Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

For the heck of it how about anyone, at anytime, posting a song (whatever format...MPEG, youtube, etc.) on how you feel right now! You can expound with background, history, personal experience, or not. Happy, sad, in between---It's up to you....

I'll start......

One of the top ROMANCE songs out (jazz)....

Yusef Lateef--Cover of "Theme from Spartacus"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhqQFs7huwU

I had the honor to meet Mr. Lateef at a UCLA Jazz appreciation class, taught by Kenny Burrell, where he was guest lecture for a couple of weeks in the early '90s. He came across as a very enlightened individual, at peace with self and others. What a blessing...

Best,

Mike,
Thank you for sharing! I'd really like to say something about this video, but I can't explain it. It is one of those, that you directly get the feeling, it goes to your heart but the words just become unnecessary. There is so much wholeness in it that it rather makes me feel like being the music than being the listener of it.

Silja,

Many would say that the best music is like that. You FEEL it, rather than even have to think it. The musician can be recognized within the first few notes.....

Another example from the great ballader, the late great Miles Davis

From the "Sketches of Spain." album this is "The Pan Piper." Here is a Black American bringing the sound of authentic Spain to the world. Collaborated with the great composer Gil Evans....

I saw an interview where he said he had to intentionally NOT do ballads because he loved doing them so much....
JAMMING!....

AFROBEAT Style with Fela Kuti. It is said this is a collboration with the (?British rockers, Jethro Tull)....

Nice video Silja. What "emotion" would you say they express, to you?

To me, they are communicating an appreciation of nature and peace (even if I can't understand one word! HA!). Also let me know how you embed the youtube stuff on here, it might be useful for others also wanting to do the same.
Embedding, that's so easy! You can just copy-paste the embed code (go to embed, select it, then close once, choose the embed again, now it has turned to blue color, Ctrl + C) when you have selected Add Hyperlink (Ctrl + V). Just like this:)

Thanks for the embed information, Silja. Let's see if it works here. Try some more Hook and Santana. Music can speak the same language, irrespective of where anyone lives....We all need some healing.....

Aloha and Happy Birthday John...
"Imagine" will become life in our New World to come. I've always believed that, upon John's passing, his soul burst into a myriad particles of light...all returning to impregnate multitudes to replace the one. We are truly One...We are the Architects of a New Dawn...I love you John.

Suggestion...reverse the incoming order so that newest entry on "Match a Song" will be on top?
