Fiesta Friday #17 – Do you listen to music whilst cooking?

Fiesta Friday #17

Listening to music

This week I have not put in a foodie recipe, why is that?

A couple of reasons, I really have not cooked anything interesting this week nor baked any treats.

I will confess also that I need to lose a stone in weight, hence not baking cakes or treats simply because my self will not to dip in the cake holder or fridge or tin containing something nice and calorie laden is beyond me.

So take away the temptation I say!

  • What better way to get fit and enjoy cooking though than to listen to music?
  • Who do you listen to music whilst you cook?
  • Why not share some links in my comments box as to what you like to listen to whist dancing?

It’s a party too, so I am bringing the singalongs to the venue.

Why not open up another tab so you can browse through all the wonderful FF entries whilst listening to this song? Β I am full of good ideas (grins).

 

 

Β Did you listen to it?

Lyrics to Human by the Killers

“Human”

I did my best to notice When the call came down the line Up to the platform of surrender I was brought but I was kindAnd sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart
Cut the cord

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Hear my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You’ve gotta let me go

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight
There is no message we’re receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer

You’ve gotta let me know

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Are we human or are we dancer?
Are we human or are we dancer?

I love….50000_music

As always, thank you for reading and listening this time, hehe…

        You can favourite songs and get playlists going on youtube – when playing a video, underneath there are tabs saying about/share/add to…..if you click “add to” you get an option to add to favourites or a custom playlist! It’s an awesome feature. Glad you liked the song! I think we have great taste, lol xx

    I’ve worked professionally in kitchens for many years and music is always playing. It helps the kitchen staff relax and the food tastes better.

        I was on my phone earlier so couldn’t post a link – I love this one – lots of memories… I grew up listening to Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald etc, then lots of American Rock and Motown, then the English Invasion… Used to go clubbing a lot and got into House music and funk …When my son was born, I suddenly ‘got’ classical music…oh, it’s been a journey!! Hope the link works…

    Thanks for bringing the music to the fiesta! While I cook, I definitely sing random songs from before my time from Fleetwood Mac in the late 70s to School Days from 1907. Now, since I’m a horrendous dancer, I love ceili dances. I can learn all the steps! So, we definitely need some Irish folk music to really get the party started. πŸ˜€

    Justine! Thank you for bringing music to the party! I love listening to music – while doing some errands, cooking/baking, blogging – name it! πŸ˜€ I use headphones most of the time and the volume is on its highest. Just imagine the ‘soft part’ (what do you call that, Justine? You know – the one that touches your ears) of the headphones keep massaging your ears. πŸ˜€

    Have a happy FF!
