songs that will be remembered for a very long time.

This was the soundtrack to my Byron Bay 'finding myself' stage of life (I also found my husband there so double brownie points to Byron, and Morcheeba.) Will be digging it out tomorrow. Hugs. x

Fab track *goes to dust of the CD* (and I don't mind the rug)

OOOOOH I love Morcheeba and Big Calm was an endless play of mine. It reminds me of spending lazy days and nights in bed with an ex boyfriend of mine just lounging around and chilling.

I so need to get this down from my old CD collection and have a listen for old times sake (but forget the ex lover obviously!). Brilliant music.

I love Morcheeba and this album was the only one that would calm Luka down in the early days. Lovely post, big hugs to you and yours
