Inspired by Nansen's 1888 expedition across Greenland.

For me, you can't beat a nice big symphony. Listen to the magical opening of Bruckner's 4th.

Yeah. But I didn''t like the horn's timbre. Maybe it's my "Bang & Olufsen" laptop speakers, not made for serious music.

Classic KING-FM radio in Seattle, often plays Bruckner on their 3rd High Definition Digital Symphonic radio station. Yesterday, they played Bruckner's 7th Symphony. Three or four times I've dialed into the channel to hear Bruckner's 8th Symphony. Somebody at KING loves the 8th.

There they go again! Yesterday, accidentally tuned into King-FM classical HD 3 radio to hear Bruckner's 8th Symphony & they played the Bruckner 6th Symphony on their main channel later in the afternoon.
In addition on the King-FM HD 3 channel, multiple times, I'm hearing the Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, "Fairy Tales". Just lucky I guess.

When did I become a "Governor"?  Sheesh, some folks might start to believe me...  Given this is my post #2525, we must remember the lyrics of the song "In the year 2525"
"If man is still alive
If women can survive"

A quote from the YouTube blog:  "man has taken everything this earth can give and not put back enough in. [see minute ~2:22] says it all. we loved this song back then but it has so much more meaning now."

Sadly, it is going to be far before the year 9595 before we've taken everything this old Earth can give, at the rate we're going.

~10,000 years of industrial civilization is setting the bar pretty low, geologically speaking - and we're going to be lucky to make it to 1,000(the year ~2,850).

I think this is the best interpretation of one of the best classics, Hallelujah!. The fact that it is acapella makes it sublime.

 


One of my favorite "procreation practice" songs. I think it borders on the obscene, in the best way possible.



And something that I just recently experienced and completely blew my mind, Hamilton, the musical. Attached an animated version which gives the music a dimension similar to what is seen in the play. The music is good and clever, but the historic and story telling aspect puts it over the top.




I am an energy reservoir seemingly intent on lowering entropy for self preservation.

Nanning,
When I click on your Margaret Whiting song link, I got a "Video not available" response, so I copied her name and the song title and did an internet search, opened the Youtube link and listened. 
Thanks, too, for the Rod Stewart song.  I don't recall ever hearing either.

If you think the song above ended way too early and abruptly, you 1) are totally right and 2) can google for the 10 hours version.

Perhaps my favourite bird, the eurasian oystercatcher (scholekster, strânljip).
I hear and see these birds almost every morning on the lawn in front of our 3 storey apartment block (I've also seen deer and two coloured bats early in the morning). I've just heared these birds on our roof making the same sounds as this recording:

I'd like to add that this "tree in the meadow" melody is very nice to whistle.

I often drive through the city at dawn or even before that. It is a great time for bird activity. It gets quieter when the humans wake up.



Well, the year it's 1991
It seems that freedom is dead and gone
The power of the rich is held by few
They keep the young paralyzed
Educated by your lies
Keep the old ones happy with the news
Tell the singer not to song a song
Tell the poet that she's wrong
In the courts you'll win the case with lies
'Cause you sold them down the river-o

If some of the old ones come across as grumpy it might be such stuff. Much is the same old same old.

ETA: great dancing song back then.
