Sometimes it pays off to be away from the place where you’ve almost laid roots. Because when you come back from a road trip, get to cross the road and this Blondie’s song starts playing at the second-hand shop on the opposite, you know that it is for you. You just know. Especially because the song was written in the year I was born. Manchester may be gloomy and gray (unlike Essex), but when it greets you with this song you can’t help but loving it with all your heart. And when literally the next day after you’ve come from one road trip you are sent to another one, you absolutely know: it’s all for you.
