This Must Be The Place

I thought I'd just post a song today.

Its my favourite song in the world, and its performed by Shawn Colvin, my favourite singer.
The song is actually written by David Byrne from Talking Heads, but Shawn sings it beautifully.

Its a love song, and it has some wonderful lines like 'When you're standing here beside me, I love the passing of time...' and 'Out of all those kinds of people, you've got a face with a view...'

Obviously, I have dedicated this song many times to my lovely hubby, but I also think its a song that can be applied to friendship too - 'I am just an animal, looking for a home, to share the same space for a minute or two...'

I'm very lucky to have so many lovely friends - so this one's for you lot.


  1. I couldn't have imagined David Byrne (a lot of people don't know he's Scottish!) writing such a meaningful song but I guess he'll do it in his own folk-rocky manner.

    Shawn has a beautiful voice. And her finger picking is impeccable! I've saved this to my youtube faves.

  2. Glad you like it Lena. David Byrne's version is VERY different - worth a look on youtube too.
    Seen Shawn a few times live - once at the Arches in Glasgow under the rumbling trains!
