Glorious Saturday I wrote this song for a beautiful friend of mine, she was famous and lonesome, and I wondered how my perfect friend, with her big heart and Bridget Bardotish good looks could end up being treated so poorly by so many men, as is so often the case.
I haven’t listened to the song for such a long time and it’s made me grin from ear to ear. We worked so hard, every weekend, hours of practise…it reminds me of the Simon and Garfunkel song ‘Oh what a time it was, it was a time of innocence, a time of consequences…’ I’d forgotten about the harp strumming and the crazy Grange Hill theme tune ending. I love it and feel suddenly overcome by a deep sense of gratitude, who do I thank? Is it luck, who knows why we meet the people we meet… and I can say, with all my heart, that I’ve had the good fortune of knowing and working with the most amazing people. Man, I’ve gone all mushy!
