Radio 75, side A, track 8: “Cruel To Be Kind” by Nick Lowe

Nick Lowe - Cruel To Be KindOh, Nick Lowe, I don’t remember where or when I first heard this song, but I do remember that as a real little kid, probably 4 or 5, I absolutely loved it.  I haven’t heard it in forever, but it still hasn’t lost its charm.  I did a little reading about this one and turns out this was one of the first videos ever played on MTV, and the video included footage of your actual wedding.  I don’t know if this is the kind of song one wants associated with their wedding, but it does make this one even more charming to me.  I didn’t understand what “cruel to be kind” meant as a kid, I just knew that it was fun to sing.  So we’re going to leave it at that, because this song (and now the video for it) just make me happy.
