"Tonight in Peking, none shall sleep" and other operatic arias: One Fine Day, Un Giorno per moi, Cata Diva etc.

Happened upon this lot (well, duo apparently) whilst mooching around for something else. Epic 45. Heard of 'em? Seriously chilled tunes and some expert guitar work on their album May Your Heart Be The Map. Pissed me off no end like that it cost me £8 just to download it and contribute one of my own discs, but now it's playing away in the background and I feel a whole lot better about it. 8)

I'll be Missing You - P. Diddy

which may seem like a very odd choice! But am just back from conducting a huuuuuuuuuuge traditional East End funeral for which that was the opening piece of music...

hundreds of shaven-headed, hefty, west ham supporters shoehorned uncomfortably into black suits and displays of backslapping tearful man-hugs with stillettoed essex girls hovering nearby, oceans of flowers (pint of carling black label lager, dart board, several heavens gates, a shed, every conceivable relationship name - dad, uncle, brother etc. spelled out in west ham colours, flower-throwing on to the coffin......) top hatted walking in front of the coffin - relative blokes tearfully and shakily carrying the coffin, doggerel poems....

I often mock these blokes when they act like muppets at West Ham - but there is something very very moving about a mass of them struggling with grief and being men - and (yes - cliche as it is) - the still-surviving east-end community spirit that emerges at these times....

Giving the Berlin Philarmonic under Karajan a spin of Holst's "The Planets".

Sorry, fella, I've only just seen this. I've never heard of boomkat to be honest, but will bookmark it for in future. Many thanks.
Generally I have a dislike for paying to download tunes - I suppose I'm quite tactile when it comes to buying stuff.
And if you haven't got this album, LGM, then I truly, heartily recommend you do. I want to buy their other stuff too now but just can't stop listening to this either in the house or in the car.

And if anyone fancies a shuffty - try this.

Aye. Saw a video of a sailing ship at sea with Jupiter, The Bringer of Jollity playing in the background. Went well. It's Andre Rieu's Bolero up next. Love this version. :wink:

Gaslight Anthem Sink or Swim.

Much better and punkier than the still very good '59 sound. Like the Boss meets Hot Water Music.
