It’s Valentine’s Day, apparently.
Not a day which has burdened me with the problems of flowers, presents, restaurants, the purchasing of an M&S Meal for Two, or perfunctory love-making for many a year.
In fact, I’m a bit annoyed that a) it’s on a Sunday, and b) we’re in lockdown so I’m working from home, so I can’t do my usual hilarious joke where I apologise for turning up to work a bit late with the excuse that I couldn’t open my front door for all the Valentine cards piled up behind it.
Anyway, what I am left with is the unenvious duty of choosing a suitably romantic Country record to fill this morning’s slot (and no, I’m not still talking about perfunctory love-making).
I did, briefly, toy with the idea of posting one of those “titles you only find in Country music” tunes, but then I thought of poor old Steve Wright on Radio 2, snowed under on his vomit-inducing Sunday Love Songs show, and thought I’d cut him a break and post an actual love song, even if it is one about lost love, which is probably a subject many more can associate with than the everlasting sort. I mean, we all remember the lost loves, right?:
Enjoy your day.
