Whenever Robert and I host dinner parties (of course we have had a break during the Pandemic), we will talk about music for the evening based on the guests who are coming and the dishes we are serving.

Every Sunday, I take part in SONG LYRIC SUNDAY, and even hosted by Jim Adams. I thought that the songs I have featured make up a very diverse compilation and I wanted to provide you with both a Spotify playlist and a directory of posts so that you can peruse them at your leisure:
