Valotte

I heard this Julian Lennon song in a drug store while searching for a birthday card for my dad. I had to go through the whole rack to find one in that rarefied greeting card middle ground between treacle and bodily humor.

Hearing it over those distorted speakers under the florescent light gave me a twinge of nostalgia. 1984: I was 9 years old, and this song hit #9 on the US charts. I probably listened to it on my Panasonic AM/FM/Cassette boombox, which is now listed as "vintage" on ebay.
