Day 28: Today’s Writing Song

I first heard The Unguarded Moment by the Australian band The Church in 1983 (though it came out in 1981 on the debut album). An underappreciated song, it didn’t play often on the radio. When I finally heard it in the car one day while pulling into the driveway, I rolled up the windows on a 30ºC-plus, humid Ontario day with the car parked in baking sunshine, and cranked the bad-quality radio.

Thankfully, I knew the name of the band and song, but it took me over two and a half decades to track down. I found this ancient video on YouTube. The original upload was deleted, but this video (that I just found) seems to be the same version of the song that I saw many years ago. We’ve come a long way with technology, so don’t be too hard on the quality. This song means a lot to me. I particularly like the vocal harmony–and the accent, of course!

When The Unguarded Moment became available on iTunes, I bought it. There is no agony greater than the need for a song you can’t find!

    I hate when there’s a song I can’t find. When even typing in the lyrics gets Google to come back with “I’ve got nothing…”

    Glad you found a song you enjoy.
