Memories – Leytonstone to Basildon swathed in Musical Bliss

Status

About 20 years ago, my brother had just passed his driving test and he purchased an ultra stylish Volvo estate 🙂 complete with beige plastic interior…

Nice Motor!

Note – It was the era where girls and boys spent hours making ‘smooch mixes’ on cassette…The slow dance at the end of a party was a cultural benchmark of the 80’s ‘new romantics’

We decided to go for a drive down to Basildon to see my Nan, and Leigh was obsessed with this particular song at the time. So; I had to wait for about an hour and a half before we could leave; whilst he recorded it (real-time)

Finally, he filled the entire A and B side of the tape and off we went

In spite of the fact that he was driving the most uncool car known to man (at age 18)…we were feeling pretty special 😉 Read the rest of this entry

Utterly Undeniably Enchanting Little Number

I don’t know what this song does to me, or why, or how it does it…But I am truly madly deeply in love with it

Yep…5 minutes later and I still have no words that will do, to describe its wonder, except to say it is like magic medicine for my soul

I hope you enjoy…Happy Thursday
