30 Days, 30 Songs, an ending of sorts

The last day of my friend Sarah‘s 30 Days, 30 Songs project.

I had no idea it would be so difficult to choose just 30 songs to share. There are so many gaps, I’m seriously thinking of ways to incorporate more music into my blog — either as a regular “thing” I do, or as some sort of challenge/prompt. More to come on this …

But as Seneca (and Semisonic (1)) said “every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”, so first things first.

For the last post I guess I could have chosen The Last Post.  No, not really.

My list of potential finale numbers was almost as long as the month itself, but in the end, I’ve chosen Lie in the Land, written and performed by Eva Prowse as part of the band Fly My Pretties.

I began the month with a New Zealand artist, and an image taken on Greenhithe Wharf. I’m ending it the same way.

I can’t find the lyrics of this song online anywhere, but it does include the lines:

Rolling on, rolling on

How do you find where you belong

Rolling on, rolling home,

Lie in the land that you come from

Sarah at Art Expedition has hosted 30 Days 30 Songs during June. You can hear all of her musical choices by visiting her blog. Her final song is one of my favourites too.

 

 


  1. The Semisonic song Closing Time, written by Dan Wilson, includes Seneca’s line.

  1. I haven’t had time to listen to all your posts, but thank you for introducing me to new artists and reminding me of old favourites. It has been a blast. I like the lyrics here. I am a rolling stone and no longer know where I am from. I have moved so often my roots are shallow.

  2. Absolutely love this song! I could have it played all day long I think, her voice and the music is that good. 😄 But I did get a bit distracted by the lovely golden dresses. 😄
    Thanks so much again for joining the challenge and contributing to it in the most wonderful way, i.e. introducing me to new artists and music!
