Run Rabbit Run by The Hoosiers I first heard The Hoosiers when I went to V-Fest with Liberty. I’d entirely missed their existence until that point and they were probably my favourite discovery from that trip. They were adorable, they had great stage presence and their music is great fun. This track oddly reminded me…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ R is for…

Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ Q is for…


The Mighty Quinn by Manfred Mann This song reminds me of my Dad. And also of singing along loudly as a family on car trips and whenever it came on the radio. I have no idea what the lyrics are going on about but the song makes me smile whenever I hear it.   If…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ Q is for…

Poison by Alice Cooper First up – apologies for the huge break. Now, this song. Where to start? It’s Alice Cooper, therefore it’s awesome. Then it got covered by Groove Coverage and was everywhere in the clubs when I first started going out on the town. So many memories involve this track pulsing in the…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ P is for…

Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ O is for…


Over You by Daughtry We’ve probably established by now that I like a song that tells a story – this one isn’t a step by step story so much as some others but it still tells a tale of a break-up. I love that it is a break-up track with honesty and hope in it…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ O is for…

Nothing Else Matters by Metallica I have my brother to thank for my love of Metallica – he copied me a few of his CDs and I listened to them repeatedly for years. For my 21st birthday a friend took me to see them on tour and they were incredible – sounded just like their…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ N is for…

My Happy Ending by Avril Lavigne Oh Avril. Avril, Avril, Avril. If I could only listen to one person’s music for the rest of my life, I would probably choose Avril Lavigne. Her albums provide a soundtrack to my life – from learning all the words to her first single (Complicated) in 2002 before I…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ M is for…

Lullaby by Nickleback My adoration of Nickleback doesn’t win me any street cred with anyone bar a few of my friends. But adore them I do – I probably listen to them and the artist coming up next week more than anything else. I love singing along to practically every track and no matter what…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ L is for…

Killer Queen by Queen I couldn’t do an alphabet of music and not have Queen in there somewhere. This track mostly makes me think of the time we went to see the musical – they really rocked out in this track and the staging was incredible. Queen are timeless and universal and we have yet…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ K is for…

Just The Way I’m Feeling by Feeder Here we return to my teen years – these guys were a massive part of my college soundtrack thanks to the obsession of several members of my main friendship group. I am still bitter that I didn’t get to go see them live with everyone – the gig…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ J is for…

I Owe You Nothing by Bros I have mentioned before that I am an 80s baby and this particular gem was number one on the day that I was born. I like to hold this fact purely responsible for my love of all things cheese in music ever since. Any excuse really 😉 Out of…… Continue reading Carole’s Music Alphabet ~ I is for…
