Adem - Warning Call (2006)
Whenever I hear this track (which I really like) it takes me to the Standard Hotel on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. It was my husband and my first holiday together which was pretty amazing – not least because we were still in the early stages of our relationship and all loved up (we’re still loved up but I didn’t nag as much back then!) but also because we spent the first part in Hawaii visiting O’ahu and Maui (surfing on Waikiki beach and swimming with turtles) and spent the last part of our holiday in LA so that we could go to the wedding of one of the members of Lostprophets ….. very rock and roll. And very rock and roll was what I first felt when we arrived at the Standard hotel (my husband’s choice) – I was surprised by the long line of people queuing up to get in to our hotel and all dressed for a night out – thankfully, the hotel staff came out to greet us and ushered us past the queue and steered us to the reception – I think my shorts, T-shirt and flip flops told them I wasn’t bound for the queue – which it turned out was to get in to the nightclub situated within the hotel. The reception was also a rather bizarre experience – with a clear Perspex box on the wall behind reception which had a young lady (a real live person!) sitting in it reading a book and dressed for bed I seem to recall (sfw can probably recall more accurately!).
