I'm listening to a CD Sharlene got me for my birthday. It's various pieces by George Gerswin taken from Player Piano rolls made by Gerswin himself. It's fascinating to hear Rhapsody in Blue (for example) played the way Gerswin intended it - for single piano with a much more up-beat tempo than I've heard it before.

Great stuff! :D

I've just found Ultravox's "Return to Eden" tour on You Tube. I went to a concert on this tour but never knew it had been released on DVD. I'm definitely buying it on payday! :D

This one still gives me goosebumps even after all these years! :D

After years of not even giving them a thought I've spent today listening to The Corrs.

Youtube has a funny way of making me remember music that I used to like!

Nothing except the gentle busy noises oft the instute for pharmacy awakening.

I'd really love to listen to some good stuff, but I don't have any music with me :(.

Well, not my favourite (I would be hard put to name it), but something like this I did. :D
