She obviously hadn't read the album cover very well, because she sounded surprised and said she had always thought it was "Spanish Moths"!
My mum is often surprised like that herself. We'll be setting in the kitchen listening to the radio & she'll have to ask me just what a particular artist is saying.
Talk to me, run to me, whisper my name
