It is said that before and after the Rococo era, the French have been rampant in the Danish architecture and art world for many years. Even the equestrian statue of Frederick V on the Old Palace Square in the center of Copenhagen today is from the French Jacques Saly. It was an era when you could travel the world only by skill and without a passport. In contemporary times, after a French aristocrat gave up the opportunity to be an ambassador to become the queen's husband, he had a ceiling because of his royal status, and he had nowhere to vent his talents. He could only make a little wine company banner design in southern France, and finally died in depression. And left a will to refuse to be buried with the queen behind him. It can be seen that the matter of sticking a royal label cannot be done casually. All titles have a price, and most of the time it's worth the loss. There are not many good things about having both face and insides, but not at all. Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra's popular ballad Summer Wine in the 1960s, about a man who was robbed of a silver horse by a fairy dancer, seems to have gotten the most out of it. Don't talk about the big truth, don't fool me to go to Vietnam, drink the wine first and then talk about it. Lee is the songwriter, and let Nancy sing the song, giving her father Frank Sinatra enough face. At the beginning of the song, Nancy Sinatra's singing has no love, only the righteousness of robbery: Strawberry, Cherry and Spring Angel Kiss My summer wine is really made of these (Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring My summer wine is really made from all these things) The cherry wine here is the North American version. It first came from the backyard of a farmhouse in Michigan. It is definitely not an imported product. It is more likely to be a memory of the original homeland transplanted by Nordic immigrants from the cold zone. The year was 1966, and the anti-Vietnam War student movement in the United States was in full swing. What kind of war is there? Lee Hazlewood's lyrics don't mention politics but deconstruct politics, and he doesn't mention anti-war but instigates and induces everyone to eat, drink, and have fun. It's an American version of lust and caution.
