Music Monday: Paul McCartney

Hope you’ve had a great Monday. I’ve had a pretty busy one today but I saw this video the other week and thought that I should share it today. I’m a big fan of The Beatles so when James Corden invited along Paul McCartney to do Carpool Karaoke I knew I just had to have it as Music Monday.

Paul McCartney is on tour towards the end of the year so it comes at a great time. He includes some of his ( The Beatles, Wings etc) best hits along with Let It Be, my favourite Blackbird, When I’m 64, She Loves You, some of his newer songs and so much more. He’s also got some fabulous stories of when he was growing up , as well as visiting his old house in Liverpool and showing Corden around Liverpool. He shares some of the stories about how the band were first started out and he even went back to one of the pubs The Beatles played at many moons ago and plays a small gig.  It warms the heart and it’s a great watch.

They’re such a part of music history that there’s no way you can’t love Paul McCartney and The Beatles in some way so enjoy the video, and let me know your favourite song in the comments below.

Happy Music Monday!

It was a bit scary as the boat swayed from side to side but the gondoliers are very skilled. They talk you through getting on and off the gondola and set you at easy and they might even sing a little to you too. It’s very romantic and so beautiful to be in such an amazing place.

I don’t love plane rides but it’s definitely mind over matter. Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 21.20.06 This is just outside the Doge’s palace down by the water. It’s so pretty and the views are amazing. Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 21.20.16 There are so many art galleries around the island. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or maybe if you know me you’ll know that I love the arts, all arts especially dance, art, music and The Beatles. So when I saw this I was gawping like a fool. So many people were taking pictures and I had to wait a while to get this picture, I’m so glad I waited though.

It was so fun walking through the party. Everyone was dancing, singing and very happy. I saw this scene with the sun shining through the rainbow flags and umbrellas with the moody skies and it rained on and off and had to take a picture. Just beautiful!

The clothes are awesome and today it has a sale throughout. I was in heaven. This navy blue Phase Eight dress is so pretty. Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 21.22.52 Back to Venice, I’m reminiscing and this picture is of the Doge’s Palace. The bridge ahead is the Bridge of Sighs, it’s very famous as no one ever came out of this prison due to disease etc. Legend has it that as the prisoners went across the bridge, they would glimpse the Venetian sea,  the beautiful view and freedom and you’d be able to hear the sighs of the prisoners as they went to the prison. It’s very sad! Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 21.23.03 Back to art and in the same gallery as the Beatles, they had this amazing Love sculpture. It’s just so fun and vey fitting for this week. Let me know what you think off my pics, and what you’ve been up to this week in the comments below. I’d love to know you thoughts. Happy Shopping!
