A HUGE thank you to Daria who told me how to upload a video from YouTube, I have been trying to do it for a long time with no success and now, thanks to her instructions I have done it!!!
You are probably sick of hearing about Mike Peters and The Alarm but they are a band important to me for lots of reasons. I have followed them since my teens and the band are from North Wales so are local to us.
The important part of The Alarm is the music, Mike Peters is a poet and a musician. As I follow his albums from Declaration and Strength to the latest Guerilla Tactics his music has followed his life, his voice growing richer with each passing year.
As a punk goth in my earlier years I could identify with "Father to Son", as I married my husband my thoughts were with "Walk Forever By My Side" and "Breathe". As I battled depression in recent years my anthem became "Without a Fight" and now I share the battle with cancer I live with "Love, Hope and Strength" and "Fight Back".
If you ever get the time to listen to the lyrics of these songs, they tell a story in themselves and you will know exactly why I share this connection with Mike.
Music is an important part of my life. I thank God for my hearing that I can hear it, my feet so that I can dance to it and my heart for music being able to stir my emotions.
