tunes : kings of convenience
Hi All -
Black Eiffel had a beautiful post this week about ballerinas and it reminded me of the graceful Lladro porcelain figurine my Mom gave to me in college. When I was a kid, my best friend took all types of dance classes and was always in a recital. I wanted to join in, but was taking Flute lessons at the time and Mom couldn't afford the dance classes, too. Finally, when I got to college, I was able to live my dream and take ballet, modern, etc. three times a week. I don't think I was ever graceful, but it was fun and great exercise.
Now, the last couple of weeks have been particularly stressful with the financial meltdowns, and I've been listening to far too much NPR. I think this week's musical choice will provide a perfect respite from all the commotion - Kings of Convenience. I might be late to the party on this band from Norway, but better late than never. If you like Simon & Garfunkel, you will love these guys. I downloaded the album Riot On An Empty Street from iTunes and it included two songs featuring Feist - Know-How' and' The Build Up. This video for I'd Rather Dance With You is adorable and brings it all back to ballet.
Enjoy your weekend - get into the swing!
