it's been a while.
I'm sitting listening to my long lost favorite elevator tune from vietnam. I used to hear it at the french chicken place in saigon and my favorite veggie chicken place in hanoi as well as the occasional massage parlor. it's like finding a long lost friend... such a bittersweet melody. uplifting melancholy. apparently it's a french song which is why I had such a hard time locating it on google. it's eluded me for 2 years. I stopped at the union square subway once thinking this guy on a flute was playing it, but it wasn't. l'amour est bleu. love is blue. a 1967 fourth runner up song in the eurovision contest. (I wikipediaed it). it only became a no.1 hit in japan and canada of all places. 1967. 67 weeks since I've updated this blog. huh. and I found it again all thanks to a hazy search on youtube. thank you youtube for bringing us back together again.
