40 Moyet Moments

Thankyou so much for this podcast .. What an amazing way to share 40 years of Alison’s wonderful and varied career 👍.. I’ve only listened to the first two and I’m already in awe of her raw honesty and individuality and can already see why she is the biggest jewel 💎 in the crown of pop royalty and how her otherness has enabled her to create some of the most poetic , heart wrenching , tear jerking songs that we all know and love today, and the fact that Alison embraces her otherness and wears it like a badge on her sleeve just only makes you warm to her more . Thankyou for sharing your amazing talent with us Alison and we look forward to hearing the other 38 podcasts with baited breath and when new music arrives we will rejoice and sing along in awe of your poetic lyrics and how you somehow manage to write down and sing a feeling so profound and deep that it’s just as if you reached into our hearts and pulled on its strings and moved us to tears so effortlessly that it’s as if you already know us and how we feel. Keep well Alison MBE ( oh yes never was an award from the Palace better deserved) and Thankyou for sharing your beautiful voice with us xx 😘
