I love this song, it was produced for a commercial...Karl Jenkins used invented words which dont have a translation into a language, its about the voices in harmony ♥

I heard a beautiful song by a beautiful singer.
But in a difficult language.
Google helped me with the phonics and now I´m singing that song
in its original language.
I also had the translation.
It is a handsome poetry.

Second one over is a little out of tune on the left cheek. A bit flat, I think.

Now all we need is the women relieving the man of his clothes and dressing him in their strings, while they dress up in jeans and T-shirts. Then they can smack various parts of his body and see what notes they can produce.

Why is it always the women who should undress and be smacked? I'm offended by it.

I spent an enjoyable hour or more yesterday reading thru, and listening to, this thread. I think of all the posts, it was K.D. Lang who stayed with me.

Ann, commenting on Lang's performance of Halleluyah (I think this was on the other thread about that song) said something about the total openness of Lang in that particular rendition.

It led me to muse on the difference one experiences between a singer who is giving - however excellent - a performance, and one who is totally surrendered to the music, who becomes a vessel through whom the song sings itself to u

I'm not especially a fan of the Gospel genre, but in this performance I think Mahalia Jackson did just that.

Can't resist! I found this link while reading about the Higgs particle. Apparently, this is the sound that the Higgs particle makes - sort of!

This summer’s discovery of the Higgs boson — or, more accurately, a “Higgs-like particle” — definitely inspired physicists, who waited decades for that momentous occasion. But it’s also inspiring musicians to create ethereal-sounding music.

The process is called sonification: taking raw data and transforming it into sound while still retaining the information contained therein. That sensor is your car that beeps faster and faster the closer the car gets to another object is an example of sonification, albeit a very simplistic one. It is transmitting information about the distance between your car and the object through sound. Ditto for a Geiger counter, except it carries information about radiation levels.
By the way, here you can hear what is supposedly the sound of Saturn's rings! :D :saturn:

This is Flanders and Swann live. The first song will probably be so out of date as to be archaic - but later songs might still appeal and be amusing.

I grew up with this duo and still love them.

The Higgs' music is Amazing! I couldn't get the link to the Saturn one, tho.

Chris Hadfield is ... Just.... In a league of his own. :shock:

It's amazing to me that Bowie wrote that song in 1969. And it is just made to be recorded by the commander of a space station orbiting the Earth...

Because I was an old fogie when I was in my twenties (when Bowie released the original version) I hadn't realised till today that the song was actually entitled "Space Oddity" and not Ground control to Major Tom...

Still gob-smacked
