By far the best Elvis impersonator I've ever heard: http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=G8fjHJbF9Es Was from a week on Letterman where Letterman celebrated a bunch of Elvis impersonators.

some of my favorite musical pieces

This link takes you to "Top Tracks of Enya." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0NoHN1TU5I&list=AL94UKMTqg-9CxvLgtPVLEHEK_wTvvFbqd Lots of beautiful graphics. Enjoy your respite.

I found this delicious web site. It's a juke box with favorite songs from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, etc. etc. Now, when you go to the site, you don't have to click on the year you graduated from high school. In fact, unless you want to start getting a bunch of pop-ups or spam mail, I'd suggest you not click on anything but the years you want to listen to. But it's fun to listen to some real "oldies." http://upchucky.com/JukeCity/1956/juke.htm

"Here I am Lord" -- http://www.openmyeyeslord.net/ThisJourney.htm

And here's a wonderful link from sister-in-law Jeanine who lives in Colorado. It's a Happy New Year song, but even though January is nearly done, you'll still love the photos of the cute little animals and penguins. I'd still love to know how those buildings on top of those ledges in what looks like the Alps got built. I know, brick by brick, but that's a long way up there. Even though it's right at the timber line which is usually about 10,000 feet, how'd they do that? And there's that beautiful voice of Sissel Kyrkjebo. Best description of her voice: pure clarity. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x91rBzNKvlc

Here's Sissel singing You Raise Me Up. This song always reminds me of Quint because he spends time with me. It's always been that way and I do the same for him. Couple who do not prioritize time with each other get into serious trouble. And that's a fact. Remember your vows: love, honor and cherish. Spending time with each other bonds those three elements together so powerfully: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoGuN8q7zgA&feature=related

And now you can thrill to the sound of Placido Domingo and Sissel singing Ave Maria. Outstanding! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZC82DYro1c&feature=related

Well, it's not Christmas either but here's a most magnificent version of Still Nacht (Silent Night) performed by Placido Domingo, Sissel Kyrkjebo and Charles Aznavour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw1yhClOsGU&feature=related


This is from the Shanghai World Expo Closing Ceremony Concert. It's fantastic, but then, who wouldn't like the way Ode to Joy is woven into the musical piece. What I'd like to know is what the musicians are sitting on. http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=6HfDeTVpinU&vq=medium

And here's a fantastic Amazing Grace, complete with bagpipes. I can't hear this song without shedding a tear or two. Guess it's because so many loved ones have been buried with this song played. Everytime I hear it, I remember all the loved ones I've lost.  http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=6HfDeTVpinU&vq=medium

And Amazing Grace with its beautiful, prayerful lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=6HfDeTVpinU&vq=medium

Here's I Dreamed A Dream by Susan Boyle. What a voice that's been "hiding" in a church choir all these years. Now she's a world treasure.  http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=6HfDeTVpinU&vq=medium



He's been called the last living romantic -- Demis Russox. Listen to him sing Good Bye My Love Good Bye: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nZKMm-nOsc&feature=related


This video has some of his musical biography from his Greek heritage to being a transplant to Egyptian culture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UJXgmPqAE4&NR=1

Singing When Forever Is Gone  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIrFollH3rU&NR=1

Take a little time out from the passion of Russox and watch this last passionate scene from Dirty Dancing. Wow! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpmILPAcRQo&feature=fvw

Back to Roussox: Let It Be Me -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmxu-R1SEk8&feature=related

Singing Summer Wine -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_jOc6zu1Kc&feature=related

Singing My Friend The Wind -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7-12iJ8xTM&feature=related

Singing I Miss You -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvQL0uaZiwo&feature=related

Singing Lovely Lady of Arcadia -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6AMl5PeLUM&feature=related

And finally, a song that seems to have been written for him -- and sung like you've never heard it before -- Silent Night -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CePbdvlDYx8&NR=1




Beautiful version of Here I am, Lord with a powerpoint presentation. Turn on your volume and enter this peaceful place. Thank you, John and Sherre from Wichita for sending this link: http://www.openmyeyeslord.net/ThisJourney.htm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5ddoyfn6g4">On My Father's Side</a>  by the Barn Again Group.  I've not heard it before, and believe it's exceptional. This same group, The Barn Again Gang also offers The Disciple's Prayer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xWCIYgZFhg&feature=related
Another of my favorites is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfpK6cNPF7Y This is Mary Did You Know and it's set on a background of graphics from The Passion.

If you have never heard anyone play a leaf -- yes, a real leaf -- then prepare to be amazed. Here's someone playing Whispering Hope on just a plain old leaf: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6dTeQwf488&feature=related

And Amazing Grace: http://www.youtube.com/watch#v=wQCxA3FeDSg&feature=related

And The Old Rugged Cross, which always reminds me of my father's funeral: http://www.youtube.com/watch#v=QbkeF09qpF0&feature=related

Here's Sandy Patti singing How Great Thou Art  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8BumYH8n1k

The following are Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee. I'm writing Christmas verses for this melody and it helps greatly to have the music handy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdX-Q_R8QbQ&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fkvyYNsjPc

And here's Leonard Cohen from his performance in London, singing Democracy [Is Coming to the USA] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHI9BTpGkp8 love it love it love it!

Cohen's Dance Me to the End of Love:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki9xcDs9jRk&NR=1

And here's Cohen singing I'm Your Man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r24_T-HOcyg&feature=related

What an absolutely soothing voice. Incredible. He reminds me of Franklin McCormick. McCormick owned the night between midnight and dawn in Chicago in the early 60s. He'd recite poetry, play love ballads and just talk. Leonard Cohen could read the telephone book and sound passionate.

 

And whoever said that there haven't been any good Christmas songs written in this century hasn't heard Travis Cottrell sing In The First Light. This is amazing: http://www.freedomslighthouse.com/2009/12/travis-cottrell-sings-christmas-song-in.html 
Tis the season to be jolly. And what could be more festive than this light show set to the music of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Wizards in Winter?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cXgASLciXc

and this festive beauty, Christmas in Sarajevo, complete with a little girl's fantasy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alIcwofkrS8&feature=fvw

Okay, so I'm an Elvis fan. Make no mistake about it. This video was sent to me by my cousins Al and Mark:  http://release.theplatform.com/content.select?pid=5mCzgDf_lCZ3uKBDkKLY2_dqmD4_S0yF&UserName=UnknownAmazing It shows the Elvis Presley that captured the hearts of me and a zillion other teenagers before he got into all that stuff he messed around with. This was the real Elvis, not the chunky Elvis who took pot shots at TVs in his hotel room. And Martina? Well, she was about ten years old when Elvis died. Martina McBride was born in 1966; Elvis died in 1977. Good high tech duo!

Enjoy.

Like cello? What's not to like, right? Well, here's a real treat -- Yo-Yo Ma plays Bach's Suite of Solo Cello No. 1 in G. And get this. As if this weren't wonderful enough, it's a tribute to Salvador Dali. So you get to see some artistry in two different genres. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JysJGTUASrQ&feature=related

And here's a real treat: Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman playing together -- A. Dvorak Humoresque No. 7: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScSCILXXLnM&feature=related

Remember the Eagles? Here they are with one of my favorities, Hotel California: http://www.angelfire.com/ak2/intelligencerreport/eagles_hotel.html I must have been naive because I never knew that this was purported to be about drugs and stuff. Who would have known? It just sounded like a good song with a good beat and back in those days, you could understand the words, even if they meant something else.

Here's Andre Rieu and Riverdance/Lord of the Dance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lpvvmdw6feE&feature=related

Watch what the fuss is all about with Susan Boyle's audition at "Britain's Got Talent" as she performs I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserable. -- Amazing. Just amazing! Do yourself a favor and watch this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxPZh4AnWyk

Here's Celtic Thunder with a beautiful rendition of The Mountains of Mourne: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48-_zQLljYI

Here's Don McLean singing And I Love You So: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qog65XHM-ok&feature=related. And it's a very young Don McLean, I might add.

Don McLean presents an especially poignant version of The Mountains of Mourne: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEZIKSm78k8&feature=related

And if you're a fan of Vincent VanGogh, here's Don McLean singing a tribute entitled Vincent. It's the song Starry Starry Night sung against the backdrop of some of VanGogh's paintings. If memory serves me right, VanGogh painted 1800 canvases, only sold one in his lifetime. His brother Theo supported Vincent all his life. Enjoy! Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dipFMJckZOM&feature=related

First, here's the link: http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=2539741

Now I'll tell you that it's one of the most interesting pieces of music you may ever hear. There are musicians recording the song Stand by Me simultaneously in many places around the world. At the same time. Notice that they are all wearing ear pieces so they can hear each other recording. I was amazed.
