Re: What are you listening to?

Listening to Michael Price's Entanglement album? Rather fitting to the family circumstances.

Re: What are you listening to?

Ok, so my head got plunged a bit this week into two quite different song line-ups, but both fascinating (albeit annoying when they keep overlapping themselves, stuck in your head!)     First off, after getting curious enough of the buzz I kept hearing about the genius creativity with Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'Hamilton' Broadway hit, I checked out the soundtrack on youtube, and gotta say, it's really good!  Very interesting, taking a historical musical (which you think might be a bit boring), and punching it up with a diverse cast, hip hop music, and attitude!  And I'm not even a huge musical fan, but the clips look a lot of fun, if any of you have heard of it and want to check out a bit of it?  Most of them are kept off of youtube, but here's a great article with the opening number segment they got to perform as part of the Grammys:   http://www.theverge.com/2016/2/15/11010890/hamilton-lin-manuel-miranda-grammys-2016

Then by chance, I somehow came across a years-old viral video from Nick Pitera, who has this amazing vocal range that goes up to being able to do the female part in a duet!  From nearly a decade ago, here's the one that started getting him attention (including singing it on 'Ellen'!):   A Whole New World




If you like Disney/Broadway, please do check out his covers… they're wonderful!  Part of Your World, Kiss The Girl, Belle, I See The Light, self-medleys of a One Man Disney Movie, One Man Lion King, One Man Les Mis, One Man Phantom of the Opera (his high-voiced Christine is amazing!), then various other pop hits.

So many amazing singers you come across by chance because a good cover of theirs went viral on their channel, and they built up a following from there.  That's how I discovered Peter Hollens (who does vocal layers like Nick), The Piano Guys, and Lindsey Stirling.  Nick just seems like such a fun guy, a total theatre geek who apparently even works for Pixar now, and got to work with Disney's Aladdin and Lion King Broadway productions when making those musical video covers. 

Aaand...  that got a little long again, sorry.  Just really neat, and wanted to share it with!

Re: What are you listening to?

I have only heard one song from Hamilton, but it was pretty good.

That's a good cover in that video.  I can't even sing the female part of that song (I kind of a low voice for a female person - not that I complain about that), so that was impressive.

Re: What are you listening to?

I know!  Right?   I was just so impressed by his clear pitch, just wanted to share with someone.  Even my female voice isn't that good!   ;D   Did you check out any others?  His scale for 'Christine' is even more eyebrow-inducing.   Which Hamilton song did you hear, the main opening number?  I was just so curious about the buzz surrounding it, and admit as a non-Musicals person, it's pretty darn cool what they did.

I like the Simon and Garfunkel version the best, but I just heard a really good cover of The Sound of Silence

Gosh, not heard them for years...but yes, I like them both as a duo and I also enjoy their individual work.

Re: What are you listening to?

At the moment I can't get enough of Rufus Wainwright's "When in Disgrace with Fortune...", Shakespeare's Sonnet 29. He performed it during "Shakespeare Live" and I immediately fell in love with it.

Bowie? I must listen to that! Just yesterday I finished my project I gave myself for the summer to listen to all of his studio albums.

Re: What are you listening to?

Well I criticised hubby for not knowing what the V festival was, then thought I'd actually better check myself!
There was the odd decent tune.

Re: What are you listening to?

So, lately, I've had a certain Michael Jackson song stuck constantly in my head (in between various Hamilton soundtracks... dang earworms!! ;D), thanks to coincidentally coming across two very unique covers of it!  As I know there's a couple MJ fans on here, thought I'd just throw it out to share enjoyment of with you, since I've been kind of quieter here otherwise!

The first is from NHK World Blends... seem to be a group that does a bunch of popular Western hits using old Eastern instruments (and there's some really cool ancient Chinese/Japanese string/flute ones out there!)




And then not but a short time later, somehow youtube suggested I listen to the same song (hey, it's a classic that translates well!) covered on a.... orgue de barbarie (barrel organ)?  Hadn't really seen those played before... although I'm familiar with the concept in the version of the 'piano' style/music box ones, where often the notes are hit instead with the 'bumps'/pins on the cylinder that gets rolled while playing.  Kinda cool...

Re: What are you listening to?

Those are both really cool. I love hearing versions of songs that use different instruments than the original version.
It must take a long time to make the organ rolls.

Re: What are you listening to?

I haven't checked that out yet!

I am listening to the cast recording of Come From Away because it is now available on iTunes.  It's just opened on Broadway and I saw it in Toronto over the Christmas break and I absolutely loved it.
