While on the road or in the sun for four months last year, and actually even longer if i count all the many weeks travelling in between and coming back here, there were a couple of songs which i kept on listening to on repeat. Since i feel my insides longing to live in another place, with it being so cold and dark here, these tracks come back to mind and are a steady companion at all times.
One was Regina Spektors – Fidelity.
heres the audio version: fidelity_regina spektor[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/01-fidelity.mp3]
the other one was: sam-cooke-summertime . i had this song on my headphones till all of south-east-asia got tired of hearing it.[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/sam-cooke-02-summertime-pt-1.mp3]
2 old sayings comes to mind when i hear these songs:
“The cave you fear to enter, holds the treasure you seek.” & “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
