Music Monday #36 Maxi Priest – Close To You

By | 01:58 12 comments

This is one of my all time favourite tunes !!! Such a beautiful song with amazing lyrics.  I remember listening to this back in my school days – on a cassette !!! Those were the days.  I actually know the lyrics of this track quite well and it came back to me quite easily as I played this on my laptop today.

I’ve never seen the video before (didn’t even think about ever looking it up either) but it’s nice to see it now.  Gives me a goose bumps (not the video) every time I hear this track. 

I just wanna be close to you and show you the way I feel.  Damn right I do !! I just need to find YOU for that !!
