HAUSER - Wicked Game

This music stopped me dead in my tracks--it is so wicked, he is sooooo wicked in his cello playing among other things!  I need a cigarette and I don't even smoke!  One fan wrote the following....

This isn't music, this is an EXPERIENCE. You don't just hear this, you feel it. It's sensual, and hypnotic. It reaches down in to your soul and gently grabs hold leaving you helpless under it's spell like the world is standing still around you. Have mercy! 💞

HAUSER: 'Alone, Together' from Arena Pula

How is it that I am just now discovering Hauser?  This piece of music is simply breathtaking and on repeat mode along with tears that stream from my eyes each listen.  The beginning with  Benedictus and the conclusion with Nessun Dorma --absolute heaven!  I am in love and a new fan!  Not too mention he is a pretty nice piece of rock candy! Of course now I want to go to Croatia! Yes, Hauser I will stay home and watch #withme!

Willie Nelson, Kacey Musgraves - "Rainbow Connection" | Live from CMA Aw...

Happy 87th Birthday Willie!  I became a fan all over again when I saw this performance.  We sure could all use a Rainbow Connection given the pandemic madness we are in. Kacy your voice is godsend!

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbows are visions
They're only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some chose to
Believe it
But I know they're wrong wait and see
Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What so we think we might see
Someday we'll find it
That Rainbow Connection
The lovers the dreamers and me
Have you been fast asleep
And have you heard voices,
I've heard them calling

Viva la Vida

Life is so unfair as some sad news were revealed today and this came to mind, Viva la Vida as was inspired/painted by Frida Kahlo. For Frida, the meaning of Viva la Vida is all about a celebration of life, despite its sorrows and many troubles. An artist plagued by pain and illness throughout her short life, it is widely believed that Viva la Vida was Frida Kahlo's last painting, painted just days before she died ... "sensing that her time was near, Kahlo added the inscription "Viva la vida" on her death bed as her famous last words. It is indeed inspiring that, even with her own death looming near, Frida had the strength and boldness to escape pessimism even in a moment when darkness and morbidity would have been expected and even acceptable. Instead, Kahlo turned her watermelons into a symbol and celebration of life's fleeting simple pleasures...

and so I say to you Jose... Viva la Vida!
