I read a number of blogs on a regular basis. There is so much talent out there it is just amazing.
One of my favorites is http://accordingtok.blogspot.com/ (I am going to have to learn how to make nice little connections in my text, but right now this is the best I can do.)
Kate, who writes the blog, is a smart and funny young woman who I would be proud to have as a daughter. She is a physician and her compassion shines through in her postings. She is going to do awesome things.
Anyway, Kate’s latest posting was a Top Five You Tube Videos meme. Kate invited people to pick it up and I thought it sounded like fun. So here are mine:
Lakme/The Flower Song
I loved this way before British Airways (ruined it) appropriated it for their adverts.
My friend Michael sent me this and it makes me laugh every time I watch it. I will never be able to sing this hymn in church again with a straight face. Thank goodness we don't sing it that often. It will be like being in church on Good Friday and having “Always Look On the Bright Side of Life” go through your head over and over. Yeah, the giggles in church on Good Friday. A sure fire way to take the highway to hell.
I agonized over this or Pavarotti singing Che gelida manina from La Boheme. I know he became somewhat of a caricature towards the end, but oh my God, that voice. Nessun Dorma won.
Woody Allen/Love & Death
Love and Death is one of my favorite movies. It is so goofy and funny. This is the first ten minutes. Do yourself a favor and rent it.
What more can I say!?!?! Jersey Girl is awesome live, but there’s nothing like Rosalita. Gotta love Bruce. Especially when you live in Bruce Country. :)
Can you imagine having that many people just adore you?!?!
Anyone else want to play? It is really hard to pick only five. Let me know if you join in so I can check out yours too.
Hmmm, that sounds a tad salacious. Not quite what I intended...
