VOLARE music video: I thought that was rather good - cleverly produced too.   :Thmbsup:
Catchy, yes. However, I never learned Italian, so I hadn't a clue as to what it was about.

Interestingly, the video's heavy use of sound synthesis rather gave the game away though as to the loss of tone of one or both of the singers' voices, but that's technology for you - one doesn't need to have a good voice, or even good range, to make a hit song - as seems to have been demonstrated by many current songsters. The earliest pronounced example that I recall being Cher some years ago, with her "Do you believe in life after love?" (or something) song.

Another Italian one, but absolutely fantastic video (Although, be warned this is not for the faint-hearted, and I probably wouldn't recommend letting kids watch it lol)

Re: Recommend some music videos to me! - Pipe-organ music.
« Reply #1365 on: April 01, 2018, 09:19 PM »
I am a bit of a pipe-organ addict. Since childhood I have always enjoyed listening to pipe-organ music, and singing alongside it was always a memorable experience in my years singing in church, school and semi-professional choirs.
Absolutely one of the most beautiful organ pieces ever composed, here is (appropriately enough for Easter time) the pipe organ for the magnificently triumphal hymn Christ The Lord Is Risen Today - here it is being played on the 1892 Johnson & Son Organ at St. Stanislaus Church:
Published on 1 Apr 2012
Saint Stanislaus Parish, Historic Polonia District, Buffalo, New York: Organist & Music Director Peter Gonciarz performs "Christ The Lord Is Risen Today" on the 1892 Johnson & Son Pipe Organ. For more information visit www.StStansBuffalo.com. (April 1, 2012).

Copied from: (3) Christ The Lord Is Risen Today, 1892 Johnson & Son Organ, St. Stanislaus Church - YouTube - <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIH3xqAHQc4>



In the video, it is played twice, the second time (starts at about 2:19mins in the middle) it shows the organist at work. Impressive skill. Just before that bit starts, the roaring of the air in the bellows (air pump) can be distinctly heard in the silence. As the organist is playing, one gets some idea of the time-lag between pressing a key and the sound issuing from the pipes.

My all-time favourite pipe organ music though would probably have to be Widor - Symphonie V, op.42 no.1 Toccata - Allegro. Here, we are indeed privileged to hear it being played by its composer: Ch. M. Widor plays his Toccata from V Symphony Op. 42 No. 1:
Published on 24 Apr 2009
Here the legendary organist plays his most-famous work, Toccata from 5th Symphony. When the recording took place, he had been already 88 years old. He many times mentioned, that Toccata was wrongly popularised, as a plain showpiece, without feeling, but with ridiculously fast tempos. Of course, here the age is a main argument, but... let's the composer speak through his music!

Copied from: (3) Ch. M. Widor plays his Toccata from V Symphony Op. 42 No. 1 - YouTube - <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8vz1D_L_OE>

Not to be forgotten is the hymn itself, Christ the Lord is Risen Today, and here is a very nice rendition from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra:
Published on 30 Mar 2013
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square present "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" in Lyra Davidica 1708, lyrics by Charles Wesley, arranged by John Rutter.

Episode 4308. Aired April 8, 2012.

Re: Recommend some music videos to me - "the municipal organ".
« Reply #1367 on: April 01, 2018, 10:16 PM »
Whilst I am enthusing about pipe-organs, although the Notre Dame cathedral organ might seem to be a pretty amazing instrument:



- it might seem little when compared to what the Americans did with "the municipal organ" (I gather that there are only two such in the world).

From this thread: Luna Lee plays rock on the 6th century Korean Kayagum stringed instrument.
new video from her:
Fleetwood Mac - Dreams Gayageum ver. by Luna

my favourite cover by her though has to be of George Harrisons "While my Guitar Gently Weeps" --
Beatles -While My Guitar Gently Weeps Gayageum ver. by Luna

Hey there .o/

Here's a song from the Ar Tonelico game series:



Never played any of the games myself, but I still thought that song sounded epic from the first time I ever heard it ♥_♥

The song was written by Prince, it was later revealed. He was going to record it, but gave it to O'Connor to propel her career, which it did.

The O'Connor version is much, much better, IMO.

They're different.  Styles and intents, and frankly singers.  I think each is good in it's own way.   He's also much older than Sinead was when she did the song, also to keep in mind, Prince's has no post production as it's live.

Joss Stone with guitarist Leon King (+ band of course) -- I Put a Spell on You
North Sea Jazz Festival 2017

I believe her first version of this was with Jeff Beck, but I love the guitar in this one:
