So here’s my song for March. Worryingly they seem to be getting later and later each month – doesn’t bode well for the rest of the year!
This is another song I wrote a while ago – probably about ten years to be precise(ish).
A little about the song: Without wanting to go into too much detail, the motivation behind this song was seeing adverts on TV, in newspapers and on magazines showing starving children in areas of poverty and depravation. I didn’t really have the words for it at the time but I was frustrated that although I felt the tug on my heartstrings, this very rarely led to me doing anything about it. There is something deeply dehumanising about these images and the sympathy that they often stir is never really going to change the world. Maybe love will…
