We have reached that time of the month, where I celebrate a favourite song of mine, here at Girl at the Piano. Last month’s choice was a Bollywood song which means this month will be a Western classic, and I have chosen Stars by Simply Red.
My close friend and family circle all know just how big a fan I am of the group Simply Red. I grew up listening to their music, and appreciating all of the many genres (soul/jazz/pop/rock) that they added to create their unique sound. The band’s leader and lead singer Mick Hucknall, is my first music idol and continues to be til this very day (yes, I do wish they were still making music!)
So for this month’s golden oldie, I have chosen the title track of one of their albums, Stars. I remember instantly falling in love with the style of this composition, and also learning about a new angle of love from its lyrics. My favourite lyric from the song is “A lovers promise never came with a maybe…” and whenever I listen to this song, I can just sense how much feeling and soul Mick has added to it.
Enjoy the video of Stars below, and let me know if it is also one of your favourite songs too!
