With apologies to Baz who will hate me for this, though not as much as he hates me for the Morrissey faux pas, lol. Anyway I beg you to listen to the end for the amazing gospel chorus…and the video is rather wonderful too.
This song has brought me to tears when I still had tears to shed. Still gives me goosebumps actually. And I dedicate it to my mum, who I saw yesterday, and is far and away the best friend I ever had. Actually there are also a shit ton of beautiful hip hop tracks dedicated to mums. Tupac’s ‘Dear Mama’ also springs to mind.
