DJ,
Now I feel old....I know she is popular, even heard a few of her songs but don't know her music. I understand she is very talented. Also saw where some John Lennon fans were upset that she was pictured playing his piano...wow!!

Joisey, I actually liked their rendition of Hotel California better than the Stairway to Heaven. The guy that was doing vocals did all the background vocals as well and he had a split screen of him doing 3 or 4 different parts at the same time. Too bad for the copyright infringement thing. It was pulled from youtube .

Woman - You done real good !!!!  Thank you.  I've always liked the tune, but that was the best rendition I've ever heard.  Jack, thank you for introducing me to this duo.  Frank

Thanks LMSS, are you sure you are not my wife?
Joisey, I don't know what is more impressive, their incredible talent or the fact that they can make that together while 5000 miles apart using an old Apple laptop!
By the way, I love this thread!!

Jack - I too love this thread.  "Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast".  William Congreve.  Very often in man's vehicles of expression I find the world as it should be instead of as it is, and it is really positive and  really refreshing - "Imagine".

Dino was the epitome of COOL.  Loved watching his TV show, sans rehearsals.
I guess Martin got so much practice ad-libbing with the Pack that he didn't feel he should "waste" his performances in rehearsal.

Now that Martin's name has been introduced, I got to thinking of him in RIO BRAVO and that brings me to Ricky Nelson and reminds me of something Nelson copied from the movie RED RIVER.
That movie featured John Wayne and Walter Brennan and Montgomery Clift who played Tom Dunson's (Wayne) adopted son, Matt Garth.

Clift's character had a habit of rubbing his finger alongside of his nose and for the movie, Rio Bravo, Nelson used that same "habit" from the movie, Red River.

Also in that movie was veteran actor (even from silent films), Harry Carey who played the cattle buyer near the end of the movie.  His son, Harry Carey, JR played the cowboy who got killed in the cattle stampede during the cattle drive.
Harry Carey had a "habit" he used of grabbing his arm (left?) with his other hand when he was posing in character in many of his movies.
As a tribute to Harry Carey, John Wayne used that same "habit" at the end of the movie, The Searchers, which also included Harry Carey, JR (killed again) and his mother, Olive Carey, who played his mother in the movie.

You gotta stop giving me these triggers, Angela.

Since there was a brief conversation about non-professional performers and their music.  I'll pass on this soloist from the famed PS22 Chorus:




and I'll add this one, because I'm a huge fan of Kyle Landry's videos.

bluedog - A good rendition of a beautiful song.

Jayrot - PS22 - Train that voice and teach that child stage presence - she already has the fire and the potential.

A - About your entry for gospel :  So very powerful and so real, and beyond the ken of too many of our citizens.  I think that many of us understand the problem, but what we need are solutions in a "hands up" mode sans corruption.  

In my role as a social worker some years ago I knew these people; black, brown, latte, whitish, butterscotch, and whatever other colors exist for people on our planet.  It is a huge socio economic problem in an extremely wealthy nation.

LMSS,

OK, I bit and went to listen to Pat Boone. I actually know his brother...he retired a few years ago from the university where I teach.  The Boone's grew up just south of the campus. I read the comments below Boone's questionable rendition, and I guess most younger folks don't know what a huge imprint Boone made on the pop scene back in the late 50's with his hit singles and persona, and consequently how hilariously tongue in cheek the whole heavy metal thing was, or was supposed to be.  As bad as it was, that sure was a kickin' band behind him! In retrospect, I'll bet he wished he hadn't done it.

I have to admit....wasn't around for Pat's hey day but heard a rumor that when he was approached to cover Fat's Domino's 'Aint It a Shame'.....he wanted to change words to "Isn't it a shame" so that it was grammatically correct.

Pat Boone was a caricature of the "last innocent generation".  Every mother and grandma loved the guy and wanted their daughter or granddaughter to marry one just like him, squeaky clean with impeccable manners and a humble smile.  Of course they were all upset about that kid from Tupelo with the devil made swiveling hips, and all that Rock and Roll stuff, but the young girls didn't seem to mind.                                                                                                                         

 I can still hear that Pat Boone smooth voice singing, "On a day like today, we'll pass the time away - writing love letters in the sand".  Oh, and about those white bucks !!!!   I wore them or saddle shoes all through college in the 50s with Argyle socks.  In style, comfortable, and the dirtier those "bucks" got, the more "character" they developed.      

The 60s and 70s changed all that, and our vehicles of expression followed suit.  Both eras were a great time to be alive.  Lots happening and ideas of all types flying about.   Pat Boone is one year younger than I.

Probably an urban legend, but who knows!?  Wouldn't surprise me.
