Love Is In Da Blog 2022: Day 2

Bee is our hostess for the Love Is In Da Blog musical challenge.
Today she asks us to chose a Love Song For Our Home.

Hands up anyone who remembers Peters and Lee, winners of Opportunity Knocks in the 70s.

Welcome Home” is a song made popular by Peters and Lee.

Originally written by Jean Alphonse Dupre and Stanislas Beldone in French and translated into English by Bryan Blackburn, the record was produced by Johnny Franz. Coming after their success in the talent show Opportunity Knocks, Peters and Lee recorded “Welcome Home”, which became the duo’s only number one single in the UK Singles Chart, spending a week at the top in July 1973. It went on to sell over 800,000 copies in the UK.

The song received minor US crossover, appearing on Billboard’s Bubbling Under The Hot 100, Country charts, and most notably on the Easy Listening chart, where it peaked at number twenty-six.[2]

The song was used in an advertising campaign by Walkers Crisps when Gary Lineker returned to the UK after playing abroad.

Why have I chosen this?  It’s a gentle ballad and we like to think our home is welcoming.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
