The lonely sneakers

Sunday, 8.5.2022 3:20 am. Straubing, near the Café sorgenfrei.

the lonely sneakers, die einsamen sneaker

On the street, two lonely sneakers lie in the entrance of a store. How did these sneakers get there?

Variant number 1: who am I, what am I doing here? And why I’m wearing sneaker?

The owner of these sneakers was out in Straubing that evening, looked deep into his beer glass and found himself in the entrance of this store sometime during the night, probably in a rather deranged state. After staring at my car for half an hour, completely lost, he asked himself: who am I, what am I doing here? And then: why am I still wearing shoes? After another 30 minutes, in order to avoid the answer to this question, the owner decided to simply take off his shoes. He then walked home in socks.

Variant number 2: I danced the whole evening in the sorgenfrei, now my feet are hurting. F***ing sneakers.

The owner of these sneakers partied with me at sorgenfrei. After almost 3 hours of dancing, her feet hurt so much that she took off her shoes in indignation. Her friends were already waiting in the car and asked her to finally get in to go home. So she got in. Completely dismayed, the friends then asked: don’t you want to take your shoes with you? To which she replied: if my feet hurt like this when I dance, then my shoes and I will now go our separate ways.

I could now think of several variations, one of which would probably be more blatant than the other. And that’s why I’ll stop thinking about any nonsense now. But the fact is, when I got into my car at this hour, I was really happy. Why? 1. finally DJing again, without mask, without distance. 2. the dance floor was full. 3. the guests celebrated more enthusiastically than they had in a long time. A successful weekend, 10 out of 10 points.

Track/Album Highlights # 18: ABC – Absolutely.

Track/Album Highlight: ABC - Absolutely.

What fits musically best with war, inflation and the end of the world? The Requiem by Mozart (https://youtu.be/SxZtU4tjM7Q) would fit perfectly at first glance. But – if I have learned anything in my life – sometimes you should do the opposite of what you have in mind. In this case: don’t listen to something sad, this could only deepen the end time mood. No, something uplifting would be much better in my opinion. Here is the musical highlight: ABC, Absolutely.

Have fun listening:

Track/Album Highlights # 17: Bee Gees – Saturday Night Fever.

Track/Album Highlights # 17: Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever.

What exciting times we had ( details will not be shared). However, I have to admit that I was never a self-confessed disco fan when I was young. It didn’t fit the image I wanted to communicate to the public at that time. Electronic music, non-conformism, etc. was more in vogue back then. But now I don’t really care, the music is really good and by now you can find really great re-mixes of the old hits. And I play them with enthusiasm. A short time ago a good friend sent me – as a really successful surprise – this album as a present. Dear Thomas, thank you very very much.

Have fun listening to the track/album highlight of the week:
