Today’s song is a charming tribute to the strength of love. Gerry Rafferty recorded his masterpiece, City to City, while travelling regularly from Scotland to London to resolve legal problems dating from his time co-leading Stealers Wheel. The album features his reflections on those journeys, including songs of travel and songs of isolation.
Right Down the Line is a more celebratory track. Inspired by his wife and her steady support during the trying times, it features one of Rafferty’s most direct, upbeat lyrics. The track is also flawless pop, a carefully crafted gem the blends all the musical elements into a perfect framework to support the lyrical sentiment.
Enjoy this delightful song today.
