The opening beats get me every time...
on August 20, 2012
The opening to Chris De Burgh's "Lady in Red" sets the song's romantic, mysterious, and majestic tones that contribute to what became one of the 80s most famous love ballads. The lyrics compare to those of Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight," though of course, the lady in this song's main feature is her red dress. The lyrics tell a story of a man who recounts the first time he ever saw (presumably) his wife, and thus flatters her with compliments.
It's a great song for a party- especially those 1980s theme parties- though it's just as great for easy listening for when you're by yourself, or when you're with that special someone. I would highly recommend this song being in any person's music collection.
