You had to select a song of the 60s and explain the reasons for your choice.

This is Jacques's choice:

 

Lady in Black - Uriah Heep

 

Lady in Black is a song by the rock band Uriah Heep. It is the fourth track of their 1971 album: Salisbury.

The song is credited to Ken Hensley. It tells the story of a man wandering through war-torn darkness and encountering a goddess-like entity who consoles him. It is often praised, by fans and critics alike, as Hensley's most poetic work to date.

Uriah Heep is one of those songs which has touched me really deeply and which remains latched to my soul in a never ending time span.

This song was so powerful that I literally started crying the first time I heard it. For me, it appears as a perfect picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the confidence which we should all have in Her.

While remaining a sad song, it encourages us to trust  our God and remember that there will always be someone to care upon us mortals and help us in our times of need.”
