I Often Dream Of..

Robyn Hitchcock live. Having seen the man myself I can only imagine what this must have been like. (The Song In My Head Today)

You know how sometimes at a concert you hear a song you think you know well, and suddenly in performance it simply explodes with new significance? That's what happened last night with "I Used to Say I Love You." A seemingly simple acoustic number, floating along on a deceptively childlike melody, it came across last night as a spellbinding song, and a wondrously acute dissection of human emotion.
