If things work out as I have been told to expect, you’ll be getting two Musical Memories for the price of one today.
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute to The Spectator’s Arts Blog. Last week, one of my favourite bands of all time split up and I was honoured to be asked to write this appreciation of them.
There are four great videos embedded in that piece. but the two which mean the most to me are below. The first has been, ever since I first heard it, one of the credos by which I have tried to live my life. The second is an older song and is mentioned in the article as having one of the great lyrics of all time, but is also simply one of my favourite songs of all time. I hope that you enjoy all of them and I’ll be back later with part two.
