Feel like sharing a little music with you folks today. This is Chicago's "Color My World" from 1970. As I've gotten older I've come to appreciate music I think more than I did when I was young and going to concerts. Hope you find a little peace and enjoy this one.

I've only once had the opportunity to attend an IHD meet up in Las Vegas, and that was back in 2011.  I remember hearing "Pumped up Kicks" in the lobby of the hotel at which we were staying, and it has stayed with me ever since.  It's a catchy tune, and because I heard it while visiting with this special group of people, it brings back nice memories.  It's not really a great work of art...

I'm posting about this because I've come across a really clever cover by "Hildegard von Blingin" (if you know of Hildegard von Bingen, you'll get the joke).

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

Lastly, I think my favorite song of all time is Dolly Parton's "Jolene", and here is what Hildegard von Bligin' did with it.

... Sometimes life deals us terrible blows and as a result we despair.
When my “two little fighters” first failed, I arrived in the nearest A&E-Hospital in a deep coma. It must have been January/February 1971 and when I was discharged it was late summer when my “two little fighters” were “standing on their own feet again” to continue  and try their hardest to build-up again.
Of course I was crest-fallen about my future and all the big plans I had and then, all of a sudden the music of Ludwig van Beethoven (17th December 1770 – 26th March 1827 entered my life and I discovered his revolutionary wonderful thoughts, against all the odds, put into music and it assisted my build-up, mainly because I really felt understood. His life was unbelievable difficult. At first the gifts of the young boy were exploited by his alcohol-needy parents. After that, many patrons exploited him for their social prestige etc. and all his compositions are a mirror of disappointments, feelings, anger, visions, loneliness, and so many more different thoughts, all expressed in a very understandable way.
Thanks to You Tube a very true film about Beethoven can be watched : “Eroica” : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVnfEuCvBGA
... plus, if and when I feel I could do with a little encouragement, I love to listen to : Beethoven/Egmont Overture/Karajan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ-CehMCB9U

Did you know that "it was speculated" that Beethoven may have had Sarcoidosis, liver and kidney failure? His story is interesting. I think his love of music and humanity gave him the will to push on despite his illnesses.

Oh yes!  I've indeed seen "the twins".  As a matter of fact, I think somewhere in this thread I posted their reaction to Jolene.  I'm always impressed when people, especially young people, step outside their musical comfort zones.  I heard one of them being interviewed on WGN radio here in Chicago.  I was a little disappointed to hear him being a bit, well, dull.  I was surprised.  But perhaps he was tired because he had been talking to SO many news outlets.

" Noble, romantic and awe-inspiring: The Rhine River has many facades and has been admired by travellers for centuries. The Rhine flows through six countries : Switzerland, Principality of Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, France and the Netherlands before flowing into the North Sea at Rotterdam.

Victor Hugo called it a "fine river."

English landscape painters presented a portrait of "Rhine Romanticism" to the world.

On the Upper Rhine, the Nibelungs' treasure was hidden, on the Middle Rhine the Lorelei caused ships to capsize.

The Rhine also forms the border between Germany and France. It is a European River and a crucial transport route from the metropolises on the Lower Rhine all the way to the North Sea. "

 ....Many years ago I watched an interesting documentary about the Rhine River - or, as "he" is called on the Continent "Father Rhine" ...  and towards the end of the documentary, where "Father Rhine" flows into the North Sea the following song by Vangelis was played and it left the viewer with a mysterious feeling ... about nature ... history etc.

But do they really pour blue dye into the Danube?

If you ask anyone in any of the beautiful cafe-houses in Vienna (meeting point of composers of music and composers of letters, books etc.), they'll assure you, that the blue Danube is the most beautiful river in the whole world and, of course, such a natural beauty does not need any enhancement at all.
Of course, there might be some non-believers around and they might claim, that the Danube might need some enhancement, but of course, that is not necessarily the truth and strongly disputed by the Viennese.

Adding to that, it also should be pointed out, that the Viennese provide a very tasty "Muskateller"-wine, (Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains), which might turn -  as I have been told - after the second glass - "things" into your favourite colour, which, in Vienna, is of course, the most beautiful Blue Danube ...
A similar phenomena - as I have been told - might happen near Loch Ness in Scotland, when you leave the Pub after a first or second glass of their most famous whiskey ... when Nessie might come along and kindly accompany you on your way home ....  ;)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBPUundF1dA

P.S. I do hope you can listen to the Blue Danube Waltz and watch the accompanying film without some of these terrible commercials ... :waving;

As a teenager I first studied at College some of the translated works of Ernest Hemingway (1899 – 1961) and I remember being very impressed and could not wait to read his thoughts without translation and in his language. Reading more about him as a writer, it also impressed me to learn, how his writings improved during his time in Paris at the home of his personal mentor Gertrude Stein (1874 – 1946), who also acted as an “advocate of the avant-garde”, and who, if I remember correctly, assisted him to “cut shorter sentences” to “create” more of an impact on the reader.
One of my favourite short-stories “The Snows of Kilimanjaro”, was later also visually developed into a most interesting film-adaption starring Gregory Peck, Susan Hayward and Ava Gardener (1952). The ending is not quite fitting the original story by Hemingway, but is still very impressive in terms of the emotions involved.
Because of the great success of the short-story and movie, the following song was eventually created.

I recently watched a documentary about the Bee Gees. I must admit that when I was younger I only related them to the disco era and Saturday Night Fever. Now, as an older person and having read up on them, I appreciate their music, talent and story even more. I never knew just how far back their careers went and how hard they worked at it. And I never knew just how many hits they wrote for other performers. These gentlemen were truly truly talented. It's sad that we are without Maurice, Robin and Andy but we still have Barry! And he's got a new album!

Love, love these guys! So energetic, fun and sexy! This is from their 1989 concert recently shown again on PBS.



Solo performance by Barry

 https://youtu.be/K0GjEKVbUSU

And this is the same song (Nights On Broadway) when they did it in 1975 on The Midnight Special. They remained consistent with their sound and flawless. So much fun!

sorry about the edits...

Sorry folks...but here's the links to the Bee Gees in concert. First one is from 1975 and the second from 1989. They sounded the same every performance, flawless. Love them! Their music is fun and full of life and love. I appreciate them more now than I did when I was younger. Don't know why that is but I'm glad to have rediscovered them.

We watched the movie Military Wives last night on a dvd from the library. It’s a feel good story of a UK military base where the wives setup a singing social club well their husbands/partners were deployed.

Looks to be streaming on Hulu.
