Crimson and Clover by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

Sometimes what you need most is a cover song. Though I have to admit, back in 1981 I had no idea that Joan Jett's "Crimson and Clover" was someone else's song first. For me, it was her song that would also become my song, as favorite songs often do. I'd listen to "Crimson and Clover" while lying on my bedroom floor next to my stereo. The song would finish and I'd lift the needle up, return it to the start of the song, and listen to it again ("over and over").

And love, love, love is only heaven away

Happy October 1st and happy October themed writing. This one is part of a project I'm contemplating - a collection of Flash Fiction stories about women and girls. This one is inspired by both The Psychedelic Furs song "The Ghost In You", and the stunning piece entitled "Atropa Belladonna" by one of my favorite artists, Sarah Joncas.
