A laudanum overdose. Maybe not the first theme that will spring to mind to write a jolly song about, but Marine Boreale (and songwriter Joachim Jannin) did just that. The first time I heard Overdose de Laudanum, suddenly everything went pink. Then yellow. Then I smelled blossoming trees, I heard the birds sing and I felt a strong urge to get the wife 'n kid and bike past the green flat fields in my neighbourhood. When I opened my eyes again, I saw my beatific smile in the reflection of the office-window. I did not take laudanum, but it sure felt that way.
