EAR WORM No. 3 MARVIN GAYE – Inner City Blues (Makes Me Wanna Holler)

1 Comment

No surprises why I can’t get this song out of my head.

It’s a nice day today in London. No rain, a bit of sun, birds tweeting and all that.

But all I can see is the image of a little kid resplendent in his Sunday best, all grown up teeth and big brown eyes, smiling into a camera and holding a sign with his name on it, that is burned into my retinas.

It is the first thing that has made me want to cry for months.

I don’t like crying. My first instinct? Take more meds. Tamp down the feeling.

But somehow that doesn’t seem right.

I may hide in this little flat from the horrors of the world, but that doesn’t mean they don’t happen and won’t affect me.
So maybe I should get off my arse, and follow my heartfelt urge to be of use to people whilst I still can.

God alone knows how the loved ones of the dead and suffering must be feeling. What I feel pales in comparison.

God speed little one. I hope the person that tore you from the fabric of this life can live with themselves for what they have done.

Actually scratch that, I hope that, like me, they cannot get your image out of their head and that it stays there, day after day, night after night until they finally meet their maker.

Big love.
