Declaration of an addiction

I am writing a slightly unusual post now.  However, as I have an addiction for almost a year now, I think I need to be brave, stand up and announce it.  Well here goes..... (Graham stands up, takes a deep breath, his bottom lip holding a slight quiver of apprehension).

I, Graham Ettridge, from the rural county of Wiltshire in England, have been addicted to.....



....the music from Schiller's album "Desire" for a year now.

 



Yes, I know, how could I abandon all the thousands of other tracks on my Ipod?????  How could I be so cold as to walk away from "Queen", "Moby", "Cat Power", "Sia", "Stereophonics", and all the other talented artists, imprisoned in the Ipod, frozen out of the play selection?  How could these dark winter evenings go past without at least a sprinkling of "Beethoven", "Mozart" or "Tchaikovsky"?   Not even the silky powerballad voice "Adelle" has managed to break through to my playlist, even though I did tie myself to the chair and switch on the radio to hear the full version of "Skyfall".

So I am now going to formally declare that I am going to stop listening to Schiller from now on.  No more, finished, nada, finito!!!! 


Well, maybe just one more track....



Thats it now!  No more, after this one last final one....



Well, it would be wrong to stop listening to Schiller without experiencing a concert just one more time, wouldn't it?????......



Well, maybe it is all too much for me to give up at the moment. Perhaps I should start this next week, or the week after, or the week after that..............................

Hahaha! I am so glad you liked it :) I thought it would be a bit boring just putting some youtube clips on here so decided I would spice it up a bit. The funny thing is, I really am quite addicted to his music, and the singers have the most mesmorising voices.

Hope you are having a great weekend :)
