My, My, My, It's A Beautiful Day
Christopher and I were really, really lucky and were called for wait listed tickets to Colin Hay last night. He played this amazing club called The Carelton, and I wish I could airlift this club into Boston, as I have a long list of bands I'd love to see here. We got there about half an hour before he started, and we were seated with another couple, Nicolai and Jill, who were lovely and friendly, and the four of us really enjoyed our evening together.
Colin was, as always, amazing. Two notable moments: during "Down Under", which he has arranged to be a really sophisticated solo guitar number, Christopher turned to me and said, "I've been listening to this song half my life, and I had no idea it was such a magnificent, beautifully written song." Jill agreed. And, today's song, Beautiful World, made me cry. Because, mymymy, it IS a beautiful world.
Joy. Music. Fun people. Such a great time in Halifax; you've been wonderful. Off to the coast for some quieter times.
Beautiful World - Colin Hay
