Hall of fame.

I've never been a big fan of Danish "wunderkind" artist and composer Martin Hall.
But I remember hearing his first single "Avenues of Oblivion" many years ago on Danish radio and it's one of the most beautiful things I've heard (original copies of this single fetch a nice 100-150 € in today’s used record shops!)
One of the things that makes Hall interesting today is that he has always represented a sort of pure and slightly elitist "art-for-arts-sake" approach to art which puts him completely out of the increasingly irritating discussion in Denmark about whether you belong to the left-wing or not (and if you belong to the left-wing you deserve to be banned, blacklisted and deported, mainly for threatening to ban, blacklist and deport all those sweet struggling right-wing artist back in the seventies)

Wings - you could use a pair to fly away from this entire BS.
