My history

Into the Woods arrived today. It sounds as wonderful as ever, the slow build of the opening track and the way that first side of the album is almost flawless. Memories...

Another memory which came in the same parcel is the first album from Shakespear's Sister. This is my history, late 80s rock and late 80s pop.

There's something terribly identifiable about 80s pop, but if you find the right track you can forgive the overbearing synths and drum tracks. You're History may be that track.

It's great to re-listen to these moments in my past, to understand lyrics that washed over me then, to wonder what difference it all made to who I am. Ultimately it made this: someone who now can't get Marcella Detroit's high vocals out of his head.
