The Monday travel song: Dans les brouillards de Londres by Thierry Hazard

I propose to start every new week with a song that takes us somewhere in the world.

Today I’ve selected a song that takes us where I have been hanging out almost all day: in the fog of London!

Yes it’s autumn, this season I hate, and the weather is terribly sad in South England. Many flights were cancelled today; both my flights were “only” delayed by several hours each, so I have spent many hours in Gatwick airport, stranded as many other fellow passengers. My return tomorrow is cancelled, so I expect more airport fun to come!

And of course, this reminds me of this old French song from the eighties, Dans les brouillards de Londres (which literally means In the fogs of London). A good eighties entertainment and a few minutes are already over – just a few hours to wait now 😉

In airports or elsewhere, have a great week!

This post is part of a weekly event called The Monday Travel song. You can participate, too, by doing the following:

  • Create your own post every Monday and title it The Monday travel song: xxx by xxx
  • Include a link to a song (YouTube link or other)
  • It must be a song which is linked to a geography. For example, a Russian song, a Chinese song, a Scottish song… (it can be from your own country every now and then, but remember the purpose is to get others to virtually travel!)
  • Your post doesn’t have to be long, but do tell us a little bit about the song… for example by telling about the lyrics, about the composer, about the style…
  • Include a link to my own Monday travel song in your post tag it “Monday-travel-song” so others can find it too
