Hymn to 456 Berea Street
It’s the last day of 2006, and I’ll end the year by posting something that is quite embarrassing, not only for me but also for my co-workers. You may find it silly, funny, or maybe even both.
A few months ago we spent an evening at the office, eating surströmming (fermented herring) and drinking plenty of alcoholic beverages. Swedes like to sing drinking songs during crayfish parties and while eating fermented herring, and this evening was no exception.
After a couple of hours of eating, drinking, and singing, somebody started singing “456 Berea Street” instead of the normal lyrics for one of the drinking songs we’d been singing. Somebody else came up with the idea of recording it, and in my state of intoxication I foolishly promised that I would post the song here. It took a while, but here it is: Hymn to 456 Berea Street (MP3, 808 KB).
I’m not one for singing, so while this was going on I was silently standing a few meters away, feeling plenty embarrassed. I’m sure you will understand why after listening to the recording.
Take this as a warning of what too much alcohol can do to your judgement.
Happy New 2007 :-).
