Week 3 – Thing of Beauty by Hot House Flowers
The Hot House Flowers are a fantastic Irish band who have been recording since the late 1980s when U2’s Bono helped them get their first break.
I used to wonder how such a great band never made it big – but now I just forget all that and enjoy their wonderful music.
Thing of Beauty is about enjoying the little things in life; stop and enjoy it all. If this song doesn’t put you in a good mood, there is something wrong with you – call in sick.
Look out your window on a winter’s morning Your breath is steam and there’s frost falling And the sun casts a spell upon the road A thing of beauty is not a thing to ignore
