SONG OF THE WEEK #129: Jethro Tull - "Cheap Day Return"

Written by Ian on a train, on the way to his hospitalized father (if memory serves), "Cheap Day Return" is one of those short acoustic beauties that show so well what a great songwriter he is. The heart-melting, slightly whimsical voice, a couple of guitars, and a melody to kill for. And the lyrics of course, full of warmth and humour and just a whiff of sadness. A classic (off Aqualung, of course, 1971).
