Song of the Day, January 1: Airscape by Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians
January 1, 2012 Leave a comment
Today’s song is Airscape by Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians. Taken from their wonderful 1986 album Element of Light, this is one of the band’s rare uplifting songs. It’s a perfect way to welcome in the new year.
And in the element of light
The sun reflected from the waves
The shore in spangles
The child of air is borne upon the wind that blows across the sea
Where angels hover
I’ll hover too
Where angels hover — over you
Raise a glass of champagne and enjoy this beautiful song as 2012 begins.
