Musical Mondays – “On the Beach”

-40 ºC  is where it also equals -40 ºF. That’s how cold it was in certain parts of North America over the weekend.

I had deluded myself into thinking it might be a mild winter after a temperate December. So, what did I do when it got so cold it took my breath away to be outside for just ten minutes? I thought of the beach, sand, ocean, and then Chris Rea came to mind.

Remember him? He’s the Englishman who had a few big hits in the eighties—one of the biggest: “On the Beach.”

I read up on him, discovered he had suffered pancreatitis in 2000 with a 50% chance of survival. He promised that if he recovered, he would return to his blues roots. Well … he made it, and it’s nice to hear. I’ve always loved his voice, his slide guitar, and of course, I love the blues.

Enjoy the return of Chris Rea, and hope this song warms you up on this cold day.

Stay sexy,

  1. I didn’t know this one – enjoyed it with my first coffee of the day – I know him best for his ‘road to hell’ – great voice and guitar work


  2. Hi Alberta, yes, “Road to Hell” was another big hit for him. Nice to see him still doing music after all these years.
