Take me Home, Country Roads

This is one of the many songs that reminds me of my dad. This is John Denver’s version which I enjoy better than Olivia Newton John’s. The homey feeling that this song gives is always a welcome one…I am a country-girl after all.

The Japanese version of this is all the same beautiful and enjoyable to listen to, you can hear it from the video I posted here.

Mozart in a Modern-day Setting

 (June 20,2011)

You know how I often post photos of locals in Mozart costumes? Consider this as one of them. They are dressed in historical costumes and wigs to sell tickets for concerts and opera at the Vienna Opernhaus. These costumes truly bring the 18th century to life  – gives you that feeling of almost bursting into a song.

I’ll constantly post Mozart sightings in this blog…

This song touches my heart…the lyrics, the tone and the over-all music. I listen to this song once in a while…not much because I always get teary-eyed.

Piano keys

piano

eager learner

They say when you play piano your fingers get longer and slender. 🙂 Can’t prove that but I do know that playing the piano makes my daughter happy. 😀

This is her in one of her piano sessions last semester. Surprisingly (or not), she was able to learn some pieces in a short period of time. Thanks to the patience of her teacher (he always says anyway that she is easy to teach) and also her willingness to learn, we can listen at home to what she usually would.

I truly need to take photos and videos of her again as she plays.

She’s wearing a white chiffon top over white longsleeved shirt as it was still cold then.

Hallelujah

Posted by on Jun 12, 2011 in Music Monday | 1 comment

There are many versions of this song but Allison Crowe’s rendition is one of my favorites. I personally like the message of the songs sans the orgasmic intonation. Allusion to bible stories such as David eyeing Bathsheba, Samson and Delilah’s story are obvious and some interpreters view this as the meaning of hallelujah in this is sensual. For me, the meaning of Hallelujah will remain; Praise be to Jah, the short form of God’s name.
