Love, set it free.

Dear Pogue, Love? Nowhere do we find more said on the subject of love than in contemporary music. It seems every other song that appears wants to tell about love of one sort or another. Amongst these are some deep insights and profound thinking, none more so than Sting’s utterance: If you love someone, set … Continue reading Love, set it free.

Hey Pogue, Here’s a love song to curl up and listen to quietly with the lights turned down low. As we explore love and what it’s all about this song brings out some of the mismatch and wrong motivation I’m thinking. A love failing perhaps. But a beautiful haunting song that, I hope, will touch … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now💓

Love, the mountain.

Dear Pogue, Love? To love. To be in love. To be loved. To have loved. What does it all mean? Are you aware that the Greeks have multiple words for love?

So Pogue, The last letter I sent you was titled ‘Affairs Of The Heart’. Well one thing led to another as things are want to do and before I had even put my pen down I’m remembering a song from back then. I know, it’s my curse, but it keeps me smiling.

Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.

Pogue, When God wore short trousers there was this song 🎵 🎶 Me, I was a wisp of a lad. But anyway, the song was by Sutherland Brothers and Quiver who recorded several albums and, as bands do, disappeared. And, here I am trying to occasionally bring you music you haven’t heard. I think I … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
