Story of a Love in Ten Objects

This song came about from an exercise some friends and I decided to set ourselves one weekend – to pick a book from the table and write a song based on it in 30 minutes. My book was 'A History of the World in 100 Objects'. So here's 'Story of a Love in Ten Objects'. It's not specially written for the challenge, in fact it's on my last album but I hope it still qualifies for the competition. This is a lyric video, where I'm singing to the backing track from the album version.


  1. I enjoyed listening to this so much, Norman. You cleverly weave the mundane with deeper emotions & threads.
    The “walking backwards into tomorrow” line is a light but beautiful touch. A very special song.
