Day 25: A song you like by an artist no longer living

 

I’m going with a little of the ol’ Ludwig van for this challenge.  Here we have Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, conducted by Leonard Bernstein.  He was a good guy, but more than a little ornery with the hearing problem.

This is what I’ve had in mind for more than a week.  I’ve already used several songs by dead guys during this challenge, and I’ve been getting more interested in classical music over the past few years.  This is a good reminder of that.  Enjoy the choir!

When I was out for a walk this evening, Syd Barrett’s “Here I Go” came over my headphones, and I thought that would be a good song for this challenge.  I really love that song.  But I think I want to write a longer piece about why, put some good thought to that, and put down some clever words.  Also, I featured that song in a mix for a friend last year, and he didn’t like it so much.  I want to better understand that as an angle for the piece.

Interested in music. Most of my personal catalogue is indie bands, and punk, but also avant garde, blues, Motown ... almost but not quite, anything. I am now learning much about classical and contemporary works. I'm looking for people to share music, new and old, and looking for new avenues to discovery new music. Come with me.
