You know music - it soothes
It stirs the soul
Some "orchestras" use very few instruments
Music crosses cultural divides. This song was a huge hit worldwide in the 60s in the US - all in Japanese. We had NO clue what the words meant but the beauty of the melody and the emotion the song generated made it a hit.
Now about those octaves.... here're a couple of ladies with amazing vocal range
By now you've guessed music is very important to me. It always has been but these days frankly it is a large part of what keeps me as sane as I am. If I had one day left and could listen to 10 songs only, today those songs would be - in no particular order - Pachelbel's Canon, Frank Sinatra's Cycles, Springsteen's Born to Run, Ed Ames - Who Will Answer, Kenny Rankin's Peaceful, Beatles A Day In the Life, We Five You Were On My Mind, Stones Get Off My Cloud, Gin Blossoms Follow You Down and Mozart's Symphony 40 and Dave Brubeck's Take Five. Yes - I know that's more than 10. Oh well. A somewhat eclectic mix that changes daily. I leave you with this...
