Morning Song – Valerie

October 27, 2015

“Valerie” is perfectly ordinary, competent, professional synth-pop from the 1980s…but then there’s Steve Winwood’s gorgeous, sweet, pure English-choirboy-with-a-touch-of-soul tenor soaring high on the chorus, and all of a sudden a smile comes to your face as something lightens in your heart.

It even—just barely—makes up for the cheesy ’80s video production.  (Children, don’t let your parents tell you everything was better back in the day.)
