Last week, with a Golden Discs voucher worth a blooming €25 on offer, I asked for your favourite song about or mentioning Spring.
You entered in your dozens.
But there could be only one winner.
Poisoning Pigeons In The Park by Tom Lehrer
When I think of Spring, my mind turns to Tom Lehrer’s song about the delightful pastimes that Spring affords us all. This makes me smile every time I hear it. I’m sad that he gave up performing back in the 70’s, claiming that satire was dead once Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973. On the other hand, he is still alive (aged 91), so there is still hope that he’ll do a retirement World Tour in the near future. I’ll be at the front of the line for tickets…
The Rain Song By Led Zeppelin
Rosette of Sirius writes:
I love the folksy ballad like feel to the start of the song that builds with intensity as Plant’s pitch and volume increases as does Page’s orchestral melody. A gorgeous and powerful song.
Go Down Easy by John Martyn
‘Curl around me like a fern in spring…..’
All I can say is , what an image…. oh my love. I know people judge the man – fair enough. But could he pen a tune?
Nick says: Thanks all.
