Radio XII, side B, track 12: “Time And Tide” by Basia

Oh, Basia, you wonderful, mysterious woman you.  This little wonderful song is nestled right at the very end of Radio XII, and I loved it so, but to get to it, it meant I’d either have to listen to 90 minutes of music or fast forward all the way to the end of Side A and flip it around and then rewind it until I found the beginning of the song.  And then of course fast forward again so that the tape was all rewound and ready to listen to from the very beginning because I’m anal retentive like that.

Your voice is so amazing.  It’s like if Greta Garbo traveled forward in time and became a pop star.  That husky voice, your vocal phrasings of the lyrics, those crazy runs from deep lady bass to the most beautiful harpy in the world, this is one of my “diamond songs”, a song I never heard except for on my tape collection, a rare and wonderful jewel in the crown that is music.  I love this song, Basia, and my love for it will always stay as good as new.

“Time And Tide”

It’s hard for me to stop my heart
Love never knows
When the time is right
I don’t want to hurt anybody, but
