The title of this post comes from the song “Andy” by Don McGlashan and  Harry Sinclair — otherwise known as The Front Lawn.

Everyone has songs that make them cry; silly, unreasonable tears that flow because words and music touch a chord.

“Andy” has always been one of those songs; a lament for the brother who will never be there to celebrate birthdays, weddings — any of life’s milestones. Walking on the beaches of Auckland’s North Shore — specifically referenced in the lyrics — tends to remind me of this song.
