Song of the Day, February 9: Whatever’s Written In Your Heart by Gerry Rafferty

RaffertyHeartToday’s song is a quiet epic from Gerry Rafferty’s City to City. The album is built on meditations about relationships and distance. Whatever’s Written In Your Heart is a moving look at thoughts and actions and how they overlap. Reflecting on the tensions and misunderstandings that can arise in a relationship with long absences, Rafferty insists that in the end a true heart can win the day. Building slowly over six-and-a-half minutes, he lays down a deceptively simple voice and keyboard structure. Anthemic but folky, it’s brilliant and moving.

Enjoy this wonderful song today.
