Traipsing down memory lane ...

I was eleven the first time I listened to this song. Although I was a callow child with little understanding of romantic notions, but the sincere emotions illuminated by a sweet melody and illustrated by prosaic lyrics really struck me. The song evoked a visceral reaction in me and I remember going to school, humming this song and trying to recapture the sensation I experience even from the opening bar of the song.

Since then, I have been a fan of Robert Palmer and am working towards collecting his discography. He was a talented musician and singer who delved in genres from pop to progressive rock to swing and jazz. But I love him best when he croons love sweet nothings.

Now, I all I need to do is find a guy who will dedicate this song to me. *grin*

Dedicated to you with utmost pleasure...

She's a natural law,
and she leaves me in awe
She deserves the applause,
I surrender because
She used to look good to me,
but now I find her

Simply irresistible
Simply irresistible

The energy and verve of "Simply Irresistible" has yet to be duplicated by current crop of artists, IMHO, do you agree?
