Tune of the day.....

My youngest daughter wasn't feeling all that well this morning (she had a small fever), so I decided (or rather was forced) to skip work and stay at home with her instead. Now I have just returned from a lengthy walk (with a quick stop for a cup of coffee), while she was sleeping in the perambulator (yeah - it's called that!) and during my walk I was constantly humming/singing I Love The Avenue by Salem. Not exactly because the streets of my hometown could be mistaken for avenues, but simply because it's such a wonderful, majestic, grandiose and utterly gorgeous song which is simply perfect to have "running" in the back of your head, when you're walking with the wind straight in the face. And since it is Spil Dansk Dag in Denmark today, I think it's appropriate to suggest that you check out the band's recent release called Nord1, which contains 12 tracks all sung in Danish (the album is wonderful, but probably requires some knowledge on Danish/Scandinavian music traditions? I mean - how many of you are familiar with Kai Normann Andersen, Evert Taube or Svante?).

I've been doing my bit...been listening to the new Sterling album all day- for some reason I'm obsessed with Kom Nu Hjem, even though I haven't a clue what a lot of it means...a bit like most of my record collection at the moment-it seems to be in either Danish or German...
