From the recording The Full Spectrum
A jangly pop jaunt through one of the most volatile flashpoints in any relationship -- navigating whilst driving!
My wife Juliet and I get on famously (which is why we are married in the first place!) and rarely fight.
But on two recent holidays -- one driving up the Oban coast in Scotland and one in the Ardeche, in the south of France -- we found ourselves *politely* disagreeing...on which direction to take!
As the song says, Juliet is "analogue", preferring paper maps and her natural sense of direction; whereas I am definitely "digital", relying on GPS and satellite positioning systems.
But rather than focus on the negative (our silly fights about directions) I wanted to pivot these episodes into a positive realisation:
"...If Juliet v Satellites costs us twenty minutes time
What's that compared to the love we share
For our entire lives?
If Juliet v Satellites is the worst fight of our lives
Then I think we'll be alright
We'll be just fine...".
If a silly squabble about left versus right is our biggest issue, then we're probably in a very good place together, generally!
So...this is ultimately a love song. I hope you like it. More to the point, I hope Juliet does! :-)
