Sometimes just getting into the car can bring a burst of nostalgia. One such occasion happened today, with the radio playing David Essex and his famous track Hold Me Close.
Now this took me back to going home for lunch from primary school, to my mother making ham, egg and chips, and Gloria Hunniford on Radio 2 (this is in the UK).
Music has a great gift for giving us a sense of time and rememberance. Memories of happier times, but also sadness for loss of those times.
This isn’t a song I would listen to a lot, but for a few minutes I was happy, back at the lunch table!
