#MusicMonday – Sing your own special song…

Whoop whoop! Welcome to this week’s #MusicMonday! This is my opportunity to share a track of my liking with you lovely people, all in the name of #MusicMonday, the brainchild of the Tattooed Book Geek, Drew! Before we get to today’s choice, can I let you know that I’ve created a #MusicMonday playlist on Spotify, so you can now listen to all my choices from the past couple of years and future weeks will be added!

Today’s choice is chosen with International Women’s Day in mind. It’s a track that promotes individuality, being you which, yes, isn’t just limited to the female of the species in the least.

I’ll admit, I didn’t really know this track until me and the fam watched Free Guy last year and then it got stuck in my head when the monkeys, I mean my sons, watched it on repeat for the next few weeks! And in prepping this post, I found it has been covered by possibly one of the most recognisable British female voice of the past 10 years… So go on, be yourself, no one else can do that for you… enjoy…

Make Your Own Kind Of Music by Cass Elliot

Nobody can tell ya
There’s only one song worth singing
They may try and sell ya
‘Cause it hangs them up
To see someone like you

But you gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

You’re gonna be nowhere
The loneliest kind of lonely
It may be rough going
Just to do your thing’s the hardest thing to do

But you gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

So if you cannot take my hand
And if you must be going, I will understand

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own kind of song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

Songwriters: Barry Mann / Cynthia Weil
