I'm currently listening to the Henry Mancini Album from the old "Mr Lucky" TV show. The current track is something called "The March of the Cue Balls".

I Can't listen to vocals while working. I even have a hard time winning a game of FreeCell with vocals in the background. I haven't tried something in a foreign language yet. There's a PhD thesis in there somewhere.

Normally, Through the night the BBC's classical music overnight service on R3, but they've got a soprano on, and I can't stand sopranos.

nice - very nice harmony - have you looked on line for the sheet music - there are several free websites - esp. if this is folk music in the common domain -

Wow, there are a lot of great things being listened to here.  Talk about diverse, too!

John: I love that album, and the follow up, Mr. Lucky Goes Latin.  Mancini, in general, was pretty great.  Do you have the Peter Gunn albums?  Beautiful, jazzy stuff.  Those, the Mr. Lucky album you've got, Hatari! and Experiment in Terror are indispensable. 

I can't actually say the name of the band that's blasting through my speakers right now, as it violates the rules about coarse language, so I'll just say the LAST song was:

Bipolarbear - Way To Venus.

I thought bears had to be at the North Pole.  None I have heard of has been found at the South, and I've never heard of the experiment of transplantiong one.  Probably would be allowed today anyway.
 
OH! that sort of bipolar.

I've updated the advice about YouTube in Rules & Information.
Here is a copy.  :D

A word about YouTube
YouTube contains some great videos but does cause us some problems.
If you want to link to a YouTube video please link to the pop out window version and not the main page
as some comments and adverts on YouTube are inappropriate for this forum.
To link to YouTube safely look for the pop out icon at the bottom right of the video (it looks like two boxes, one in front of the other).
Click on that and copy the url from the pop out window. Thanks.

I DO have the origonal Peter Gunn album. I live in Pittsburgh PA USA where Henry Mancini is one of the "local boys". In fact old episodes of Peter Gunn can be seen on a local "Retro" TV channel (RTV-TV). I have not come across his "Goes Latin" album but I keep an eye out for his stuff at a local used record store ($1 per LP!!).


If you enjoy Mancini you may want to check out the work of Dave Grusin who worked with him and turns out some good stuff. He even did an entire CD of Mancini tracks a few years ago titled "Two For The Road".

Hello

Mainly listening to my arteries harden.  Didn't realise after all this time, I would still be on my first ship, and on the second run through, 1900 entries appearing since the first run completion.

I do dearly love Handel and Beethoven.  I helps me keep my pace.

All best
