Occasional comments on what I'm reading and listening to

Open to persuasion
I started thinking the other day about songs that have grabbed me immediately, either because of something about the music, or something about the lyrics. And I thought of Joan Armatrading's "Love and Affection" (which you can see and hear here, find the lyricshere, and buy the album here). It begins:
I am not in love But I'm open to persuasion...
What a beautiful opening and a beautiful sentiment. I don't think, really, there's any need to say anything more.
