Song of the day (23rd January) – Child Of Mind – “Take A Look At My Diary”.

I thought I’d like to share with you one of Declan Galbraith’s songs. Declan Galbraith has been one of my earlier crushes, and my crush on him started on 21 January some years ago, I don’t even remember exactly which year. Since Declan, I’ve already had two crushes, but I still like him a lot. So far I have showed you only 2 songs by himĀ  one

“Strange World”

comes from his demo, and the other –

“Walking In The Air”

comes from his debut album – “Declan” – released in 2002 when Declan was 10 years old. Now he’s 27, and since 2017 I believe, uses the name Child Of Mind. He’s also working on an artistic project of the same name. He has released one EP so far, and it’s really intriguing. From a child who was mainly covering popular songs, he has come a long way, and developed tremendously! I find his lyrics particularly interesting. And the song I’m going to show you here – “Take A Look At My Diary – is the one that speaks to me the most, and is the most relatable for me. I think though that many other people with mental illnesses, but also other similar issues I guess, can probably relate to it easily. I am curious what has inspired him to write this song, as it is very true.

Declan Galbraith – “Walking In The Air”.

Yesterday was quite an important day for me because it was my Dad’s 50th birthday, but also because it was one of my crushes’ – Declan Galbraith’s – 27th birthday. I actually can’t quite believe it, he’d been my second music crush and at the time my crush on him had started he was 20, time is just flying so fast! Anyway, I’d like to celebrate his birthday, even though it’s already belated now, especially that when I was preparing to write this post and thinking about a song of him I could share, I realised the hard and awful truth, that although I’ve shared quite a lot from my three other music crushes, in this almost year of my blog’s existence I shared with you only ONE song by Declan! And that’s so very, VERY unfair!

Although it’s Declan’s 27th birthday so he’s an adult obviously since quite a while, I decided to share a song from his debut album, which was released in 2002 so when he was just 10-11 years old. Since then, as I guess I’ve already mentioned somewhere earlier, his style has been evolving quite a lot with each album and getting higher and higher which is so interesting to observe! But for now, I think this lovely song is perfect, especially that it’s Christmas season, and I think there’s no better version of “Walking In The Air” than Declan’s.
