Reply to "Distant Sun"

Good post Anselm.

There's just something about Distant Sun that gets me every time. One day it means something, the next day it means something entirely different to me.

I have a friend who is crazy about music, loves a lot of music that really doesn't grab me - I can see that the stuff he chooses to listen to is very technically good, and probably really difficult to write and play (I am no musician so I think I lose a bit of understanding there), but we always differ because of our different angles.

When it comes to Together Alone, I always felt I had two favourite songs anyway. There was Distant Sun, of course, which always had a deep emotional personal impact on me; and secondly Fingers of Love, because I love it in an entirely different way, perhaps more musically than lyrically. My friend thinks I put too much emphasis on lyrics btw, but that's what works for me! I don't think it's the best song Neil has ever written (or co-written), but it is by far my favourite. Smiler
