Geek FM: Sunshine on Leith

When I got married, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my and my wife’s CD collections complemented each other nicely. There was very little overlap, but she dug most of what I contributed and vice versa. As a result, I got introduced to a lot of good music. One of the albums that I still thank my wife to this day for introducing me to is The Proclaimer’s Sunshine on Leith.

Sure, it’s got the catchy hits “I’m Gonna Be (500 miles)” and “I’m On My Way”. But it has so much more. The haunting melody of the title track. The melancholy harmonies “Teardrops”. The bluesy refrain of “My Old Friend the Blues”. The wide-eyed optimism of “Sean”. The sheer joy of love in “Then I Met You.” I can sit and listen to this album over and over.

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
