Go to 2:00 to see Melissa Etheridge steal "Piece of My Heart" for all eternity, while recovering from chemo:
Don't miss Melissa's scream at 4:25.
Janis and Roger Daltry, eat your heart out.

And now for something completely different. The original version of "We've Only Just Begun", as a TV commercial:


After Richard saw the TV ad, he called the composer to ask about Carpenters doing their own version.
Richard really knew how to make great arrangements, and my gosh what a voice she had:

That was cool.

A separate comment, not related to the quality of the performance: I found it amusing watching the lead singer keep his head and mouth perfectly positioned for the mic even while moving the rest of his body around, something only a seasoned studio singer would do properly. His facial hair created an impression of the head appearing large for the person's body, and in combination with his checkerboard shirt, and the head remaining mostly still while the body moved, it created a weird effect as if someone has substituted someone else's head over the person's body in the video.

Always like this version better, maybe because the fantastic original version is overplayed smile



A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

I like it. I especially like the bass part.

Do I get bonus points for bringing up Kevin Gilbert's version of Led Zep "Kashmir"?



Helmut Lotti does a live cover of Bohemian Rhapsody, including the opera section (!) When I hear those singers pulling that off it brings a tear to my eye.

Buddy Greco's verson of Rodger's & Hart's "The Lady Is A Tramp" originally recorded by Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra (featuring Edythe Wright on vocals). Buddy sings and plays the piano on this one, and IMO not only sings it wonderfully, also accompanies himself grandly.

The first time I came to Las Vegas, probably early Nineties, I saw Buddy Greco. He was playing one of the bar lounges at, I think, the Flamingo. Just a 3 piece. Pretty cool. It was after we saw Wayne Newton at the Hilton theater.
