Laid Back Music: Rocco Deluca & The Burden’s Lilja

  • Pin it

My dahlings! You’ve known me for so many years! You’ve read me so many times and you played the music I liked so many weekends! I love this friendly feeling – it’s like we knew each other. And yet not so much after all. Right at the fine border between familiarity and mystery, exactly where the fondness turns to curiosity, that’s where I think Lilja is too!

So many times I’ve listened to it (it starts at the 1 minute mark, so feel free to fastforward when you press play), I love it more and more, and I still think there are undiscovered layers to it and peeling further will only take me deeper into likeness. That’s all I can hope and pray for when you’re reading me (wink).

My dahlings, Rocco Deluca & The Burden’s Lilja, right after the jump!

rocco deluca lilja

A promenade through Old New Delhi, as it was described by Rocco Deluca himself, personal, intrusive but linear and distant. Filmed by Leaf Baimbridge and edited by Charlie Finelli, this video log is of no particular relevance to the song itself as the music praises a girl named Lilja (a name derivative from Latin, mostly used in Icelandic countries – it means Lily) and the love for her. So do not let yourselves be fooled with the images, instead close your eyes and feel the music. It really felt beautiful and I absolutely treasure this new discovery I’m sharing today with you! Let me know what you think after you’ll listen to it. Once. Twice, how many times you feel necessary to form the right opinion. Have a wonderful Sunday, my dahlings! Keep true to your hearts!

I am emotional again. Believe it or not last song I listen to last night or in the wee-wee hours were Slash and Rocco DeLuca together. Rocco participated on Slash solo album. (RN’FR 2010). One of my fave tracks of that album is Saint Is A Sinner Too. Rocco sings it and wrote the lyrics. So beautiful. Can’t believe that the first music I’m going to listen is Rocco DeLuca…..

…..aww, that was so beautiful. I love it. Thanks again for a great choice in music and sharing it with us in your own so special passionate way :)

Oh, wow! Thank YOU! :)
I’m so happy that you liked it! Even more so since it’s such a great coincidence! Like our dearest Ana said, there are no real coincidences – everything is interconnected and everything happens for a reason <3
Let's listen to it once more, it's so musical and warm <3

Kpriss, you should listen to Saint Is A Sinner Too as well.

Haha, I entered FB and in my newsfeed appeared a photo of the Rijksmuseum I was talking about. The Cuypers Library is almost ready. Due to renovating. It has been a long time. No, that was not the library I was talking about. This one is just for admiration. :)
