And now, lets talk about something else...

So, now I have had 24 hours of calm and it's been lovely. I've been able to think about some other things...

Much to the dismay of Sd, I love to watch 'So You Think You Can Dance' every Friday night. I know it is American and cheesy BUT the dancers are amazing and another good thing about the show is that some of the choreographers have very interesting taste in music. Especially the contemporary choreographers. One of those people is Mia Michaels. She is not a particularly likeable lady but her music choices are great. As is her choreography. Last week, she chose a piece of music 'Koop Island Blues' from a Swedish duo called Koop who are primarily an electronic music act but they usually use samples and vocalists with a jazz background. I loved it, and yesterday downloaded two albums from I-Tunes. It's kind of loungy, cocktaily music. A little bit 'Cafe Del Mar' I guess. Maybe a bit quirkier than that...very relaxing...but not boring.
I will add a few of their songs to my playlist so you can listen.

Hope you like!


ps. I know music on blogs can be a bit annoying, that's why I have tried to put the pause button in a spot where you don't have to scroll down too far to find it! The music is really there for my own enjoyment but it would be lovely if you liked it too!

I love the music on your blog, you have awesome taste in music! Mia Michaels is my fav choreographer, she is so innovative. I am always a bit breathless watching a performance of her work.

p.s. I promise I am not stalking you, I just always have something to respond to your posts ;)
