Marti Webb – Take That Look Off Your Face

by Simon

I know what you’re thinking, a Lloyd webber tune?  Has he lost it?  Not really.  This reminds me of being a kid, reading comics and playing with my Star Wars toys. I turned 11 when this was a hit.

Listening to it now, the verses are very mannered soft rock.  But the chorus is pure Bacharach meets Spector.  You can almost imagine Dusty singing it.

It also was a song my mum loved. And I can’t quite believe its been exactly two years since she was first taken ill.  Two years with everything that has happened since.  I never thought I would come through the other side, but I did.

Hello mum enjoy the song.  🙂
