The Nits are a Dutch art rock group, founded in 1974. Their musical style has varied considerably over the years, as has their line-up with the core of Henk Hofstede (the group's lead singer and lyricist), Rob Kloet, drummer, Robert Jan Stips (Supersister, Gruppo Sportivo, Golden Earring), keyboards.

Their biggest hit in the Netherlands was "Nescio" (1983), a tribute to the Dutch author Jan Hendrik Frederik Grönloh. The major hit that brought the band to the attention of an international audience was "In the Dutch Mountains" (1987).



The Nits - In The Dutch Mountains

I was born in the valley of bricks
Where the river runs high above the rooftops
I was waiting for the cars coming home late at night
From the Dutch mountains

I was standing in the valley of rock
Up to my belly in an early fog
I was looking for the road to a green painted house
In the Dutch mountains
In the Dutch mountains
Mountains

I met a woman in the valley of stone
She was painting roses on the walls of her home
And the moon is a coin with the head of the queen
Of the Dutch mountains
In the Dutch mountains

I lost a button of my shirt today
It fell on the ground and it was rolling away
Like a trail leading me back
To the Dutch mountains
To the Dutch mountains
Mountains

I met a miller on the back of a cow
He was looking for the wind but he didn't know how
I said: "Follow the cloud that looks like a sheep"
In the Dutch mountains
In the Dutch mountains
In the Dutch mountains
Mountains
Mountains
Buildings

Επίσης υπέροχο και το Adieu sweet bahnhof. Μου αρέσει και το κλιπάκι.



Adieu sweet bahnhof

I have been waiting for hours in this train
And I'm riding through Brussels in the rain
Back to Paris more or less confused
By the shadows of tractors on the land
By the changes in my life I pretend
There's a new life waiting there for me
I asked myself what sort of books I'd read
In a train if I ever felt the need
I bought "My life with Picasso"
I think of so many things I like to do
I will go to the Centre Pompidou
There's a still-life part of my life too
Adieu, adieu sweet bahnhof
My train of thoughts is leaving tonight
Now like an arrow we're aimed at Gare du Nord
Between backs of the houses streets like fjords
And the night falls over Paris
So I've come back to the Hotel d'Angleterre
I lay down on a double bed and stare
At the ceiling what a feeling (to be back)
Adieu, adieu sweet bahnhof
My train of thoughts is leaving
Tonight

Εμ, με ιδρώτα βγαίνει το μεροκάματο. Εξάλλου, μόνο με βάρκα διασχίζονται οι ολλανδικές οροσειρές! :P

Απαλό κομμάτι και νοσταλγικό το βίντεο. Δεν το είχα ξανακούσει. Ευχαριστώ για την προσθήκη, F_idάνι.  :D
