Rockhal Challenge – Day 8


A song that is your guilty pleasure

I don’t have any guilty pleasures in music. I stand behind my choices. That said, I also have those moments when I chose music that doesn’t reflect the image I want you to have of me. And I will share a song like that with you today.

John Barrowman – I made it through the rain


From his album “Music Music Music” (2008, Epic Records). This song is a cover of a Barry Manilow song. I am not sure how I discovered John Barrowman’s music, but it was in 2012 or 2013. I remember it so well, because my youngest daughter was not in school yet and I was still a stay-at-home mom. When we made lunch for her siblings, we turned the music up and sang into spoons or spatulas, we danced and used bottles as microphones when setting the table. Fun and bonding moments. Even today, she reacts to two songs we listened to constantly during that time (and she remembers parts of the choreography we had for this song.) One song was “I made it through the rain”, the other was “Rococo” by Arcade Fire.

I wonder if this has to do with her loving to play music, singing, and dancing. I think it does. 🙂

Apparently, John Barrowman is a talented actor too. I couldn’t tell, I only saw him in Desperate Housewives years ago. Anyway…

It’s not really a guilty pleasure, it was just a phase where I liked to listen to a different genre of music. Back then, I also listened to lots of Boyzone and Ronan Keating.

I was very different back then. We all were…
