You are an ocean wave, my love Crashing at the bow I am a galley slave, my love If only I would find out the way To sail you Maybe I'll just stow away
I’ve probably said this before, but I still have an absolute crush on Julianne Regan’s voice — even now, some 30 years or so after first hearing the album from which this song comes. In reality, I was enamored when she sang backup for the Severina single by The Mission (as well as on several other tracks on the full-length Gods Own Medicine), but I didn’t really get to hear her voice in the foreground until All About Eve released the eponymous album around 1988. I take that back… It may have been with the release of the Our Summer single in 1987.
Regardless, not everyone I’ve tried to introduce her voice to has agreed that it is as beautiful as I think it is, but I still get all dreamy-eyed when I hear the first album. And, honestly, parts of the second album. Yes, there are other voices equally as good, some even better, but hers reminds me of a time and place in my life I of which I was fond.
Anyway, nice acoustic piece for a not-quite-goth band (too much hippie in the sound to be goth).
