day 03 – a song that makes me happy

A lot of songs make me happy. This is one of my recent favorites.
I listened to this song over and over again for a period last fall.
It makes me happy.

day 02 – my least favorite song

ok, this hardly counts as a song. It’s just a strange strange thing. From the Beatles’ White Album and the song I always skip.
It freaks me out.
I have to admit that I’ve never actually listened to the whole thing, probably just the first two minutes or so. So maybe it gets great after that. I wouldn’t know!

Day 01 – favorite song

Do I have to mention how hard it is to name just one song?
Well, anyway. This is Svavar Knútur performing Draumalandið, an old Icelandic song.  The song starts around 1:00.

It is a melancholic song about summer, birds, flowers and love and it somehow makes me homesick – when I’m at home.

FM Belfast

Most of the people who stumble on this pathetic little blog are FM Belfast fans. I find that amusing.
Yes, the most frequent search term is “we come from a place where we count the days”. Which is a line from a “FM Belfast” song. I used it as a blog title once upon a time.
The song is called Underwear and here it is:

A fun fun song!

P.S. I am writing this while I make my students do grammar exercises.

SCORE!

Just got asked out on a date.
By a 7 year old.
We’re going out for dinner and then back to my place. He said he would bring his Despicable Me DVD.
