Now you ain’t gonna believe this but we’ve had a long, rainy winter here in Madrid and we were just desperate for the sun to come out! Well, it’s here with a vengeance (temperatures in the high seventies – low eighties Fahrenheit the last couple of days).
And I found myself doing what I always do this time of year – digging that one cd out that I just have to put on to greet the sun. It’s got nothing to do with the sun, nothing at all – but, played absurdly loud, half a dozen bars in I just feel that spring (skank, perhaps) in my step. It’s off with the tie till September, on with the shades and down to the park for a couple of chilled ones before dinner!
Anyone else got a song they greet the change of season with? Not a song about the sun, or even sunny afternoons. Just one they use to signify the change. I’ve been doing this for twenty five or thirty years now! Am I mad? Am I alone?
