Metarie

This is one of a select few songs that have an inexplicable and unavoidable effect on me: it makes me cry for no reason whatsoever. It doesn’t matter where I am, what I’m doing or what mood I’m in, by the second verse I have to turn and look stoically into the middle distance and have a manly lip wobble. The Whole of the Moon by The Waterboys does the same thing, and that’s a big, bombastic happy epic romp of a tune. So why does it make me blub like a toddler who’s accidentally swallowed hs favourite bt of lego? Couldn’t tell you. But if you decide to play this video, turn the sound down so I can’t hear it, there’s a love.
