Yesterday, I came across this song which triggered the most beautiful memories of a beautiful time in my life. Not many words, just this song for you to enjoy. Have a great weekend!

I Would Do It Again!

This is not only the title of the first song I ever recorded, but also I performed this song at the Life festival in our country last Friday as my last song. BUT it is also what I thought after the performance. The place was completely filled with people singing, dancing, and clapping hands. Dear friends drove over an hour from Germany to get here, one of my sisters and her son came over from Vienna… It was indescribable!

#SongTuesday

Happy Tuesday, everybody. Coldplay published sooo many great songs in the past. Still, there is one that stands out for me. It was released when I was about to see more about life than ever before. It was a time of profound discovery and the beginning of a neverending journey in a new direction, and this song has been a companion. Which song of Coldplay do you like best?

#SongTuesday

When I scheduled today’s poem, I noticed a chorus began playing in my mind which goes so well along with the feeling of just escaping and feeling a new freedom. When even the lyrics are not really fitting the poem’s story, I felt like sharing it today. I am glad the poem reminded me of this beautiful song which I haven’t heard in ages. Happy Tuesday, everybody!

Simply Awesome!

latterdaysaintmusicians.com

After I shared “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by Jared Halley, Colin, of MeAndRay, told me to check out Halley’s version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Really, I have no words for what talent and, at the same time, genius in coordination he is. The man has no instrument to rely on but hits every singly note precisely and is always on time with every instrument he “imitates”. Listen to that electric guitar. You would not believe there is a voice.

Friday Song

I heard a beautiful version of “Country Roads” this morning. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it on YouTube, BUT…. I found something even better. This cover version is fantastic in general, but also because the artist does every voice and instrument himself, AND because of the creative video. This guy is amazing! But check it out for yourselves.

#SongTuesday

Here is a song I could hear all day. It is super short but super cool too. It is impossible to sit still. There are quite a lot of remixes out there also, long ones. But I still prefer this one. So, enjoy and have a quick but intense energy boost to your day. Happy Tuesday!

#MomentsOfJoy

For this #MomentsOfJoy, I thought of a song that always manages to make me smile and dance. The song itself has this effect on me but also takes me back to the time it was published. I was 13 and as usual, we spent a part of the summer break in Vienna. When I heard this song, I loved it so much that I made it the first song I bought on a single (like the one below).

Chris Mann

Yesterday I stumbled over Chris Mann due to a Corona parody video. I checked out more of his songs and couldn’t believe my ears. His voice and his way of expression are outstanding. I listened to some of his records and found versions of You Raise Me Up and Hallelujah. I had not thought that there someone is able to top the ones I called my favorite versions. Both were moving me to tears.

“Imagine Love” and guitar sounds in Santa Monica

Yesterday, Colin of MeAndRay shared a song of Scott Jacobs whom he saw performing live as a street entertainer. Colin liked the voice and the song and bought a CD. In our following discussion, I mentioned that I experienced the same twice in Southern California. Colin asked me to share songs of those artists too.

Want to hear me sing classical music?

Many of you know that I am a singer. I produced 11 songs (rock/pop/ballads) so far and published them on my blog. But actually, I am a classical singer. I have sung at several concerts in halls and churches, with big and small orchestras and bands, have been booked by choirs or for big official events for the entertainment part. I played and sang leading parts in little musicals, and won both contests I participated in many years ago. Still, I don’t have a lot of digital recordings where you can hear my classical voice. That’s why I am happy I can share an Ave Maria with you which I sang in church a few weeks ago.

They Still Rock!!

IMG_20190706_223344.jpg

Last Saturday I had tickets for Status Quo. They were the main act at an annual festival in our country. Of course, they look older BUT boy did they bring the hall to a full boil! It was already a hot day and hot inside but nobody cared. We jumped, danced sang, clapped our hands, … It was an amazing experience and I felt like a teenager again hearing those songs again.

Pursue Your Dreams

IMG_20190406_184641.jpg

This is the wall tattoo above my bed. I see it daily and it still speaks to me. I often write about dreams and how they trigger our intention to try something new or to explore new fields. Those dreams are like a preview of something we desire to be or to have. They can generate new courage and strength to take steps with conviction and determination towards the realization of that dream.  Read more ›

#RomanticTuesday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Lately, I heard the original version of the song I am sharing today. It reminded me of the version with which I was introduced to this song in 1982. It was sung by a popular German opera singer of that time. The original song was released in 1965 by Frankie Valli. You know I am an opera singer and therefore I want to share the 1982 version. Enjoy! Read more ›

Monday Song

Good morning and happy Monday to everyone. We had a wonderful time in Vienna celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday. She did not expect us to come over and so the joy was even greater on both sides. My mom is truly the rock for us three daughters. Whatever it is, she is there. I am happy and thankful we have her. Read more ›

Don’t Regret – Become A Better Person

Bildergebnis für benjamin zander quotes

Recently, Colin of MeAndRay.com shared a wonderful link with me. It is a Ted Talk with the conductor Benjamin Zander. He is talking about the transformative power of classical music. No, this won’t become a post about classical music. What went so deep were Zander’s profound insights about life and beyond which he incorporated in his talk.“I will never say anything that couldn’t stand as the last thing I ever say.” This was the vow of a woman who survived Auschwitz. Zander told the story of that woman at the end of his talk. It is the inspiration for this post. I will try keeping this post shorter than my usual Monday posts because I want you to listen to that talk. Something wonderful will happen inside of you. Read more ›

My sis, Ritu over at ButISmileAnyway has a challenge going for March called #musicalmarch. If you would like to participate read more about it here. 

I usually don’t post a song on the weekends but due to my sister’s challenge, I cannot resist doing so. I thought I’d pick some songs I would not post on a regular Song-of-the-Day post. So here I go with a song by Connie Francis from 1961. The 60’s were a time when many artists performed in German (think of The Beatles or even Elvis Presley). I love her voice and her songs were so typical for the 60’s sound.  Read more ›

Just back from my wonderful friendship meetings in the States. It was hard to leave as always. But I know that I will be back soon. It is so wonderful to have friends all over the world!

Song of the Day

I heard this song yesterday on the radio and knew I had to post it today. The song moved me a lot because that is what we experience here every day. I know I repeat myself but what we find here on this blogsphere is still a miracle to me. We live a concept which is the recipe of peace and healing. We are experiencing a gathering and connection of spirits with different origines and different kinds of lives. We not only want to be part of other people’s circle but also want to have others in our circle. We experience the magic and power of oneness. When it is possible to live this concept in the small then it is possible to apply it in every part of our lives and in the world itself.

I choose the original video for this song. It leads into the matter in a wonderful way.

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don’t you think it’s time?
When we stand together, it’s our finest hour
We can do anything, anything
We’re believing in the power Read more ›

Song of the Day: Crucified

Lately I stumbled over a song I often heard in the morning when driving to work in 1991. The band is pretty “special” and so is the video.

International Song of the Day

I felt like making Wednesday my “international” song of the day. I would like to post songs from different countries or in different languages. Here in Europe we are used to listening to several languages such as French, Italian, Spanish, or many others. I would like to start with a song of an Israeli woman. The song was released in the late 70s but only the remix of 1988 made it into the European charts. It even is partly English. I always loved that song and listening to it again I have to say I still do!!! Enjoy! Read more ›

Therefore I felt like posting one of my ultimate favorite songs which makes my mood growing to the max! Read more ›

When I looked to the mountains yesterday I couldn’t resist to take a picture. It was too beautiful. Day and night playing with the light and this single big bright shining star on the top sparkling in the darkening evening sky. I immediately had this song in mind – passionate and magical like the evening sky. Read more ›

Song of the Day

Do you remember who’s Axel Foley? Yes, that’s Eddy Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop. Did you know that actually Silvester Stallone was supposed to play Axel? They did exchange him because the costs for the action scenes exploded. When Eddy Murphy was called they simply turned the action scenes into comedy scenes. A completely different movie. Thank God!!! Because it is just great the way it turned out. Read more ›

Today’s song is something very special. I love Paul McCartney and here he is with Linda McCartney.

Hot Californian Dreams!

Yesterday a friend posted a song that reminded me to my beautiful California. I felt again how much I already miss it. Since I had to let go of my best friend I did not want to go there too soon.

Song of the day!

Music is half of my life. I can’t imagine my life without music – no matter what style. I love to listen to music but I love even  more to make music. Music is vibration. Music is expression. Music carries endless messages and it doesn’t matter whether with or without lyrics. We can express our feelings through a song. When we are open-hearted we get insights, solutions, or confirmations when a certain song is played at the right moment.

I often speak through songs. That means when I have something important to say to someone I pick a song which expresses what I want to transmit. I used music this way all my life. Read more ›
