The Hunger Games and Folk Music

Are you, are you Coming to the tree Where they strung up a man they say he murdered three. Strange things did happen here No stranger would it be If we met at mid-night in the hanging tree. Are you, are you Coming to the tree Where the dead man called out for his love […]

This was amusing to me- I was looking up something else on the blog, and found this, from a post in 2006: We were discussing music and weddings and these are the chosen selections: HG: Part of the overture from Much Ado About Nothing. Jenny: The Moonlight Sonata, by Beethoven. DHM: We didn’t have music at our […]

Lake Isle of Innisfree, by Yeats

I haven’t done this in a while, I think, so perhaps a explanation or a reminder is in order. From time to time I like to pick out a song, usually a folk song, and find different interpretations of it on youtube, sharing the same song by a different artist every night for about a […]

Killing Time, Heavy

Get your feet back on the ground…. I can tell you nothing about the song or the band except that this song was one of the songs used on a K-drama I watched this week, and it made me mellow. Share! Blog this! Recommend on Facebook Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Bookmark in Browser […]

I think I’m in big trouble

This is pretty much totally, freakily, bizarrely insane: I think it’s the onion that makes the entire video for me. And I just let my one year old grandbaby watch it. On the one hand, it’s not nearly so bad as the time my father tried to let my four year old watch Platoon. On […]

Nana Mouskouri sings Day is Done

If I ever heard of Nana Mouskouri, I had forgotten it- and I do forget a lot, but I came across her rich, multi-layered voice a couple years back while looking for various versions of Blow the Wind Southerly- I could only find a sample clip of her singing that song at Amazon, but I […]

And now for something completely….. peculiar

Flower, by 용준형 (Yong Junhyung) of the K-Pop band Beast. He was also the main character in the musical K-drama Monstar. I find the imagery here fascinating, in a completely literal sense of the word. Think of the snake in the Disney Robin Hood cartoon, hypnotizing through the power of sheer fascination. There’s so much […]

K-Pop Saturday

I shared this on my FB. If you like gymnastics or martial arts (and I like watching both), you should love this. I consider it family friendly for my family, with about 2 seconds of borderline swivel. It’s a lot of fun to watch- these kids have worked hard: This is another fun KPop video, […]

Four Moms and Noise (bonus: music and kids)

We’re supposed to be talking about the noise levels in a large family today, specifically, answering this question: While I am accustomed to the noise that my children produce (which I don’t consider excessive), my family often makes comments about it and seems annoyed by them after a short period of time. How do you […]
