Song Of the Week.

Terriblemother

"Nothing New" by Danielle, otherwise known as The Terrible Mother.

One of the things I adore  about  the internet is that  it is a  level playing field. One week I can smile about Charlie Richards or rave about the number one hit by Mika and the next I can feature a truly amazing song by one of my very own Housekeepers.

At the height of my emotional turmoil during the whole Scott debacle  (Was there ever a woman more dramatic than me??), Danielle emailed  me and asked me to  listen to "Nothing New" because she thought it would resonate with me and my ongoing traumas. And resonate it did. In an earthquakey kind of "I don't wanna listen to this" kind of way. I plead insanity, I lost reality, I lost it on the day I met you. I can't be held responsible for all the things that I ever do.  I wanna feel but it's not real. I want you still, you make me heal...

But now I'm nearly human again I can hear it. And hear it, and hear it. In fact I've kind of got it on repeat on my laptop music player thing.

And so this is a thank you Danielle, for being gorgeous, for having an amazing voice, for being as terrible Mother as I am  and for feeling what I feel. (And knowing it). I love it that names in our comment boxes can become friends and that more than that, that the internet allows all of us the opportunity to showcase talent like yours. Good luck Sweetheart...
