Oh relief, my flighty friend.

Very happy to announce that my friend, relief, has once again made herself present in my life. She came sweeping in today as I finished my last exam. I’m sure she’ll vanish again soon enough but I’m going to certainly enjoy our time together while she sticks around.

Musical Trivia

Posted on Jul 31, 2013 | 7 comments

What do Belgians know about Americans? Well… if you watch Belgian TV you might think it’s only The Simpsons (another post about the Belgian addiction to The Simpsons here), Swamp People, and country music. Needless to say I’m doing my best to change the stereotype. Anyway, I saw this artist performing this song on Belgian TV the other day and just had to laugh. I immediately recognized the music to this song and it took me straight back to my childhood when my sister and I used to play our tapes in our boombox and dance and sing on the picnic table. Can you tell which country song this is?

Last night something came across TV that sparked a 30 minute lesson in classic Belgian music. It led to my first introduction to the Belgian artist, Jacques Brel and his music; which seems more like poetry than anything else. Perhaps some of you know him and his music, perhaps some of you don’t, but I think on a Monday we can all enjoy a little music.
