I'm fed up with Sarah Palin! So I'm going to share some of the music I enjoy with you.
Starting with a classic: "My Back Pages", by The Byrds, waaaay back.
Moving on to one of my favourite TV themes. Let it run on pause for a bit, the buffering is iffy:
This one is an acquired taste. It's in Arabic and can be enjoyed best if you close your eyes when you listen to it the first few times. It must be my Spanish/Moorish blood, but it stirs me.
The next four became personal anthems since moving to France. "Pull up Pull up!" is French rap. Hey, I'm over fifty, but I love to dance! "Boum" is very old, sung by a controversial gay man, Charles Trenet. "La Ceinture" was a major hit in France a couple of years ago, it's full of double entendres. "Je ne regrette rien" goes without saying, it's classic Edith Piaf.
The next one is part of the soundtrack of my favourite film ever. Cinema Paradiso is a moving, beautiful, perfect film. If you have the chance, watch the ORIGINAL version, NOT the director's cut. The latter is over explained and spoils the whole feel of this great film. (Buffering doggy on this one)
I hope you have enjoyed this musical intermission. I have!
