Saturday Night

Driving home late last Saturday my iPhone shuffled to Saturday Night by The Blue Nile.  Now I have to say that during the emotional ups and downs of the last year or so I’ve found many of my favourite songs unbearable to listen to.  Bonnie Raitt has suffered unduly from my sudden need to hit the forward button on my car’s dashboard, as have Paul Buchanan’s band.  But last Saturday I was in good spirits, the song was serendipitous in its timing, and prompted a range of images to mind.  With this being Valentine’s weekend, I thought it would make a different sort of post to put words and pictures (some old, some new) together.
