    Thematic Thread

    This thread suggests a theme where one can post anything related to it, a song, a text (poem or prose by oneself or a famous author), a picture...and so one until someone changes the theme.

    And the first theme is MUSIC:

    One of my international favorites Dumari ja Spuget: SKULAA TAI DELAA (TOIVON TUOLLA PUOLEN) by Tuomari Nurmio:

    The page was down all day, reached it with a new VPN. Just installed Tunnel Bear and am now in US. I`ll wait for one or two days to see if they restore the lost posts including my last one from Saturday. If not Ill restore it as well as possible.

    Ill try to recuperate at least some of the links from my last post, to set the thread going again. Unfortunately the context is lost:

    One favorite but very sad piece, Adagio by Albinone:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u99f9RAvwu4

    Poem The guitar by Garcia Lorca:https://poets.org/poem/guitar

    I liked the reading of the poem in Spanish with pictures of Lorca and Spain in the Spanish civilian war:https://www.youtube.com

    As Im not registered at you tube there might be ads.

    ?? hmmm... Looks like the ether bunny has a buddy who has eaten many posts Is it LitNet wide ?

    Enjoyed the Adagio and found an interesting aside to the piece that muddies the waters of authorship: https://www.cbcmusic.ca/posts/18137/...-biggest-fraud

    Thanks for unearthening the page again, Tailor, yes it was LitNet wide as the much frequented thread I opened at the time shows. The above, before Tonys post is a meager attempt to recuperate my last posts. To the exclusive LitNet sports like braving spams and technical issues in general we can now add preserving posts elsewhere.
    I am stunned about the article on the Adagio, which I always knew as Albinoni's. But give Cesar his due!

    Does any one want to use the opportunity to suggest a new theme or do we go on with music?

    Joo's legacy feted today at a venue in Davis, California (about 100 km from my home) headlined by his daughter Bebel Gilberto and Sergio Mendes:

    Great, that his daughter is playing Joo Gilbertos music in California. Though there is a more depressing matter involving his inheritance:

    Recently discovered another singer family, the Kelly Family. This song was a great hit in Germany:

    It's tragic when families get out of sorts when it comes to inheritance issues, one hears about it all too often.

    Hadn't heard of the Kelly family before (re-iterated in their wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kelly_Family ) NIce vocals in the song by John Kelly... New word learned from the Kelly's wiki: Benelux Union (Belgium/Netherlands/Luxemburg: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benelux )

    10 more succesful family groups: https://www.smoothradio.com/features...he-corrs-2015/ and one song by The Isley Brothers, Twist & Shout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTaqn8_gMR0

    I remember the Carpenters, The Bee Gees and of course, The Jackson 5. Michael was vocally to his family what John Kelly must have been to his. I also remember that Twist and Shout song. It was a hit here to. I will complete this post tomorrow. Am on tablet now, it is more difficult to include the links here.

    Going on with the theme of family bands. An interesting, very formal but synchronized rendering of "Yesterday" by the King sisters.

    And the Brazilian Fat Family a band of the 90 which has since lost important members:
