Over dinner at Rasoi a few nights ago, the conversation meandered all over the place, and at one point touched upon the kind of music people listened to. Someone was trying to describe Rick Wakeman’s Six Wives to someone else, and one thing led to another and I found myself extolling the virtues of Steve Howe playing Mood for A Day. Probably my favourite guitar instrumental.
And it got me thinking. How many people would be able to give a one-song answer when asked “What is your favourite song of all time”?
If I was forced to live the rest of my life with just one song to keep me company, it would be Suite: Judy Blue Eyes. Magnificent.
So far I have met only one other person who may choose the same song as his all-time Number One, and that’s Hugh.
