I'm Not Too Keen on Mondays (Be Llŷrious edition)

I mentioned in the post I wrote shortly after his passing that, were it not for Llŷr and his outlook on life and music, I probably wouldn’t be writing this blog, for it was Llŷr who reminded me of the joy of loving pop records because they brought you pleasure, as opposed to whether they made you look cool.

And so, on the anniversary of him leaving us, it seems appropriate to post the song which sums up that philosophy, a song which he loved, and which I’d not given a second though to until he played it one night when we shared a flat together:

Huey Lewis & The News – Hip To Be Square

More soon.
