    Recently listened to Messiaen's Vignt Regards. The cumulative impression listening to the piece in its entirety leaves is very moving.

    When I'm not listening to classical music I'm usually (not always) listening to soothing ambient music, often while doing other things. I like it and it works that way, for me.

    Max Corbacho from Spain makes very pretty stuff.

    This is the English National Opera's Cheryl Cole... wait for the 59 second mark and you'll see why Cheryl will probably need a hip replacement sooner rather than later... Why anyone would worship at the altar of Maria Callas when you have a talent like Cheryl's is completely beyond me...

    Despite whatever talent she may or may not have (depending on who you ask) Maria Callas could never and I must stress "never" even on her best day (and even when she was as thin as a whippet much less the "plus size" days) be able to leap off a platform and then break out into a beautifully choreographed song and dance routine like this without missing a beat...

    Talent speaks volumes....

    This is Timothy B. Schmidt of Poco/The Eagles fame being backed up by (from left to right) -

    Timmy Cappello, Todd Rundgren, Nils Lofgren, Canada's very own Burton Cummings (of the Guess Who), Dave Edmunds, and Joe Walsh...

    I don't like to brag (actually I do but that is neither here nor there) but I can do an absolutely spot-on karaoke version of this tune... my Timothy B. Schmidt impression is the talk of the Vancouver karaoke scene and is much admired and envied...

    At the 1:56 mark you'll see Jackson Browne step up take his solo and drop it after two lines when he realizes that he cant' sing the song in the key that they're playing it in and so he hands it off to John Fogarty who just takes it and blasts off... Bruce Springsteen kicks it off, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder takes it, then Jackson Browne who punts it to John Fogarty formerly of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame...

    And hey, get this - there's a guy playing a harp which technically makes this "Classical Music" which gives the lie to the all too frequent accusation that I've never actually written anything about classical music on this classical music forum... guess this proves ya wrong, eh?

    ...

    and cranking 'em out... I've added this Australian band in a transparent attempt to get more of the forum's Aussies to start giving me more "Likes"... There's been a curious shortage of "Likes" on my posts from Oz (and every where else on the planet come to think of it) even though as a Canadian we're practically cousins... I wonder who the Brits think are nuttier? Canadians or Australians... Being an actual Canadian I may be biased but I would probably vote "Australians" as being the nuttier of the two but hey, Aussies don't let that last comment affect your decision to start being a little more generous with the "Likes", eh?
