Think I need to plan a day trip to Whitstable soon!

You may recall I posted this a few weeks back. Well, Chetreo has done it again:
Again, I should hate this as the funeral song performed by Eowyn is rather moving and any ‘tampering’ would be wrong…
But again, I have been convinced otherwise. I mean it entirely when I say that this had me on the verge of tears.
Can’t wait for the Return of the King one…
I should detest this, but I’m actually loving it in a weird way. Watch for yourselves:
I was seconds from running away into a corner when the refrain came on (you shall not pass, etc). Something about the way it is mixed together just struck me. When I first found it here, I did not expect to come away humming it.

As a song I like to cover, this song has always spoken to me. The emotion behind it is what propelled me to do my take on it and often leaves me overwhelmed at the end of a performance.
However, back when I first saw the scene it comes from, I was emotionally out of whack and have just watched it again with a better emotional grounding. Wish I had some tissues to hand.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present this:
Well, I must admit that this was a surprise early this morning, but Whitney Houston has passed on at the age of 48.
All day, I’ve been thinking back through childhood memories and one specific memory has been on repeat. My mother is really to blame, but I remember many times her singing along to this particular number:
I’m not going to go on and about her life in any way. That would be a job for the media sites and press. I’m just going to enjoy the music and, more importantly, dance.
Just before bed I happened upon this via MthruF and had two main thought lines.
1) That poor girl didn’t expect this, I reckon.
2) What a way to prank someone.
Most pranks involve various levels of embarrassment, usually through some form of mockery or unfriendly set-up.
Not for Giorgio is this type of tomfoolery. The fact that he is so polite makes it somewhat sweet and actually is more likely to have put a bright edge on the order taker’s day.
Next time you want to be a bit random and silly, don’t harass your roommate. Sing.
Apologies for the long break, but I’ve been planning. Or plotting. Your choice.
I am hereby committing to at least a weekly post. If this does not happen, you can post a comment with your contact details so that I can give you my address to be kicked in the shins.
That’s a pretty big incentive for me, I’ll tell you.
Not to say that only one a week is enough. But it’s a minimum.
Oh, and why not watch this video whilst you’re here? 😉
