Quick musical interlude

A bit strange, this whole thing:


Wonder where they're performing it from.
Lisa del Bo, was born Reinhilde Goossens on 9 June 1961 in Mopertingen, Belgium. She is a Belgian singer who is popular in her own country and also in Germany. Lisa del Bo is a Flemish singer who often sings in the Dutch language but has been known to record songs in other languages as well.

She represented Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 1996 with the song "Liefde is een kaartspel", where she came 16th.
There's a sort of bland Europe-ness here, about as much emotion as me waking up in the morning and crashing into walls.

  1. Europe does have a tendency towards blandness in architecture, music, art, and typefaces. I think this started mid twentieth century, post war. Before that we had some great art across the continent. I have mentioned here before my loathing of the font Helvetica, it has all the characters but is characterless. Eminently readable but devoid of any features to please the eye. There is a reason for this loss of beauty and I believe it to be an intentional assault on our souls, a hollowing out to reduce us to unimaginative and obedient serfs. But then I could be wrong, I always preferred serif faces.
