I have no idea why the song Lady in Red makes me so sad. It was never “our song” with someone who’s no longer around. I’ve never suffered any emotional trauma that became linked to it, and red is my favourite colour (and quite suits me).
And yet, when it came on last evening, the feeling that came over me was as immediate as it was familiar. Fortunately, I had a fortifying gin and tonic in my hand at the time. 🙂
