Marti Webb – Take That Look Off Your Face
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. 🙂
