Those of you who have been reading for a while may remember that EPI belongs to a listening club, and every year that listening club throws a gala dinner to which the wives are invited. It’s a grand affair, and one of the stipulations is that everyone must choose a song – according to a predetermined theme – that they want to share with the rest of the people at the dinner. The songs are then burned onto a CD that we all get to keep when the dinner is over.
In the last couple of years I’ve asked you, dear readers, to help me pick a song. [The first time here, the second here.] I’ve loved hearing all your recommendations and even if I don’t necessarily pick one of the songs it’s always great to get suggestions for new music.
This year’s theme is “a song that lightens your mood” — and now, as before, I would love to have your suggestions.
And so, without further ado: What is your favourite song that lightens your mood?
[Pls to deposit suggestions in comment box, not on Facebook or Twitter. Ta!]
It is the First Day of Summer here in Iceland, according to the Auld Icelandic calendar. It’s a public holiday, in keeping with the significance throughout the centuries of winter being Officially Over. On this day, we all wish each other a Happy Summer and hope that winter and summer “freeze together” during the night [i.e. that there is frost] because that is thought to bode well for the summer.
Gleðilegt sumar, everyone!
