Throwback Thursday: paint it black

“I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black”

written by Keith Richards / Mick Jagger

Some time ago, I heard some familiar-sounding tunes coming from my daughter’s room. Although I knew the lyrics, it sounded a bit different. It was much faster and the voice a lot higher than I had it in my mind. Surprisingly, she runs it over and over again. So, I went over to her and asked her, if she would know, how old that song is. She started guessing with 10 years than 20. before she gave up.

It’s from 1966!!! So it’s more than 50 years old!!!!

OK, she was listening to the Nightcore version of the Chiara cover which was used for the movie “The last witch hunter”. The Chiara version certainly is way younger. But, I had asked for the ‘original’ version.

In case you want to refresh your memories, I’d recommend to check out also the Chiara album version. This cover is quite good in my opinion as it transports the song from the 1960s to our current time without throwing it into the blender first. The Australian choreographer Anne Murray produced a great dance video to the song. It’s also available on Youtube.

Take care!

Happy New Year

When standing on the beach and watching the waves rolling in you can every now and then find things. In the surf, you can find stones, shells, algae or other sea plants and even human waste. At the same time, the surf washes away footprints or any other mark in the sand. Heavier waves are able to form the beach and even the coastline anew. This happens usually during the winter storms.

Today, a new year started. A new year comes to us just like the waves on the ocean. Some waves are small, others are bigger and some even might be shaking the foundations of life. You won’t know in advance what the year will bring to your life. You also won’t know in advance, what it will take from you. But, you have to take it and you have to cope with the changes.

So, I wish you a happy new year and may a gentle warm wind strengthen your back and dry up the tears remaining from the past year.

Take care!
