Music favs
 
I don't recall a thread for just music. So, I'll start one. To start it off are three greats Michael McDonald (Doobie Brothers), Donald Fagan (Steely Dan) and Boz Scaggs. They do concerts as the Dukes of September. A great gathering of talent.

This young lady has been playing guitar for roughly 6 years now. She seems to have a handle on it.

Don, the Video is not working here.

Moonstruck 12-05-2016 05:53 PM

Yep, quite a talented young lady, and a great son too.

Moonstruck 12-05-2016 05:56 PM

Pilo, just go to youtube then in the search box type in Dukes of September. There should be many numbers come up. This one posted was Lido Shuffle. Did you see the Paris Combo posted for you?

Pilou 12-05-2016 06:19 PM

Thanks Don I will search on YouTube, I like the lyrics of Lido Shuffle (Lido missed the boat, etc..). Sorry, what do you mean Paris Combo ? Where can I see it ?

It's probably the last post in the thread by RT, ". . . and Another".

Many thanks Don, i found it, sorry i missed it before ! I liked the music and video clip, also appreciated your gallantry, it's so rare !

Kind of a nautical theme. From the 1970s by the Hughes Corporation, "Rock the Boat".

Ok, here are mine. The song for which my boat is named. The attributes are about the boat, not the captain.

Slow Hand


Runner up for my boats name. While it was in the seventies instead of the eighties, this brings back a lot of memories (no regrets or denials for my teenage years). If you like the music of Warren Zevon and Lynyrd Skynyrd, you've got to like this song!

All Summer Long

Ted, that's a nice bunch of debutantes you run with. Good number, but I always thought Lynyrd Skynyrd did that song. I guess because they did "Sweet Home Alabama".

OK, here's one from my Dr. Hook collection.

Thank you for the opportunity to talk about Nana Mouskouri.

She was born in Greece. While still a child, she lived under the Nazi occupation of Greece, lacking schooling, witnessing executions and enduring limited access to food, with the family at times forced to subsist on snails and frogs. Both Nana, her nickname, and older sister Eugenia were skilled singers, and both eventually studied at the Athens Conservatory. With the girls' father having a gamybling problem via which he lost much of his money, the family could only afford to keep one of the siblings at the school, with Eugenia choosing to leave so Nana could continue to study at the Athens Conservatory.

Though studying opera, Nana Mouskouri had an avowed interest in jazz and American standards, singing with a band at night and being influenced by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra. When the conservatory found out about her jazz leanings, she was summarily prevented from taking her final exams. Yet Mouskouri was undeterred, and in 1959 she won the Greek Song Festival singing “Kapou Iparchi Agapi Mou,” she released her first record in 1958.

Nana Mouskouri has sold over 300 million albums, has sung music in more than a dozen languages (including Greek, French, English, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and Hebrew), and thus is one of the top selling artists in the world, exploring genres that range from Greek folk tunes to adult contemporary balladry and classical music.
She also moved to Paris.

I remember when I was a child her inimitable interpretation of "S'agapo", aboard "Christina" moored in Monte-Carlo / Monaco, (the Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis's yacht) while Aristotle was dancing on the large aft deck to the song as only he could dance, expressing his life of Greek tragedy.

Nana Mouskouri was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1993, also served as a member of the European Parliament from 1994 to 1999.

PS : A thread about just music is a great idea.

Oliver, thanks for filling us in on Nana. I knew most of it, but not about her life under Nazi occupation. She is truly a unique talent. I seem to have read that the quality of her voice comes from one vocal chord being shorter that the other. Whatever it is she sings like an angel.

Continuing on the European vein here is an artist with a great tenor voice who also like to use it for popular music. Al Bano with his wife at that time Romina Power singing"Felicita".

This is what I hear in my mind when I think of the WWII era in France. So iconic.

Boz Scaggs in another vein. He is a very versatile performer.

This is a great thread, thanks Don.
This is a group I found on You Tube. They take modern songs and perform them the way they should have been. This is my favorite.

Don, you are welcome. In this coming time of Christmas celebration, I find it so much more enjoyable to share about music, evidence that the common passion of boat and sea can lead to many very nice things.

"Felicita" is beautiful and was quite appropriate at this time of the year.

Thanks for this special moment of music and pretty show.

Thanks for a great contribution, Parks. Although, I'm not certain your liking that had anything to do with music.:hide: But very cool.:socool:
