A Musical Interlude (II)

It’s time to take a break from work. Below are some musical videos to provide a few minutes of diversion. The first is one of my favorite songs, Andrew Lloyd-Weber’s Phantom of the Opera, this time with Sarah Brightman and Antonio Banderas.

You may have already seen the following video but I think this is one of the finest renditions of Lloyd-Weber’s Memory I have heard. Susan Boyle really masters Lloyd-Weber’s music.

One more Susan Boyle before moving on. Listening to her sing I Dreamed a Dream not only makes me smile but brings tears of joy. I find this rendition most inspirational, especially when I see the reactions of the judges and the audience. A true Cinderella story.

There’s something about an ABBA song that continues to enrapt audiences. Keeping with my “opera” theme, here is ABBA performing Dancing Queen at the Royal Swedish Opera.

Let’s close this interlude with one of my favorites from the 1960s — still the finest rock music era — Iron Butterfly’s In A Gadda Da Vida.

Now it’s time to get back to editing!
