    There are many great songs about my city, Portland, Oregon. Here's one from not-as-well-known-as-he-deserves-to-be folk songwriter, Michael Hurley.

    -Ralf Youtz

    My videos are here.

    The future is unwritten.

    Up to date with 75 songs on the playlist, I better add a song myself.

    Here is an old danish movie tune for you, written by Bent Fabric who has written the scores for a lot of scandinavian movies.
    Its in danish, so if you can't hear what I am singing, thats probably why...

    Ahoy and I hope that I am not too late - I have had quite a busy week.
    I recorded 'Grace Kelly Blues' by the band Eels which is a song about wandering through the streets of Paris (though the name of the city is only mentioned once, Mr.E (the artist) has said that he wrote this song while wandering through the streets of Paris while wondering what lay behind the smiles of the people he passed by.
    Anywho - here it is

    I believe that this Season has ended now!
    I will add the two last songs after work and make a wrap-up later.

    Greetings,

    I know it was a great week but sorry to say I missed most (ok all) of the vids. Family stuff and Thanksgiving and all. Thanks for hosting!

    Ciao

    Default Wrap up

    Sorry for the late wrap up. Busy week.

    So, 78 songs! All winners, but no prizes :-/
    Here is not going to be a video, just a map and a list.

    I tried to map the cities:

    Seasons of Towns.jpg

    The map is rather small, so the marks sometimes cover more than one town. In the UK most marks cover even more than two towns.

    I listed the towns below. I tried to sort them by continent, but lost all the work to the browser reloading. Here they go:

    Sydney
    Decatur
    London x 9
    Leith
    New York x 2
    Nashwille
    Salford
    Durham
