You young people Anne, you say you're tired but you don't sound tired, we got proper tired in our day.

Take my advice, don't listen to me.

I like this song, but my man said the other day, " Why is it that when I hear your music I imagine a guy cooking in a giant pot, surrounded by cannibals?"

 :lol:

I'm watching the complete series of "The Young Ones", so naturally I listened to

That's good, thanks for posting 8)

I love this song by "Old Crow Medicine Show". (Chorus was actually written by Bob Dylan, and then 25 years later Ketch Secor from Old Crow Medicine Show wrote the verses...the song then went platinum)

When I hear the song it makes me long for the south, especially Tennessee. Sometimes I hear the song and call an old Army buddy of mine who lives outside Chattanooga. Now when I call him he'll ask me jokingly if I was listening to the song, and I have to tell him, "No I just miss my friend and wanted to talk". 

Ironically Ketch wrote the verses while attending school in New Hampshire, and "feeling homesick for the South".

This is my favorite verse:
Quote
Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly
Had a nice long toke
But he's a-headed west from the Cumberland Gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee



Cool video as well.

This is Dylan's original version of the song (Chorus only)

Daphnis and Chloe is a marvellous ballet you should see some time. Ravel is one of those French composers, along with Debussy, I cannot imagine living without, and I adore literally every single note they wrote. At the level of simply listening to music and enjoying it, I don't believe it necessary to understand the mechanics of music.

If you liked this, I urge you to explore La Mer by Debussy, which is another "Impressionistic" piece of music.

Ravel was a master orchestrator, but his solo piano pieces are the pinnacle of his work. One of them, called La vallée des Cloches from Miroirs, inspired Percy Grainger to orchestrate it. Parts of it sound like Pink Floyd.
