    • Cu mare placere, Adi. Eu l-am revazut de curand, dar imi aduc aminte de cantece de cand eram de-o schioapa: Atmosfera de totala inocenta a fost o constatare care a urmat numai dupa doua sau trei zile, cand l-am revazut prin acea noua prizma: a inocentei, a unei lumi, care era mult mai simpla, si mai curata, poate ca urmare a razboiului de curind trecut…Desigur, nu acasa, acolo razboiul a continuat cu atrcitatile comunismului.
      Multumesc de comentariu,

    • Indeed Valerie, I remember those tunes played on the radio well before owning a TV set. Great Musical, devine music, and with such a message of hope! A beautiful love story, even though quite improbable, except in one’s mind, which makes it even a more appealing allegory, I’d say…
      THanks for commenting, and sharing your feelings! I love it when I know I’n not the only one left in the entire world valuing their youth memories…With a straight face, even though a bit nostalgic….

      Always good chatting with you!

      Cheers,

      George.
