Tuesday Tunes: Biggest Musical Regret

Over at The Music Memoirs they're asking us to tell them about our biggest musical regret. Mine is not going to see Kirsty MacColl in concert when I had the chance back in the nineties (wish I could be more accurate with the date, but sadly I can't). I'd wanted to see her for ages, since 1989's sublime Kite, but she suffered from stagefright (I'd tried to buy tickets for a concert for her a few years previously, but it had been cancelled). Anyway, I finally had a ticket to see her, and was all set to go that night, but it had been a busy day at work and I was dead on my feet and it was an all-standing venue, so I decided in my laziness to give it a miss, figuring I could catch her again some other day. Unfortunately, fate is fickle, and her tragic and untimely death in 2000 meant that I never did get to see her. Thank goodness I can still listen to her.

Oh Kirsty was such an awesome singer/songwriter. That is a shame. BTW that's only a small fraction of my collection on rate your music. I'm still working on my list.

Aw man, that's the worst. I've only heard a few songs by Kirsty, but I liked them. As you mentioned, you at least can still listen to her.
