31 Days of Music – Day 3

A little late with my post today, but still day three.

My pick of the day is Black with “Wonderful Life”. This was a big hit back in in 1987, although it was released in 1986 then again in 1987. Back when I was 21 I worked just across the hall from the studio where he was recording his album “Black” and my work colleague’s girlfriend was one of his producers. Black’s real name is Colin Vearncombe. In January 2016 he was involved in a car crash in Cork, Ireland and sustained serious head injuries which he died from a few weeks later at the age of 53. Such a shame as he had an incredible voice and was quite talented.

    I love this song soo much! It’s a perfect mix of positive words and a melancholic melody. And his voice was so soft! I was sad when I heard that he had died.

      Agreed, it was a great loss when he passed away. The video makes me smile as I know all the places that it was shot, including our beach.
