So… As you’ve probably already noticed, I Won’t Let You Go doesn’t begin with a ‘V’. I have zero ‘V’ songs on my iPod. Of all the letters I thought I’d struggle with, ‘V’ wasn’t one of them. Instead, I’ve decided to talk about a song that I absolutely love, and I’m sure a few of you will be pleased to know – it’s not by The Wanted. James Morrison has always been one of my favourite artists, see yesterday’s post for more information about him! When I first heard I Won’t Let You Go I knew that it would be one of my all-time favourite songs ever. I stumbled upon it on YouTube I think. Although I still listened to James Morrison on my iPod, I hadn’t been following him closely enough to realise that he’d released his third album. As soon as I found out, I think it might be the quickest I’ve ever purchased anything in my life, except for the Harry Potter books of course!
It’s not just James Morrison’s voice that I love, it’s the whole song. The music, the lyrics, the meaning behind it. Everything. The song is from Morrison’s third album, The Awakening. It has some good songs on it, one of which I would use as the soundtrack to my first book if I had the rights to use it! The song that I’m talking about is actually called, The Awakening too. Listen to it here. You can also find out about my books here! You can watch the video for I Won’t Let You Go at the bottom of the post.
And if you feel the fading of the light
And you’re too weak to carry on the fight
And all your friends that you count on have disappeared
I’ll be here not gone, forever holding on
So these lyrics basically represent what I look for in a friend, and I also like to think it’s the sort of friend that I am. You only realise who your true friends are when you’re in a difficult situation. They are the ones that stand with you, no matter what. Happily, I’ve found the friends that I can count on when things get a little tough. It does make life easier knowing that you’ve got someone to go to if something is on your mind. I Won’t Let You Go really is a beautiful song that I could listen to all day and never get bored of it.
As there weren’t any songs beginning with ‘V’, talking about other songs on the list is pretty difficult. So, I’ll keep this short and sweet. If you’ve never heard of James Morrison before, I’d suggest you go and have a listen. You can find his website here. Let me know what you think. If you have heard his music before, do you have any favourites?

A few fun facts: Of the 1,199 songs on my iPod – I know, feeble compared to some – there have been a total of 16,039 plays. This equates to an average of 13.4 plays per song. If each song is an average of 3 minutes long, this means that I have spent approximately 801.95 hours listening to the music on my iPod or 33.4 days. This doesn’t include the many times that I have watched and re-watched music videos or the time before the iPod. I can guarantee things would look a little different if I could get the data from my MP3 Player or Windows Media Player days.
