Well, its Monday again. I got back from France in the nick of time, didn’t I? Don’t worry, I’ll post pictures of my fantastic vacation sometime. But for now, there are more pressing matters at hand; its Monday, and I need to write up a song. I did a bit of sifting, sorting, emailing, and jostling, but I finally found one. And there are only 4 hours left of Monday. I have got to be more attentive. Anyways…
This week, with the help of a friend Kate, I picked the song “All of My Days,” by Alexi Murdoch. Alexi Murdoch, born in London, is an independent songwriter, whose music has been featured in movies like “Ladder 49” and “Away We Go.” Frankly, this is the first time I’ve heard his music, and I must say its made me wonder why I haven’t listened to more of him in the past.

A little about the song:
The song itself is very mellow and peaceful, with a wide variety of instruments. I hear some cellos (among other strings), which is a huge plus for me. The guy has a fantastic voice, with a slight British accent. Its a perfect song if you need a pick-me-up, or if you just need something to fall asleep to.
“All of My Days” comes from the film “Away We Go,” which opened the Edinburgh 2009 film festival and is expected to be out on BluRay and DVD on September 29th of this year. The film, in a nutshell, is about a husband and wife, expecting a baby, looking for the perfect place to live.
