If David Bowie was Swedish. And a Girl.

23 Mar

Last night I was sitting in an office across the street from the office I should have been sitting in and boy am I happy.  Not only was it lovely, with beautiful art and big ole windows, but this wonderful event occurred:

I had made myself at home in a pretty green chair and was prattling on and on and not letting my friend get any work done.  All of a sudden, wafting in from the office next door was amazingness!  At this point in the story, we should all take a moment to thank Jason, from whose office that wafting occurred, and be glad that he was listening to this very song, because now we all are able to do so as well.  (Actually that’s the end of the story, so we kind of have to thank him at this point anyway.)

Life on Mars, as a concept, seems even more strange, more fantastic, more futuristic in Swedish than it does in English.  Maybe that’s because I don’t speak Swedish.  It’s kind of like Martian to me.

If you don’t believe me, download to Frida’s “Liv Pa Mars.”  It’s so very wonderful.  And, yes, it’s that Frida.
