Do you know what the perfect music is to listen to while cleaning? Well, for me it's my Natalie Merchant CD - The House Carpenter's Daughter which is basically a collection of old folk music interpretated by Miss Merchant. I have it as an actual CD (I know - how old school of me!) and I put it in the stereo as I spent most of the day cleaning.

My favourite song has to be this one: Which Side Are You On? written by a woman named Florence Reese who was a labour union organiser for the National Miner's Union somewhere in the States. The song was written in '32 after her husband had been arrested by the police (since there was a big struggle between the workers and the mine owners) and I don't know... I guess it's one of those songs that grows on you, but I really love it. It's sort of powerful.


(this was the only decent copy of the song that I could find on YouTube, so feel free to ignore the pictures to it, if you want)

There are a lot of other really good songs as well on that album - for example Soldier, Soldier but I couldn't find that on YouTube. It's really good soothing music on that CD if you want a recommendation.

And my room is absolutely spotless now! I feel incredibly proud :D
