DANCE TO THE MUSIC

Dance to the music
under the stars at night.
Dance to the music
of all time lullabies.
Dance to the music
of your own beat and rhythm.
Dance to the music
that your own heart has chosen.

P!NK AND HER FATHER JIM MOORE

This appears as a hidden track on I’m Not Dead

Trib

It’s a duet between Pink and her father, James T. Moore.

As she explains before the song, her father wrote it while serving in Vietnam.

As a child, Pink used to accompany her father to Veterans’ centers and sing it with him – it was the first song she ever learned, ever performed and is, in fact, how she learned to sing.

It’s a tribute to her father and to war veterans everywhere.

~LYRICS~

(Instrumental Intro featuring Lindsey Stirling)

(Fraser)
There’s no time for us.
There’s no place for us.
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?

(Remi)
Who wants to live forever?
Who wants to live forever? Oh,

(Clifton)
There’s no chance for us.
It’s all decided for us.
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us.

(Victor)
Who wants to live forever?
Who dares to love forever?
Oooh, Ahh,

(Clifton)
Who dares to live forever? Woah,
When love must die.

(Instrumental break featuring Lindsey Stirling)

(Fraser/Remi)
But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips

(All)
And we can have forever,
And we can love forever.
(Victor)
Forever is our today.

(All)
Who wants to live forever?
Who wants to live forever?
Forever is ours,

(Fraser)
Who wants forever anyway?

(Instrumental close featuring Lindsey Stirling)

Who doesn’t love a good vampire scene set in a haunted castle?

In The Tenors’ video for their cover of Queen’s “Who Wants To Live Forever,” from their latest album Under One Sky, the quartet are vampires lamenting their immortality. The clip also features violinist Lindsey Stirling who contributed to the song.

Directed by Matěj Pichler, the video was shot in a historic castle in Prague, which locals have rumored is haunted by a previous family who inhabited the space 300 years ago.

Google Doodle for today … “Bartolomeo Cristofori’s 360th birthday”!!

Who invented the piano?

Google doodle marks Bartolomeo Cristofori‘s 360th birthday

Google’s latest doodle celebrates the 360th birthday of Bartolomeo Cristofori, the man widely credited with inventing the piano.

Cristofori was born in Padua on this day in 1655 in what was then the Republic of Venice.

According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, the instrument Cristofori invented was referred to during his lifetime as a harpsichord that plays soft and loud, from which its name is derived. In Italian, the phrase is gravicembalo col piano e forte.

On the blog dedicated to its doodles, Google wrote that one of Cristofori’s

“biggest innovations was creating a hammer mechanism that struck the strings on a keyboard to create sound. The use of a hammer made it possible to produce softer or louder sounds depending upon how light or hard a player pressed on the keys”.

C11

It added: “Being able to change the volume was a major breakthrough. And that’s exactly what doodler Leon Hong wanted to highlight in this interactive doodle.”

Cristofori’s entry in Encyclopaedia Britannica notes that little is known of his life and that his invention was not well known in his lifetime, even if it has since become ubiquitous.

It reads:

“Cristofori apparently invented the piano around 1709, and, according to contemporary sources, four of his pianos existed in 1711.”

Bartolomeo Cristofori di Francesco (May 4, 1655 – January 27, 1731) was an Italian maker of musical instruments, generally regarded as the inventor of the piano.

Cristofori was born in Padua in the Republic of Venice. Nothing is known of his early life. A tale is told that he served as an apprentice to the great violin maker Nicolò Amati, based on the appearance in a 1680 census record of a “Christofaro Bartolomei” living in Amati’s house in Cremona. However, as Stewart Pollens points out, this person cannot be Bartolomeo Cristofori, since the census records an age of 13, whereas Cristofori according to his baptismal record would have been 25 at the time. Pollens also gives strong reasons to doubt the authenticity of the cello and double bass instruments sometimes attributed to Cristofori.

Probably the most important event in Cristofori’s life is the first one of which we have any record: in 1688, at age 33, he was recruited to work for Prince Ferdinando de Medici. Ferdinando, a lover and patron of music, was the son and heir of Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany. Tuscany was at a time still a small independent state.

The evidence — all circumstantial — that Cristofori may have been hired as an inventor is as follows. According to Stewart Pollens, there were already a number of qualified individuals in Florence who could have filled the position; however, the Prince passed them over, and paid Cristofori a higher salary than his predecessor. Moreover, Pollens notes, “curiously, [among the many bills Cristofori submitted to his employer] there are no records of bills submitted for Cristofori’s pianofortes … This could mean that Cristofori was expected to turn over the fruits of his experimentation to the court.” Lastly, the Prince was evidently fascinated with machines (he collected over forty clocks, in addition to a great variety of elaborate musical instruments), and would thus be naturally interested in the elaborate mechanical action that was at the core of Cristofori’s work on the piano.
