We have spoken on numerous occasions about the music that has shaped our lives. You know that music performance has been my profession at different points in my career. I say this to stress how in tune (if you’ll pardon the pun) I am with the musical world.
I often hear songs and they make me think of you. It could be because we had listened to them together. Maybe its because they were popular around the time of our courtship. At other times I have known them for years, but when I hear them now they reveal a new relevance or meaning that is more pertinent to our current plight.
There is an old track from 1975 floating around on my music player by the band 10CC titled “I’m Not In Love.” Its an amazing record on a number of levels. Recorded well before the advent of the digital music revolution it features a multi tracked 256 voice faux choir, similar in style to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody (although I think the Queen track only has 64 voices).
The story it tells is of a guy denying his love, even though all of his actions show him clearly very much in love. Now I don’t have to deny that I am in love my Darling, but I do very much have to deny my desire to act on it.
So here it is 10CC’s I’m Not In Love.
You Will Always Be My Darling
From Sir With Love
I didn’t think I knew this song, but when I listened to it I realized that I have heard it before – probably on an oldies radio station. I really can’t say, but I did recognize it though.
It’s a beautiful, old song. Your taste in music is so vast; I love it.
I believe the very reason I started this blog site is a testament that I won’t deny loving you either. I wanted to honor you and my love for you through my letters. I also wanted you to have record of my feelings in case anything ever happened to me (no I’m not being dark, just realistic).
My sweet Sir, I am in love so don’t forget it. I’m in love, yes.
