Last week we went to Edinburgh for a couple of nights, Edinburgh is probably the worlds best city, as it has a stonking great castle on a rugged rock, right at the centre – my mother came from Scotland, she used to say to me, “Round and Round the Rugged Rock, the Ragged Rascal Ran” – not something I actually do, since I don’t regard myself as a rascal, and neither am I ragged, but I do enjoy the Scottish accent, particularly the ability to roll the ‘R’ – mother used to say “Ogden, can you roll your R’s?” Sadly that capacity is beyond me – it seems that while I am half Scots from birth, the ability to roll R’s is apparently not genetic.
To see photos of the trip, scroll down, but first, here’s a few songs I have been thinking about at work this morning.
Fields of the Nephilim, Last Exit for the Lost
Well its goth isn’t it, so what do you expect? Course its really sombre and moody, but it is quite spiritual, and thats what I’m getting at – spiritual stuff! Impending doom! Thats what I’m talking about – yeah!
VNV Nation – Perpetual
Not sure I posted this before, but its another spiritual one, I regard it as a love song, but what else could it be about?
No need of sun to light the way
Across the ages, we have reigned as we endured
Through the storm fronts we will ever surely pass
To stand as never ending light
Psy’Avia – Face to Face
Well I thought this one is the most overtly romantic, but when I looked it up, it says its about the film Interstellar! Thats a great film, and one of my favs, but I cant imagine the singer’s motivation was that guy in the film – surely??
Oh well, back to plant earth! Edinburgh!
