    One of the great things about being a parent is being able to relive those great films through your children. It's a wonderful excuse to see the world through a child's eyes. Even now, on the rare occasion, long after the children are grown, my wife and I will pull out a Disney feature, Beauty & the Beast, Snow White, or Cinderella, and watch them to enjoy the incredible skill and artistry of these movies. How exciting is must have been to be the first audience to see Snow White!

    Children also let us go back to Disneyland again and again. I don't like what I've heard about recent changes to the park, but in the day is was grand!

    Callas was the best actress in opera ever, imo. Here she transforms herself into an anxious, love struck teen-ager. This aria always gets me, but never more than in this performance.

    Simply wonderful. What elegance. What a spectacular voice. These videos are a record for eternity. I was amazed.

    It would be difficult for me to pick "a" favorite performance by Callas, but this Violetta in La Traviata is "way" up there. She pierces and then wrings the heart. Verdi and Callas were a match made in heaven.

    There are English subtitles on screen.

    Love is the heartbeat of the universe,
    mysterious, altering,
    the cross and delight of my heart.



    She was American born, but her ancestry was from an area in eastern Thrace which some reports say was settled by Minoans.

    House of the Ladies fresco...


    I always imagine her strong boned face as Clytemnestra, however, or Electra, or, indeed, as Medea, whom she played.

    Pasolini hovered over her face for seconds on end.

    I saw La Triviata last week for a second time at the Met Opera House. Definitely one of the best operas, ever!

    Serendipity. This song which references the River Jordan showed up in my youtube feed. It's a fabulous song from the Appalachian mountains, home to a huge Scots/Irish migration. It appears in the new "1917" movie.



    As a lover of opera who can forget "Va Pensiero"? Singing about one's nostalgia for the River Jordan while languishing in captivity near the "rivers of Babylon".

    The English subtitles are on screen. It's the Muti version in "Casa Nostra". :)

    Like the song. Also "really" like the lead singer's hair. :)

    From around that time this is my favorite song. It was my bride and groom dance song at my wedding. Still LOVE it.



    This was also absolutely huge: American Pie. Still listen to this one too.

    Roberta Flack is wonderful. She's a diva. A complete artist. Your performances and recordings are a celebration of good taste. Ian Gillan is the lead singer of Deep Purple. Today he doesn't have that many hairs anymore, at the age of 74:




    Don McLean’s American Pie. Wonderful :)

    Thanks, Duarte.

    It was hair nostalgia. :) That was my hair for years, just darker. I loved that period for hair; just wash it and go.

    Fortunately, women don't lose their hair to the extent men do, although it does get a bit thinner.

    Another one I listen to all the time. I adore her and listen to her all the time. (Not Brazilian Portuguese subtitles, but I still could read 90% of it. :))

    k.d.lang is one of my favorite singers "ever". She can sing the blues as well as the greats of the past, country, pop, you name it. It's such a damn shame, in my opinion, that she hasn't had more success. I think part of it may be that people can't get over the way she presents herself.

    The album Shadowland is one that I listen to all the time.

    This is a blues song that she just "kills" imo.




    A country one...she can put so much pain and despair in her voice no matter what she sings...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Uxx8DshRE8

    Live, without warming up or rehearsing with the orchestra...Roy Orbison's "Crying". Such an incredible gift.

    50 years of metal.

    remember this album?


    The end of Hippie era.
    the dawn of Metal
    the music of depression as the 'drug mutant' Ozzy used to call it.
    (Btw, the late mutated one has nothing to do with previous I think)

    E se domani: Raphael Gualazzi and Simona Molinari. Why on earth isn't Simona Molinari more popular in Italy. She has a wonderful voice, imo. I like almost everything she does. She's also lovely to look at...

    In the last 2 years, I make it a point to check out Italian Folk Music. My favorite TV Show is Commissario Montalbano, The Sicilian Detective (Polizia) created by the Sicilian Writer Andrea Camilleri [RIP as he passed away last summer). The Montalbano shows (Young Montalbano as well as Commissario Montalbano) introducted my to Olivia Sellerio who sings many of the Montalbano Soundtracks. I would say her music is in the tradition of Sicilian Folk music. I also like listening to the classical folk music of Southern Italy. The Neapolitan ones (Come Facette Mamette, Funiculi Funicula and O Sardato innamarato) are the closest ones that rival the Sicilian ones (e.g. Vittz na Crozza, Ciuri Ciuri) in my opinion, maybe slightly better. I have also followed this beautiful young couple from Calabria who play traditional Southern Italy Tarnatella muisic at festivals and restaurants in Southern Italy. They did a video on the ferry to Messina and played folk music on it. There names are Fortunato and Valentina (the word Bella does not do her justice).

    Salento: Bravo! I need to check canta Marlissa's version out. There is the this Sicilian Folk choir that has a concert they did that was done by tele regina I think it is that is on youtube. They do a very good version of Ciuri Ciuri and Viti na Crozza.
