This week sees the first of our two entries from Trust and is the third appearance in the Best Alfie Boe song top ten for Forever Young:
This was of course Alfie’s appearance at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance in 2013 – introduced by presenter Huw Edwards as a “great friend of the festival”, Alfie has appeared numerous times, including last year with Michael Ball.
Forever Young first appeared in the top ten in 2015 at number nine, slipped back to number ten last year and now records it’s highest position – perhaps it will be even higher next year?
Alfie loves the writer of this song, Bob Dylan, but regular readers will know that he does absolutely nothing for me – I’m a lost cause I think! It’s not the song, it’s the voice, so here is a version I liked more:
Yet another song I have had the pleasure of discovering thanks to Alfie – my musical education has gone in some unexpected directions in the last five years!

Not a favourite of mine but I was privileged to be at the RAH that night and was incredibly
moved by the whole thing.
Thanks Jane xx
