The theme for tonight’s Café Live event in Loughborough was – with Valentine’s day looming – love songs. My set (bass and vocals, with support from Les on jazz keys) was:
- Blue Moon
- Valerie (jazzed up chords)
- But Beautiful
Is Valerie (originally by the Zutons and released in 2006, although successfully covered by Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse the next year) really a love song? Near enough, I think, and I like the way it sounds with a C major seven in the driving seat.
I didn’t try Reynardine, but I think that served its purpose in prompting yesterday’s recording.
