Galway Girl performance is lovely.  Perfect party music, i love those sing alongs.  reminds me of a time I met a bunch of french people on a cruise...they invited me in and sang traditional french tunes all night (plus drinking of course!).

I didn't know that even Cher made a cover version of Melanie's Brand New Key.
Watch this sweet sweeter sweetest music video ♥ :




Half an hour later: I just realize that any "young" readers may not have the slightest idea about the connection between a "pair of roller skates" and "a key". From http://en.wikipedia....g/wiki/Roller_skates "skates like these fit on over your shoes and were adjustable" - however, I don't think the author really knows the subject, because he doesn't mention the important key. You totally need the key, in order make the skate fit your shoes - the very point of Melanie's song.

In my childhood I knew of no other kind of roller skates than these.

An elegant version of Brian Eno's By This River arranged for solo bass and vodka glass by Andrea Lombardini. A superb example of what can happen when you remember an electric bass can be used for far more than slapping, popping, and speed riffs.

Indeed!  Mr. Lombardi's got a nice touch there.  
Love Eno's stuff, though I can never remember to actually go to it and listen, I just have remembrances of having heard the song and go "Aw yeah, that's awesome!".  Faves include "1/1" from Music for Airports (yeah, I know, it was more Wyatt and Davies than Eno, but it still rocks), "Sky-saw" from Another Green World, and the oft-overlooked collaboration with Robert Fripp "No Pussyfootin'".

This whole bass thing reminded me of something: In the early 90's of Seattle in the thick of the Grunge movement, there were many great artists and bands doing some great sonic experiments that would pop up, blow people away, and then fade into the static.
One of those great experiments was Sadhappy, featuring some things I never knew a bass guitar was capable of, and a good showcase of early work by certified saxophone nutcase Skerik:

I love to provoke the Beethoven crowd in the Bach vs. Beethoven debates. This is awesome!

Not so much a music video as a full music documentary plus a long interview!

The complete 2003 documentary Joni Mitchell - Woman of Heart and Mind is currently available on Vimeo. Link here.

joni.png

And if that whets your curiosity, there's also this recent long interview courtesy of CBC Music currently up on YouTube:



Any woman who appears on a television interview - and who sits there unapologetically smoking throughout - is ok by me. :Thmbsup: And I don't even smoke any more!  ;D

FWIW, I liked the documentary better - not so much because the interview was lacking as I really didn't care for the way Jian Ghomeshi conducted it. YMMV.

This one is growing on me. The eclectic group Slowbots studio recording of their song Innocence.




the-slowbots-photo.jpgRecommend some music videos to me!

The Slowbots are:

Nick Jaffe - guitar
Yasmin Ali - vocals
Angela Salva - violin
Katie Chow - percussion
Todd Swope - bass
-----------------

Note: If you're a musician (and especially if you're a guitarist) be sure to check Nick (JustNickMusic) Jaffe's channel on YouTube to find some of the best and most thorough reviews of guitars and effects pedals you'll find anywhere, along with lessons, commentary, and Nick being JustNick. Nick Jaffe is also the chief editor of of the Teaching Artist Journal published quarterly by the Center for Arts Policy at Columbia College. He has his own website, which can be found here.

Highly recommended. :Thmbsup:

More musical hilarity from Kim Dotcom:



Kind of a more modern techno version of the Dead Kennedys. :D

^sounds great!

And while everybody's in an acoustic mood, here's a guy who changed my mind on neo-classical fingerpicking...
Ewan Dobson

Time 2 - Did he just play trance music on a guitar?

I knew I recognised that hat :D
... and that track still sounds really good :up:

^^ Ewan is just insanely good. Time 2 is brilliant. He uses a delay on there to great effect.
