    Smooth

    Ladies and Gents,

    Now for something mellow. Groove on this for awhile.

    Soulful Strut/Young-Holt Unlimited

    And then crank it up a little. "People Got to be Free" by The Young Rascals

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ntcMjYL7hc&feature=fvst


    One of the best Young Rascals songs.

    I've Been Lonely Too Long

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HXVt...yer_detailpage


    Gentle but exciting, luxurious jazz. Lush. I really like that word.

    Andre Previn

    Like Young

    A beautiful song and a replacement for Errol Garner's version of the same tune.

    The Shadow of Your Smile

    Barbra Streisand

    And Errol Garner's own composition, Misty. (12/15/13) Errol Garner was one of the most magnificent pianists who ever lived. So there).

    And for any of you that like classical - I saw this live. At the middle of the piece, I heard musicians behind me. What the hell? They were in the balcony, playing to the stage musicians. It was an exhilarating experience.

    A beautiful, evocative work. Roman legions returning through the Pines of Rome. The main theme is haunting and the ending is very stirring.

    There are many, many, magnificently beautiful classical pieces. It is silly and a waste of time to compare and to say one is better than another. But this I will say; there is no work more beautiful than this one.

    Try it. You might like it.

    Pines Of Rome

    Lastly, this is Anton Dvorak's Symphony 'From The New World'. It is only a small part of the complete piece. He came from Europe to see the country for himself and his impressions are expressed thruout the work. There are flavors of Indian music, western influences, children playing games and more that reflect what he saw. The song 'Going Home' used often in movies comes from this symphony.

    If you like it, listen to all of it and think about his adventures while hearing the aforementioned hints.

    These links are only excerpts (Pines is part of a larger work).The complete Dvorak symphony is available on YT - and well worth listening to.

    A beautiful, evocative piece. Magnificent. Roman legions returning to Rome through the Pines of Rome. Stirring. Imagine the pageantry!

    I did like it. It reminded me of something.

    One of the most interesting things I've ever encountered professionally was a visit to Cirque de Soleil in Quebec. One can only imagine the need for custom fabrication required for their sets.

    I repeat myself about music, perhaps. But classical, especially if you know why it was written, can be very stirring. Beautiful, sad, exciting, and evocative. The Pines Of Rome, The Symphony From The New World and countless others can move you to experience deep emotion.

    Nothing like it - if you are introspective and get into it.

    And carthartic, sometimes, too.

    One more. The Moldau, is a river in Europe. Its flow is slow, fast and turbulent in places.

    The piece evokes the movement, the feeling, the essence of the subject. It's beautiful.

    Julie - I had that one pegged. Not to bust your bubble, but I'm a transplant from PA in 1992. I still tell the kids about "Down on Main Steet" though. They're Michiganders all the way (much to their dad's dismay, but hey, the chicks leave the nest.....)

    Here's a band from SE PA I'd like to share with you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wA1m1hc48X4

    You're getting pretty good at this. Resist the temptation to join in on politics lol.
