Cute song Haydee! :D

I absolutely LOVE this song: Feel Again by OneRepublic.

My girlfriend trying to play Fade to Black on the piano (and doing quite well given that she started the piece today).
If for inexplicable reasons you don't know this song, here's the original:

On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Listening to music from the British film based on the H G Wells book - Things To Come. Music by Sir Arthur Bliss.

I particularly like the 'March'. :)

Fancied a bit of Beethoven this evening, so I've been listening to the mighty Symphony no.9. It's a good thing I don't speak German, or I'd be singing along with it! :lol:

:D
Don't let that stop you.
I used to sing along English songs when I didn't know any English. A bit embarrassing later, when you realize what rubbish you were singing. :D

They are known as mondegreens when you hear the wrong words to a song. It comes from, apparently, a mishearing of "laid him on the green" as "lady mondergreen"
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.
