Day 5 – A song that reminds you of someone
Amazed – Lonestar
This song reminds me of my wife Sally-Jayne, because it’s one of “our” songs, from those heady early days of our relationship! It was released just after we first got together, she heard it on the radio one morning and, as she was on crutches after a knee operation and could not leave her office at lunchtime, e-mailed me and told me to go and buy it in my lunch hour and listen to it on my laptop at work, which I did. I know it’s a corny song, but I feel that is somewhat offset by the supremely “romantic” gesture of sending me out to buy the CD myself! And I do still like it as a song, not just for the associations. Sorry, but I have always been a sucker for a ballad. When I was in my teens, an album could have several hits on it, but I would always judge it mainly by the quality of the ballads.
