Uptown Girl


In the year 1983 on the date 7th November it was snowing and my mother was delighted to be off-loading her first child. It was to be a little girl.

As the car drove her to the hospital, to get this pea shelling over and done with, the UK’s number one hit was blaring out of the radio. Probably. Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh oh…. and so forth.

This Uptown Girl now wanders, fully wrapped up and expecting thermals to arrive any day now, on the Upper East Side to get to work. Some people might call that fate?

The YouTube clip. Bring back pleasant memories mum? Uptown Girl
