30 day song challenge day 22: a song that you listen to when you’re sad

Fish—A Gentleman’s Excuse Me

I love this song by Fish. It is beautiful, romantic, nostalgic and regretful.

There’s one line from this song that comes back to me again and again, when things are too hard and I just want out: “Can you get it inside your head, I’m tired of dancing?”

I listen to this piece of music when I’m down, and at the end of it I can always sigh, know that I’m not on my own and just get on with things.

(My final catch-up post of the weekend, posted on 23 May, after a crazily-busy weekend… excuses, excuses! Consider this a gentleman’s excuse me!)
