Some songs just resonate to one.
When Kenzo passed, I tucked away each day, lit a candle, closed my eyes, and played it on my iPod. Every time we go out with Tilde, I hum the lyrics, to remember Kenzo and have him with us on our walks. Sort of.
Last week we visited Holland. A colleague noticed my humming. "Follow the sun?", he asked. "Yes," I answered, thrilled to find out he was familiar with the song, though surprised he knew a fairly unknown artist like Xavier Rudd, or maybe I assumed wrong? I was about to tell him what it meant for me in remembrance of Kenzo but he interrupted me.
"I know," he said, "from the commercial. Sun-tours or sun-web or something. A travel agency." Commercial? Travel agency? Kenzo's song raped and degraded by a commercial? I watched TV that evening and he didn't lie.
Ah well, it's still our song. It's here if you like to hear it: on soundcloud or youtube. I hope you recognize Kenzo and me in it, not a commercial. But I must give it to the travel agency, they have great taste ...
