I know we are still facing a serious situation but a new year gives us hope for the new days, seasons, opportunities & moments ahead. Still, music is something that will never change for me. It is my refuge, the most comforting part of my life & the one thing I consistently count on. So until a more normal semblance of life returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
Today’s song hit the #1 position for one week on July 27, 1985. It was written by Daryl Hall who recorded it with John Oates for their 1980 album, Voices. But it was singer Paul Young who took it to the top of the charts five years later, showing us all that another blue eyed soul singer could interpret one of Hall’s songs nearly as well as he did.
“If we can solve any problem
Why do we lose so many tears
So you go again
When the leading man appears“.
