Strange how potent cheap music is

As usual on a Saturday morning (when I’m not at the market) I’m listening to Sounds of the Sixties. Brian Matthew played The Everly Brothers singing Let It Be Me. I turned up the radio as loud as I could stand it. I literally felt goosebumps break out on my arms and when it finished found tears in my eyes. It’s absolutely perfect.



Incidentally, 'your old mate Brian Matthew' and his wife celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary last week.

I was just getting dressed and pottering around when I heard the intro and went ooooooh. They are so lovely!
I've been playing them on the iPod. They've become today's drug.
Aww, sweet.
It's the harmonies.

Everleys

That's one of my Desert Island Discs - brings back my youth at once. The other songs that make the tears well up for the same reason are: 24 Hours from Tulsa (because I adored Gene Pitney) and Galveston by Glen Campbell, just because.

Re: Everleys

Weird, isn't it, how it catches you unawares. That song was my Everly choice when we were all making our LJ Top 100s.
