A New England – Billy Bragg
There are songs that upon first listen go straight to your soul.
Or find that place in your heart you try your best to keep covered up, and with a couple guitar riffs and wordsmithery, the door is just blown open and you’re left standing gobsmacked in the best possible way.
For me, this is one of those songs.
I was reminded of it recently, and thank goodness, as its been a while. I don’t really want to ramble about what this song means to me, or makes me think of, but as I listen now, it reminds me of growth and hope.
I have had the worst week. Its been beyond surreal, and although I’ve had great support, it doesn’t stop the tears when the lights go out. Yet even through the tinny sound of my laptop speakers life seems a bit better knowing great music like this is there to fill the spaces in between.
