    I thought the video very fitting.

    Bounty "are you familiar with her version of the night they drove ol' dixie down?" No, but I´m going to find it. She has a beautiful voice and she sings with passion.

    Bounty, listened to "the night they drove ol' dixie down"
    I love these sung stories. You both, of course, know this song by the Walkers "There´s no more corn in the Brazos". It´s curious because the harmonic music hides a hideous story. Here in Brazil, where people usually didn´t understand the lyrics it was often played as a dancing music in the discos.

    that's an interesting observation danik. it makes you wonder about the origins and intent of things. I used to pay attention to figure skating a long time ago. I remember watching ice dancing and the couple was using a song that came from one of the early Matrix movies. it seemed very suitable for use in a routine, but one of the commentators felt it necessary to point out how it came from one of the most violent movies ever. he seemed to be disgusted by it. I think his implication was sort of "how could these degenerate idiots have picked that music??"

    these are a few of my favorite things by Julie Andrews from the musical (oh no tailor!) the sound of music

    wild mountain thyme which has been done by all sorts of folks, and is one of my favorite all time songs. favorite version probably by the corries.

    danik, if you are interested, your girl joan baez has sung it too. but the corries version is better!
