Pearl Jam – Black
From Pearl Jam’s debut album “Ten” (1991, Epic Records).
In my opinion, this is the best, most wholesome Pearl Jam record. They have an extensive back catalog of songs though. Lots of gems. Their lyrics are poetic and intense. Real and raw. Just the way I like it.

Nothing as it seems (my favourite of this band)
I am mine
Any thoughts about my picks? Any song I should hear or consider?
Time for me to catch some sleep. It was a long day and work was exhausting, but awesome. I missed the kids at the nursery a lot more than I thought. xx
The Howl & the Hum – human contact
From the album “Human Contact”. It is the Howl & the Hum’s debut album and it will be releaded on March 29th.
It was produced by Jolyon Thomas who also worked with Royal Blood, U2 and recorded at Big Jelly Studios in Kent.

Good night. xx

Enjoy some punk on this Friday night.
Bruce Springsteen – if I should fall behind
From the album “Lucky Town” (1992, Columbia Records). Curiously, Bruce Springsteen released two albums “Human Touch” and “Lucky Town” on the same day. (March 31st, 1992). Apparently, work on “Human Touch” was delayed and shelved. In late 1991, Bruce returned to the studio to write one more song for that record, but he came up with ten new songs and “Lucky Town” was made. It is considered the tenth studio album of Bruce Springsteen and his band – the E Street Band.
The music of New Jersey born musician grew on me lately, until I noticed that he is one of the artists with the most songs in my Spotify Daily Mix playlist. I was quite surprised, but it is a fact. I guess, I was unaware of it because my favourite songs from the Boss are from different albums.
I like that Bruce is telling stories with his songs and some are just so very heartbreaking. Every song is like a short story.
I am still here… Just tired and getting back in the mindset of returning to work. New rules and regulations are issued daily, and we as de educators need to adjust the material at the nursery but also organise the rooms and spaces. So, I worked yesterday at that, and today new information came forward from the government, and everything had to be changed again. I am passionate about my job, and I am looking forward to working again… But this is draining. I wake up at night, remembering things I forgot and make notes… That’s not healthy. I am working overtime – of course, until at least mid-July, and then we will see how everything will change then again. But it is okay; my presence is needed. I am tired. It is early, but I am off to sleep. Good night dear people. And thank you for checking in ever so often. xx
