It seems that HM is turning into my myspace. not that life is one big myspace/facebook anyway.
this afternoon i got the brilliant idea to go to HM. The HM in Namur kind of sucks compared to the 5 we have in Antwerp, all spread out over one street. But hey, an HM is an HM.
now, last time i was there they were playing Gwen Stefani's massacre of The Sound Of Music.
However, this was followed by the song that made Allisonneke's page famous among 10's of people, Hot Chip's Boy From School, and made me bust some dance moves in the Volvo while driving to Brussels.
Today, when i was expanding my sock collection in said store, I was welcomed by a song by 'I don't wanna know who,' which gave me a slight headache.
the song that followed was the song that first introduced me to the magic of Erlend Oye; Drop remixed by Cornelius and Kings of Convenience.
(grief-stricken i must report to you that i cannot find a sample of Drop online. well, most people reading this blog probably have cardboard cutout's of Erlend anyway. If you do want to hear this song i will be glad to give an Erlend Oye 101 class.)
I believe i must have had some kind of solo dance party in between the maternity section and the legging section. (for all the nasty people out there, i was heading over to the legging section. gosh.)
of course, the fact that erlend is being played in mega stores makes me very happy. i feel like i've done my officer's job well, in the Erlend-tribute facebook group.
On the other hand, this means that I have to go on a new quest for strange music no one has heard off.
Wait...why did i think of that as a negative thing??
