It’s May, It’s May, the lusty month of May…
I wondered why this is the only melody that runs through my head when I think of this most sensuous of months. A search of Youtube, Wikipedia and Google told me why – songs praising the glorious month of May are about as scarce as Chrysler futures. The ancient celebrations of promiscuity and procreation seem to have been trampled by proletarian boots and protesters’ sandals.
My consolation is in finding the lusty voice of British neo-soul singer, Lemar (click here for Lemar at MySpace).
