The roaring tide

My favourite movie of all time remains the one and only Born Free. Watching the story of Elsa as a little girl created in me a deep and abiding love for animals and nature.

Every single time I listen to the original song, tears spring to my eyes even as a smile will touch my lips, as the memories of all the animals I have rescued and loved come rushing out.

Here is a modern version created by the Born Free Foundation. It lacks the soufulness of the original, though May's guitar work is as resplendant as always. And the magic of the lyrics with their promise of freedom, no matter what, is perennial.

You're free as the roaring there's no need to hide.....
