I first heard this song on Monday on the radio. I'm impressed with how well they perform it live - a real presence.

Baghdad Nights - Naseer Shamma


A beautiful composition played on the Oud. I've been infatuated with microtonal music as of the past few months (especially played on instruments related to the lute) and stumbled upon this the other day.

These are two instrumentals that go deep and deep , questioning life as we know it . The composers and the musicians have sheer brilliance in bringing to life , the very purpose of our living .

Once our daughter , when she was 3-4 years old , panicked suddenly when this instrumental was being played in the background , pleading to have it stopped , mentioning that it was making her feel of death and parting . We were surprised that such little years , could feel as much.

1) Love Theme - Helen St. John

The Blade Runner is also very searching , though the video can distort the listening. But the footage has a meaning , since the sound track questions the violence of life , and the endless desire of more .........

2) The Blade runner End Titles by Vangelis

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

How can anyone resist a clip that compares Leonard Cohen to the Pet Shop Boys?

First we take Manhattan...

This song by Billy Joel, is on my mind these days...looking not just at the political scene in my own country, but in our dealings with others, we are so much in need of truthfulness...

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

P.S. And of course, "First We Take Manhattan" is Leonard Cohen's finest track 8-)

I have certain parts from the Nutcracker running about in my mind, if that counts, but otherwise I am listening to nothing but the sound of children and domestic hygienic machines.

I never played an instrument, but I find it funny when people who play the guitar, watch this video and say things like "Alright. Time to leave the guitar and go work as a garbage man."

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Jesus! Marie, you always have some awesome thing to put in this thread. :smile:

By the way, if you're into fingerstyle guitarists, check this one out _ that's if you don't know him yet. He's british.

I can't find a single fault in this execution. Its timing is p-e-r-f-e-c-t. If you like this, also listen to "The Impossible 2.0"
