In this “Music That Makes Me, Me” edition I would like to honour some family favourites. I have included songs that remind me of each of my brothers.
Happy Endings by FAUL – A favourite of my 2.5 year-younger brother, Dillon. He’s a sucker for chilled sax solos as much as I.
Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros – My 9 year-younger brother, Rowan’s favourite band, Sigur Ros, and their favourite song of mine. Translated, ‘Hoppipolla’ means ‘jumping into puddles’. It is a song about being young at heart. I absolutely adore the music video.
She may be slightly emulous when it comes to banter, but it simply highlights how loquacious she is, which is so endearing I feel we would go together like spaghetti and meatballs, or, you know, other things that are completely miscible.
I become all alacrified merely being in her presence. It is seriously impossible to be woebegone while she is around. Probably largely due to her intoxicating avidity. I get the sense she is incredibly convivial. What a coincidence – me too!
And as if all that wasn’t enough, she even has the tendency to post some magnificently mellisonant tunes on her blog. And we all know I’m a sucker for those. It is like she has tapped into all that is cool. In fact, I would not be surprised if Amb owns several pairs of spectaculacles.
