What music are you listening to?

They are great, they still have good songs, like this:

Burnett and Rutherford-Weeping Willow Tree


Goodness, I'm surprised...do they play Burnett and Rutherford in Serbia? Or are you a Serbian American who somehow developed an interest in traditional American music?

I wouldn't think so. Burnett and Rutherford are pretty world-renowned. "Man of Constant Sorrow" is one of their songs, covered by many recording artists. Easy to find. Their version of Man of Constant Sorrow is extremely rare to find though.


This one is pretty good. And a little funny.
 
Sad that nobody has commented on Blind Uncle Gaspard:



Really interesting song. He says he has to go where nobody can ever see him. And some things about his cat. Blind Uncle Gaspard is a musician I found recently; he has a lot of great songs. So sad that nobody has ever heard his music. His songs are almost like a secret. I overlooked this song at first but as someone of Cajun heritage I later found it to be quite interesting. I also had many French and French Canadian acquaintances tell me they found it quite fascinating as well.
 

Amazing song. I got a flashback to 1994 when I was a kid. Very mid-1990s sounding song. Turn the volume up all the way on your speakers, and maybe a little bit of that bass. :)

Reminds me of the 1994-1995-1996 era; before I started school. The 90s were great.

Country and American folk music is popular in Serbia. This is not due to Hollywood Western type films (although it is possible that they, among other things, in a period of time contributed to the popularization). Melodies and sounds this music, which has European and African roots, are what makes them so special and popular. Basically it is the music of the American South and the region of Appalachia. I think there are some similar cultural and other vibrations that make up that people prefer some music, no matter what they are in different parts of the world.
 
My love affair with Bach continues...appropriate for the day...

Bach's The Passion According to St. Matthew...this is perhaps my favorite recording of this piece...well, it's my favorite lately:)
 
Hebrides Overture-Mendelssohn:

 
This is still my favorite Santana song:

 
Now you have me playing associations!

Probably before your time, but does Debbie Harry ever get old?


It's not a great video...too bad there isn't a better version on youtube.

A "Maria" with a different beat and some more hip action.

A romantic "Maria" to a waltz beat from one of the greatest of American musicals:

One of my favorites...and funny...supposedly in Austria this time:

Then there's the Italian ones.
Parlami d'amore Mariu' from the Three Tenors:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHTR9kbjrg8

How beautiful you are and even more so tonight, Maria!
A starry smile shines in those blue eyes.
Even if destiny will be adverse tomorrow
tonight I'm close to you, so what's the use in sighing?

Speak to me of love Maria!
You are my whole life.
Your two blue eyes are shining,
twinkling like two stars.

Tell me this isn't an illusion
Tell me that you're all mine
Here in your heart I don't suffer anymore
Speak to me of love Maria!
I know what a pretty and red-blooded siren you are
I know that whoever looks into those blue eyes of yours gets lost
but why should I care if everyone laughs at me
better off in the bottomless whirlpool as long as I'm always with you

Speak to me of love Maria!
You are my whole life!
Your two blue eyes are shining,
twinkling like two stars.

Tell me this isn't an illusion.
Tell me that you're all mine.
Here in your heart I don't suffer anymore
Speak to me of love Maria!

Repeat.

Oi Marì...Pavarotti and Gianni Morandi, and heresy of heresies, I like Morandi's version better...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yic9YgSiM9M

Open up window!( Aràpete fenèsta).
Let Maria appear (famm' affaccià a Maria)
While I'm in the middle of the street(ca stongo mmiez' 'a via)
Hoping to see her.(speruto d''a vedè).
I don't have a moment's peace (Nun trovo n'ora 'e pace)
My nights turn into days ('A nott' 'a faccio juorno),
I'm always here (sempe pe stà ccà attuorno)
Hoping to speak to her.(speranno 'e ce parlà!)
O Maria, O Maria. (Oi Mari', oi Mari)
How much sleep I lose over you!(Quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te)
Let me sleep (Famm' addurmi)
In your embrace. (abbracciato nu poco cu te)
O Maria, O Maria (Oi Marì, oi Marì)
How much sleep I lose over you. (Quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te)
Let me sleep (Famm' addurmì),
O Maria, O Maria (Oi Marì, oi Marì)
 
Now you have me playing associations!

Used to like Blondie, Sunday girl was one of my favourites....got that simple happy flowing kind of tune that can pep up any mood.

that open the doors to so many old time favourites popular at the time.

 
And now something completely different.

Balkanic relaxing music; enjoy.

Nahhh

The most known Maria, is the Greek Maria,
Look how many play it, and in HOW MANY LANGUAGES




Bulgaria

Austria

I like it, but then I like most Greek music. :) However, nobody can compete with Ricky Martin...34 million hits and counting!

I like that too, but I could wish there were more of us still around who like "traditional" folk music.
 
Like this...in my part of Italy almost no one apart from the ninety year olds remembers the "old" music, or sings it regularly anyway. It's a little better in the south it seems to me.
