Chris De Burgh - Lady In Red
It was 1988 that this song came to mean something to me. It was the summer before my senior year of high school, and my boyfriend was headed to boot camp. With promises of love and letters between us, he'd declared this "our song," having a video version made with dreamy sequences of me in a red blouse with a red bow in my hair as he sang his out-of-tune heart out.
On our last night together, he was taking me to dinner. My dad took me shopping and bought me my first beautiful deep rose red dress. I felt so grown up.
There've been many men since then, many dresses, many songs. None have ever made me feel so lovely as I did that night. I was his Lady In Red.
