I had never heard this song up to a few months ago. I had never even heard of Badlands. But my husband kidnapped my MP3 player a few months ago and transferred. their album ‘Voodoo Highway’ on it. I was surprised at how much I liked their music.
This track is my absolute favourite. There’s a raw, heart-wrenching quality to it that makes it sound like a personal prayer. It’s a short song, just over 2 minutes, but quite powerful and I just keep pushing the ‘play’ button over and over because I just wish it didn’t have to end so soon.
On a different note, my mother-in-law will arrive tomorrow for a three week visit so I may not be posting and visiting as often as usual – but I will do the rounds whenever I have some time.
