In which I mean to play some songs about spring but get a little distracted by songs about mining, choral music, fado, a lullaby. Featuring Blaze Foley, Arvo Pärt, Fairouz, Charlie Chaplin, Jewish-Viennese composer Hermann Leopoldi and more…

I called the episode ‚Life, Oh Life,‘ after the Romanian song which I play two different renditions of in this episode, but it appears a more accurate translation would be “World, World“:

World, world, sister world
When will I have enough of you?
World, sister world
When I give up bread for Lent
And the glass will give up on me
World, sister world
Maybe then I’ll have enough of you
When they hammer the nails on my coffin
World, sister world
When they put me in my grave
And I won’t be on earth anymore
World, sister world
‚Cause that’s how the world is, transient
One is born, another dies
World, sister world
The born one suffers
The dead one rots
World, sister world
