Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Michael Bublé: "I only write drunk"
Crooner Michael Bublé has joked that he never writes songs
when he is sober, reports music-news.com. The Canadian music star is currently
promoting his new album To Be Loved and has discussed his song writing process.
Musicians often have a unique way of letting their creative juices flow and
Michael claims that alcohol helped him find inspiration for his new song It's a
Beautiful Day. "I have always written these songs about love, or loss or
longing. I just sat down at the piano and I started to work on this tune and
the lyrics just came right out. I was drunk, that's the truth. I have never
written anything sober in my life. I think if I tried to write sober," he
laughed to BBC News. "I thought this is a great concept, I am going to
write this song about a guy whose girlfriend thinks she's the greatest and
dumps him. And he realises that once she is gone, his life gets so much
better." The 37-year-old star insists the song isn't based on personal
experience. Michael is happily married to Luisana Lopilato and the Argentine
actress-and-model is currently expecting the couple's first baby, a boy. As
well as new tracks, Michael has also covered some of his favourite songs for
the new album. He teamed up with Reese Witherspoon for a rendition of the
classic Frank and Nancy Sinatra duet Something Stupid and was impressed by the
Oscar-winning actress' talent in the studio. "I had gone through the
singers I knew, like Adele and Katy Perry, and my manager said, 'What about
Reese Witherspoon?' because both of us were absolutely fascinated by Walk the
Line, he explained. "She walked into the studio and nailed it, there was
no messing around or having to piece things together. "To Be Loved is
Michael's sixth studio album and will be released worldwide next month.
