Lustina Croitoru On:

39′ by Radu Paraschivescu

It’s hard to find the song that you care most about – one out of a hundred. Making a choice, you commit ninety-nine injustices. And not only that. The habit to categorize and rank your favorite music and musicians is likely to stir a craze: ballet and rock, ballads and jazz, progressive music and Romanian hits from the ‘70s,  Leonard Cohen and Céline Dion, Roger Waters and Lady Gaga, Brian May and Paul McCartney, Tchaikovsky and Sphinx, Bijelo Dugme and Jens Lekman. This story is just an invitation to humor and tenderness, and a descent in time and nostalgia.
