30 Day Song Challenge, Day 26 – A Song That You Can Play On An Instrument

One of the regrets of my life is that I’ve never learned how to play an instrument. I have toyed with it on many an occasion, but at the end of the day there always seems to have been something more important to do.

I’m not saying that I couldn’t necessarily learn something now. Dad learned the clarinet in his forties and Mum has just taken up the piano. On the other hand, they are already more talented than I am when it comes to any artistic endeavour and I’m probably better off trying to find out how the heck neither of them managed to pass that gene to me than I am trying to emulate their achievements.

In addition, this seems to be just about the only house in the country that doesn’t own a Wii, Xbox, Playstation or some other kind of games console. I could probably get good enough on at Guitar Hero or Rock Band or something like that to be able to claim that I could ‘play’ any number of songs. But that would take too long, and might lead to divorce.

This song, on the other hand, I really can play. Or, at least, I can play the piano part. That isn’t much of an achievement, because anyone with an ounce of co-ordination can play it. It also has one of the best intros I know and a fantastic lyric – which is good, given how long it is.

    Hmmm, am begining to think you could have just stated at the start of the month that “The Cure are the soundtrack to my every waking moment” and left it at that… ! Have you counted how many times you’ve mentioned them so far ?

    Well you can surely also play “Hot Cross Buns” on the recorder? That must be your second favourite, right?
