A perfect moment recently - out in the car as "Get Ready" by The Temptations played on the radio as the sun shone. Its my song for the weekend. Smokey Robinson, who wrote it, also does a nifty version on his recent DUETS album with our own Gary Barlow. Nothing though tops Smokey's "The Love I Saw In You Was Just A Mirage" which Paul Schrader used as background music as Richard Gere chose his Armani clothes in AMERICAN GIGOLO ...
Its good discovering new people too: currenetly I am listening to Matthew E. White - his FRESH BLOOD album hits all the spots, particularly "Rock n roll is cold".
