hohoho,

again and again and again. if you might have thought that we are running out of cheesy, crackly, and lovely down tempo tunes from the past, you have been worrying for no reason!
throughout the entire year i was collecting, hunting and mining these tunes and even when i had to crawl into the dustiest corner of the record shop for them, i will never stop chasing beacuse our new age xmas tradition can never stop. esecially not in 2020.

look at that number, so cool looking...2020!

...and wasn´t 2020 rather special? anyhow, despite all the fun fun fun we had, lets now get a drink or something stronger which helps us looking forward to whatever happens next. yikes!

a wet kiss and forbidden hug,

torsten & nils

Thank you! Tommy Dorsey's version of Eric Coates 'By The Sleepy Lagoon' is probably my favourite, the perfect accompaniment to a glass of port on my very quiet NYE. You also can't go wrong with Chopin, which always makes me think of Mallorca - no bad thing in the depths of winter. So much perfectly-timed music this year to remind me, in a warm, fuzzy way, of my grandmother (who passed away this year), and smile at the memory of her singing along to Fauré. Danke Torsten & Nils, cheers and Happy New Year x

I've loved "Sleepy Lagoon" ever since it appeared on the soundtrack to the coming-of-age flick "Flirting." You're so right -- this version is just lovely.
