thinking at a few of the topics coming up. comes about the rest why berlin is one of europe's most significant city. checklist an honest to guide to the tourist trap and prong. home improvement how to make a stylish d.i.y. flayed show. they sold more than eighty million recalls since they forms thirty five years ago and now this that a lot aha back with a new album but always about a split up got back together several times but this time around they are getting along swimmingly and maybe that's because they're working on old cost six maybe it's because they're working with a new stripped back rule composition whatever the reason we love the result and i hope that they are backed by.
this is the first time the band has done this on stage. the concert. is part of the m.t.v. unplugged series along with familiar hits new songs like this is. their request for them to play without electric guitars and amplifiers was a welcome opportunity for singer morton harkat keyboardist. and guitarist paul revoked as avoid they withdrew for two weeks to a recording studio to work out the new arrangements for us but we've been.
playing with the idea of the natural day idea. of doing songs. that it's been sort of on the table several times for a very long time. and oceanview provided the serenity that helped them open up a new song. and she's. the result is an album with seventeen newly recorded classics songs and two covers. working on this album brought the three musicians closer together. and it's always sort of a sweet thing because we were. united just really. this is a great degree of. let's go. to concerts for m.t.v. unplugged took place in. in front of audiences of just two hundred fifty people the
group says these were the most intimate performances to date. their big break internationally in one thousand nine hundred five with take on may the song success was due in large part to its groundbreaking video its mixture of comic book style illustrations and live action made it one of the best music videos ever produced. morton harkat became one of the biggest teen idols of the eighty's. but in the ninety's the band had a slump the members devoted themselves increasingly to solo projects to. two thousand comeback with summer moved on. the song stormed the charts in europe but the musicians had long since shed their boy group image. music became more
serious like the two thousand and five singles selling. on the group's ninth studio album foot of the mountain synthesizers featured prominently. i thought to try to make this. quite simple and quite precise and quite clinical and. kind of. a little bit more energetic just one the band split up again. back in two thousand and fifteen there acoustic arrangements reveal undiscovered aspects of their songs. brings. some of the songs when you do something kind of. take on me in the
version it brings what essentially is there in. a sort of. melancholic structure. you know suddenly a surprising sight or. different thing but at the same time i think you would recognize it very intimately because it's been there all the time. starting in january fans will have a chance to experience without electronics and in
a flash that's when the norwegian m.t.v. unplugged. and on the twenty ninth of january aha will come to have been a in all great city which we have the chance to explore all through the year but then is great in fact all seasons of the year because there's so much to do here and that is why it's made into the top five year opinion cities to live in as ranked by the british magazine monaco we all know the reasons why it's so highly rated but if you don't then the editor of the magazine will fill you in. berlin's best known landmark the brandenburg gate. beside it the german parliament the reichstag with its glass dome. the just a stone's throw away museum island. the german capital is home to some three point
six million people and that number keeps growing it's one reason why berlin along with munich ranked third in london based lifestyle magazine monocles list of the world's most livable cities. what are going to be who will be the cities that will emerge as the new capitals of europe but not just capitals of finance are not just capitals of tech but real places where people want to live so even though prices are on the rise it's still incredibly expensive to get a great flat in berlin and certainly a great work space as well especially if you're comparing it to or sitting in london so livability and really cost of living was with a big component. in this year's ranking berlin also scored high when it came to architecture. the city boasts everything from old bill how many in style buildings to modern office towers like it potsdamer platz and new structures are constantly
adding to the changing cityscape. and there's something which you can't measure but it's that spirit of promise of the city has as well you just you just said opportunity and that is they're just another street that you can turn around and say that's really like to open up your can do to hire that is the place that you might want to start to publish your works and i think that in berlin you always see sort of promise and opportunity in so many quarters that sense that anything is possible also draws artists to the city they're attracted not only by the still affordable rent but also. by the diversity of berlin's art scene there's always something new happening like this temporary street art gallery one hundred sixty five artists from seventeen countries created murals and installations in a building slated for demolition two months later. in the summer there are a free open air concerts featuring well known musicians classical music for
everyone. and sometimes people just start to tango in the heart of the city it might look spontaneous but dancers arrange their flash mob rendezvoused over the internet they meet tango and then go their separate ways one of the interesting things we've seen in berlin is how the residents and visitors alike have been able to take over parts of the city of course there's always been this slightly. about the city has. this anarchy is most evident during the summer months when people lay claim to every free inch of space few major cities have as many public parks and green spaces as berlin the german capital is surrounded by forests and lakes. it has three thousand lakes and bodies of water around it of course if you are berlin or you know that it's there but i think probably if you're sitting in madrid
or you're sitting in naples or is the new york you don't think about all of the great places that you can escape to get a short amount of time on a bike on the us bond jump in your car and be on a lake sailing or have you do it. from and also has plenty of lakes and rivers within the city limits and some one thousand bridges more than venice you can go for a swim in a floating pool in the river spray in public pools and at beaches. the best known public beach is van's a in the southwest of the city it's abundance of leisure activities contributed to berlin's third place ranking as one of monocles most livable. cities in the world even though it's not all smooth sailing here. berlin has a number of challenges no question but at the same time the present and array of opportunities. this year the main criteria for determining the most livable cities were affordable living space
a wide variety of cultural activities and good infrastructure for instance a comprehensive subway and commuter train network accessibility by air played a limited role in the rankings luckily for berlin as its new airport which should have opened in twenty eleven is still under construction it's got wonderful table we loved because it's in our view it's an airport a they shouldn't close down it's a way that although an airport should be that you can sort of pull up curbside and walk straight to your flights and sadly i guess it will go away which is which is unfortunate. like many berliners the staff at monaco magazine would like to see table remain in operation that would make the city as attractive by day as it is by night. the perfect place to dance till dawn. thanks to the magazine for ranking our cities so highly here we turn now to the x.
