January 5, 2020 – Heaven

It was 1984. Oh… no, not *that* 1984. Summer of 1984… a post-punk band, the Psychedelic Furs, released their fourth album which contained the song, “Heaven.” A rather obscure band at the time, though they had a touch of pop appeal…

Anyway, 36 years later, “Heaven” still brings me joy like it did when I first heard it. Can’t explain it; it’s just that way. Makes me smile and feel gratitude every time I hear it. I shared with folks back at the time, a memory from a couple of years ago when a bike jam rode into Winnipeg’s Old Market Square and one of the riders was playing the song on a boombox… it was very late and I’d driven there to hear our Kieran playing in a band giving a show for the bike jammers. What a fun and serendipitous time.

Now you know a little about why it’s my song of the day for today  Please enjoy.

Here’s the official video from the Psychedelic Furs YouTube channel:
