The 30 day song challenge.
Day 14 - a song that no one would expect you to love - Brook Benton - Fools rush in.
This song reminds me of growing up. The record player was in the living room and I had to take my turn. In between my grandmother playing Joseph Locke and Harry Secombe, my dad would play Ray Charles, Jim Reeves, some awful country music... and, a 20 greatest hits of Brook Benton. I loved every track, but this one has stayed with me and is never very far away from a playlist.
I have heard lots of versions of this track, but none comes close in my opinion, Mr Benton had a very distinctive voice, and this track is just brilliant.
When we met, I felt my life begin, so open up your heart and let this fool rush in...
