I listen to bands/singers who are about 8+ years old. Most modern singers/bands I've found sound as if they're skinning a live cat... sorry to those that like them, but a vast majority are wretched singers. Pretty faces don't take away from nails-on-chalkboard voices or absolutely stupid/meaningless lyrics. I have a well developed ear for music {I listen from classic / opera all the way through to country and rap... and everything in between} seeing as a number of my family members happen to be in the music business - including one uncle who is a world-known music producer.

As a woman I prefer harder music - rap, metal, etc.

I was listening to Coolio's Gangster's Paradise last night [closer to real rap than that sh*t West does]; though the only real rapper was Tupac.

This morning I was listening to a European band that I am quite biased to. The lead singer is a previous lover [yes, I'll admit, still an occasional on/off] & we've remained very good friends since [and friendly with the band]. The story how we met still [a decade later] makes me laugh... we originally met in Europe at a hotel. He was leaving the lobby, I was going in and we collided but he being 6'2" to my 5'3" knocked me on my ass. He didn't originally apologize, was dragged out by his colleages [band mates], though two days later at the hotel's bar [my cousins talked me into having a drink due to wedding I had attended, I rarely drink] he blundered through an apology-introduction combination.

An oldie but a goodie...Sempre e Per Sempre...Always and Forever

The rain and the sun
They change
People's faces
Can create a hell in your heart

They leave and then they return
And they never stop

You are always and forever

Remember

Wherever you are
If you seek me, I'll be there

Always and forever
By your side

I have seen people leave, get lost, and then return
And then leave again
Extending a hand...empty handed
With the same shoes walking different roads
Or with different shoes walking the same road

You mustn't' believe it
If someone tells you that
I'm not the same anymore

The rain and the sun bark and bite
But they pass
True love can be hidden
It can be confused
But it can never, ever be lost, never

Always and Forever
By your side

Always and Forever
By your side

I've recently been watching the video of Placido Domingo's Tosca, directed by Zubin Mehta. It was a sensation when it was done (well, among opera aficionados) because it was done in real time in the precise locations mentioned in the opera. It's available at Amazon and it's a good introduction for neophytes because it has English subtitles.

David Garrett performing Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor. It's a fresh approach to one of my favorite pieces of music of any type.

A resounding success!
"Like the Violin Concerto itself, Bell offered no surprises. But his popularity, and that of the piece, is due to his excellence as a musician. He played with a singing tone, a light, almost vocalized, dynamic, and with a fluid agility that he pushed to some delightful extremes of tempo. The concerto speaks naturally to him, with it’s soulfulness, humor, and moments of stirring sadness. The standing ovation that followed was almost de rigeur, but not undeserved. - See more at: http://newyorkclassicalreview.com/2015/12/gilbert-philharmonic-wrap-year-with-dark-sibelius-popular-mendelssohn-and-unexpected-encore/#sthash.nJ4UK5u1.dpuf"

Still not Isaac Stern, however, in my opinion.

Sibellius' 4th Symphony was also on the bill of fare. It was beautifully done, but not my cup of tea at all: if you're going through a dark time, or even if you're not, this could push you over the edge. :(

For some reason, in thinking of the past, this also came to mind, from an even earlier time. Ever since I heard it again in the film La meglio gioventù, which I've watched numerous times, it's always near the surface of my mind.

If you do go to Toscana, this is my own little guide. :) Perhaps it could prove helpful.
http://www.eupedia.com/forum/threads/30590-Tuscan-Holidays

My ancestry is only partly Tuscan, but Firenze is, along with Genova and Parma, and perhaps even more than they, the city of my mind, my heart, and my soul.

To put you in the mood:

Here is "Firenze Sogna", or Florentine Dreams. This was still dance music in the time of my parents; they absolutely loved it. I can even remember learning to dance to it (and songs like it), with my stocking feet on top of my father's shoes. Sometimes nostalgia has such a piercing sweetness it seems you could die of it...Well, enough of that. Here it is, and if you click on cc the English subtitles appear on screen.

If you do go, " Will you bring a kiss to Florence?" :)


"I was leaving one morning by steamship,
there was a gentleman of some age.
Seeing him I say: Excuse me, sir!
Forgive me, you're from Florence, yes I know.
You're going back home happily, well I see it,
and a small favor I ask of you.

Will you bring a kiss to Florence,
that is my city
and in my heart I always have it.
Will you bring a kiss to Florence,
I work only to see it again one day.

I'm a daughter of an immigrant,
for this I am faraway,
I work because one day I will return home.
Will you bring a kiss to Florence,
if I see you again, I'll give it back.

And that gentleman replied to me then,
I will bring your kiss home.
And for peace of mind since this time,
traveling I will keep it locked up.
But as soon as I get home I swear to you,
the kiss toward the sky will surely go.

I'll bring your kiss to Florence
that is your city
but also it's mine.
I'll bring your kiss to Florence
I am looking forward to when you'll be back.

You are the daughter of an immigrant,
for this you are far away,
but be sure one day you'll come back home.
I'll bring your kiss to Florence
and from Florence many kisses you'll get."

I was in a Jussi Bjorling mood again last night: Handel's Ombra Mai Fu-Never Was A Shade

"Tender and beautiful fronds
of my beloved plane tree,
let Fate smile upon you.
May thunder, lightning, and storms
never disturb your dear peace,
nor may you by blowing winds be profaned.

Never was a shade
of any plant
dearer and more lovely,
or more sweet."

It's proof that you can create divine music even about a tree. :)

First, Bjorling's beautiful version, and then as sung by a counter tenor and thus perhaps closer to what it sounded like originally, as it was written for a castrato.

Well, I'm not listening to him now, but I listened to him last night. He's more a late night, little light, kind of guy. Here's "I'm Your Man" by Leonard Cohen. I love him more now than when I was first introduced to his music. Maybe you need to have lived, and loved, and lost a bit before you can really appreciate him. One of the three great poets of "modern" American/Canadian music, in my opinion, along with Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. He's still going strong at 80 as you can see. I think he'd still be touring even if he hadn't been swindled out of most of his money. He always had "IT", and he's still got "IT". What a man.

After that, I was in a Spanish language mood so from the "Old World" I was listening to Piensa En Mi, by Luz Casal, which I've liked since I first heard it in the Pedro Almodóvar film " Tacones lejanos" (High Heels). There are better versions available for the sound quality, but on this one the English translation appears on screen. (His films are not for everyone but he's always interesting. My favorite of his films, and one of the least "out there", is "Volver" with Penelope Cruz. It's really wonderful, in my opinion.)

I tried watching the FOX Live Version of "Grease" last night. Can anyone spell awful? The performers all looked like they were over 35 with lined, overly thin faces, they weren't in sync, no energy; it was just sad. To get rid of the memory I went to youtube. This is what it's supposed to be like. I must say, this is one area where European teenagers miss out compared to American teenagers. No Homecoming Dance, no Junior Prom or Senior Ball, no pep rallies for the school football or basketball team. Those are good memories.

I think only Kevin Bacon in Footloose comes close to matching John Travolta in this.

This is an excerpt from an Andre Rieu concert in Tuscany. Most of this clip consists of selections of classical music although it begins with Once Upon a Time in the West by Ennio Morricone.

Morricone C'ERA UNA VOLTA IL WEST
Verdi : LA TRAVIATA ~ Libiam ai lieti calici
Bizet: CARMEN ~ Toreador
Verdi: NABUCCO ~ Va pensiero
Verdi: AIDA ~ Marcia Trionfale
Romance Anodyne
Inno di Mameli-Italian anthem ~ Novaro

The complete DVD also includes the following as well as more modern Itaian songs like Marina and L'Italiano.

"Nino Rota's Love Theme from "The Godfather". I adore this song, and have never heard it played so expressively. "Strangers in Paradise", which is the Borodin theme used in "Kismet".
"La Paloma".
"Puccini's "O Mio Bambino Caro", sung by Carmen Monarca.
"Franz von Suppé's "The Light Cavalry".
"Johann Strauss' "Lagune Waltz".
"Johann Strauss' rousing polka "Thunder and Lightening".
"Offenbach's "Barcarole" sung by Carla and Carmen.
"The Rose".
"Ode to Joy" from Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
" Rossini's "William Tell Overture".

It's a DVD that's more than worth the approximately ten dollar price at Amazon, not only for the lovely music, but for the setting and the wonderful audience reactions.

I call this "music for the end of the world". It's Verdi's Requiem. It's a toss up for me whether I prefer Verdi's or Motzart's.

Anyway, here is a short selection, the "Dies Irae", or "Day of Wrath", performed with great passion and brilliance by the Moscow State Symphony under Claudio Vandelli.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDFFHaz9GsY

This is the entire piece as beautifully directed by Maazel and sung by Pavarotti, among others.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ga26Lxw9RE

This is an interesting fact about the Verdi Requiem...

"The Requiem was performed 16 times between 1943 and 1944 by prisoners in the concentration camp of Theresienstadt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theresienstadt) (also known as Terezín) under the direction of Rafael Schächter (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rafael_Sch%C3%A4chter). The performances were extraordinary on several counts: first, they had only a single vocal score with piano accompaniment, so every part had to be learned from memory; second, they practised in a dark, cold, damp basement with only a broken piano after long days of forced labour; and third, as the performances took place over an extended period, many of the singers were removed by the Nazis and had to be replaced. The final performance particularly provided a basis for dignified self-expression as well as attempting to symbolically communicate the circumstances at the camp to a visiting International Red Cross delegation in 1944."

Of course, nobody gave a damn.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Requiem_%28Verdi%29

It was written to commemorate the death of Manzoni.

There is a long long time to go for that Angela....millions of generations yet. They are both great. While Verdis seem to be a more complex work and maybe more melodramatic, I find Motzarts requim easier to listen to and more pleasant. Its just a matter of opinion really

As to the two pieces of music, which one I play depends on my mood. I play the Verdi when I'm angry about some new outrage, the moments when I literally would look forward to the Judge coming to throw the evil into the flames for all eternity. I find it cathartic. :)

"Death and Nature shall stand amazed,
when all Creation rises again
to answer to the Judge. Mezzo-soprano and Chorus:
A written book will be brought forth,
which contains everything
for which the world will be judged.
Therefore when the Judge takes His seat,
whatever is hidden will be revealed:
nothing shall remain unavenged.
The day of wrath, that day will
dissolve the world in ashes,
as David and the Sibyl prophesied...



Anyway, I love this Libera Me with Leontine Price and Von Karajan:

Soprano and Chorus: Deliver me, O Lord, from eternal death on that awful day, when the heavens and the earth shall be moved: when you will come to judge the world by fire; I tremble, and I fear the judgment and the wrath to come, when the heavens and the earth shall be moved; The day of wrath, that day of calamity and misery; a great and bitter day, indeed.; Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them; Deliver me, Lord, from eternal death on that awful day. Deliver me, O Lord, when the heavens and the earth shall be moved; when you will come to judge the world by fire; Deliver me, Lord, from eternal death on that awful day. Deliver me.

Same for me, although I usually turn to groups like Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, or the Beach Boys.

I recently saw "Jersey Boys" the movie. I also saw the stage show. The show is better, but they're both a lot of fun.
I have the original cast CD of the stage show. It's great. Can't find it on youtube, but these guys are pretty good.

Listen To Your Heart-Laura Pausini

I've loved her voice for years, and there are so many songs of hers that I like. This one is particularly nice. (For Spanish speakers, she almost always does a Spanish language version of her songs.)

Hey, how are you now?
Betrayed by a story that has ended
and in front of you the way out
you feel alone
there is no one to listen to you
who shares your problems with you
never! don't change!
stay as you are
follow your destiny
because all the pain that you have inside
can never cancel your path
and now you'll discover
that the story of our every minute
belongs only to us
but not if you still remain
lost without a reason
in a sea of 'why'

listen to your heart inside of you
and in the silence you'll find the words
close your eyes and then go away
try to come to the planet of your heart

it's difficult to know
the right thing to do
if emotion hits you in the head
the pride that takes you
the nights in which remorse wakes you up
for fear of making an error
but if you find yourself
without a star to follow
don't ever give up

Believe in yourself! Listen to your heart!
do what it says, even if it makes you suffer
close your eyes, and let yourself go
try to fly over this pain

You won't deceive yourself
if you listen to your heart
open your arms to touch
every hand, every hope, every dream that you want
because later it will take you to every heart

every time that you don't know what to do
try to fly, to the planet of the heart

you, you, try to fly
to the planet of your heart

Goodness, how I love Italian concerts. I can sing along to my heart's content because so is everyone else. :)

Laura Pausini and Biagio Antonacci: Tra te e il mare-Between you and the sea

With so many modern singers their stage performances stink because they don't actually have good voices. That's never an issue with Laura. I don't know why she hasn't been able to crack the English language market. She's certainly done superlatively well with the Spanish language market, with 3 Latin Grammys, and huge sales and cult following all over Latin America.

Anyway, here's the English translation.


"I'm not afraid of you anymore
You’re all my life
I live on the breath you leave here
Which I consume while you’re away
I can’t divide myself between you and the sea anymore
I can’t stay quiet and wait any longer

Me, who would have lived with you
In your foreign looking city
Alone, with the instinct of someone who knows how to love
Alone, however always with you
I can’t divide myself between you and the sea anymore
I can’t feel tired of waiting any longer

No, no, darling
I don’t agree
Either you come back or you stay there
I don’t live anymore
I don’t dream anymore
I’m scared, help me
Darling, I don’t believe you anymore
Each time you leave
You swear to me it’ll be the last one
I prefer to say good bye to you

At night, I look in every star for a reflection of you
But all of this is not enough for me, I’m growing up now

No, no, darling
I don’t agree
Either you come back or you stay there
I don’t live anymore
I don’t dream anymore
I’m scared, help me
Darling, I don’t believe you anymore
Each time you leave
You swear to me it’ll be the last one
I prefer to say good bye to you

I can’t divide myself between you and the sea anymore
I can’t stay quiet and wait anymore
I can’t divide myself between you and the sea anymore"

It looks like some Eastern Roman/Byzantine paces,that's my very amateurish opinion.
The style,with its countless variations, probably implies Roman,Greek and Paleo-Balkanic features with a South-Slavic addition.
The Bulgarian dance really rocks,it is very similar to some of ours( esp.the paces);that's no sursprising since it's from a western and mountaineous region.
It's not only about the paces,it's the emotional intensity involved in these extremely fast dances that
really astonishes.


For the Greek,Albanian,Serb,Macedonian,Bulgarian,Romanian, or North-Carpathian peasant,dance was everything,
was more than everything,the hyperbolization of his life,of his community.
This looks like a line,but,it isn't;it's our ethnic DNA.


But I can reach much faster and honest to the source of true: for the Balkanians, dance is more than a drug,
not only that they constantly needed,it has to be fast,intense,improvised,and longlasting.

watch the pace:

she was a separatim Jew,

her family moved from Con/polis to Thessaloniki after the liberation from Ottoman about 1917, when most Separatim had already left Thessaloniki to New York,
her real name was Sharah Eshkenazi,
she is one of the top 10 women of that time artistic sceen in Greece
her styles combines the islands and minor Asian style,
she is dancing Aptaliko at video, a dance of Lesbos island and minor Asia coasts, Aptal means something like tramp, the one who does care what to wear or where to sleep, a kind of punk

that times was the times that Greek economy had a decline due to minor Asian destruction, and the forbit of cannabis for textile reasons,

Goral dance from Balada o Vojtovej Marine:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4BTX3aYhWk&hd=1


Some paces are identical with the ones from the Albanian dance,but
something else caught my attention:the way he makes her
falling in love is typical Romanian,as it is also described
in the rural novels,the firm neutralization of the other men
,of her,using both tender and harsh metods,this combination
of extreme initiative,charm,and public"humiliation",
as one way to mark her.

@Milan

Milan,it was the for rejoice after way too many metaheses.

@Yetos

Interesting details,Yet,as usual.

EDIT:

The Romanians from Southern Poland(the Polish documents recorded at least 500 villages in 1600),
had used the Vlach Law until the end of the 18th century,I'm sure that their descendants
,the Gorals,had preserved plenty of important customs.

From Stanislaw Lukasik,"Pologne et Roumanie":

Early records:in 1390,Giurgio from Stupnica, called Voyvoda Wallachorum
bishop Kiryllo Woloszyn from Przemysl(1353)
Ladomir the Vlach founds a village under the Vlach Law in Hodle Pole(1378)

Romanian toponyms in Poland:Wlochy(vlah); Malice(mal); Czaniec ( Cenac); Katyna (catina - 1566);
Sekul ( sec - 1582); Hotar ( hotar - 1676); Magura ( magura); Turbacz ( turbat); Sipot ( sipot);
; Roztoka (rastoaca); Ratunda (rotunda); Baltagul (baltag); Sulica (sulita); Stanka (stânca);
Sekatura (secatura); Zawoja (zavoi); Syhla(sihla); Bradul(brad); Pinu( pin); Cetynia (cetina);
Czuta (ciuta); Czerbul (cerb); Capul ( tap); Bacza (de la baci); Waratyk (varatic);
Tomnatyk (tomnatic); Paszuna ( pasune); Stynawa (stâna); Tarlo (târla); Strunga ( strunga);
Staneszcze (stâniste); Koliba (coliba); Mierydzna (merinda); Urdowa (urda)



EDIT2:

Although the dance is not Romanian,but Central European(Polish,Slovak?,Hungarian?),
it incorporates certain Balkanic features,for instance the paces that start at 0:35,
in other words,we see the Goral interpretation of it.

EDIT3:

Ivanko was the ultimate Balkanic Desperado;as a Vlach,he was born to be sure.

EDIT3.1

It seems that EDIT3 wasn't clear enough(that time either).

OK, the text(from the first link) clearly indicates that he wasn't that sure;
besides,he switched sides often,from the Bulgarian to the Byzantine one.

After the destruction of minor Asia and exchange of population at 1923 unemployment was everywhere,
Greeks as naval nation already had moved to America, but was a strange feeling there, church of Ai Nikolas at liberty street was already from 1832, at the heart of Manhattan among the 9/11 twin towers.
but the unemploiment and the conomical problems of a continoued war that started from 1904 Balkan wars and ended at 1923 (19 years) with exchange of population kneeled down South and East balkans and minor Asia,

so Greeks started to seek solution at migrating to 'America',
Elia Kazan had a film about that at 1963
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkqKHapqda4

I have a friend who's origin is from Pontos, when the exchange happened, his grand father's sister, married a USA sailor from Chicago above the ship that brought them from Pontos to Greece,
later at 2004 a story of 700 νυφες nyfe,neve, women to marry, that travel with the same boat from Con/polis to USA, become a movie,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbigR6gRGLU

that created also a reaction, cause it become ethos, common use, until 1935.
Greek and other Balkanic young boys moving to America to make 'dollaria', at the age of 16-18 and at age about 35-40 were asking a bride from their home origin, to make family,
the travel lines were so common that even from Peiraias, Patrai and Thessaloniki ships were traveling to USA,
as you will se at the bellow video link at 2:37 there were even Greek lines straight to Quebec Canada,
All you needed is to stay days outside the USA and Canada embassy and ambassadors to wait your turn for pappers

at 1935 a song was record and published
the music composer was 'Σαλονικιος', (The-Salonique origin) one of the 2 best violin players of that time,
his real name was Δημητριος Σεμσης Dimitris Semsis (Semses) and his origin was from Strumnitsa (Στρωμνιτσα) today Fyrom.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWYu1rZwoR4

I can post 2 videos so I link the official record above

I choose to post the same song as it is recorded with Τσαμπουνα, zampogna in italian, a king of Guida, pipes, Ασκαυλος, that is found at South Italy and Aegean pelagos


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbigR6gRGLU

so the song is 'Μη με στελνεις μανα, στην Αμερικη'
'Don't send me, mammy, to America'.

from the lyricks,
μην με στελνεις μανα στην Αμερικη,
γιατι θα μαραζωσω και θα πεθανω εκει,

' Dont' send mother to America,
cause I 'll got depress and I will die there'

Δολλαρια δεν θελω πως να σου το πω,

After Australia a new migration Road opens, it is 'by far' near and work is certain, Deutschland of Antenauer,
from 50's and 60's Germany is absorving not only Greeks, but all South Europeans, Balkans and Turkey youth, but they prefered married couples so the 'brides' is not repeated.

the composer Ακης Πανου Akis Panou was borned at Athens at 1933, and his music is affected by pontian Greeks that were plenty at his neighborhood.

the song is Στο Σταθμο του Μοναχου, ' At Munchen's train station'


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkJYQL6GYRI

the style of song is rempetiko,

Lyricks
'At Munich train station

Antra mou paei at Greek means
my husband has gone, went away, but also has the meaning of my husband is lost

wake up women, cause st Bricio day has passed, and we stay alone,
cause our men, one by one they leave us,

Wow. Everything is definitely culturally conditioned. That doesn't look anything like the kind of similar dancing with which I'm familiar. No offense, but I don't see anything seductive or charming in that particular male Romanian dancer. Beckoning a girl to the dance floor by crooking a finger at her in that domineering, aggressive way? Grabbing her by the arm and dragging her onto the dance floor? If my father and brothers didn't take care of it, I would have...:)

Plus, in my opinion, seduction should go both ways, and no touching until the woman has made her choice. :)

It looks like some Eastern Roman/Byzantine paces,that's my very amateurish opinion.
The style,with its countless variations, probably implies Roman,Greek and Paleo-Balkanic features with a South-Slavic addition.
The Bulgarian dance really rocks,it is very similar to some of ours( esp.the paces);that's no sursprising since it's from a western and mountaineous region.
It's not only about the paces,it's the emotional intensity involved in these extremely fast dances that
really astonishes.


For the Greek,Albanian,Serb,Macedonian,Bulgarian,Romanian, or North-Carpathian peasant,dance was everything,
was more than everything,the hyperbolization of his life,of his community.
This looks like a line,but,it isn't;it's our ethnic DNA.


But I can reach much faster and honest to the source of true: for the Balkanians, dance is more than a drug,
not only that they constantly needed,it has to be fast,intense,improvised,and longlasting.

watch the pace:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysLF7Ij-QiY&hd=1


PS


I see you're more into opera nowadays.

Bulgarians Irish and Russians made traditional dance to a show, an opera as yopu said.
the video you post is a more like a show than an ordianry wedding or fiesta panigiri dance, like the Russians had once the famous Ballet shows, etc etc

dance is to have fun, and burn the callories from fiesta food, and raise your heart beats, worm up your body, and blood circulation,
well a good dancer sometimes dance to earn the girl, but that mainly at wending dances.
if villagers dance like that then after 1-2 dances they will be dead. :laughing:

a more simple version of that dance,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5z6BMRnaEg
as you will see Aromanian women have mania with blue and purple colours, and old and widowed women wear black
dark red was mostly a colour of difference, a high degree of society,royal ancestry, or an honoured person,
at Thracian and south Slavic girls red was primary colour.

i will post later a video of a known and proud Aromanian village and you will see.

Similarities inevitably occur due to the ability of cultures to
easily expand,to influence one another,but in order to certify a
certain correlation,you have to add the facts that supports it.
Living isolated in the mountains,the Gorals had probably integrated
their original Vlach elements even into the Polish dances,developing
a style of their own,like the other North-Carpathian groups did.


This is the story of two shepherds that have met in an exposition
from Torino,the Pole,hearing that his companion is Romanian,said
to him that he is of Vlach origin too.They came up with a project,to
reconstruct the Vlach migration to Northern Carpathians.
The Polish hinghlanders couldn't retain their ancestral
way of living(shepherdry)without preserving other traditions too.


To summarize,I don't care if the Polish dance is just a Medieval
pan-European phenomenon,but I'm very interested of Goral print
in it,it has to be one,since they had ultimately preserved non-Polish/non-
Slovakian dances(hora,for instance,a traditional Romanian circle dance).

http://www.romania-insider.com/romanian-shepherd-walks-1300-km-with-herd-across-carpathians-in-trashumance-revival-project/106890/




It is very likely that these mountaineers had preserved(judging from people's faces)
not only traditions,but also genes for their agitated kingdom.

EDIT:

"Gorals have their distinctive music and the intricate quick step dance that is performed to this day."

​http://www.shsnepa.org/Folktales%20and%20Legends/History%20Tales/Who%20are%20the%20Gorals.htm

EDIT2:

"Southern Poland features the culture of the Gorals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorals) (Polish highlanders). These dances were brought to this mountain areas with Vlach (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlach) settlers in the 17th century. Very similar versions can be found at the Gorols inSlovakia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovakia) and in Czech Republic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_Republic). The rhythm (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhythm) of their music is different for the otherwise duple or triple-meter of the lowlands."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_folk_dances

EDIT3:

"The dynamic of this custom raises the issue ofthe significance and importance of the creative act at the level of the reconstructionof male dance, which was put into circulation by the nowadays Goral tradition or ancientVlach basic motifs, slightly modified, together with several Gorals from Polandand the Vlachs folkloric groups from Slovakia and Czech Republic in a well know annualfestival named Troje Meze that starts in the last week of June or in the first weekof July"

"During 1970-1999 we observed a general scientific and cultural interest that doubledby financial efforts concerning collecting and publishing Polish Mountaineersfolklore, because they had published almost 73 traditional musical albums by Górals
within the Podhale, Beskids and Silesia counties, and between these albums we havefound 16 albums of traditional choreology.We want to underline the several projects made by the Institute of Archaeologyand Ethnology from Kraków and of course all the seminars dedicated to Carpathianethnology, because scientific interest is still actual in the Academic Polish milieu.In all of these studies published in the last few years in Poland we have discoveredclues, scientific documents, opinions that lead us to a shyness but proper acceptanceof historic realities that obviously show the presence and ethno-cultural contributionsof Vlach shepherds to the completion of the Central European cultural spirit of ourCarpathian neighbours"

"If I Die Young"-The Band Perry

"If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in a river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh, uh oh

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh,
And life ain't always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain't even grey, but she buries her baby

The sharp knife of a short life, oh well
I've had just enough time

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The sharp knife of a short life, oh well
I've had just enough time

And I'll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom
I'm as green as the ring on my little cold finger,
I've never known the lovin' of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holdin' my hand,
There's a boy here in town, says he'll love me forever,
Who would have thought forever could be severed by...

...the sharp knife of a short life, oh well?
I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys, and I'll wear my pearls
What I never did is done

A penny for my thoughts, oh, no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singin'
Funny when you're dead how people start listenin'

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

Uh oh (uh, oh)
The ballad of a dove (uh, oh)
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save 'em for a time when you're really gonna need 'em, oh

The sharp knife of a short life, oh well
I've had just enough time

So put on your best, boys, and I'll wear my pearls."

Sweet country pop song, I seem to go back listening to this music once in a while, depending on mood of course. They remind me of Lady Antebellum. Never alone was my favorite and used to listen to alot. The Lyrics where just perfect to a situation I was in at the time, but the music was good too.

I thought it was appropriate given they're burying so many young people, even little children, after the attacks in Nice.

This atrocity is hitting me particularly hard because I go there so often. I love southern France; it's sort of my second European home after Italy. Stupid, I know, but when I saw pictures of that truck parked on the Promenade des Anglais near the Negresco, I got literally nauseous. I had been seriously considering going to Europe early this year, and perhaps being in France for Bastille Day. I lived through 9/11, and lost people I cared about, and now I feel as if I almost lived through this.

I mean look at this:

Yes, as I've admitted, I listen to the "Oldies" station when I'm in the car. Here's one of the best: "That Old Time Rock and Roll"-Bob Seger.

I think of it as great, windows open, cruising in the car kind of music, although it's great at summer pool and beach parties too, and summer concerts.

Here is the original version, and then there's a link to Jersey Boy Jon Bon Jovi and Kid Rock...so fun. :) He's like, what, 50, here? He's definitely still got it. :)

Actually it was not my first choice at that time(garbarek) but i possibly motivated from the previous posts about France's iterrible incident. Allthough from the video I really touched with the young tearing soldier, (about at ~2:50)

My first thought was music for the car, summer time, etc., but I instictively i change my thought.

You seem to like my music based on what you said in the cargo pants thread lol (kidding).

It takes a certain kind to enjoy work with a more psychadelic flavor such as the vid I posted last Thursday. Just this morning I awoke from a dream where a vigilante was riding a bicycle trying to catch a criminal with a gun attached to a fishing rod! The fishing rod was about 500 feet long and he kept getting it caught against buildings and cars.

Those dreams are actually pretty normal compared to most of the others I've had such as watching some guy in a music video singing about his disease as his face deforms while some of it melts off or the multiple bouts of sleep paralysis I had one night, some of which involved screaming disembodied voices shouting loudly in my ears, a faceless baby, me attempting to scream in terror at the top of my lungs but not being able to etc. I could write a book, but I don't want to stray too far from the topic of this thread.

I'm no stranger to sleep paralysis and throughout most episodes, I would hear "spirits" screaming in my ears.

"This next song was sung by Billie Holiday, called Gloomy Sunday. When she first recorded it on the radio there was a protest from the record company because it was too pessimistic and depressing. Therefore, they had her change the ending to make it more optimistic and hopeful. And at that moment was born the first pop music. I don't do it that way, of course."

I like the song and the visuals.

Did you know it was originally a Hungarian song? That makes more sense to me.

"
"Gloomy Sunday"

Sunday is gloomy,
My hours are slumberless,
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers will
never awaken you
Not where the black coach
of sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought of
ever returning you
Would they be angry
if I thought of joining you
Gloomy Sunday.

Gloomy is sunday
with shadows I spend it all
My heart and I have
decided to end it all
Soon there'll be candles
and prayers that are sad,
I know, let them not weep,
let then know
that I'm glad to go

Death is no dream,
for in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my
soul I'll be blessing you

Gloomy Sunday
Dreaming
I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you
asleep in the deep of
my heart
dear

Darling I hope that my dream
never haunted you
My heart is telling you
how much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday."

KD Lang can project more "heat" into a song than virtually anyone I can think of, as she does in this snippet of the song "Fever". The sizzle is obviously for women, though, rather than for men, which I think has inhibited her career even in this era.

Bird On A Wire:

This is the original Leonard Cohen performance of his own song. It's wonderful...a song by a grown up for grown ups. I've also provided a link to the cover by Johnny Cash, which is, imo, equally good in its own way. Johnny's diction is better, or the video is better, so all the words come through clearly, important for all Leonard Cohen "songs", as they're essentially poetry put to music.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gdXNSoYa4S8MTV was an interesting concept / idea. It is just too bad that corporation, fame and greed had to destroy such a great idea and a new frontier for the Western word and entertainment. Hope you all enjoyed this original first video (vintage) of Video Killed the Radio Star. It is a privilege. (You may not be able to find it anywhere, unfortunately.)


BTW, this was given to me personally, as a present, by original MTV Video-jockey Mark Goodman on VHS. (had to transfer and burn to DVD and then CD-ROM.) He no longer works at Viacom I don't believe, but he persuaded UMG (Universal Music Group.) to grant me privileges to the copyright.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unVqWMDNYGA

Here is the first day of MTV, live. Unfortunately, you will not find "Video Killed the Radio Star" on it (it's cut for some odd) but you should see Mark there in the beginning. He was the main host VJ from 1981-1987. ) I just had to post this video on there, because it was a must.

(edit, nevermind, I just found a video with Video Killed the Radio Star. Someone posted it 19 days ago on the 31st of July, cool. I hope Viacom gave them the OK to post it. It would be sad if YouTube pulls it again.)

There is wedding at the neighborhood at the town I am now,
the boy's origin is from Pontus, that migrate at 1923,

typical song in most of their rituals, a kind of anthem is a song from Οινοη Oinoe Unye in Turkish about a village called Tsambasi ceybasi

the former's origin is from kappadokia, his mother did not know Greek until she reached Greece at 1923,
Kazantzidis at the decades from 1950-1990 is consider more than a singer, rather a teacher,
all his song are mostly education, on how to speak, to love, to cry, to sing, etc
even today is very poppular among working class, especially heavy workers,
a kind of teacher on how and what is worker, his demands, and his obligation,


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSoL3hWyehU

I just wanted to share this sounds that are in my neighborhood with you,

ΩΠΑΑ

the song is about a fire that happened to the village at early 1900, which was a great mountain resort and passage from sea to inland, so a great commercial center,
a total disaster, and at the end as the teacher says, all poor and rich, they shit down together and they cry

I appreciate the post, Yetos. These kinds of tragedies spare no one, right? They teach people how much alike they really are...

I couldn't understand the lyrics, but I could hear the pain in his voice.

I very much like songs the best which capture universal human feelings, with no artificial divisions between rich or poor, or ethnicities...

This is also a song about working men and the difficulties they face...the seamen of Liguria. It's called Creuza de Ma, or sea lanes, and it's sung in Genovese dialect by Fabrizio De Andre, one of our greatest singer song-writers. If you don't see the English subtitles on screen, click on cc.

well the previous song is difficult for me to transalet,
it has also Turkish and Persian words,

but the bellow its ok
only as every translation by a non expert will lose a lot,


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-Re9SUebgE

it is a man's song, a man that feels the responsibilities of his life,

the lyrics in Greek are at the publications info

in English as I can translate

All my life is a responsibility
that 'takes' all, and gives nothing
All my life is a furnace(kiln)
that I have fall in, and braise me,

All my life is a foolishness
that is my only fortune (belongings-substance)
All my life is a sacrifice
having no purpose, neither meaning

All my life is a cigarette
that I do not like, yet I smoke it
and when comes to butt, a treat to Charos (libation to deat's ferryman)
for when the time come, and happen accidently to meet him (ferryman has been payed by my life's butt)


an alternative translation

My whole life is a responsibility
it takes everything from me, it gives nothing,
my whole life is furnace
in which I have fallen and which slowly roasts me.

My whole life is a nonsense
and my only property
my whole life is a sacrifice
which has nor goal, nor meaning

My whole life is a cigarette,
which I don't fancy, yet I smoke it
when the cigarette butt become a treat to death,
when the time is up, I bum him off (for a cigarette).

kazantzidis was married for a short time with the top 'lady' and Diva of Greek female performers, (few knows what happened to Australia)
the one that was like teacher to many girls at 60's till 80's,
Marinella, some probably know her by singing Grecani songs from S Italy,


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1TMtncsdm0

infos about her
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marinella

the best perfomance that even today no Greek female singer dares to sing, cause it is consider not only impossible but also unholly
is this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BtCDF4avpw

lyrics are here,
http://lyricstranslate.com/el/anikse-petra-%CE%AC%CE%BD%CE%BF%CE%B9%CE%BE%CE%B5-%CF%80%CE%AD%CF%84%CF%81%CE%B1-open-stone.html

Marinella always use to sing about the pain of a women, and to be a 'lady', a perfect morale female,
even today Marinella's song are loved by women, as the woman who stand and fight with the correct female way.
Although many criticise her as too excessive.

the most poor song for her abilities, as also outside her style and philosophy
was the 1974 Eurovision contest,
Marinella was the first Greek performer ever in Eurovision contest
'a bit of wine, a bit of sea, and my boyfriend'

Actually, perhaps the Greek singer is closer to Mia Martini? I like, and have posted Minuetto, but this one, "Gli Uomini non Cambiano" or Men Don't Change, is perhaps her "rawest" song. Well, that and "Cumme".

I found a version that has the English translation on screen. It's not great, but better than nothing. I should do one myself.

the other remained still a talented perfomrmer.
she is fantastic, but I expect more from her,


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLb-kFbpBTw


anyway rap and new kinds of music, just change our aisthetics,
modern products of music, at least in Greece, are empty, without soul,
just hits, beats, and again and again,
great performs of old music, still impress me more, but not the new beat-hit like style,
especially thessaloniki and Makedonia which until 90's had her own scene and was ahead in Rock and new wave style in Greece today seems like not to exist,
we hear more old songs at cafes and sing them at tavernas, the only new is from abroad, the hits/beats from USA and glamour style.

Yetos
12-09-16, 00:45
last decades in greece, we are facing depreciation,
and that reflect to music, which today is either stupid lyrics, either ironic sarcastic lyrics,

starting from Seikilos and Mesomedes or orfeus.

2 less known istrument that comes from antique

1. Κανων/κανονακι Qanun Canun

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/s_uX8lijB-c/hqdefault.jpg


Κανονακι comes is evolution of Pythagoras monochordon,

the father of Qanun and Santour is considered Pythagoras,
kanon has 79 points/places and kanonaki (small) has less
modern long tail and Piano are based in the form of kanon and santouri more than in the piano of Cristofori of Padua

Kanon today is very famous at West Turkey and Arab countries,
Kanon was one of the most favourite instruments in Brygia and Smyrna before 1922

only from the sound and play you can realize its dynamic and relativity
the difference is that is played as a string organ with fingers than with mechanic hits as piano


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3gfRe9Lzjo

and a video in Turkish

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rb7wIep6xLg

Both Kanon and Santour are evolution of ψαλτηριον which is evolution of epigonion of Pythagoras

Yetos
25-09-16, 00:40
2. Santour Santuri

Santour is the evolution of Kanon by Iranians and is developed at Persia with 100 points, while the older Greek form has 75,
its homeland is considered Persia.
Santour means 100 chordes in Iranian, but strangely the inner terms kept their mathematic etymology of Kanon (pythagoreian terms) like 'Kharak' and 'Poshte kharak' (Χαραξ, οπισθεν χαραξ)
Santour is very popular at Iranic world, and is played from Greece to India to China.
it is like piano of the West in some areas.

at the video is Makedonian rythm of Makelaris dance which passed to Con/polis Tatavla (kurtulus) as hasapiko and today is known as 'Syrtaki'
the atmospheric sounds of Byzantine empire on a Makedonian war dance via an old instrument that was evoluted by Persians.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMTTvAIR-ts

Santour was almost extinguist at Greece at 1950's-60's when Greece turn to western instruments,
but survived thanks to a great teacher A Moschos/Moshos
Aristeides Moschos was also considered as an elite santour player world wide,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRBVBrVCABs


PS
lately some deny that the etymology Santour is Iranian origin,
and consider it as Latin,
both Kanon and Santour comes from ψαλτεριον the east monastic organ/instrument (compare the pipe organ of the West)
ψαλτηριον (psalterion) in Latin/Italian would be something like Cantor Chantor

a ψαλτηριον was not allowed at Liturgy

This means a lot to me bc a) you got to rescue a princess and b) lead her out of the dungeon and protect her! As a male this was an awesome experience! We males love the "feeling" of being responsible for the safety of women and I would've loved the opportunity to risk death for a princess and have her weep for me in case I succumb to a mortal stab wound!

Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo giusto,
Lì tutti vivono in pace e in onestà.
Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere,
Come le nuvole che volano,
Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima.


In my fantasy I see a just world
Where all live in peace and honesty
I dream of souls that are always free
Like clouds that soar
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.




Nella fantasia io vedo un mondo chiaro
Lì anche la notte è meno oscura.
Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere,
Come le nuvole che volano.
Pien' d'umanità.


In my fantasy I see a bright world
Where even night there is less darkness
I dream of souls that are always free
Like clouds that soar
Full of humanity.




Nella fantasia esiste un vento caldo,
Che soffia sulle città, come amico.
Io sogno d'anime che sono sempre libere,
Come le nuvole che volano,
Pien' d'umanità in fondo all'anima.


In my fantasy exists a warming wind
That breathes into the city, like a friend
I dream of souls that are always free

No, I don't speak any Gaelic - the Ontario educational system managed to wipe it out in past generations. It's still spoken in the Cape Breton area of Nova Scotia, which is where the Rankins are from. Most of the songs they recorded are in English, in order to reach a wider audience. But I like listening to the language of my ancestors, even though I don't understand it. Other artists from Cape Briton who've recorded in both English and Gaelic are Mary Jane Lamont and Wendy MacIssacs.

This song reminds me of the Syrian mothers who are trying to protect their children from death and destruction brought upon by warfare and terrorism. Especial these lyrics:
"War has come, bringing death,
lust and pain SOILING OUR HOME.
MOURNS AND CRIES kindle hate,
taint our hearts, corrupt our souls."

My interpretation of "mourns and cries" is a Syrian mother mourning her children after they've been killed by senseless warfare. It's so sad .

"You don't own me" First is the original by Leslie Gore. It's been covered innumerable times. I've included a modern version from Grace. 122 million hits and counting.

Lady Gaga's half time show at the NFL football match. It took me a long time to warm up to her, but the conversion process started with her singing duets with Tony Bennett, and now this seals the deal...

She wrote these songs (other than the patriotic ones), choreographed the dances, produced and directed the whole show, and then performed the whole thing live, no lip synching, and only when she sat down to play the piano after dancing did she sound out of breath.. She has an amazing voice, and it was an amazing production. I now believe that she indeed has a Mensa level IQ and was always in classes for the gifted.

It is an old song about 40 years
it is Ρωμιοσυνη, Ρωμανια ανδ Ρωμυλια


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLh9IxuW00M


Εδώ σωπαίνουν τα πουλιά
σωπαίνουν κι οι καμπάνες
σωπαίνει κι ο πικρός Ρωμιός
μαζί με τους νεκρούς του

Και απα στην πέτρα της σιωπής
τα νύχια του ακονίζει
μονάχος κι αβοήθητος
της λευτεριάς ταμένος
Τη ρωμιοσύνη μην την κλαις
εκεί που πάει να σκύψει
με το σουγιά στο κόκκαλο
με το λουρί στο σβέρκο

Νάτη πετιέται απο ξαρχής
κι αντριεύει και θεριεύει
και καμακώνει το θεριό
με το καμάκι του ήλιου

here the birds are silent (do not sing)
even the bells are silent
and the sad (bitter acrimonius) Romios is in silence
together with his dead people

and upon the stone of silence
he is sharpening his nails
alone and with no help
dedicated to Freedom

Do not cry for Romiosyne
cause there when she is about to kneel
with the knife reaching the bone
and the ruff-neckband on the shoulders

there she springs from the begin
and stands on feet (becomes man) and grows
and she harpoons the Therion (monster)
with the harpoon of the Sun



as for the Romios choose, but it is the same

Him

It's the newest rap song in the United States. You can go on Youtube and type in search, 6x8 Michael Black. He also has another really cool modern rap called Me, Myself & I.

Since it is Easter here in Greece,
and people celebrate,

Spring day was 15 days the new moon after 21 march equinox
and mother nature day will be after 1 month,

I would share a song from Makedonia which usually you can hear it at Weddings
κερνα μας treat on us


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSv3eLg40GI

At Makedonia we love the old organs, like Askavlos-gaida, Zourna, etc
the connection with Austrohungarian empire imported the bronze musical instruments last 2 centuries,

if you want to hear it at a more Byzantine-Con/polis version listen the same song here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpPUH5Q_tFw

we came to see you (how you are doing)
treat us and have a good time

This song means a lot to me personally. The way it captures the emotions that I've felt is uncanny...here's the lyrics in case you can't bother with the metal
Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this Can t be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he 's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now, I can't think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death Greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye
