from the road 2

Spotted this live video clip on Twitter and had to share it - "Magne conducting the Living Daylights choir at the a-ha gig in Cork" click here

And there it is, more definitive proof that I've been pining for the most crushworthy member of a-ha all these years ;-) Seriously adorable.

Sadly, 'This Is Our Home' is no longer in the set list, but I am glad at least some receptive people got to hear it live. With so many shows ahead of them still, it's possible the set list will change again, but probably not by more than one song at a time, and probably not often. I think though that people like to know what to expect, and I am not one of the people who think the band owe it to those who see more than one show to change the set list - the majority of people will only see one show, to change what they play on an ongoing basis just to please the few doesn't make sense to me.

By the way, I recently saw a music blog post on another site that was one in a series about favorite lines of lyrics, and it got me thinking about some older songs in new ways. I have at least 2 or 3 blogs about 'Illuminate The Sky' in mind as a result, hopefully I will have time to get them written soon.
