My hopefully-not-so-bloody Valentine

Yes, you know it, it is this time of the year. Flowers get really expensive and so does going to the restaurant for a meal - especially that table for two near the window, and it is all pink and big hearts around us... Valentine's Day is coming and I am not a big fan ...

But as every other couple around the world, M and I will be celebrating Valentine's Day - only because it will give us a break from painting the house and any excuse will do (- at this rate we will never finish the house). However we will celebrate at home, and to cheer up M who is depressed at the idea of hearing every single conversation of our neighbours, I tried to compose his very own CD - L'esprit des voisins (the French for 'the spirit of the neighbours')

Here are some of titles to feature - a very eclectic mix:

Belle & Sebastian - Like Dylan in the Movies (the best B&S song)
Noah and the Whale (love the name) - 5 years time
Rumer - Slow
Mumford and Sons - The Cave (not so easy listening, but love the sound)
Beautiful South - Song for Whoever (classic)
Little Comets - One Night in October (watch the version where they share one guitar - genius!)
Lykke Li - I'm Good, I'm Gone (A bit weird, but in a very good way)
Neutral Milk Hotel - In the aeroplane over the sea
Adele - Rolling in the deep (you have to listent to this - it is brilliant)

What do you think? Any other titles you can think of for easy listening. I do realise there are no French title (not even in the more comprehensive list) - donc je suis ouverte a toutes autres suggestions venant de mon pays natal...

I am working on the CD cover tonight... Hopefully I will be able to show you some possible covers tomorrow.

  1. That is a sweet collection of songs, without being overly saccharine the way Valentine's CDs usually are.

    Je suis desolee, mais je ne sais pas des chanson francais :(


Thanks for leaving a comment, I love reading them. I usually reply to comments, unless you are a nonreply- blogger.
