Time for some music – Colour My World, Petula!

This is one of the best pop tunes from it’s era, with a theme that has some resonance to a synaesthete such as myself. This song is a studio recording from before the age of music videos, so there is no clip, but for me the photo used as a visual is interesting because the beautiful Petula Clark has an uncanny resemblance to two women who I’ve known. Both of these women are unusually feminine women but paradoxically wore or wear their hair short just like Petula did in her heyday, presumably because nature thought it fit to give some very feminine women very heavy jaw-lines. A jaw of that type in combination with prominent cheek-bones would no doubt look masculine or witch-like next to long hair. Why does nature do these things? I don’t know.
