I play this song every year on my birthday. It's bittersweet. Lots of memories. The chime making my dog bark; the birth of my first son; realizing that it is not possible to never grow old, yet somehow believing every word Van says.
Someday, I plan to play this for the right, dazzling woman, who will not be able to resist Van, even if she can resist me... this is mesmerizing, glorious stuff... a real masterwork from the Lion of Belfast.
