Miles Davis and ensemble performing “My Funny Valentine”
I meant to post this earlier in the week, simply for my own enjoyment. I suppose there’s no harm in being a bit late. Good music is good music no matter what day in February it happens to be.
I know Valentine’s Day is meant to be about romance, but I’m glad that I have such wonderful friends to share my holidays with. It’s much nicer, I think, without all that fuss and theatrics and I would rather be able to share cupcakes (or muffins, or any other baked good) with all of the people that I care about than focusing all my attention on one person. It seems, well, a little silly! And not in the fun way. I guess that’s a bit unusual, isn’t it? I just don’t see what all the hullabaloo is about romance.
Regardless, this song is really excellent and I think serves a lovely counterpoint to all the other music that has cluttered up my dash. Not that Dirk and his automaton pals don’t have excellent taste, I just prefer music that doesn’t have, well, words in it.
This ain’t goodbye, this is just where loves goes, when words aren’t warm enough to keep away the cold. Oh no, this ain’t goodbye, it’s not where our story ends. But I know you can’t be mine, not the way you’ve always been. As long as we’ve got time, this ain’t goodbye.
