So I finished mixing this little tune - Amsterdam (recorded and written in Berlin - click on the link and spread it around). I thought this picture was appropriate (that's me in the hat above). My facial expression matches the main theme of the song - namely of wanting something (someone) you can't have - never mind the reasons.
Consequently, in this photograph, my older brother (the bored-looking lad with the Star Trek Tee) was obviously too cool to let me play with him and his friend. I was annoyed. Clearly. Hat and all...
But I actually started writing this tune in the Amsterdam Airport over a year ago, and although this is a story of somewhat unfulfilled love, it's still happy - because at least I got to feel the magic I did. It still makes me happy thinking about it.
Anyhow - I'm off to the States shortly for Christmas with the family, and to connect with some friends. More to blog later. For now enjoy this song and spread it around! :)
