Had a toss and turn night last night, but other than feeling somewhat tired, I’m doing all right today.

Thought I’d share one of my favourite live performances of “Orinoco Flow” with folks today.

Enjoy! 🙂

Am having a busy day of it. This includes some editing, but a lot of chores and housework.

Thought I’d post this video for the fun of it. (The actual video starts about 1:42 into the video.)

In the aftermath of yesterday’s event, the death of my friend, DavidM, I’ve been listening to a lot of Strawbs CDs and music.

So here I present a track that I really like at the moment, from the Ghosts (1975) CD.

Thought I would start the week off by posting the link and video to one of my favourite flash mob bits, this one from a German mall. It’s in German, but I’ve included the translation of the sung song below.

ROCK ME
by
Voxxclub

Rock Me
When the Maypole stands in the village square again
And everything revolves around the girls
When they wear their hot traditional dresses
And we guys are rubbing our eyes

Here we go, now it’s that time again
Here we go, today nothing is regretted

Chorus
Come, show me a bit more
I want to know a bit more
Rock me tonight
Dance a little shuffle
Or whatever you prefer
Rock me tonight
Look me in the eyes, little one,
you are really fine
Rock me tonight
Twirl around and twirl around
Until the dance floor crashes

And now the night really begins
Every girl grabs herself a guy, yes
Then the feeling of insanity heats up in us
Because everybody wants to know

Here we go, now it’s that time again
Here we go, today nothing is regretted

Chorus (2x)
*****

Seeing as it’s Christmas, I thought I would post up this Jethro Tull Christmas video. Fits the season, for sure. 🙂

Happy Birthday to Thea Gilmore!! A wonderful musician with a style and feel to her music that is both interesting, fresh, and lyrically gorgeous.

And she’s also got a Christmas album, Strange Communion, which is now one of my favourite Christmas albums.

Happy Thanksgiving Day, Canada!

Woke up to a relatively chilly day here in the Ottawa valley (around 11oC, about 51oF), actually weather that’s about normal for this time of year.

I want to wish all my Canadian friends a very good day, and one that is filled with all sorts of reasons for being thankful.

To honour this day, I thought I would just share a bit of Canadian music from Nova Scotia musician Melanie Doane…

To all my Canadian friends and peeps, here’s wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving. 🙂

Happy Birthday, Ian Anderson! 🙂

Ian Anderson, the lead singer of the British progressive rock group Jethro Tull, celebrates his 69th birthday today. I have long been a fan of Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson’s solo work, and am delighted that Ian is celebrating another birthday.

::singing::
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday, dear Ian,
Happy Birthday to you!
::stop singing::

Best wishes, Ian. 🙂

Oh, and for those who want to learn more about Ian’s work and Jethro Tull, just follow the link. 🙂

Some Men At Work Goodness, Times Three August 3, 2017

One of my favourite music tracks from Men At Work is the song “Land Down Under”.

Thought I’d share three of my favourite videos of the song. The first is the original song by Men At Work.

The flute work is just amazing on the song.

Here’s another version with an…alternate version to the flute, with the lovely Cecilia Noel.

Different, to be sure.

Finally, here’s my favourite version live with an older Colin Hay and a marvellous flautist, Gina Luciani. Not as perfect as the original band’s flautist, Greg Ham, but damn near close.

Any way you look at it, great, fun song! 🙂
