Default Different/Strange music

different/strange music: 1950's

When I was a teenager I liked strange (for a country boy) music. So much so that at 14 I built Williamson 807 amplifiers ( 150 watts in for up to 25 watts out ) and built my own tone arms plus glued tooth picks onto 4 inch speakers to turn them into tweeters. My 12 inch bass woofers were from big console radios with electromagnets.
Other kids thought I was weird, I was . But I was not all that "long hair", my favorite was Arthur Fiedler.

Arthur Fiedler was a long-time conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra, a symphony orchestra that specializes in popular and light classical music.

But anyway, one of my favorites that family kept screaming at me to turn down was:

Boléro (Ravel) ...

André Rieu & the Johann Strauss Orchestra performing Ravel's Boléro live in Maastricht.

If you like other strange/different things occasionally try this:

Feet of Flames - Break Out

Well, I guess a passion for Ravel at that time might have been considered a bit eccentric. Had we been friends back then, I'd have been glad to share some of my own musical eccentricities and would have been glad to hear them played on your inspired system!

Some pretty good stuff that I liked as a kid:

André Rieu - The Beautiful Blue Danube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDaJ7rFg66A

André Rieu - Radetzky March (don't remember it)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xToFOzD0M8E

Simpler Music:

Cielito Lindo - Andre Rieu en Mexico

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKZBfuR5c0E

Amazing Grace - André Rieu

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn3lijQwllc

Now for a fun little ditty: from the Smother's Brothers

"Go! camel Go!" or "The One Hump Camel Races" think that while you listen.

also called "Harvey and Sheila"

also called André Rieu - Hava Nagila or "Let Us Rejoice"

C'mon Jim....now I'll have even more tunes going through my head, not to mention seeing Bo Derek running.

I was finally able to "mute" the one's from your last thread.

I was wondering how long before Bo Derek would enter the conversation . . .

Default Bo Derek

I always considered Bo Derek an embarrassingly bad actress. I found it difficult to sit thru one of her movies. As a sexy clown I considered Brigitte Bardot a lot better. As a comedian I considered Marilyn Monroe much better. And as a actress I considered Elizabeth Taylor very much better. To me, I considered Bo Derek too goofy to be sexy.

So I guess the studios hyping her either made a lot of money or not.

And I usually turn Shockwave Flash off unless I intend to use it. It tends to jam Firefox badly.

Reading your post I thought, gee I use to like some opera 55 years ago, what was it, of course anyone who knows opera would know instantly what it was, but I had no clue so I did a fuzzy search for my fragment on the internet with "opera witch of the wood" and came up almost instantly with "Vilja Song (The Merry Widow - Lehar)". The other fragment was "My fatherland it is for thee I often work from 1 to 3, but being there's not much to do I only come at half past two." and the computer finally spit out " DANILO (Lehar's "The Merry Widow") " and "Maxim's - The Merry Widow".

Looking back I think I never did understand the story but I did enjoy the music.

The only item of interest I found was this item that is a written loose (I guess) translation of the original. :

Lucia Popp: Vilja Song (The Merry Widow - Lehar)(w.transl.)

Personally, I confess to not knowing the stories (libretti, properly stated) when I was a kid, but made them up as I listened. The passion, the violence, the tragedy, the exultation! All perfect for the adolescent psyche! Better still, something to enjoy for a lifetime.
