The Sunday Sessions: For the first time

I have been following Thea on her blogging journey for a while now. We have chatted online through our blogs and on Twitter and Facebook and I would consider her to be a good friend of mine. Thea also hosted a great weekend blog linkup known as The Sunday Sessions. I never participated but I loved to see all of the great music that she and her other friends posted on a weekly basis. A few days ago, Thea mentioned that she felt her time with the Sunday Sessions had come to an end. I was so upset and I asked her if I could take it on over here at Oh Antipodes. She said yes and now it's here!

The premise of The Sunday Sessions is simple:
  • There are no rules. 
  • On Sundays I play music on my blog. 
  • Old or new or in between. 
  • Related or not. 
  • But always songs I love!
Here are my picks for this week. You can play along by linking up below. Can't wait to hear your picks.

Glee Cast - Stereo Hearts
I'm a huge fan of Glee and even though it's in it's mid-season break and I still have another week to wait to find out what happened to certain characters from the heart-wrenching cliffhanger of the last episode, I still find myself listening to Glee songs over and over and over! Stereo Hearts is my most played song of the week according to iTunes and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

Adele - Set Fire To The Rain
I never "got" Adele. I found her first album was overplayed in London and I wasn't at all interested in hearing her new stuff from 21 - The Antipodean Man and I called it "music to slit your wrists by". When I went out to Australia for the summer, Adele was all the rage and I got hooked on this very song. There's just something special about this girl and I'm glad I finally opened my ears to listen to her.


  1. Thanks for volunteering to continue this fun Sunday linkup, Jade. We've got company this weekend, so I haven't had time to ponder my picks for this week. Will link up next week for sure!

    Adele's music has been played to death by the music store in our local shopping centre so I find myself avoiding her music, but I like the song My Hometown, and this is lovely too.

    1. I'll be looking forward to seeing your contribution next week!

      Adele is really overplayed here too, but for some reason, not this particular song :D

  2. Thanks so much for taking this over! I had just been saying, hours before Thea decided to give it up - that I was so excited to be getting back into SS.

    I LOVE that Adele song.

    I confess, I'm not listening to the first. I haven't watched a single episode of glee, or film clip. I can't bear the thought. :D

    1. Hi Melissa! So glad to hear you're excited about SS - I must admit, I was a bit worried that no-one would participate but some people have!

      I find Glee a bit like Vegemite, you either love it or hate it!
