Around the World in 80 Songs

Song 2: “God’s Child” – David Byrne and Selena

This is what I remember about Montréal: Spring Break 2001, drinking Turkish coffee (by way of Beirut) at Salam’s flat. Later drinking Porto at the bar. Walking in the snow to photograph a statue of an angel. Ordering lattes in French. Sitting on a bed looking at old photographs of a 6'4" Lebanese boy and his refugee family. Laughter about emailed photographs of a cow slowly loading on an outdated computer in Ukraine. If only I could have produced Björk wearing a cowboy hat with the reticulated patterns of a giraffe, then we would still be friends today.
