Date night for wifey and I last night. Fantastic evening. Had a wonderful dinner and went to see Jesus Christ Superstar at Thousand Oaks. My favorite Broadway performance of all time. Mrs. GQBlues looked her incredibly best AGAIN!!!

The only wrinkle in the evening was JC will never be JC unless you see it with the original 1973 cast of Ted Neely (JC), Carl Anderson (Judas) and Yvonne Elliman (Mary Magdalene). Here's Neely's 'Gethsamane' performance in NY 2006...

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

Sandro, do you remember this?  We used to listen to Joe Dassin in school French lessons -

No, never heard it before. We did not hear much French music after Edith Piaf, 'Existentialists' like Juliette Greco and Yves Montand and later Dalida, Charles Aznavour, Sylvie Vartan and such.

In 1993 this was a 'summer hit' here, too:

We listen to a great deal of Bach at home.  The better half's favourite composer. :)  I love Mozart, but he doesn't.


I ran across this and enjoyed it -

A song from about 1839 ;D, connected with my recent interests in things nautical:


I believe Irish Step dancing was the precursor of Tip-tap dancing:

My guess the Riverdance number is from the 80's ~ amazing!  :clapping:

As for songs about sailing there is the following:





than again there is also



That should keep Commodore Sandro busy!

Actually it was somewhat later ;):
Quote
Riverdance was first performed during the seven-minute interval of the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest at the Point Theatre in Dublin on 30 April 1994.

Later lead dancer Michael Flatley left Riverdance and created the Lord of the Dance and Feet of Flames shows:

In May 1989, Flatley set a Guinness Book world record for tapping speed at 28 taps per second, and subsequently broke his own record in 1998 with 35 taps per second :o.

Sorry, but no human can move their feet that fast!  In any case, how could you possibly count them?

You are quite right, I was misled by Wikipedia >:(:

I removed that entry 8).

The real Guinness winners are:

The most taps in one minute was 1,163 and was achieved by Anthony Morigerato (USA) at Eleanor's School of Dance in Albany, New York, USA, on 23 June 2011.

The most flamenco taps in one minute (male) is 1,317 and was achieved by Israel Vivancos (Spain), of the flamenco dance company "Los Vivancos", in Madrid, Spain, on 2 November 2012.

Again, though, that's more than 20 taps per second!  I repeat my earlier post:

You should ask Guinness ;). Acoustic interferometry, maybe?

Lord of the Dance, based on a Shaker hymn.



This is a church + chorus version.

This is the version of M. Flately
