Today kicks off Heart Week (3-9 May) here in Australia, which is used an opportunity to start a conversation about heart health and the steps to take to reduce the risk of developing heart disease, and additionally spread information on the effects of the underlying condition that affects about an estimated 1.2 million Australians – including myself – according to the latest ABS survey.
Although, the actual program by the National Heart Foundation of Australia is directed at practitioners to spread the word, I wanted to put an Eat This Music spin on it and feature a different Heart (in lyric, song title, etc) related song each day of the week, something feel-good to get the heart pumping!
Heart of Glass by Blondie
To kick off this feature series, it was a given Blonde‘s “Heart of Glass” was going to be the first song, this was the first song that came to my head when I thought of this series – how could it not be? “Heart of Glass” is an iconic song and covered many, many times before for a reason!
I am always happy to take recommendations while this series is running, so don’t be afraid to send me an email with Heart related song suggestions: steve[at]eatthismusic.com.
