This was one of my very early songs. Pam was a colleague at my first job and we went out together for what I now seem to recall was for a year or more, but in truth was probably for no more than a 2 or 3 months.
Anyway my younger self was quite besotted with this pretty girlfriend, the more so because she was 4 years older than me which kind of made me feel that I’d ‘arrived’!
As well as writing “Pam”, I also started writing a second song for her, but this lay uncompleted and gathering dust (I think the relationship must have ended!) for a few years.
This second song eventually turned into “SnowAngel”, with the first 2 verses relating to Pam, and a party that she and I went to all those years before. Happy days…
