Franklin my dear, I do give a damn!


If you were to ask my friends to sum up me in a nutshell, they would say anything to do with beauty, cars - specifically classics, and soul music. I know this because I asked them a couple of days ago.

I'm the kind of girl who's always been the the odd one, I've never really followed the rest of the crowd. I know what I like and I'm very passionate about it. Soul has always been a huge part of me, I was raised on it and I honestly do believe that for soul music especially, being part of it brings you into a community, it's a lifestyle almost. I'd rather sit and listen to Smooth FM on a friday night with a bottle of wine than be out on the lash somewhere - that in itself has led a lot of people to think that I'm really odd, let me tell you!

So my point to all of this I suppose, is that I've always written whatever I fancied on here. I don't have a regiment, I've done everything from OOTD's to The Gay Post. And I hope, from that, you've all got to know me, from what I write, to the way I write it. But one of the biggest parts of my life, and my personality isn't shown to you (don't worry, I'm not going to start shoving classic cars in your face). So from time to time I'm going to share with you some of the soul music I'm listening to, and some of the events I go to.

I know this won't be for everyone, so feel free to completely ignore them. But, I'm always on the look out for other soul people out there. So if you do happen to be part of the community, whether it's Motown, Northern Soul, Funk, Old Soul or anything else in this world, get in touch!

So this time I'm going to leave you with Aretha Franklin - What A Fool Believes.
It's a real feel good song, and listen for the change at 3.55, blows me away at every time.


Have a great night everyone,

Lea
