Even Simon genuinely smiled! There's a few, I counted two, slightly off-notes (everyone's gotta be a critic) but overall his voice is astounding for a "working-class guy." Bless the working class, we do have class after all! I first heard this song at the conclusion of the movie, Sum of All Fears, where the CIA agent ... not the Ryan character played by Affleck, the other one ... goes around assassinating all the nasty culprits who dared to nuke the Super Bowl in Baltimore. I loved the movie, and loved the book which I read before the movie and did NOT find the movie disappointing, probably because I think Tom Clancy has his hands in the movies made from his books. The ending is classic and the music chosen is classic and the two are now inextricably linked in my mind.
I have not heard another song on this planet that explores the depth and range on the male voice. Puccini did good!
When contemplating and ruminating for this post, it struck me that I never listen to music when I'm crafting. How odd is that? I'm trying to figure that out. I dearly LOVE music ... I love the transcendence music can give to the listener. But when I'm working on things, I'd rather have the TV turned on to some nature show, or popping in a favorite DVD. The entire series of Downton Abbey, both seasons, have been the backdrop of many of my sewing sessions. In fact, Season 2 was "viewed" entirely in my sewing room. The costuming of the series makes me drool, so perhaps by listening/viewing during sewing sessions, it makes me try harder? In hopes that I will be able to make those luscious garments for myself some day??
Who knows. Maybe it's because when I listen to music I dearly like, my feet have to move. Like, dance move. Hard to sew, crochet, spin or do any sort of handwork whilst the feet are moving. And for the music to which dance is not inspired ... my feet don't move when listening to Nessun Dorma ... perhaps it's what the music is doing to my mind (and heart). Perhaps there's just no more synapses available to handle the details of handwork?
Ooopsie!! Edited to add (I learn new things every day hahahaaaa):
