Yesterday a couple of things happened that emphasised the power of music to move me.

When I was listening to music on shuffle at work in the afternoon Richard Thomson’s cover of Oops I Did It Again from the album 1000 Years of Popular Music came on. Whenever this song plays unexpectedly I can’t help grinning like a loon.

Later in the day I cam across a video of Frank Sinatra recording the song It Was a Very Good Year. There are no words to express how much I love this song and how long it’s been a part of my life. The very definition of old school cool.

Over on the big blog some thoughts on music, inspired by Britney (really), Richard Thompson and Sinatra.
