Recovering from writers block, I decided to try a little bit of writing each day to get myself back into the swing of things.
What better way to do this than to set myself a challenge – post 100 songs in 100 days!
I’ve seen people posting a song or album cover a day for 10 days and think it’s a great idea, so I’ll go that one step further…
Today’s song is by George Michael – Kissing a Fool.
Released in 1988 this jazzy number is a huge favourite of mine. Forever pushing boundaries he released a song not in tune with the current climate of the time – it was all syntheizers, pop and rock ballads – but Jazz? who did Jazz!
‘Kissing a Fool’ is a timeless song, sounding just as fresh today as it did back in the 80’s, just one rotation of this track is never enough for me, I always have to give it at least 5/6 plays back to back.
Always brings a tear to my eye at the loss of such a great singer, songwriter and performer. RIP George Michael.
