Kayleigh - Piotr Rodak

Kayleigh

It's been about 25 years since I've heard Misplaced Childhood or the first time in my life. There was time when I could sing the whole album along with Fish.
Thankfully karaoke and youtube weren't as popular in Poland in 1985 as they are now, or I could've ended up in a lip sync hit like these two chaps:

I learned a lot of english words from lyrics, sometimes to great joy of my english speaking friends. Yet I just realized today, what 'dancing in stilletos in the snow' actually meant. I always felt that it had to be pretty romantic, enough to mention it in a song. I never knew at that time though what those stilettos might be. Then, many years later, I learned the word and the meaning, but it's only today when it hit me and eventually I can paint the whole image of that dance in my mind. And it is a 'frozen' image, though still romantic.

So, I had a revelation, you might say.
