Bread - Blooming Brilliant

I was looking for some guitar music which might interest my son who is teaching himself to play the acoustic and electric guitar. Then I remembered BREAD and David Gates from all those years ago. As soon as I played them my son loved them all too.

All three songs moved me intensely 30 years ago and believe it or not, they still do today.

The first, DIARY, is a delightful song about a young man reading a young lady's diary (naughty boy) and jumping to the wrong conclusion. Haven't we all done this from time to time? Not read ladies diaries but jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Next is a great song, LOST WITHOUT YOUR LOVE

Next is another famous BREAD song, EVERYTHING I OWN

Of course I could have mentioned many more hits like IF and others.

I hope you ladies had your handkerchiefs with you.

What a big old softy Mr Bluelights is!!

    Sorry to hear you are none the wiser of any dates for your hip op. Will pray that you move quickly to the top of the list.

  3. My favorite was "It Don't Matter To Me"... Oh, goodness, talk about a trip down memory lane..!
