My Music Monday

I am in a Kirsty MacColl mood. Lately, I haven't been able to get her first hit, "A New England" out of my head. 

The song was originally written by Billy Bragg (who is great in his own right), whom MacColl allegedly "discovered". 

Bragg's version is almost half as short as Kirsty's. He added two verses for her. 

It's hard to believe that she has been gone for a little over 20 years. I always wonder what else she would have done. She was a great talent.
