This is a great Tango. Is that Yoyo Ma playing?
My husband & I did an Argentine Tango routine a while back to one of his tangos. This sounds like the song we did it to but I can't remember for sure.

I adore Astor Piazzolla! Thanks much for reminding me to dance. And, yes, the dog finds it very unsettling but not nearly as unsettling as when I sing ;o)

You're right, Ann, it is indeed Yo-Yo Ma!

Always good to find another Piazzolla fan, Christina. I know what you mean about singing and dogs. I like to tell myself that it's because they don't have perfect pitch.

Have been a Piazzolla fan for many years - thanks for this snippet!

Well, that woke me up!

So glad you are enjoying this truly wonderful spring.

Very nice!

Now I know what the phrase "You've been tangoed" means! As for the Boo, he loves to join in the dancing, just not so keen on the piano accompaniment.(And it's not as if I went to the Les Dawson School of Music).

It doesn't surprise me, because car ad people seem to pick pieces of music with instant appeal, and I know what I do when I hear one: I take note of a repeated line, and look it up on Google or in iTunes, and if there's no lyric, I just look up 'music on **** car ad'.

We have several albums of music I've found that way, from Chairlift to Fredrika Stahl.

I'll just finish my porridge before I play it .....
Have you heard Gotan Project ? Perfection !

Yes, I know how 'healed' I am after my husbands passing when music excites me again...it does excite, in waves, just like my grief comes. Thanks for sharing this. I love how finding new music happens like this, via blogs. The movie clip I put up on my 'human' blog has some great music behind it and so I spent a bunch of time on youtube finding more music by them, Sopa de Cabra.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
