    An old song, “Albert Flasher”, by the Canadian pop/rock group, The Guess Who. The song was not originally released on a studio album, but instead first showed up in 1971 as the B side of “Broken”. “Broken” never really received much air play, but “Albert Flasher” managed to break into Billboard’s Hot 100.

    There’s a story (probably apocryphal) purporting to explain how Burton Cummings came up with the song’s title. I’ve never heard a cogent explanation for the lyrics which strike me as pure nonsense. But I still like the song.

    Here’s a selection from let me tell you, a song cycle for soprano and orchestra by the Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen. It’s based on the 2008 novel of the same name by Paul Griffiths. The composition received a world premiere (with soprano Barbara Hannigan and the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Andris Nelsons) on December 20, 2013. A recording was released last year.

  • Just watched this about an hour ago.

    I was listening recently to an interview with Barbara Cook, whose autobiography, Then and Now, was just issued in paperback. Which prompted me to go digging for YouTube clips of Cook performances. In this one Cook sings “Long Before I Knew You”. The song was performed as part of medley on her 2007 album, No One Is Alone, and originally comes from the Betty Comden/Adolph Green/Julie Styne 1956 musical, Bells Are Ringing.

  • @pevh Renaissance Period music is one of my favorite genres. I believe myself and others have posted examples on here, so no need in feeling alone.

    “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want”, by the Smiths, was originally released as the B-side of “William, It Was Really Nothing” in 1984.
  • Funny you should post that @pevh I was just checking through old play lists and I noticed that I was listening to a lot of Jordi Savall et co. at one point.

  • “Feel It Still”, from the 2017 album by Portugal. The Man, Woodstock.
  • Man, my memory is like swiss cheese. I 've been trying to remember the name of a Brazilian singer that sung in French, at least if my memory serves right :D

    I hadn’t thought about this song in ages and for some reason it popped into my brain last evening and has been bouncing around in there since then. “Resurrection Shuffle” (released as a single in 1970) was the sole hit (and a modest one at that) by the short-lived trio, Ashton, Gardner and Dyk3. Nice horn section.

    The title track to the 1993 album by the Mavericks, What a Crying Shame.

  • I'm in love with Raul Malo from The Mavericks. His voice is gorgeous. I could never resist a man who could make me cry while he sings.
