"Turn down the light, turn up the radio, there's a fire in your eyes and it's keeping me warm......"
And then Melodeon Boy turns up and the fire goes out, just like it did on the BBC board when he turned up there, and the fRoots board when he turned up there...etc. etc.....
"This time can be like the first time, close your eyes and we soon will be there.."
*Right back there*....in The Arena at Sidmouth's 50th Festival, on a hot, sultry summer's evening...when Kate Rusby held nearly 5,000 people in the palm of her hand, for the entire evening, literally 'underneath the stars'...with her beautiful, gentle, individual voice....her warmth and her gorgeous humour.
"No man could ever guess what you're feeling...."
And there were many men, women and children....who fell in love with Kate that night...
I think it's wonderful that she's finally out there!
I watched her on Top Of The Pops, with my children 11 and 19, who already love her music..and I felt so very chuffed! She shone out amongst all those other pouting, tarty, self-obsessed bimbos....she looked nervous and sweet and Ronan took care of her and smiled right at her.....I think it'll be Number One shortly.
MAGIC!!!.......ROCK/POP/FOLK ON KATE!
And now I'm off to watch the video once more....and beam from ear to ear 'all over again'
So....if anyone would care to join me....right here....in front of the fire...I'll just 'turn down the light' and........
"Come and step through the stars, take a ride through the universe, as long as we're here let's take the whole thing in....Because this time can be like the first time, close your eyes and soon we'll be there....Just like the first time that you touched my skin and I tasted heaven, take me there again......Your smile, your touch, your taste.....then I'll keep falling in love with you all over again"
'Turn a spark to a flame' and get right behind Kate......she's lighting the way into folk music for many people.
Oh! And put another log on the fire would you? ;0)
