Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Without music life would be a mistake.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Just two songs for today. The first is Baker Street which is a tribute to Gerry Rafferty who sadly died today aged 63.
The song Baker Street always reminds me of January 1978, the time my first baby, my daughter was born, I remember it was playing when I began having labour pains at home. It is funny how music can 'take you back'.
God rest your soul Gerry, you are going home now
Don't you just love that saxophone?
The second song is one I heard on the radio this morning. Another old song that I love by Billy Joel. I love the music and the lyrics so wanted to include both here.
