You know, for some reason that tune reminded me of Moonlight In Vermont which was a song that Sinatra sang back in the 1950's. From what I remember reading Sinatra had heard Moonlight In Vermont on the radio or somewhere and was discussing it with a friend and the friend pointed out that the lyrics don't rhyme. Frank said "yes they do!" and the friend said "no they don't!" and so they got a recording or the sheet music or something and looked at the lyrics. Sure enough, it's one of the few songs that has no rhyme in it at all. It SEEMS like it rhymes until you actually listen to it. It's a beautiful song, here it is with Ella and Frankie.





Edit: I wanted to add this. It tells about the writing of Moonlight in Vermont and how it became rhymeless but still wonderful.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I figured I'd begin this thread as a place to put music that may not be in the "mainstream" of western pop music. Which is after all the more popular. Lately I have been adding international music to the What are you listening to thread and it seems a tad out of place. So feel free to add jazz, electronica, classical, avant garde, international styles etc.

I envision this as a thread where one can post entire concerts, albums and clips.

To begin the truly international nature of this this thread, I'd like to present a Norwegian songstress singing the great American art form Jazz.

Silje Nergaard singing her beautiful and touching ballad Japanese Blue.
When I first heard this song I grabbed my brushes and played it over and over, I found it so touching.





This is not America. Written by Metheny and Mays.





Be still my heart.





Tell me where you're goin'.



That's some real hip, beautiful stuff.
