Day 22 – A song that reminds you of your wife

30 Day Song Challenge
Day 22 – A song that reminds you of your wife

I first met when we were at university together where she was in the Arts Faculty and I was in Science studying Computing. I didn't realise that, at the time I was attempting to win her heart, a major stumbling block for her was that I was a scientist! She didn't see how she could love someone that didn't share her love of language and literature.

As I said, I din't realise this at the time but one day, when she was visiting our flat, I played her the Joni Mitchell album - Blue.

Apparently, as I explained to her why My Old Man was such a good song and why I especially liked the lyric: "The frying pan's too wide", she decided there might be hope for me after all: that the heart of an artist might be lurking beneath my cold scientific exterior. Not that she have me any hint of that at the time!

Aww! I didn't know this story. I'm taking some credit then, because didn't you first hear Blue/JM through me? (And you're right - the frying pan line is great!)
