Canada

I'll stay within the rules by selecting very popular songs, just ones that I still like. No Rush though, fantastic but too obvious.

The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgI8bta-7aw#)
Gordon Lightfoot is, was, and always will be brilliant. A classic Canadian song to honour American men who died in shared waters.

The Tragically Hip - New Orleans Is Sinking (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaeEopDW0V4#)
The Tragically Hip at their best. 16 years pre Katrina, by the way. Around the time I finished high school everybody was playing Up to Here.

Ukraine.

Volodymyr Ivasyuk. The cult Ukrainian composer and songwriter/poet from the 70th. Was murdered by the Soviet government in 1977 in the age of 30 (in their ‘official’ version it was listed as ‘suicide’) and after his funeral - here in L’viv - turned into the protest action his songs were forbidden until the fall of ussr. Although usually performed by other musicians his songs fit the rules of this thread perfectly, especially regarding of the lasting impact and patriotic identification (even though these are love songs) and of course it has nothing to do with eurovision/rap crap:

Volodymyr Ivasyuk – The song will be amongst us (lyrics and music by Volodymyr Ivasyuk)

Пісня поміж нас співає Володимир Івасюк (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6fY-ne_e2M#)

Taras Chubay – Waterfall (lyrics and music by Volodymyr Ivasyuk)

Водограй-Waterfall.wmv (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SU-ZgunKaM#)

Pikkardiyska Tertsiya – The old tram (Ukrainian song)

I like neither of your rules, hitch - is there any special reasoning behind there? Especially the "must be very famous"-rule does not make any sense from my point of view (if it's supposed to be about good music). Also limiting it to special genres is quite blinkered I think

Im not limiting it to genres, you can post any genre you want. I only said no rap because this is the music section and i dont consider rap to be  music.

As for being famous, the reasoning behind this, is I wanted to find/remind myself of music one may have already heard, and also search out the songs which countries identify themselves with.

Also when i meet a person from that country knowing a well known song is a good conversation starter eg with higher iq brazilians Ipanema or lower iq brazilians Ai se eu te pegu

But since noone is playing by the rules, go ahead, post away whatever non english language song tickles your fancy, but i will give thank yous to nominations which do match the rules.

sorry Hitch, somehow I try to understand your point of view, but music is something which comes from the heart. By leaving out certain genres a priori and judging by famosity - or even going that far to limit the recognition of certain music to people's IQ - you just close your own mind to the beautiful experience of music

If yiu go that way then anything can count as music. i could burp and play it on a 3 minute loop and call it music.

To me for something to be music somebody needs to have taken the trouble to learn how to play a musical instrument and how to sing.

To use a computer and a talking voice because one hasnt taken the time to develop a musical talent nor ones.voice is to me a shortcut that cuts out the whole process. Its like somebody calling themself proffessor of chemistry because they watched breaking bad.

Btw my music- non music magiot line isnt as poorly created and fortified as you may think. There was an experiment on spiders some years back ( and spiders evolved audio sensors totally seperately to our own ears) where thry played different types of music to the arachnids. When classical music.was played the spiders.moved towards the speajers and built their webs next to or even on the speakers. When rap was played they not  only didnt move towards the speajers they actually moved away to the other side of the room.

Nature itself makes a very similar distinction between what is and is not music to myself. ;)

I think you take a bit too much of the easy way by comdemning all music made using a computer. It takes a lot of skills and also musical talent to so it properly. I also would not regard the computer as the "instrument" itself, it's more like it's offering the possibility of combining different skills and ideas. I don't think you will find many (good) producers which are not extraordinary musicians and do not play at least the drums and/or piano.

Of course you could download an easy software solution and make a beat in a couple of minutes, but I could also buy myself a fiddle and record a track - it will end up equally bad

funny thing is most 4/4 electronic music is built on the same music make up as classical

so when they banned dance music gatherings in the UK the really also banned classic music events as well  ;D

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bianca_(cantora)

"Bianca ... was a singer Brazilian. With a fleeting career, was one of the phenomena of radio in the early '80s and became an icon of a generation of young post- military dictatorship ."

"The songs, which contained many slang fashion, as "pit", "face" and "crickets" were full of romanticism style Beatles and spicy with a touch of rebellion and existential crisis."

"Much has been speculated about the whereabouts of Bianca, who since the mid- 80s has completely disappeared from the music scene without a trace. The total anonymity of the singer gave rise to rumors in cyberspace about suicide and overdose of drugs ... However, nothing has been officially confirmed and the fate of the singer remains an intriguing mystery to his legion of fans and admirers."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teresa_Teng

"Teresa Teng ... was a Taiwanese Chinese pop singer. Teng's voice and songs are instantly recognized throughout East Asia and in areas with large Asian populations. It is often said, "Wherever there are Chinese people, the songs of Teresa Teng can be heard." Her songs enjoy popularity among Indonesian, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Malaysian, Thai and Vietnamese listeners as well."

"Teng's singing style conveyed simplicity and sincerity. Her voice was also described as being "like weeping and pleading, but with strength, capable of drawing in and hypnotizing listeners." Songwriter Tsuo Hung-yun said Teng's voice was "seven parts sweetness, three parts tears.""

"In the early 1980s, continuing political tension between mainland China and Taiwan led to her music, along with that of other singers from Taiwan and Hong Kong, being banned for several years in mainland China as too "bourgeois". Her popularity in China continued to grow nonetheless thanks to the black market. As Teng songs continued to be played everywhere, from nightclubs to government buildings, the ban on her music was soon lifted. Her Chinese fans nicknamed her "Little Deng" because she had the same family name as Deng Xiaoping; it was said that Deng the Communist leader ruled China by day, but that Deng the singer ruled China by night."

"Teng, a lifelong sufferer from asthma, died in 1995 from a severe respiratory attack while on holiday in Thailand. She was 42."

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

In happiness nor in sorrow, am I
Neither clean, nor a filthy mire
Not from water, nor from earth
Neither fire, nor from air, is my birth

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

Not an Arab, nor Lahori
Neither Hindi, nor Nagauri
Hindu, Turk (Muslim), nor Peshawari
Nor do I live in Nadaun

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

Secrets of religion, I have not known
From Adam and Eve, I am not born
I am not the name I assume
Not in stillness, nor on the move

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

I am the first, I am the last
None other, have I ever known
I am the wisest of them all
Bulleh! do I stand alone?

Bulleh! to me, I am not known

Don't know how this became "Recommended for you" on Youtube, but it's really good.

I may even buy the CD.  :o

[Boudewijn De Groot - Strand]

My favourite is still Jimmy, though. I shared it here but apparently it no longer works.


So since Johnny Hallyday has been diagnosed lung cancer, I'd share with you one of his biggest hits and the only one he wrote. This is probably his last fight.  :(

All the music I love

Comes from there, comes from the blues

I put my joys and my pains into it

And all this becomes the blues

I'm singing it as much as I love it. Yeah I'll always sing it

A long time ago on the guitars, black hands gave birth to it... :playlist

Geneviève Grad - Do you Do you Saint-Tropez  :D

Music composed by Raymond Lefèvre for the film "Le gendarme de Saint-Tropez", the first film of the famous series starring Louis de Funès (in my opinion, best actor of all time) and featuring Geneviève Grad as his daughter. Some of the best French comedies ever, so simple. I would have loved to be 20 year old in the sixties. Those people really had beautiful lives, unlike my generation.

Ram Govind Hari Bhajo Re Bhaiyyaa
O devotee,
Sing the names of the Lord
Sing Ram, Govind, Hari


Jap Tap Saadhan Kachhu Nahin Laagat
Kharchat Nahin Gatthree
Ram Govind Hari Bhajo Re Bhaiyyaa
Singing the name
Needs no chanting, no penance, no practice
Really, it takes no expense from your pocket
O devotee,
Sing the names of the Lord


Santat Sampat Sukh ke Kaaran
Jaa Se Bhool Pari
The wealth and treasures of this world
The progeny, the next generation
Are all apparent sources of happiness
But in fact they are distractions
That makes one lose his path in this world


Kehat Kabeeraa Jaa Mukh Ram Nahin
Wo Mukh Dhool Bharee
Ram Govind Hari Bhajo Re Bhaiyyaa
Listen o devotees, Kabeer says thus
The tongue on which
The name of Ram does not reside
Is as good as full of dust
O devotee,
Sing the names of the Lord
