On This Day, 24 July 2015, Alfie Boe Sang…

Against the Tide, an original song at Leeds Millennium Square:

This is the only time we have heard this song and every time I listen to it, I love it more – Alfie is having the time of his life and revels in teaching the audience to sing it.  Alfie fans are a talented bunch of people!

To my mind, this song suits Alfie down to the ground and would have fitted perfectly on his 2013 album, Trust.  I wonder if we will ever hear this song again, either live or on a future solo album?  Please, Alfie, please!  One thing’s for sure, Alfie never does anything remotely predictable so the direction of his next solo album could be absolutely anything!

    Thanks for the memory Jane, what a night that was for sure, his very own song and then the fabulous rendition of Run! Most of us, including Alfie, were in tears by the end. xx

    I love this song too Jane. I absolutely agree with you about the content of his next album. Goodness knows what will be on it. I really hope he records Run as well as Against the Tide but I also want an opera album! Not asking for much am I?!
