  1. Merry Christmas to all the bad kids Lenny & Squiggy - The Jolly Fat Man Stan Freberg - Nuttin’ For Christmas
  2. I'm not entirely convinced that she was as horrible as her reputation. There are a lot of competing egos in the world of opera, it's all part of the fun. But, maybe I have a blind spot because I love her singing so much. I'm a Diva! (I'm good, and I know it), so get out of the way. Wonderful. Of course, one can push this 'Diva' bull$hit only so far before becoming an insufferable pain in the a$$. The trick is to know how far. ...still Michael Praetorius - Es ist ein Ros`entsprungen (Kathleen Battle) Shigeru Umebayashi - Lovers - Mei and Jin (Kathleen Battle) Best wi
  3. I have no objections to hunting. If needs be I would kill to maintain my life and the lives of my loved ones. However, 'Trophy hunting' I find disgusting and offensive. There are several so-called hunters of my acquaintance, and I find they share some common characteristics. Firstly; a total lack of empathy for the feelings and pain of others (Humans or animals), and their need to impress, to gain some kind of approval - Beneath the surface they are actually very weak and afraid. I cannot stand to be near these people. Animals are neither good nor evil, only humans have that choice. An
  4. Back in the 1970's I was into progressive rock and 'Disco' was beneath my contempt. I finally 'grew up' and realized that this was good music. Loved the Isley Brothers, they had a string of great records in the 70's. Isley Brothers - Harvest for the World Best wishes Metairie Road
  5. Happens every time I drink Guinness; got to have my sweet ladies sing Irish ballads to me. Nanci Griffith & The Chieftains - Red Is The Rose https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvS8KkzKTjQ Loreena Mckennitt - As I Roved Out Judy Collins - Wild Mountain Thyme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdockGIFkck]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdockGIFkck Best wishes Metairie Road
  6. Ann Miller in that green and plaid dress in 'On The Town'. She looks fabulous. Regards
  7. Oh dear, looks like someone got out of the wrong side of the bed this morning. Never mind. this'll cheer you up. Renee Fleming with her wonderful version of Korngold's 'Marietta's Lied' Enrique Iglesias - Bailando What a wonderful top 40 song (970 million hits on youtube), makes me feel young just watching it. Best wishes Metairie Road
  8. faceinthecrowd - Sounds like an interesting CD. I didn't know the Boss could play the cello. A new departure for him, he'll be doing opera next. DownGoesFrazier - 'A Girl Like You'. Great song. Edwyn does David Bowie almost as good as David Bowie. Best wishes Metairie Road
  9. Lovely pictures Jake. What an amazingly beautiful world we live on. It's a shame more people don't understand that fact, or don't care. Best wishes Metairie Road
  10. movieman1957, I own the CD "Ten Easy Pieces" but it's not a CD I listen to a whole lot. I still prefer to listen to his songs performed by more talented singers. I don't say this to diminish his amazing talent as a songwriter - I wish I had such a talent. His singing skills and mine are about the same however. My listening pleasures are all over the place at the moment. Who cares about genre? If it's good, it's good. Duke Ellington said something along those lines in an interview, but I've forgotten the exact quote. A lovely Reggae version of my favorite Grateful Dead song. Israel
  11. FRANK--OHIO. I love Cyndi Lauper but I'm not sure her body of work is sufficient to get her into the R&R Hall of Fame. I remember watching mesmerized the first time I saw her video 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' on MTV (My God, thirty years ago). I think that was the last time I watched MTV. Here are my nominees. Criminally neglected thus far (IMO). Burt Bacharach and Hal David in the songwriting (non-performing) category. Dionne Warwick - Do You Know the Way to San Jose Jimmy Webb, same category. Great songwriter but not the best performer of his own songs, his voice was fl
  12. Jean Redpath has passed away. My Jean Redpath CD's are my most precious. From a lovely poem by Violet Jacob Jean Redpath - The Wild Geese Would love to go to one of the musical wonders of the world - The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. But trips to Scotland are outside my budget. I may have to explore some crowdfunding options. The Massed Pipes and Drums - Edinburgh Military Tattoo Best wishes Metairie Road
  13. FRANK--OHIO, welcome back. Probably my favorite Dwight Yoakam song is his version of - Dwight Yoakam - Suspicious Minds A pretty lady with a Rickenbacker always makes my day. Mary Chapin Carpenter - He thinks, he'll keep her Mary Chapin Carpenter - The Moon and St Christopher Best wishes Metairie Road
  14. Sapphire and Steel "All irregularities will be handled by the forces controlling each dimension. Transuranic heavy elements may not be used where there is life. Medium atomic weights are available: Gold, Lead, Copper, Jet, Diamond, Radium, Sapphire, Silver and Steel. Sapphire and Steel have been assigned." So began one of the best Supernatural/SciFi TV series ever produced. Originally conceived as a late afternoon childrens TV series in the UK. It ran from 1979 to 1982. It had low production values, a minimal budget, cheap sets, cheesy electronic music and a few lousy special effects that w
