    Have you heard the double album he did with Anne Sofie von Otter, called Love Songs? It is wonderful music. They really complement each other beautifully.

    This song always brings tears to my Gran's eyes... It took me a long time to understand why... Although the song is essentially one of hope there is an undercurrent of heart-breaking sadness as you can somehow sense the anxiety of the times in which this song was heard... Mothers worried about their sons... Wives worried about their husbands...Children worried about their fathers... I'm glad than "then" is no longer "now"... but I do realize that in many ways "then" will always be "now"...

    ... I know no one will believe me and will always be convinced that I'm just taking the p*** out of everyone but I find this to be an incredibly moving performance...

    This performance reminds me of two essential life lessons...

    1. Don't make the mistake of judging someone by their appearance...

    2. Ridicule and mockery are not desirable character traits to possess...

    The 1:18 mark and the 2:30 mark always and I do mean always make my eyes water but you'll never catch a Canadian lad like me admitting to something like that on a forum like this in front of people like you!

    I once asked my mon (the Ph.D wielding music teacher) why this song seemed so sad...

    She replied - "Because the person that she is singing about will never return and she knows it..."

    Vera Lynn is still alive at the age of 100.

    I was listening to Cesar Franck´s symphony in d minor:
