The First Picture Of Summer
As summer seems to have arrived to most parts of the country, my thoughts have inevitably turned to summers past. Some songs are time machines, taking you back to the time to when you first heard it. This song, by the Lotus Eaters, always takes me back to a particular afternoon in the long hot summer of 1983. Would I go back there right now, if I could? I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted but I know, I know, I know that it would never be anything like how I remember it, so best leave it as a picture in my mind, forever perfect.
