    Hello everyone,

    I know this is a super serious forum, so I’ve a super serious proposal to keep our spirits up.
    @ludovan and I are going to escape from Milan (yes, like Snake Plissken, Jena for Italians) to reach our uncle’s place on the lake. My uncle, Gene, was a sound technician in the 60s and 70s, so he has an awesome vinyl record collection in addition to mine.

    Do you want to request any song? I’ll try to broadcast it here, on Radio Atlantis, solely and exclusively for you Atlanteans.

    Note for @ellie and all the other youngster out there: we only have rock music from 60s and 70s, maybe something from early 80s… And a vinyl by Davide Van De Sfroos. My brother’s gift to me. Don’t ask, please.
    So no Taylor Swift, no Justin Bieber, no rap, no country… You got that.

    One each from… Now!

    Walked out this morning
    Don’t believe what I saw
    A hundred billion bottles
    Washed up on the shore
    Seems I’m not alone at being alone
    A hundred billion casatways
    Looking for a home

    First at the finish line, V.B.! Congrats, man.

    So we have a Sting fan: do you know he was in the Quadrophenia movie, produced by The Who? He was Ace, a fighting mod at Brighton beach. Super cool… But with an awkward secret.

    Message in a bottle, I make a note right now.

    Are we keeping a theme?

    You don’t miss your water ’til the well runs dry
    But I believe so strongly in you & I
    Can’t somebody answer me the question why
    You don’t miss your water ’til the well runs dry

    Otis Redding – You Don’t Miss Your Water

    Brother, I’m impressed. Even if your request stinks of Google a mile away, I take note.
    Maybe uncle is on soul too.

    Water as a theme?
    I know what everybody is (or should) thinking.

    We ended up at the Grand Hotel
    It was empty, cold and bare
    But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
    Making our music there
    With a few red lights, a few old beds
    We made a place to sweat
    No matter what we get out of this
    I know, I know we’ll never forget

    Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky
    Smoke on the water

    Hey, it was some very heartfelt Googling.

      I know, Van, and for this reason I’m impressed.
      Luckily I also know which song you really want.

      From your friend Davide, Akuaduulza.

      Akuaduulza akuaduulza quanta acqua impienìss questi oecc
      acqua negra e senza culpa, acqua santa senza resònn
      e passa un bàtell e passa un invernu e passa una guèra e passen i pèss
      passa el veent che te ròba el mantèll e passa la nèbia che sàra soe i stèll
      pescaduu che te làsset la spunda ne la brèva che càgna i vestii
      rema in pee soe sta foeja cje dùnda cun la canzòn che te voett mai finì…

    Drat, I wanted to go for some early Waits (not rock, I know) but the water theme makes it harder on me.
    Sebastian played ‘Earth Died Screaming’ two days back, which is of course very thematic but that is from Bone Machine and thus too late. I will keep pondering ;)

      Early Waits is ok, I love his voice and uncle has… Small change, I think.

      Keep pondering however and surprise us all!
