A beautiful, sad song. The title is so appropriate: I read last night that entire villages of people on the Fiji Islands have to abandon their islands and find new homes because of flooding like they’ve never had before. Will they be able to find new homes? It’s not a hoax.
I always associate this piece with slightly depressing, boring ‘70s days, but it’s a beautiful piece of music. And the image of Satie is wonderful. This jazz version sounds great, and I like that birthday challenge idea!
