My mum and I heard the track Porcelain on one of those chill out jazz compilation CDs my Dad’s so fond of and both really liked it. So I decided to buy her the album it’s on as a surprise present which of course I ended up listening to and liking.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 23?
Start Wearing Purple. Amy played it to me in her car, she said I’d like it as it was almost weird enough for me.
3. What’s your favourite lyric by 33?
God that’s hard as I love her primarily for her lyrics. Some of my favourites are:
Even molluscs have weddings,
Though solemn and leaden,
But you dirge for the dead,
And take no jam on your bread,
Just a supper of salt and a waltz through your empty bed
And, Emily, I saw you last night by the river.
I dreamed you were skipping little stones across the surface of the water
Frowning at the angle where they were lost, and slipped under forever,
