    The Songs of Beauty

    It’s time for another hit list from Camp WT. I gotta keep myself busy somehow during those long cycling days – and I’m happy to share.

    This list counts songs that made the world stop, that haunted me for days, weeks, months and that will always be with me, songs that gave me sleepless nights and goose skin, song that made me start dreaming & longing, songs that moved me one way or another…

      hej faetter, du mangler – U2: love is blindness.
      Som jo lyder bedst når man er stang stiv. og vaelter rundt paa gulvet i gangen på vejrøvænget..

    2. Fjumse Says:

      Hahahaha….Åh, fætter T, du får mig virkelig til at grine, smile og mindes! Tak for det…

      Du har ret, Love Is Blindness burde være på listen. Måske glemte jeg den netop pga. alkoholens indvirkning hjemme på Vejrøvænget!

      Håber alt vel med dig, familien og humøret…

      Kærligst, Nicolai

      yeah ure really right, i have a nice small spring in my step when i listen to good music :) and later on, listening to the same songs bring me back to the moment when i was in some random part of the world listening to the same tune.

      the boat pics looked a bit rough, take care..

    4. Morten Says:

      Hvor blev Wilco af?
      Nu du nævner “Over the Rhine” vil jeg komme med en anbefaling: “The Innocence Misison”.

    5. Fjumse Says:

      Hej Morten…

      Wilco løb sin vej!

      Anbefalingen er modtaget. Måske gemmer den sig endda på iPod’en.

      Hi Hui Ling…

      Good to hear from you.

      Yeah, that’s one of the beauties of music, that it coorporates very well with the centre of memory and brings all sorts of pieces from the past to the surface.

      Nicolai

      PS. You always have a nice and happy spring in your shoes, HL! Music or not… :-)
