Thoroughly enjoyed your Easter choices, Pasqual. Solomon sang has such a delightful background melody, enchanting :)I don't usually look at the videos while I listen to your songs, many times they don't even have a video. However when I sneaked a peek at this last one...let's say I hope there is more to a Louisiana Sunday afternoon than a high-way full of cars haha ;)Hope you're having a happy Easter.
Ms Mood: Having a wonderful Easter, and a whole day off tomorrow, too. I'd planned to drop Dianne Schuur's version of Looziana into Muravia, but that vid was embedding-disabled (greedy bastards!). I like this other version, but I do believe that highway is in southern California. I'm waiting for SoCal girl Teresa to confirm. Ain't no mountains anywheres in Looziana . . . CW's New Moon Daughter CD is still my favorite of hers.
Hi Murat,Good thing I read the comments before heading back to my translation work, or I would have missed the fact that I had to confirm that the third video is indeed Highway 91 heading east out of Orange County to Riverside, California. It was weird because before I saw the sign when it was just walls and palm trees, I was thinking that the pothole at the side of the road looked familiar. It does. Right out of my stomping grounds...Great music to translate poetry by.
Teresa: Thanks for the confirmation. I had a hunch when I saw the exit sign with Anaheim Boulevard. Potholes alone would not have made the confirmation for me - Looziana's full of them (though, as I say, they ain't no mountains). I did not know the singer until I found this vid; seems she's from Chula Vista.
chula vista is down by the border not far from where the big earthquake was yesterday. She's up pretty far north...
Teresa: Heading for Disneyland, perhaps? Or maybe she's just got a thing for your potholes.
