We continue our visit to Athens, cradle of civilisation. Sitting eating a mediocre, over-priced meal at a rooftop restaurant while gazing upon the Acropolis, where the western world learned what architecture is, the rarefied scene was accomoanied by an odd soundtrack of pop familiarity. John Lennon’s Jealous Guy ‘improved’ with Bontempi style stylings. Then they play a cover of Let It Be. It’s that 80s charity record, the Hillsborough one was it? I can’t remember. And then towards the end, voiceovers commending listeners to buy. Bowie, page 3 girl Suzanne Mizzi and then Timmy Mallet from TVam as he infotms us. What more of a clashing pop from the past juxtaposition with classical architectural grandeur could one have I wonder?
