I have just cracked the 6,000 likes mark, and have 132 Followers (no accounting for taste, poor lost souls) and so, now, given that modesty is one of the most abundant of my many virtues, I feel it is time to share one of my favourite funny songs, with Mac Davis, in this one joined by Kenny Rogers.
Kate Bush's 1985 masterwork, Running Up That Hill , is charting again — because it featured in the first episode of the fourth series of Stranger Things — wonderfully heartening. No, not because of nostalgia: I don't need my TV to keep sifting through the cupboards of my youth to keep me happy. But because music-sharing platforms were delivering on their promise of creating a musical universe that is truly time-shifted.
By the weekend, Kate Bush was number one on iTunes and it clearly didn't matter at all that her music is approaching half a century old.
May whatever is hurting you and making you anxious get better. May the overthinking and the doubts leave your mind, may clarity replace confusion, and may God's strength replace your weakness! You're loved!
