get your dancein' shoes on, here we go...
I really want to tell you my story.
Both of my parents were DJ’s at a radio station in Honolulu (that’s how they met), so our home had music playing all the time.
My Dad’s collection of records was epic.
The school that my sister and I were sent to was really big on music.
In High School you could not graduate without music credits as well as participating in a singing contest.
You had to play at least one instrument and sing, good, bad, ugly, it didn’t matter, just do it. Many people we went to school with went on to become well known musicians, one very famous opera singer. My wedding gift to my husband was singing to him a song that meant a lot to both of us at our reception. I just love music and love to share it.
I just love the gals of the 80's and 90's ... remember MTV?
GENTLEMAN ARE YOU READY ?
Here we go ...
my sista' joey, I had to hold this one until no one else was around
I just knew I'd have to turn it up so loud that "Mister" would yell
not to mention I'd have to have a couple of cocktails and then get my dance on...

From Melody Gardot's new album
And if you have not heard this yet you HAVE to. It is a 17 year old boy from Britain's got talent. He brought tears to my eyes. The girl is not nearly as good, but she does OK as harmony to him. (except one place where he is MOLTO expressive and she just doen't seem to be with him at all.) I believe you'll be hearing a lot more from this kid as time goes on.
http://youtu.be/ZsNlcr4frs4 There are 10 million hits on this so far! (I get weird quality problems this AM - very clear yesterday. I think the d/l's are overloading the server that this video is on, so if it is weird, go back and listen later. it is SO worth it. Gave me tears. He's just singing "the Prayer" now, can't wait for something really expressive, he already demonstrated some of that in this song. But she'll have to stay with him better.
whether you liked her music or not, or listened or liked disco or not...whe was fun to dance to!...ciao donna and thanks!
To my Melody Gardot friends , I wanted to share something I just bought , yes, you will all be with me (heart) when I see her.
@ Indy : I watched those video's, very nice. The second one about the talent show.....I must say I got all choked up .....talent like that should never go to waste.
@ Joey : I didn't even know she had cancer, it came as a shock, one of the songs I really liked was Mac Arthur park (all the words) but it was these words that made that song a hit :
"Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
listening to (watching) on PBS
Oh My God, I'm showing my age!
Oh My Gosh did you check out that Full Moon?
Here in Arizona it's got a cool haze to it 'cause of the wildfires (that's another song)
Donna, oh you will be there with me, all of you.
Melody’s new album “The Absence” is brilliant. I really enjoyed watching her work in the studio while working on the song ‘La vie en rose’. Which happens to be one of my favorite songs.
Here she is in studio : http://youtu.be/FqyyRZBWHIo
Here is the whole song : http://youtu.be/ftTX0ekkzOY
The one you posted is terrific.
Oh Joey! Prez Prado! I haven't heard his band since I was a teenager. Love it.
I love cuban music. What a crying shame Castro took one of the cultural garden spots of the world and turned it into a slum.
I have one word to describe the Melody Gardot concert, "Mesmerizing".
You can read a little about it here which pretty much describes it best
She sang alot of her new songs and a few of the old. It was 2 hours of nonstop singing. For the ladies who care to know, she wore a short black dress and see through cream colored coat level with her dress and cream colored stilettos. A small clip of what she sang: http://youtu.be/nfVerACC8Kc . Petals.
thank you petals......yes, mesmerizing is the perfect description for her music.....she gives me goosebumps everytime i listen to her.
my favorite still is......http://youtu.be/fdKrUiUcEqw
