Line(s) of the Day #Graceland

Graceland album paul simon

She comes back to tell me she’s gone
As if I didn’t know that
As if I didn’t know my own bed
As if I’d never noticed
The way she brushed her hair from her forehead

And she said, “losing love
Is like a window in your heart
Everybody sees you’re blown apart
Everybody sees the wind blow”

Taken from the song Graceland from the album of the same name (1986). Though the song charted badly, it’s gorgeous sound and heartfelt lyrics have always been popular and the album is still considered to be one of the greatest ever.

Line(s) of the Day #ADifferentCorner

I’d say love was a magical thing
I’d say love would keep us from pain
Had I been there, had I been there.

A Different Corner¬†from the Music from the Edge of Heaven¬†album (1986) has long been one of my favourite George Michael songs. With its heartfelt lyrics and gorgeous vocals, it really does highlight how special he was. A UK number one, it was written, sung, played produced and arranged by George himself, the first British person to do so. I never thought I would be writing a George Michael dedication for quite some time, 53 is no age at all. George had a ridiculous amount of talent and as long as I can remember listening to music he was always around. I even quoted one of his lyrics for Last Christmas only a few weeks ago. It’s also clear from the many tributes just how kind, caring and generous he was.

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) in the much-loved 80s classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986). Twenty years after it’s initial release, the story of a teenager’s perfect day off continues to entertain and inspire us all.
