"we'll meet again" I believe was used in Kubrick Film "Dr Strangelove", my father actually mentioned this song to me
and Edith Piaf (sp?)
lucky SOB, frostbite followed by gangrene kept him off the front after the Bulge
my father spoke Yiddish fluently, and learned to speak fluent German in two weeks (I kid you not!)
interpreters were in short supply, he got attached to Army GQ interrogating Nazi prisoners from Jan 45 until April 45
was transferred to London to write a long intelligence assessment
when VE Day happened
Dad spent the evening pub crawling with some Wrens, he never told me what happened, but I can guess...

Wifey and I recently saw Bohemian Rhapsody and it sparked a lot of memories for both us. Queen was one of my wife’s all time fav band, and as for me, well, I’ve always regarded Freddy Mercury as one of the very best rock and roll vocalist ever. 

Lots of great songs and certainly lots of awesome tunes. So as a tribute to Freddy, I’d like post the very last song he recorded before he left. He was recording this song in the studio and it wasn’t finished yet when he tire. He decided to go home with the intent of finishing the vocals another day.

He never made it back....

You can hear guitarist Brian finishing the last verse of

Mother Love

In case any of you wondered what the heck Bohemian Rhapsody, the song, was about. Wonder no more...

The literal version.

Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.2 op.44 in G major


I particularly like its 3rd movement Allegro con fuoco - starting at about 33' above - for its brilliant gaiety and melodic simplicity (a B-E-G-B-D scale of semiquavers).

This movement is in the form of a Rondo, as most classical symphonies and concertos last movements are. As the name implies, it is a circular alternation of 3-4 themes in a pattern like A-B-A'-C-A''-D-A''', the A being the above melody.

BTW, for those who might intend to start wandering into the incredibly beautiful world of classical music, I suggest to start with Russian composers like Tchaikovski and Rimski-Korsakoff, as I did 60+ years ago :D.

I agree. Very talented and creative with their new sound. If they haven't already they should tour the United States.

We'll be hosting a few friends at the Staples next week to pay respect and celebrate a great artist and human being on his 'Farewell Tour', Mr. Reginald Kenneth Dwight. From that Troubadour night to generational trip...

There will be Mona Lisa and her madhatters, a madman across the water, a tiny dancer with an island girl accompanied by a rocketman. And of course, Nikita...


Thank you, Sir Elton Hercules John, for a lifetime of music that still spring moments in time.

I always thought this was a US Civil War song.

Well, it turns out it originally was an Irish song, some 100 years earlier :D:

Why do you think so man Americans come to Ireland ?

They are searching for heritage ?))

Seriously, though..... great melodies have been copied by the US for years ...!
1/

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45382485


"Was God Save the Queen played at John McCain's funeral?"

2/ Britain's Mary Hopkin wins Eurovision with "those were the days"...produced by Paul McCartney, copyrighted by US writer Gene Raskin  - he copyrighted his English Lyrics and the music - which was actually written by Boris Fomin as  "Dorogoi dlinnoyu" -Дорогой длинною" -  "By the long road"..


I have fond memories of being in Cyprus in 2003 at a dinner party and I was asked to sing a well known British song amongst the company of FSU folk

I only got out a few words of "Those Were the Days" before met with a combination of laughter and outrage !!

I was informed it was an ancient 'Russian Gypsy song' and that the British were 'thieves' )))

I always knew Teddy P was the singer for Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, but didn’t know the sinister story behind it until last night. ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now!’ Alright...

Anyway, from arguably one of the very few sexiest man that ever existed ( other than me of course), with a voice to match. Here’s  one of his song that is a great fit for current situation in the US today....

OK she's gained weight but can play terrifically.

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.

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?
