  1. I saw part of that and am going to watch the part I missed on BBC Iplayer later. She recorded some lovely songs. Not sure if any of her songs have been posted on your YouTube music thread, but I'll post one my favourites on there sometime later. A popular talented British singer with such a long and successful career deserves a mention.
  2. Sensativities regarding the Queen I expect, no fault of hers. Yes he was a Catholic who earned respect from both sides of the divide, because he spoke out against violence. It's all history now of course, but you have to go way back in history to have an understanding of it. I want to be optimistic with hope that there will be peace in the future ahead, but we can't be absolutely certain if dissident groups start looking for trouble.
  3. Anyone who remembers the terrible troubles in Northern Ireland will be grateful for the huge effort and contribution he made in bringing politicians together which eventually led to the Good Friday agreement. Many people have expressed admiration for him. He deserves the tributes. https://www-bbc-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-northern-ireland-53634709?amp_js_v=a3&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQFKAGwASA%3D#aoh=15965380798848&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s
  4. Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen. I get the feeling they rather admire each other Their second song together - Twist and Shout is the better one.
  5. It was this that introduced me to the music of Beethoven. 😉
  6. Adagio for Strings-Samual Barber.
  7. This Bruce Springsteen interview appeared on my YouTube TV recommendations after I'd been watching one of his music videos. I'd seen it on Channel 4 around the time of the US elections, but had forgotten about it. What I liked about his comments on Donald Trump was that, even though he isn't a Trump supporter he understood why some of those who still live in the Community where he grew up had voted for him.
  8. We British have a tendency to be too self-conscious about our appearence, and how we appear to others. I can be just as guilty, it's a form of vanity in a way. Felt a bit silly wearing a face mask at first when I went into Town the other day on the bus. Soon got over the embarrassment when I saw so many other people wearing them though and knew I was doing the sensible thing, by protecting myself and others So start wearing that face covering Makapaka, you'll soon get used to it.
  9. Streets of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen.
  10. I watched a programme about Ella Fitzgerald on BBC Iplayer recently. She endured a lot of sadness in her early life. Two great legends singing a duet together. Sorry meant this reply to quote your Ella Fitzgerald previous post.
  11. Ennio Morricone died yesterday RIP. Of the many other timeless classics he composed this one is another favourite.
  12. Happy Independence Day American friends. Hope some of them see this thread Phan, because I'm sure they would appreciate that you've thought of them again.
  13. Rather like the mix of this music with the choir towards the end.
