    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 I´ll restore it as well as possible.

    I´ll 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

    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 Tony´s 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?

    João'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 João 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.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpXAflVpGsQ

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

    A saved snippet that was stripped from LitNet from this thread that I found still in my notes:
    I enjoyed the energy of the gospel songs that are reaching out to the youth.

    Beethoven Silence: A wonderful piece of music. I found the following as a Youtube suggestion that followed:
    Erik Satie: Once Upon A Time In Paris... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9WK...PAqNbw&index=4 The music is beautifully accompanied with paintings by Edouard Leon Cortes depicting a bygone era. If I never see Paris in person these are the images I would keep in my mind's eye.

    LOL, the next link started with a commercial that had me a bit confused, but I persevered... A nice compilation of [i]Stand by Me[i]... a bit of research got me this:
    From the award-winning documentary, “Playing For Change: Peace Through Music,” comes “Stand By Me,” the first of many Songs Around The World produced by Playing For Change. This Ben E. King classic features musicians around the world recorded by the Playing For Change team during their travels. This song continues to remind us that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. https://playingforchange.com/videos/...und-the-world/
    ... amen.

    re: Música Bife (Danoninho)- Music steak ( Danoninho )... fun; again Youtube had this queued next (an homage to a scene from the movie "Big": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOY1s5ciq_o

    Poems (~100) about Music; (Starting with Elizabeth Bishop: I Am In Need of Music): https://www.poemhunter.com/poems/music/
    I am in need of music that would flow
    Over my fretful, feeling fingertips,
    Over my bitter-tainted, trembling lips,
    With melody, deep, clear, and liquid-slow.
    Oh, for the healing swaying, old and low,
    Of some song sung to rest the tired dead,
    A song to fall like water on my head,
    And over quivering limbs, dream flushed to glow!

    There is a magic made by melody:
    A spell of rest, and quiet breath, and cool
    Heart, that sinks through fading colors deep
    To the subaqueous stillness of the sea,
    And floats forever in a moon-green pool,
    Held in the arms of rhythm and of sleep.
    I'll end for now with this humorous Meme: https://www.reddit.com/r/ClassicalMe...rs_been_keyed/

    King Sisters... a wonderful harmony and elegance from the 60's covering "Yesterday".

    Fat Family... What a joyful range in their gospel rendition of Oh Happy Day !. I see they have S.P. roots. Using google translation I read the grandchildren are continuing with the music tradition. Alzo from O retorno (The comeback) translation:
    Fat Family was a time away from the mainstream media, but during this period they worked hard on the gospel career, singing in churches, festivals, congresses, weddings, and other events. They participated in several CDs of singers such as Preacher Luo and Daniel Ribeiro. They also participated in the DVD of the group Harmonia do Samba, singing the song Just One Touch.

    In 2014, the group received the invitation of the presenter Celso Portiolli to participate in the board. The group debuted the new board of the program Domingo Legal.

    In 2015, member Kátia received an invitation from Rede Record to participate in the reality show "Beyond the Weight" of the program Today. However, she left the program in the first week, after discovering that she was pregnant with her third child.

    In 2016, with the contract of WB Productions Artistic, the group returns to the stage, after a long period without recording. He made several appearances on TV shows such as High Hours, All Yours, Legendary and Sabbath with Celso Portiolli. The group also performed at Virada Cultural in São Paulo in the same year. On May 20, 2016, the group released the new work song "Move That Neck There", whose music video featured actor and singer Thiago Abravanel. [6]

    On September 8, 2019, during the program Faro Time, they released the song "Olha Pra Mim" after a few months the death of the member Deise Cipriano
    Here's the vastly stripped down en. version of their wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fat_Family

    Bob Marley's kids: Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers...
    Originally formed at the request of their father, Bob Marley, it was only after his death that the Melody Makers came into their own.[2] Their vision, however, is similar to their father's desire to bring people together through music and the Melody Makers' pop-reggae sound has certainly done that. The band is comprised by four of Bob Marley's ten children, vocalist/guitarist Ziggy, vocalist/guitarist/drummer Stephen, vocalist Cedella, and vocalist Sharon. As the eldest male, Ziggy is viewed by the press as the group's leader, with Stephen often sharing in the songwriting and lead vocals.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ziggy_Marley_

    Whats going on in California? Is that still because of the Wildfires?

    Fine that you found this post. I am saving bigger posts on Word now.

    Enjoyed Ziggy Marley and all the information about The Fat Family . One doesn´t hear about them anymore. The younger generations here, have a very different taste in music.

    Ziggy Marley somehow reminds me of this song:

    Yes, our local (monopoly) energy company has been peremptorily turning off power to hundreds of thousands of California families to mitigate fire danger (with tragically mixed results). Recently we went without power for 4-days straight... power still on now... waiting for shoe to drop as we have been receiving notifications due to wind-weather and severe dry conditions.

    KCRA TV Channel Update: "SACRAMENTO, Calif. —
    Citing improving weather conditions, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. says it will not shut off power Wednesday to 83,000 customers in El Dorado (my home county), Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Yuba and western Sonoma counties.

    Tens of thousands of customers in the Bay area and Northern California had the power shut off Wednesday.

    The shutoffs are part of PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff program, which is designed to reduce the threat of wildfires that could be sparked by lines brought down in gusting winds. PG&E's equipment has been blamed for causing a series of destructive wildfires in recent years.

    “The weather models in advance of this wind event were extremely variable -- showing the possibility for either a rain event or a dry offshore wind event. Given what we knew 48 hours out -- which is when we want to first alert customers about a possible PSPS -- power lines serving about 300,000 customers met our criteria for shutoff,” PG&E said in a statement. “With the changing weather conditions in real time, lines serving about 83,000 customers no longer meet our criteria for shutoff. We received precipitation in these areas and are observing high humidity levels from weather stations there.”

    PG&E noted that roughly 14,000 customers in Butte, Plumas, Tehama and Yuba could still be affected.

    PG&E's power shutoffs have drawn ire from residents, businesses and local governments. Gov. Gavin Newsom has threatened a possible state takeover of the troubled utility."


    Interesting comparison between Ziggy's and George's song; I enjoy George's music a lot.

    77 Bombay Street:
    77 Bombay Street is a Swiss folk rock musical group that was formed in 2008 in Scharans, canton Graubünden.[1] It consists of four brothers Matt, Joe, Simri-Ramon and Esra Buchli. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/77_Bombay_Street
    Music sample... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dwwhj8tHqPw "up In The Sky" is also noteworthy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5gnStKjFSw
