Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Flashes Two of my Favorite Songs

Yes, go watch the first on Youtube. I grew up on Sergio Mendez. The second one you can’t HELP but sing along.

I miss…REAL music, don’t you? Oh…by the way, Robert Palmer’s song of love and sex was much more exciting than a bunch of women shaking their big butts at you on MTV’s award shows. At least that’s my Nobody Opinion.

  1. Yes, opera is amazing. My mother used to bring out the three tenors every Christmas. Music is being ignored right now due to the powers that be locking us all up and pounding us with horrible news. And if Youtube is good for one thing, it’s the fact that we can pull up just about anything.

    Sounds like you are in heaven there amfortas. As for Robert Palmer? I’m a simply drummer still. From what you just wrote I think you might agree that our MTV Music awards were…pretty boring.

  3. I have to own up to having a typical 50-60’s lad’s musical tastes. I once had every one of Buddy Holly’s recordings including the ones found in his shed long after he had gone. But the music died and its corpse was held up for such a long time until it reached its current stench. But alongside the popular music of the day, I had the music of two older generations and the music backgrounds to the developing film industry.

    It was not until much later in life that I rediscovered the cast-off Opera which I had rejected as ‘silly’ when young. OK, I admit, the story lines in most operas remain silly or trite but the singing, the musical scores, the soaring tenors and sopranos are just magical.. You Tube is a wonderland. One can pull back the stage curtain on Great singers and see their development from youngsters. Wikipedia can tell us their personal histories.

    I have seen Angela Gheorghiou develop splendid lungs enough to master Chi il bel sogno di Doretta in La Rondine, for which she could barely squeak out at the start of her magnificent career. Her repertoire is now just awesome (remember how that words was once used?). Or see very early first appearances such as that of Elina Garanca at 16 singing Villa Lobos. How can a child be so perfect. Or suddenly appreciate that the monstrous Delilah actually loved, nay was besotted by Samson. Hearing ‘Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix’ can break your heart. Elina again. She could have me if she played her chords right.

    Then there is Anna Netrebko. OK, she does have me. She was the floor mop lady at a conservatory in Russia where she earned enough to support her studies at another conservatory. The breadth of her scope takes in the devastatingly sad “Addio, del passato” of La Traviata, to the deeply sexy Quando me’n vo’ of La Boheme.

    Then there is Hilary Hahn !! Say no more. How many of these ladies can I love at the same time? I even appreciate the damned violin now. Hahahahaha

    Robert Palmer? His robot ladies? Hah !!
