There's a nice interview in Florida Today

18 December, 2014 Posted by: REReader
Here's a sample:

Q: If you could go back and do one thing over in your career, what would it be and why?

A: There really isn't anything I would do different. It has been an incredible journey and a learning experience. When I went on "American Idol," I had only been singing and playing guitar for one year, so I have learned a lot along the way. I learned how the business works, and I learned how to be creative. I think the best is yet to come.

There's lot's of good stuff in the piece, so go and take a look.


Thanks for the find, beckyvee!

It's obligatory, even! After all

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" by Edward Pola and George Wyle, sung by...um. I'm not actually sure. I think they call themselves A Cappella Collab, but that might be a project rather than the group. To be safe, then--the singers are Jean-Baptiste Craipeau, Simon Craipeau, Andrew Kesler, and Evan Sanders:

(I think they did a nice job of de-treacle-ing the song, don't you? But perhaps not quite as good a job as this one:



Heh.)


Also, because it is still Chanukah, have another traditional Chanukah song--"Al Hanisim," melody by Dov Frimer, sung by the Amudai Shaish Boys Choir:

(I picked this version because I had that album! It's such a perfect illustration of the word "dated"--have you even seen or heard anything more totally 1980?)

The annual Castro Family Christmas cover!

17 December, 2014 Posted by: REReader
To quote Jason's Twitter feed:

The annual Castro Family Christmas cover is up! We covered "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"! Share it... http://fb.me/7b3OLzS2A


(Seriously, why am I having to quote this for you? Follow Jason on Twitter already!)

Anyway, for the click averse, here you go:



The song doesn't fit my theme, but the cover is truly lovely.

It's the first night of Chanukah!

16 December, 2014 Posted by: REReader


In honor of which--surprise!--two (count 'em, two!) Chanukah songs.

The first is the Maccabeats' "Candlelight" (melody by Taio Cruz, new lyrics by David Block and Immanuel Shalev):


Video by Uri Westrich

And in case you were wondering about the lyrics in "Candlelight" that run,

We say ma'oz tzur
Oh, yeah, for all eight nights,


that is the second song, a very traditional (probably written in the 13th century--that's a long tradition!) Chanukah song.

"Ma'oz Tzur," sung by students of Technion:

Guess what? It's not snowing here!

Or raining, even. However, I'm not letting that stop me from bringing you a...

"Winter Wonderland" by Richard B. Smith and Felix Bernard, as sung by Jason Mraz:

How's that for an acoustic version? I love it! I also love the Eurythmics' rendition, so rather than choose, have both:

Have another in honor of the other holiday!

"Light One Candle" by Peter Yarrow, sung by Peter, Paul, and Mary:


Video by ShoutFactoryMusic

The song was debuted during Peter, Paul, and Mary's 1982 Holiday Concert at Carnegie Hall (with the New York Choral Society), and if you count as they sing, you will note that they do indeed "light one candle" eight times, which is entirely appropriate for Chanukah! But the lyrics also lend themselves to less holiday-specific meanings, as in the rendition below:

What the hey, let's go for a

"Sleigh Ride" by Leroy Anderson and Mitchell Parish, as sung by the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald:

And for quite a different take on the song, here is Pentatonix singing the same song (including the middle bit that Ella--and most other singers--skips:

(In the second video, "Sleigh Ride" is followed by a rendition of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." That ain't part of my series!)

Is anyone else feeling a little run-over right about now?

"We Need a Little Christmas" by Jerry Herman, sung by (who else?) Angela Lansbury:

(I have to tell you that I went through pages of YouTube videos of this song, but no one sings it like the original Mame!)
