Some songs sneak up on you. They take days, weeks, months, years to reveal themselves to you. In the case of “New Lace Sleeves,” it took almost 35 years.
I literally didn’t realize how much I loved it until last week. In terms of songs from Trust, I always knew that I would post “Strict Time,” but I figured I’d go with “Clubland” or “From a Whisper to a Scream,” and while those last two are great songs, “New Lace Sleeves” is the one I realized I loved the most.
