WEDNESDAY CLUB - Tom Rush - 'No Regrets'

MIDWEEK CRISIS you have some regrets come to WEDNESDAY CLUB we've got Tom Rush and you think you've got problems?


TOM RUSH - No Regrets(1968)

Enough of all this Valentines schmuck! how do you follow a Valentines extravaganza?, well with the best BREAK UP song ever composed in my opinion. 'No regrets' by Tom Rush. It is very simply written but hits you like a hammer, You can feel the despair, the grief, the isolation, every single word is exactly how it is. This is what break up is all about, It is going to be a long road to recovery for poor old Tom. Some of the lines are so painful it hurts no matter how many times you hear them,  'I've got nothing new to show to you'  total resignation to the realisation that it is finally over. I have often brought this one out in times of need.

Oh I do love these break up songs.
Regrets I have a few
But why has she left you in the first place, before you wallow further in your self pity? Were you too long on the PC?  Football, pub & mates came first? Did you take her too much for granted? You wouldn't fart in front of a new girlfriend would you? Think about it and learn from it.

I found this in a bargain bucket outside an Indian convenience store I always had a browse every time I passed. I remember it so well, I also got 'Still the Same' by Bob Segar on the same day, another great one. Twenty pence each and no scratches. What a bargain!. 

I was desperate to find it on CD and found a Tom Rush 'Best of' but it was a big band version and had not the same impact. (file job). I finally found it on the the Soundtrack to the 'The Wonder Boys' check that out, It is one of the best Soundtrack Albums I have heard.

Also check out the Walker Brothers version it is also pretty good.
