Musical Interlude {Nina and Frederik}



Oh, dear! I completely forgot about Silver Screen Sunday, this week. To make up for it, here's some music! I found this EP (45) in an op-shop back in July, last year. I bought it for the same reason I buy many records - I thought the cover art was neat. I never expected to actually enjoy the music...but I did! There's a very brief article on wikipedia about Nina and Frederik and a little poke around youtube will provide you with quite a few songs and videos.


This song is from the EP and I really enjoy it:





And here's a cute video of them with Louis Armstrong in a Danish film.







I think Nina is absolutely gorgeous! And that I should most definitely hunt down more of their music...

Sorry for the rather poor subsitute for Silver Screen Sunday! I was out all day, yesterday, at a picnic (which was a lot of fun, by the way).

Love,
Andi B. Goode

  1. This is from Wikipedia:

    "Frederik van Pallandt settled in the Philippines in the 1990s. He joined a major Australian crime syndicate, for which he provided transportation for drug trafficking, and was shot dead with his second wife in 1994."

    Gosh!

  6. I'd never heard of them before and I wish that I had. And her yellow dress in the film clip is adorable. I just checked on the iTunes store and they had a few of their albums available over the digital ether. I love your music posts!

  8. If ever there was a popstar (or in this case, a duo) with a 'goody two shoes' image, it was Nina & Frederik. I'm absolutely stunned that Frederik got involved in drugs trafficking, then murdered as a result.

    Unbelievable.

  9. Turns out that Frederik's 'Little Donkey' was actually a drug's mule!
