The Songs That Remind You 3

It's been a few weeks, and here are a couple of new songs that will remind me of my time in Aberdeen... Sort of.

One of the songs I've heard on Original 106 is "I Will Wait" by Mumford & Sons.

Kind of a neat song, don't you think? When I was talking with Gray 3, he mentioned that when the band came to Orkney, they didn't want to play in a sports arena, so they played in St. Magnus Cathedral. That's about the fourth item on my list of upcoming posts from my trip to Orkney, so when it gets posted, I'll cross-link this post with that post so everyone can see how cool that would have been to see. Rumor has it that Mumford & Sons will be playing some dates in the United Kingdom later this year, and although I don't plan to go to the show, it might wind up being an opportunity to go hang out with sweetthesound before doing some What's Your Grid? work.

The other song, which also has an Orkney connection (at least as far as your intrepid blogger is concerned) is "Dance With Me Tonight" by Olly Murs. I'm not usually one for upbeat music, and I'm not much of a dancer, but this song is really fun, and I heard it right outside Finstown.

I'll keep 'em coming as I keep hearing 'em. Until then, enjoy.


  1. Mumford & Sons is a great band, and I especially enjoy this cut. Illumineers and The Avett Brothers are all on the same wave, are you saying, if these groups were played frequently in the UK then you would listen to them???
