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).

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

Bach was no pioneer; his style was not influenced by any past or contemporary century.
  He was completion and fulfillment in itself, like a meteor which follows its own path.
