Two Favorite Pieces of Music

06Oct09

Close your eyes and listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wy97lOwvECs

Where are you? In the Harlem of the 1950s, girls in black evening dresses and ruby red lipstick, heads tipped backwards as their laughs mingle with the blue smoke rising out of glass ashtrays? Okay, now close your eyes and listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKgcKYTStMc

Are you in a little café in Paris, with twinkling fairy lights along the cobblestoned streets, and the grand Eiffel Tower in the background? Can you smell the baguettes baking in the little Patisserie across the street?

Before you all go back to boogie to your No Entrys and Do Knot Disturbs, take a moment, perhaps two if you are feeling adventurous, and just listen. Your troubles might seem insignificant, and it will all be about La Vie en Rose.
