Fleet Foxes - Mykonos


Fleet Foxes picture 1Fleet Foxes picture 2
Have you heard about Fleet Foxes, a group from Seattle? They really are amazing. Their songs are great and the videos are beautiful. Trust me. Anyway, I would like to share to you a song which they sang during the Saturday Night Live on 17th January (if I am not mistaken - I only watched the downloaded version of it :) The song called Mykonos. Enjoy it!

The lyric:

The door slammed loud and rose up a cloud of dust on us
Footsteps follow, down through the hollow sound, torn up

And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made

How did any holes in the snow tipped pines, I find
Hatching from the seed of your thin mind, all night?

And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made

Brother you don't need to turn me away
I was waiting down at the ancient gate

You go
Wherever you go today
You go today

I remember how they took you down
As the winter turned the meadow brown

You go
Wherever you go today
You go today

When I walking brother don't you forget
It ain't often you'll ever find a friend

You go
Wherever you go today
You go today
[x8]


The song talks about a place called Mykonos. I haven't heard about it, so when I googled it out, it turns out to be a Greek island. And from the picture, it sure is beautiful!

History of Mykonos

Archaeological finds indicate that the Ionians settled on Mykonos in the early part of the 11th century BC. More recent discoveries have uncovered remnants in Ftelia beach from the Neolithic Kares tribe dating back to as far as 3000 BC.

In Greek mythology Mykonos was the location of the battle between Zeus and the Titan, and the island was named in honor of Apollo's grandson Mykons. During these ancient times, Mykonos, due to its proximity to the then highly populated island of Delos (situated about 2km away), became very important as a supply island and possibly as a getaway location for Delian citizens.


Modern Mykonos
Today, Mykonos is one of the most cosmopolitan islands in Greece, having become increasingly popular with mass tourism. It is known for its diverse and intense nightlife featured by a vast number of bars and nightclubs. Mykonos is also known for its sandy beaches.

Read more about Mykonos here. I will be having test Transport Phenomena on Tuesday, presenting a lab report on the "study of countercurrent flow and absorption in packed beds" on Thursday and submitting my technical writing titled, "Solar Energy: Potential and Challenges in Malaysia" on Friday. What a week will it be! Happy Monday everyone! Enjoy the rest of the week!
