    For some reason recently I've been playing this song a lot when I write. Personally, I like to pretend he's singing about the Adirondack Mountains here in New York. Although with all the lakes it can't really be called "stranger to blue water".

    Time for Some Retro Spanish Music!

    The following song is called Tómame o Déjame, created by Cantabrian Composer Juan Carlos Calderón and first performed by the successful Spanish band Mocedades, back in 1974. I am not sure if you English speakers are familiar with Mocedades songs, but they are quite a classic in the Spanish-speaking world.

    This one in particular brings strong childhood memories to me, since it was one of my father's favorites and he would sometimes sing it during family gatherings, with a glass of Scotch in his hand. The song is very sad, since it's all about a woman that feels awful because she knows that her husband is cheating on her, and at least in my experience the voice, music and lyrics transmit the sadness really well.



    Even today in 2019, plenty of people in Spanish-speaking countries keep crying with this song.

    Super Retro Spain once Again!

    This song here is the unfair Finalist of Eurovision 1973, and I say unfair because it should have won that year. Another creation of Composer Juan Carlos Calderón, performed for the first time by Mocedades and certainly yet another of my father's favorites to sing during cheerful family gatherings over thirty years ago.



    The Super Classic Eres Tú marked an entire generation back then.

    A beautiful song from 19 years ago, quite a classic already and one of my personal favorites in my language.

    I wanted to post this other video as a Special Memorial for the composer and the singer together.

    Si Me Dejas Ahora is a super classic song too, created by the legendary Spanish composer and singer Camilo Sesto and first performed to wild success by his good friend, the Mexican Superstar and legendary singer José José back in 1979. Another of my father's favorites, and also it means strong childhood memories for me.




    Rest in Peace Camilo Sesto 1946-2019 and Rest in Peace José José, dead today at the age of 71 years, 1948-2019.

    Anyway Back to the Future!

    I am pretty sure that I have not shared this one here yet. This is Alina Lesnik's cover of the Nightwish song Ever Dream which is one of my favorite songs ever, and a great source of inspiration for me back when I was writing my Winter Hollow story. This time, German singer Alina features the great talent of young musician David Olivares, from Chile.



    Please check out Alina's channel, she freaking rules!

    So, listen yes, understand? No, not so much. I still find it enjoyable, in the 80's toy show sort of way.

    I have a fairly eclectic taste in music - yeah i know, everyone claims that. I'm dealing with some major CPTSD episodes this week and so I'm on the scrounge for music suggestions because music I haven't listened to before can really help my brain during these times. So is there a thread dedicated to music suggestions? Or is this the closest thing?

    This is probably as close as you'll get. Just us showing off music we all like.

    I am feeling somewhat retro tonight once again, but this time in the English language. This is a very famous, most beloved and definitely a super classic song from quite some years ago:



    The great Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve.

    I listen to a little bit of everything. I have an mp3 player with 365 songs on it. Everything from New Age, country, 80s love songs and 90s. Very little new stuff. I also have a pretty good jazz vinal collection. Art Tatum, T Monk. Just great to listen to. I used to play piano in a jazz club in New Orleans for three years and that opened my love of Jazz.
