Blatant Self Promotion 2015 (Or, An Owls Well Year in Music)

At Owls Well, we like to look back over the major events that have occurred in the Owls Well universe during the past year. Every year, WordPress gives us a report on the top posts on our blog. Their report is always rubbish. (If you want to see their report, go here)

Instead, A Becky Lee and I have put together our own guide to some of our favourite posts from 2015, and we are also adding in some recommended listening music to accompany each one! Bonus!

We have put theย the full music playlist that summarises the ups and downs and madnesses of an Owls Well year in the handy-dandy playlist below! ย So put your headphones on and enjoy the ride!

  1. You are so musical! We need to do a harmonised singalong one of these days. Do you still remember our self-made cassette tapes of our ‘performances’? Would be fun/embarassing/traumatic to hear them again.

    • I quite often have a song in my head when I’m writing my articles! It’s a habit.

      Oh my goodness those tapes! I remember we made one for our teacher and she nearly crashed her car listen to our tuneless warbling and cackling.

  2. Such a cute idea to pair each article with a special music piece.. Much like wine pairing! The year has indeed past by in a flash… Have a wonderful 2016 with plenty of beautiful memories and more music! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. What an interesting way to sum up the year!! Maybe you should add the link to the song you have in mind at the start of every post and we can listen as we read ๐Ÿ˜€
