Earworm of the week

Author: Helen

From a most unlikely source.



Flor-de-lis
Todas As Ruas Do Amor
Composer(s) Pedro Marques, Paulo Pereira
Lyrics writer(s) Pedro Marques
Eurovision Song Contest Semi Finals from the vast Olympiyski Stadium in Moscow, Russia.
 
Let it put you in your happy place. I’ve been to a renewal of vows (for two people with the health cards stacked against one of them) and a funeral in the last month, and not a dry eye in the place for either. Emotions are raw. This song makes me tear up, but in a good way.

    I loved this as well, Helen. It also helps that the production design is so fantastic and psychedelic. I’m guessing that the title means ‘All Roads Lead to Love’. I’ve been to two funerals and a wedding this year. I know the feeling.

  • Helen says:

    Pooh, the video I chose cuts off the rather nice intro. I’ll replace it soon, but not right away as my versions of Safari and Firefox both hate embedded videos and have to be coaxed and wheedled into accepting them. (Yes, should just update!)

    If you click on the link in the first sentence Fine, you’ll find the lyrics and in the comments even the guitar chords, should you feel inclined. I’m resisting this urge as I don’t speak portugese and would probably end up singing “If you’re a meerkat, I’m your toilet seat, if you’re a road atlas I’m your benzodiazepam…”

    Accordion! Flute!

    *Sigh*

  • Fine says:

    Helen, those lyrics of yours are sensational.

  • Helen says:

    I think the original is somewhat more poetic though. 🙂

    PC, I think they’d go down a treat in small clubs in Melbourne.

  • Helen says:

    New YouTube embedded which doesn’t chop off the first part of the song. (Is that Barista on guitar? Bonus!)

  • Fine says:

    Looks suspiciously like him Helen. I’d see them if they toured.
