I always thought this was a US Civil War song.....it turns out it originally was an Irish song.
Oh yes ...'Johnny We hardly Knew Ya' became the title of a JFK memorial book by David Powers and Kenneth O'Donnell, in collaboration with journalist Joe McCarthy. I have it in paperback.

Re: Music I love.. RIP Dick Dale -Surfer King

Dick Dale died this week at 81. If you hear his stuff you will think "Oh.. he did that song?"
Glimpse his wiki page...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Dale   He was an innovator.



Remember 'Pulp Fiction'? What do you call a Quarter Pounder in France?

Actually, Perfidia (here with a cha-cha-cha rhythm) was originally written by the Mexican composer Alberto Domìnguez in 1940.

I am no conservative when it comes to music (as I get a healthy dose of Public Enemy and N.W.A. every day) but I really am a sucker for romantic soul music and songs like this:

RENZO ARBORE AND HIS ORCHESTRA ITALIANA


Years ago (2008:
http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=6634.msg126605#msg126605) I posted on the subject of this original Italian radio/TV personality. Born in Foggia in 1937, he attended University in Naples and was fascinated by the local musical scene, which led him to found in 1991 L'Orchestra Italiana to popularise Neapolitan songs in widely acclaimed concerts in Europe, North and South America, Russia, China, Australia, etc. here playing a classic: Luna Rossa (Red Moon, composed in 1950  by V. De Cresceanzo whose son is the solo singer), with lyrics:

Mentioning the movie Diva reminded me of this piece, reminiscent of Michel Legrand.

Love most of Leonard Cohen's works.  This is a particular favourite.  I've also linked Gary Beacom, a famous Canadian skater's routine to this piece.  Beacom is a "skater's skater", as his edges are unsurpassed.  If you watch at around the 52 second mark, those edges are exceptionally difficult to perform.
