-it’s her bday now, so I’ll stop on this for the next year minus 2 weeks
Skylarking is a fantastic album by one of the influential bands of my youth. It has grown with me, as I’ve aged.
This included the first time I heard ‘Dying’ after my mammy had dropped dead. When it got to ‘sweet jar on the sideboard and the multi-colour tea cosy,’ I lay on the floor sobbing. It popped up today. I don’t cry when I hear it anymore but I’ll always ever think of her.
‘Dying’ starts at 3:34. Youtube says it’s set for starting there but it ain’t a-workin’. Song before is a good song, mind you, but I’m talking about the one starting at 3:34. Sorry for BS.
