That's right, it's Tuesday folks and for our merry little band of ladies and lads, that means sharing tunes, good vibes and engagement. As another week disappears in the rearview mirror, we have loads of engagement and tunes flying around on Three Tune Tuesday and sure isn't that bloody fantastic! I hope you're ready to share three tunes from wherever you find yourself on this magical spinning lump of rock that we all call home and sure you might even sing us a tune if we're lucky?
It's a time of the week when lovers of music, tunes and craic bring their blockchain community three of their finest and brightest tunes to share and celebrate, so let's roll on and let the tunes flow free.
This is my 95th week waxing lyrical for Three Tune Tuesday and we are still going strong.
It started off with me just sharing tunes into what seemed like a void, but little by little others joined and now I'm thrilled that we have a little corner of Hive where we come and share our tunes every Tuesday, and long may it continue. I almost stopped posting the songs and thoughts a few times, but I stuck with it and now interestingly it is my favorite thing about Hive. I love music and now I have a network of folks around the world who love music too and we share our tunes and catch up with each others tunes and discuss them each week. We get Pop, Metal, Rock, Gospel, Folk, Jazz, Rap, Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop, Reggae, Bippy bappidy Flange Hop. Ok I made that one up, but you get the idea, we are all learning about new artists, bands, back stories and sure isn't it just mighty!
Something that excites me the most is that we even get musicians sharing their covers of famous songs and even their own songs from time to time here on #ThreeTuneTuesday, which is a real favorite of mine, as that takes talent, time and dedication.
We are adding New posters and retaining our core of regulars here on #TTT which is fantastic. Let's keep it growing. Weekly, I try to find four to six hours to listen to all of the fantastic music shared from like-minded folk from around the globe and interact with their posts. This has led me to genres I don't know well and to some amazing new bands and artists and has even introduced me to some musical instruments I did not know existed. It also allows me to upvote smaller accounts and find some really interesting people from all over the world, which is heartening.
I hope you enjoy the tunes - be sure to tell me all about it in the comments below and above all else, please enjoy the rest of your Tuesday - smile at a stranger, rub a dog, be a nice human to someone who was not expecting it - peace out.

Every Tuesday I'm going to share 3 songs which I like to listen to and I invite your feedback in the comments below.

Here are my week ninety five recommendations for Three Tune Tuesday
** Drum roll please.....**
Tom Waits - Ol 55
Every so often, I go to my favourite playlist and simply hit shuffle. This playlist had a couple of thousand songs, so let's see where the wheel spins to.
Well would you look at that for good fortune, Tom Waits Ol 55. You could so far worse things than stop what you are doing right now and hit play on his album Closing Time. It's one heck of an album, go on give it an auld spin on your sound system. You won't regret it.
Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlanticism
Oh wow, the shuffle gods are smiling on you folks. Another quality tune if I may say so myself. I'm not sure what it is about Ben Gibbard's voice, but there is something very special about. Whether singing with Death Cab For Cutie or The Postal Service, the songs always resonate with me and this one in particular is very very meaningful to me. A beautiful song that reminds me of a beautiful soul taken from this world too young.
Declan O'Rourke - Whatever Else Happens
We will finish up our trio of tunes this week with an Irish singer songwriter who many of you may be unfamiliar with.
His name is Declan O'Rourke and he became a big favourite in our house over Covid-19 as we played his new album Arrivals regularly and now we play a song of his which I'll include as a bonus track for them at bed time most evenings.
This is another gorgeous song from Declan O'Rourke called The Stars over Kinvara. As I said we got in the habit of playing this at bedtime and it will forever remind me of my beloved sons.
ThreeTune Spotify Playlist
Our good friend and occasional Three Tune Tuesday poster @blackdaisyft added some tunes to a playlist in the early days and there are around 600 tunes there which is class. You can check those out here:
