K is for Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson
As I mentioned in my theme-reveal post, this month will be all about music and how it inspires my writing.
I first heard of Kelly Clarkson during a singing lesson (I took singing lessons as a teen at a studio – I think I was rather good). “Breakaway” was the song that made me take notice of Kelly. (It also featured in the second Princess Diaries movie.) “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” is on my “power” playlist – sometimes you just need a boost to get through a bad day.
Katy Perry came to my attention with “I Kissed a Girl”, of course. Her songs always tell a story – especially if you listen to the songs on an album in succession. “Roar” is on my “power” playlist. A lot of her songs were featured in “Glee”.
Favourite album: “Teenage Dream” Favourite song: “Firework” (It was in the third Madagascar film – the penguins are excellent, as always.)
Both K’s songs appear on my character playlists, DPOV (deep point of view) playlists and drafting playlists.
Word of the day: key
According to Collins English dictionary: key n 5 any of the visible parts of the lever mechanism of a musical keyboard instrument that when depressed set in motion the action that causes the instrument to sound 6 a also called: tonality any of the 24 major and minor diatonic scales considered as a corpus of notes upon which a piece of music draws for its tonal framework b the main tonal centre in an extended composition: a symphony in the key of F major c the tonic of a major or minor scale
I just love this music video!
