On The Thalys - My Playlist

I'm on the Talys (the high speed train between Paris, Belgium and the Netherlands), on my way to Amsterdam... I bought the Wallpaper city guide for the Dutch capital, from Phaidon, a publishing company that always has beautiful graphics and photographs. They list some architectural feats I hope to visit this week.

I cannot travel without my ipod, so I'm taking this opportunity to answer to Everybody Says Don't's tag, on my current Playlist. (Only 7 tracks, that's tough!)


Mixwit

Bach Cantata BWV 8 by the American Bach Soloists
Violente Femmes's Blister in the Sun
Martha Wainwright's BMFA
Sonic Youth's Superstar
Alisha Chinai's Kajra Re
Aretha Franklin's I Say a Little Prayer
Blondie's Heart of Glass

loved your playlist. Bach was perfect for my early morning wake up - also known as jetlag.

Oh, have a fantastic time in Amsterdam. I know you will. It's such a great city and you'll have lots of fun stories to share with us, I hope.

Oh, the Femmes.... it takes me back to the day in high school. Still a classic.
I love your travel photos. As a stay-at-home mom, travel (beyond the Florida panhandle) is pretty much out for me at this point, so I like to live vicariously! Keep 'em coming!

ECLECTIC - ah yes, I remeber hearing Blister in the Sun for the first time in the TV series My So-Called Life a couple of years after I left high school...

RITA O - yes, it's me when I was little!
