Erin Ponsonby ” Love Like The Movies” – Listen

Erin Ponsonby is, unfortunately, about to be sadly disappointed.  On this new song from the Scottish pop-folk singer’s EP ‘Little Town‘ there’s a recipe for disaster.  All Erin Ponsoby wants is “love at first sight” for a man who will “bring me flowers and run in the pouring rain / ‘cos the thought of losing me will drive me insane.”  She really doesn’t want much – just love exactly the way that it is portrayed in the movies.

She’s not completely deluded – “I realise that it is just in my head” – but, even so she’s still going to cling to that fantasy.   At least though the daydream is set to a finger-snapping and upbeat soundtrack.  Dream on, Erin Ponsonby.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
