A friend and I were shootin’ the breeze earlier about more songs that are the soundtrack of our lives. (In the last little while we’ve discussed James Taylor, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan here at The Paepae — who all easily make the list.)

Graeme and I recently went with our wives to dinner and the James Taylor & Carole King concert along with muso and living treasure Dave Dobbyn and his wife and some other friends. Dave’s music makes the list, too, of course, and he’s great company as well. My student flat in Willis St used to rock to DD Smash: Outlook for Thursday and The Devil You Know. (I think Dave’s lyric, ‘The best of the worst you can handle’ is brilliant!)

Anyway, this song is another one of mine … Chris Rea’s On the Beach — classic!
