Writing and Reading

This week’s program has a more intellectual bent. It presents songs about writing and reading. Love letters figure in four of the songs: Pat Boone’s very popular Love Letters In The Sand and English singer Alison Moyet’s version of the old song Love Letters and The Box Tops with The Letter. Neil Sedaka wants to peep into his girlfriend’s diary in The Diary. The songs about writing are Marty Robbin’s catchy The Story Of My Life’, Barry Manilow’s classic I Write The Songs and a Simon and Garfunkel track from their acclaimed album Bridge over Troubled Water – Why Don’t You Write Me? Deliverers of letters also get a mention in The Carpenters Please Mr Postman and Elvis Presley’s Return To Sender.
