Here's an alternate video for anyone getting a message saying "Video unavailable" on that one...

It's a bit complicated but essentially it's because of YouTube's copyright management system known as Content ID. The company that owns the rights to the song in the US uploaded their version of it (the video I posted) and told YouTube to block any other videos using it (at least for those of us in the US).

Yes, that word " copyrights " there are things we have to ask permission on for our rights to copy and post, when it comes to quoting what someone has printed...the same goes for videos from country to country as to whether allowed - blocked for usage as to who owns the rights....both are clear to understand...

With today being Halloween, here's a nice rendition of Charles Gounod's Funeral March of a Marionette, famously used as the theme song for Alfred Hitchcock's TV show in the 1960s.

Well, that got Shan's attention. He has himself parked between the speakers. I think this is the first time he got to listen to the speakers in action. Little ears perked and twitched. Head on slow swivel wondering where the sound is coming from. He has now decided to purr to the music.

I have several of Kitaro's  CD's This is not one of them. Listening to it now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOtwSirCTHo

Raymond Scott's famous "In an 18th Century Drawing Room", which is based on Mozart's 16th piano sonata. This was released in 1939 and was used in several Looney Tunes cartoons (as were numerous other pieces written by Scott).

As I gather my thoughts on this day, what comes into view is the sudden realisation of how many dear and cherished friends I have on Seniors and Friends.  My response time has diminished, but the affection I have for all of you has not.  So thank you for remembering me; I truly appreciate it.

Tomereader1

We all miss you and wish the best for you in the coming months and years!  I heard a beautiful piece of music on the radio the other day, and was going to email you about it.   My old mind simply forgot was the piece was; I seem to remember Adagio in G, but not the author or orchestra.  Miss your program and the pictures you used to send us of you being "Santa Claus".

Love to you, Don and big virtual hugs also.

Thank you, Bubble.  Lovely for an early morning listen!  Where'd you find these folk?

MarsGal

I'm enjoying your posting Bubble, thank you. I was never into Heavy Metal, Led Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven being an exception. I noted that the band Iron Maiden, got the inspiration for its name from Alexander Dumas', Man in the Iron Mask, a book I never got around to reading. I vaguely recall seeing Richard Chamberlain's movie version.

Just poking around the net: hidden gems there.

"William Tell Overture" like nobody else could do it. Glen Campbell was quite the guitarist in addition to being a great singer.


Tomereader1

Wow!  Thanks for posting this, Oldiesmann!  I totally enjoyed it!

What a fantastic musician. Thanks Michael to introduce him to me.

So sorry about that news, we know how you cared for him and was much attached. That music was a very nice tribute to accompany him.

Oldiesmann

One of the more prolific artists in the world of disco versions of classical music was an American named Walter Murphy, who broke onto the scene with a smash hit disco adaptation of Beethoven's fifth symphony in 1976 at the age of 23. Here's his soulful adaptation of Chopin's Prelude No. 4.
