You saw me standing by the wall corner of a main street And the lights are flashing on your window sill All alone ain’t much fun so you’re looking for the thrill And you know just what it takes and where to go.
The opening lines of Save a Prayer by English band Duran Duran, from their third studio album Rio (1982). I’ve spoken of how much I love the band numerous times on the blog, and even mentioned this same song a few posts ago in Best Songs to Fall One Place Short of UK Number One.
This post was partly inspired by the release of romcom Last Christmas (which features the many musical talents of George Michael), and the fact that I’ve been listening to a lot of music recently. Enjoy!
