Music Monday: Fireflies in Heaven
I've been working hard this morning on a book review for The View From Here so I though I'd break off for a few moments for a cup of coffee and listen to a song that I've become addicted to lately. I guess you'd call it a little down time! I'm definitely in need of it as the article I'm writing is about two books which deal with child abduction and murder The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and The Shack by W.M Paul Young. Both books also present their own pictures of heaven so as you can imagine my brain is whirring around trying to place all my thoughts about such complex subjects. My article will be up on The View later this week so if you feel you can deal with such themes do pop over and have a read. Alternatively, if you just like my usual rubbish stay here!
Well the song I'm going to play is Fireflies by Owl City. It was number one in the charts in the UK a few weeks back and when you hear it I'm sure you'll see why its got underneath my skin. It has no connection to what I'm writing at all at the moment - I just like it!
Although, on consideration, I think it would be really nice if there were fireflies in heaven.

Hi Jane. I'll be interested to know what you make of The Shack.ReplyDelete
My kids like Owl City too!
There's a lot to think about with both The Shack and the Lovely Bones - I'm up to about my 20th cup of coffee! (I won't mention the number of biscuits.)
My daughter sings that song all the time. It is sure to be stuck in my head now. Thanks. :)ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed it One Woman; it's a chill out song:)ReplyDelete
Hi, what a co-incidence, I posted about the same song on my blog a few days ago. Isn't it lovely, its my latest favourite song!ReplyDelete
Yep, it's great Jana. Thanks for dropping by!ReplyDelete
