In my freshman year of college, I lived in the dorms. I hated that social scene, and was overwhelmed by all the new experiences and busy schedule. My pillar of calm, my musical eucalyptus, was Chris de Burgh. I set my cassette boombox to wake me up with Man on the Line or The Getaway most mornings.
Today Chris is turning 60. I wish him a long, healthy life, and offer him thanks for all the years of musical companionship.
