What music are you listening to?

Silly me, I didn't post the video:

Very nice Angela, nice combination. Tuscany has the ideal setting for that. Have not been so far, maybe one day in my bucket list with Florence :)
 
Linda Ronstadt-I think her music is timeless. (The hairstyles of the men in this video are a different story! :)) She had such a wonderful voice, and could sing anything, and did. She has a Nelson Riddle CD, a Mexican Mariachi type CD, has sung some Gilbert and Sullivan, and has done numerous covers of country classics.

You're No Good:

When she was still with the Stone Poneys: Different Drum.
This is an iconic song for her for many reasons, including the fact that she always went her own way, never "played the game".

Blue Bayou: (a bayou is a slow moving stream in a marsh-here in Louisiana

This is her amazing cover of "Crazy".It was through her that I first started to listen to Patsy Cline.

In honor of my favorite season, L'Autunno-Vivaldi:

Later on I might listen to Feuilles Mortes as sung by Yves Montand (born Ivo Livi in Toscana):

English translation:
Fallen leaves

Oh I would like you so much to remember
The joyful days when we were friends.
At that time, life was more beautiful
And the sun burned more than it does today.
Fallen leaves can be picked up by the shovelful.
You see, I have not forgotten...
Fallen leaves can be picked up by the shovelful,
So can memories and regrets.
And the north wind takes them
Into the cold night of oblivion.
You see, I have not forgotten
The song you used to sing me.
(chorus)
This song is like us.
You used to love me and I used to love you
And we used to live together,
You loving me, me loving you.
But life separates lovers,
Pretty slowly, noiselessly,
And the sea erases on the sand
The separated lovers' footprints.

To Autumn-John Keats
1. S[SIZE=-2]EASON[/SIZE] of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.
2.
Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,
Drows’d with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook;
Or by a cyder-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours.
3.
Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

So the Junior Eurovision is brought to Malta for the first time thanks to Gaia Cauchi who won the festival with 'The start' last year. This year representing Malta is the talented Frederica Falzon and winner of Ti lascio un Canzone with Vincenzo Carni, presented by the Italian National TV RAI 1. Her song is 'Diamonds'. It gives me the impression that it is a little more then Junior!. Simply love it.

@Maleth
Will you pretty please stop torturing me with lists of delicious cheeses? I have only been able to tolerate a nibble here and there for about ten years! In the immortal words of Jennifer Lawrence aka Tiffany in The Silver Linings Playbook, "You're Killing Me!" :LOL:

:unsure:Angela you will not believe this. I was just about going to write in your Tuscan food delights that "you're Killing me"....Im on a diet and food porn does not help!. Then I stumble into this. Hmm I only eat cheese on VERY special occasions as much as l love it, + recently I have discovered I am more and more lactose intolerant :sad-2: although I was told very hard cheeses have very little lactose :innocent:.
 
Not music, but a funny little sketch called Angry Yoga.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=BH0l4FlZT-A

That was too funny! I just loved it, Aberdeen. :LOL:

In the interests of full disclosure, I absolutely loathe yoga...I suppose because it just doesn't work for me.. So, like the lady in the video, I either start thinking about everybody and everything that has ****** me off lately, or I start making lists of everything I have to do, or I start worrying about my children, or I start gnawing at some intellectual problem like the dratted Indo-Europeans or something. :grin: Not what you're supposed to be doing...and the more they tell me to relax the madder I get!

Yes, that one seems to strike a chord with a lot of people. It's a clip from a Canadian comedy show called "This Hour Has 22 Minutes". If you look for "22 Minutes" on Youtube, there's lots of their stuff there. Not all of it makes me laugh, but some of it is really funny.
