Joining in again wih the lovely Hugh from Hugh’s News and Views in his quest to post 51 songs from the past in 51 weeks, I simply have to include Scottish singer/ songwriter Gerry Rafferty’s ‘Baker Street’ from 1978 as a well-worn old favourite of mine – such a beautiful sax solo, a wonderful mood-enhancer… and suddenly I’m a love-struck teenager again, feeling every note with every fibre of my being.
But the lyrics particularly bring new meaning for me this year, as my husband and I are planning to move out of the madness that is London life and move back to the relative peace and quiet of Scotland, the country of my birth, and where we first met – we’re going home ❤
‘This city desert makes you feel so cold
It’s got so many people, but it’s got no soul
And it’s taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything’
