Music linkup week 28:Panic

This week I took on a big project: redecorating the master bedroom/bathroom!  It was a surprise for hubby, who left Monday morning for 6 days....or so I thought. Monday afternoon he called to tell me he would be home Wednesday afternoon. If I had not already started the project, I would have postponed it for a few weeks.  Since I HAD already started, I decided to scramble and make the 6 day project a 3 day project. 

After the waves of panic settled, I mentally adjusted my schedule, and amazingly I got it DONE!  Hubby called me at 4:00 PM to tell me he was half an hour away.  I had just finished making the bed, so I hurried and vacuumed, put away some stray painting supplies, and jumped in the shower.  (I was SOOOOO sweaty and gross after running around like crazy).  Hubby walked in the door just minutes after I got out of the shower, and he LOVED his surprise!  Pictures to come soon, I promise.

In the meantime, please enjoy this classic Smiths song, "Panic"

If you've never heard of The Smiths, I think maybe you're an alien from Mars.  I absolutely LOVE this band!  A girl I went to school with, Janice Whaley, had a really cool goal in 2010: to record her version of EVERY Smiths song, by the end of the year.  Her arrangements are pretty phenomenal, especially considering that her only instrument is HER VOICE. Check out her version of Panic:

Pretty cool, huh?  She's actually become famous(ish) for this project, and sells the recorded project as a box set - to people ALL OVER THE WORLD.  I'm so excited for her to have found a way to make money doing what she loves.  And hey, now I know somebody who is FAMOUS! :) You can 'know' her too, if you follow her on twitter @JaniceWhaley. Hey, follow ME too, while you're at it @DeploymentAgain

Have you linked up with the lovely Amber at Goodnight Moon yet?  Go see her, say hi, rock out to some of the other songs linked up on there, and then ADD YOURS!  You know you wanna!
