Loved the Waterboys blistering version of “Maggie’s Farm”, Bonnie. That might be right up there with Jimi Hendrix’s version of “All Along The Watchtower” as my favourite Dylan cover!

“Whole Of The Moon” is actually on my long list of songs to write about too.

If I’m honest, I probably heard it too often in the 80s…although not quite as often as you, by your count!…but “rediscovered” it a few years ago and now I feel I appreciate it as the truly great song it is.

Thanks for the eclectic selection, as ever, Bonnie. That’s quite a set of 80’s classics!

Without words, it’s just a nice tune. Add words — now you’ve got a song. And songs can change your world. I write about some that changed mine.
