This month’s favourite golden oldie song is Enough by Simply Red who are one of my favourite music bands and icons.
I grew up listening to their music since the late 80s and Enough (which is on the album A New Flame), has always been a firm favourite of mine. Not only is it a smooth jazz track, it has an incredible jazz piano solo in the middle of the song, yet the lyrics convey thoughts about the breakdown of a relationship, set against a very jazzy backdrop!
I have seen many live performances of this track and Mick Hucknall and his band do a wonderful job each time. Unfortunately, I have never seen them perform live and I decided to change this once I heard they would be performing at Magic at Christmas in November. I have got my ticket to see them along with another favourite of mine Jack Savoretti and I cannot wait for this afternoon musical treat! I will of course be sharing my review of the multi-artist concert, here at the blog so stay tuned for that.
