a music project-I need your input!!

Hello there!!

You may know that before I was ever a crafter, blogger and zine maker I was (and still am!) a singer! It's been fun bringing a bit of my love for music to the world of handmade, and also bringing the world of handmade back in to my music. What I love about the crafty and handmade community I discovered online is there is a real "can do" attitude. We are a creative bunch, and we just do things because we can! What's amazing though, is because we share with each other what we are doing we all become quite involved in each other's work and creativity, and our projects become big, lovely, collaborative, community things! I never really experienced that in the music scene (it's a bit more fickle and competitive) and I've become determined to have that same experience with my music!!

So this year, in an attempt to share my music experience a bit more openly and transparently, I have started taking requests and recording songs nominated by my fans/friends/online community. It's been fun. There is a sense that we are all contributing ideas, and that excites me! Head to www.mezzcoleman.com to hear the songs I have already recorded.

Now I am after more requests, so leave a comment below and let me know your favourite song that appears in a film. In a week or two I will pick one of the requests and record and share with you all!!

Looking forward to seeing what songs and films you like!



  1. Oh fun! I would say most of the songs from Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music or Grease. I know, I'm a real fuddy duddy! If I had to choose one, I'd go for "There are worse things I could do" from Grease. xx

  2. Where do I start? There are so many! But one of my favourite old 40s movies is "Casablanca" with Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart. The song "As time goes by" features in it and I reckon you'd do a great version that would be great to hear. So, for what it's worth, that's my pick! xo

  3. I agree with the Nosey Cook. Too many to pick out a favourite but I'll try. How about the following short list. Secret Love (Calamity Jane), Good Morning Good Morning (from Singing in the Rain) or You'll Never Walk Alone (Carousel) or even Far From The Home I Love (Fiddler On The Roof)

  4. I started carrying a copy of my prescription in my wallet as a hedge against ray ban sunglasses australia times when I’d meet people who thought they had bad vision. I’d ask about their refraction, and they’d proudly offer some pathetic number: -5.25, -7.75, -4. I’d scoff and brandish my documentation:ray ban australia outlet I’m -15 in the right, -15.25 in the left. Unlike Roy Orbison, I was never bullied for my glasses—I just felt ignored. During my brief, disappointing experiment with contact lenses, no one recognized me; having to look me directly in the eyes seemed to confuse them. ray bans australia online They were used to seeing my glasses instead of my face, I suppose.
