Musical interlude

While posting the Kris Kristofferson clip I found this one, which I remember from when Hilary and I saw KK in Edinburgh back in the early 1980s. Rita Coolidge guested with him, and they did this. I loved it then and I love it now.

And while listening to "Me and Bobby McGee" with its story of two drifters, a woman whose restless spirit eventually led the man to lose her, I realised that another of my favourite songs is a kind of English equivalent. It has a similar storyline, and the same sense of loss, regret and wistful love.
