A-Ha - October (1986)

커버배경 : 하와이 마우이섬의 할레아칼라 화산
(Haleakalā volcano on Maui, Hawaii, 1986, by Knut Bry)

멋진 곡들이 줄줄이 쏟아졌던 Scoundrel Days 앨범 가운데
DoubleMichael Franks 분위기를 동시에 느낄 수 있는 제법 멜랑한 곡으로 October를 꼽을 수 있다.
곡 초반의 백색소음과 어선의 종소리를 들으면 살짝 '구니스'의 구름끼고 축축한 바닷가 마을이 생각난다.

A-Ha - October (Scoundrel Days, 1986-10-06)

Dawn awaits a sleepless, English town
Of coloured gray
Here I roam the streets without you
As summer fades away

...down in the city at nights
The cold wind blows

Wherever you may be right now
It must be getting late
You're probably asleep already
I am wide awake

...down in the city at nights

"Don't be lonely"
so you've told me
But don't you worry now
Loneliness can be ignored
And time has shown me how

... down in the city at nights
I'm missing you so much
Down in the city
Down in the city...
