100 Days of Songs: Day 1
PM Dawn — Set Adrift on Memory Bliss
Anyone that knows me at all, knows that this song is quintessential to who I am. I’m not sure why. I first heard it on MTV the very last time I lived in Nairobi in the early 90s. It stuck with me since then. I didn’t know about Spandau Ballet or really anything about PM Dawn. But there is something soothing about Prince Be’s voice. I think maybe the beach setting in the song helps a little too. It has never left my playlist, whether that playlist was on a mixtape or on my iPod. It’s a keeper.
