I Just Want To Be A Woman
I went to pick one of the kids up the other night and was flicking through radio stations in the car, trying to find something- anything- half decent to listen to. Just as I was about to give up I tuned in to the second half of Glory Box by Portishead. Sometimes you have to hear a song unexpectedly, out of context, to really hear it again. It sounded really, really good.
There was a period in 1994 when it seemed like the only thing anyone was listening to was Portishead. I always really liked this alternate version from the 12" single.
It's half term and we are in the Lake District for the next couple of days, near Ulverston (which I can't think of without singing it to the tune of Glen Campbell's Galveston). See you in a few days.
