Week 51

6th — 12th of March 2021

Day 357: Thank you, Dido

I think it is time for another Dido song. This one has Dido’s signature laid back percussion feel to it. The perfect song to unwind to after a hard day at work. The video to this song is also pretty clever.

Day 356: If you leave me now, Chicago

Time for a soppy love song. This song is pretty and dominated the airwaves when it was first released in 1976. It reminds me very much of the Max Merritt classic Slipping Away which I have already cited on Covid Island Discs.

Day 351: All those years ago, George Harrison

OK kicking off week 51 I think it is time for another George Harrison song. This song is quite touching as George looks back on the Beatle years and sings about his love for John Lennon who he “always looked up to.” Sadly, like John, he is no longer with us. >
