Tuesday Tunes

This song is pretty out of left field for me, meaning it’s not on either the “Midnight in Paris” or “Amélie” soundtracks, and it’s not a Keane song. It’s a straight-up club song, complete with an Eastern European singer and the funkiest accordion (?) riff ever, and if we’re being honest I’ve listened to it probably 450 times in the past few months. I even bought it for the times I’m not plugged into a computer, listening to it on constant repeat on Youtube.

I don’t know what it is about this song in particular, but I’m addicted. I don’t really listen to a ton of music, especially when I’m writing, but I was working on one part of my novel a few months back that required me to get in the headspace of someone absolutely delirious and buzzing and sweaty, leaving a club on the French seaside in the middle of the night. Voila, ce chanson. Qu’est-ce que vous pensez?

  • Stop confusing me…I’m studying for 2 Spanish courses!

    When are we allowed to preview a few pages of the book? You know…as a teaser?

    • Haha, one of these days you’re going to wake up and be magically fluent! I just know it.

      And I’ve gone back and forth with wanting to post things on here. My concern, aside from blue-balling everyone for however-long-it-takes-to-finish-the-book, is that publishing things on the internet is a big gray area, and anyone could steal it and publish it as their own or appropriate sections of it and if they end up getting a real book deal, welp, there goes my writing! But of course you’ll get a chance to read it at some point! But likely on paper and in the quiet of your home. :) xo

      • I just want to read a page…..
        If Sook and Crackhead are there, there will be NO peace!

  • Aaaaaahhh noooooooooooo! I can’t believe I clicked on the link! A few years ago, Jordan and I traveled to the tiny Greek island of Kefalonia and stayed in a guest house that could give Faulty Towers a run for their money. One series of unfortunate events followed another but the most comical was being woken up by this song at all hours of the night. We have no idea where it came from but in the dead of the night or early morning we would just hear that accordion going full blast. Damn cheesy Euro pop. (I should mention that as I pressed play, I heard a wail of “NOOOOOO” from Jordan upstairs… think I might play it again to mess with him).

    • Hahahahaha, Meghan you are so funny! A) I want to hear more about your trip to Kefaionia, as Jamal is dying to go to the Greek isles, B) +10 points for a Faulty Towers reference!! That show was amazing. and C) I am honestly laughing out loud at the mental image of you guys being blasted awake by this song. It’s probably not funny to you yet, but it is hilarious as an outsider. You must hate me for posting this! ;) xoxo

  • I thought, if it can inspire someone to write a whole chapter of a novel I’d better pay attention and give this song a go! And you’re right, it’s a GREAT TUNE! :)

    • Ha, thanks Niki!! I’m glad you liked it! Just a warning though, I can’t be held responsible when you’re unconsciously humming this tune days later! ;) xo

  • That’s such a typical eurobeat dance track, the sort of thing you hear on holiday in the beachbar in the med and the sort of song you find yourself annoyingly singing to yourself for centuries after you’ve left the country!

    I like my dance music a bit more electronic. I’m currently obsessed with Disclosure. Are they big in your neck of the woods? x

    • Yes, absolutely. I’m sure I heard this in a club in Mexico more than once. It definitely has been stuck in my head for an extreme amount of time. I haven’t heard of Disclosure but that doesn’t mean they aren’t popular here! I am very limited in my musical tastes, there are whole genres of music I have no exposure to! xo

  • Well this is a flash from the past….

    • Ha, if only I’d heard of it a lot earlier! Think of how many more times I could’ve listened to it! xo
