Sometimes We Cry

Long time ago, I heard the title of this song in a bar in Myanmmar, in the company of one local, 5 other interns and a Singaporean archeologist whose greatest joy was shocking other Singaporeans.

I took to it immediately.

First, cos Tom Jones sang it, and Sexbomb was damn hot at the time. I am shallow, so sue me.

And second, cos the song title was meant something to me at the time. Still does.

I made a note on my notebook (the paper kind, Myanmmar bans anybody from bringing handphones and laptops into the country) and when I came back to Singapore, I hunted for it. Took damn long, but when I heard the song in its entirety, it was worth it.

So friends, here it is. Not a chart topper, but one of my favourite songs of all time. Enjoy.
