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.

So Beethoven didn't compose music? O_o

    Taiwan



    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."

    Not a believer inside the mosque, am I
    Nor a pagan disciple of false rites
    Not the pure amongst the impure
    Neither Moses, nor the Pharoh

    Bulleh! to me, I am not known

    Not in the holy Vedas, am I
    Nor in opium, neither in wine
    Not in the drunkard`s craze
    Niether awake, nor in a sleeping daze

    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.
