This track sort of happened after I heard an audio interview with a hundred year old woman called Rosina Florever talking about her life on WFMU. Inspired by her story
I went in search of as soundtrack for her life…
It features “Svefn-g-englar” (Sleepwalkers) by Sigur Ros, as featured on the soundtrack of Vanilla Sky. It also features the ethereal warbling of Liz Frazer’s from Cocteau Twins covering Tim Buckley’s “Song to the Siren” from It’ll End In Tears, by This Mortal Coil. This Mortal Coil was a musical project of Ivo Watts-Russell, founder of 4AD.
Note: This version of “Song to the Siren” inspired David Lynch to first work with Angelo Badalamenti & write “Mysteries of Love” together.

“To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you’re getting this down.”
– Woody Allen
