Morning Song – This Charming Life

June 9, 2017

Joan Armatrading’s 2010 single, “This Charming Life”, starts out in a light, easy-going groove familiar to long-time fans who’ve followed her career since her early folk-rock success in the 1970s.

But then it builds to a searing distortion-filled electric guitar solo (at 2:10) where Armatrading proves, if proof were needed, that turning 60 is no barrier to rocking out with passion and fire…especially if you’ve kept the home fires burning all these years.

Every morning when I open my eyes,
You’re the first thing that I see;
Lady luck she really took to me,

Because, I live and love with you,
This charming life.
