Some people see being northern as an enormous source of pride rather than an accident of geography (I feel I can say this because I’m northern). If you are one of those Professional Northerner types (you know, like Liam Gallagher, who moved to London as soon as he had the money), Nick Drake’s Northern Sky could well be the perfect first dance song for you. Don’t worry, it’s romantic too.
I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you’re here
Brighten my northern sky.
You’ll find it on his album, Bryter Layter.
