This is a song that I will forever associate with my mum.
When we use to get home from school in Hereford, Mum would almost invariably be in the kitchen making tea, with Radio 2 on the wireless. And as far as I recall, David Jacobs or Diddy David Hamilton or Jimmy Young or whoever only ever played two records.
One was Dawn’s sickly sentimental Tie a Yellow Ribbon, which, awful as it is, still has a place in my heart, but tying a ribbon round an old oak tree has to take second place to looking down on creation.
