GUEST SPOT - # 7 - Del Amitri - 'Just Before You Leave'

 

Del Amitri - 'Just Before You Leave' (2002)

This week's guest spot is by an extraordinary woman, named Michele:-

It was September 2002, my husband, daughter and then boyfriend were visiting the Costa Blanca in Spain (like you do) to see how our 'off plan' property was coming on. We made up a CD, with each of us choosing 5 tracks for touring in the car and when this one came on, it was one of those moments when the 'world stops'. What a track! It just burns and smokes its way through. I am mostly a dance, disco type of girl (mature lady) but every now and again, I hear a track like this and it reminds me how much I love music from all genres.

By the way they hadn't started to build but we still had a great time, plenty of 'chopitos (chipirones)' 'paella' 'Vino Blanco' and many Grande Cerveza and of course some good music. Ole !

Ahhh, breathe in that holiday heat. This song is thick with atmosphere. Fantastic choice, this song should be on every holiday compilation.

Not my favourite band in the world and it's nothing to do with them not sharing the same optimism I had of the Scotland football team, they were just a bit wet for me. But you can't deny the sultriness of this saucy number it's near impossible for it not to seduce you. Happy birthday too I believe!
