Thursday I'm in love.....a chance for me to grovel!!
Frank Sinatra - 'Come Rain or Come Shine' (1962)
This time last week saw me in my Speedos, roller blading down Muscle Beach to the sounds of Crockett's Theme on my Walkman. Ok not quite, I certainly wouldn't subject that kind of horror show on anybody but I did, along with SFW attend a close mutual friend's wedding near Palm Beach, Florida (I know!!). However, despite the sea, sun, friends and the most perfect and wonderful occasion, my wife wasn't by my side to share in the love fest, therefore part of me was missing.
Inevitably the wedding rekindled memories of mine and therefore why I have chosen this magnificent version of this song. It's probably my favourite ever love song and I'm covered in goose pimples each time I hear it. Not only is the sentiment just about right but the arrangement is immaculate (by producer Don Costa) from the strings to the moment the band all kick off about 02:30 in the song making you want to kick your leg out, wrapping things up with a big finish (not to mention the muted horns adding to the drama). It's just pure class, just like my wife Sophie who introduced me to this song.
