周末任你點 - 《執迷不悔》

早兩日,聰叔叔説要去外遊,目的地是冰島,這讓阿靚姐只想到兩樣野。

第一樣野:冰島歌手 Björk。

不少人認識 Björk 皆因她—王菲。她當年的一個菠蘿釘髪型被評為抄襲冰島 Björk,間接令香港人認識到冰島有個叫 Björk 的女歌手。甚至有人覺得王菲的唱歌風格也跟她很像,但其實王菲從來沒有 cover 過 Björk的歌。

《執迷不悔》
作曲:袁惟仁
作詞:王靖雯

這一次我執著面對 任性地沉醉
我並不在乎 這是錯還是對
就算是深陷 我不顧一切
就算是執迷 我也執迷不悔

別説我應該放棄 應該睜開眼 33 more words

ARCHIVE: Ep 2- Flóki young malt

The second episode of the podcast saw Andy & Stu embrace the dramatic landscapes and violent volcanos of Iceland, by trying a dram of Iceland’s only (we think!) malt whisky, and listening to some Icelandic music (though thankfully more of the contemporary stuff than the traditional music!). 254 more words
