Thanks to my ME flaring up I've been finding it even harder that usual to get going in the morning and get out of bed. To avoid falling back asleep altogether as I try and come to, I've been watching various YouTube videos. On Friday morning I found myself watching a series of Victoria Wood clips including the wonderful Ballad of Freda and Barry. From there I started looking up other comedy songs and basically laughed myself awake! (No, that doesn't mean ME can be cured by laughing...I wish! It's just a technique I use on days I'm well enough to get up but still struggle with getting going)
In writing this blog and looking up funny songs I enjoy I've rediscovered songs and comedians I'd forgotten and found new ones I hadn't heard about before.
I've posted a few of my favourites below. Some you might know, others you might not. Hopefully there will be some you enjoy (I hope!) but they are so varied there may also be some that aren't your cup of tea. That's okay too. One of the things I've learnt from writing this blog is that it's kinda fun to pick something you enjoy and, for lack of a phrase that's a little more fun, "research it". Look into whatever it is you enjoy and I promise you, you'll find old and new favourites.
Oh and don't forget to let me know what songs or performers you'd recommend I have a listen to.
