Diner Christmas Music 2015 Edition: Mormon Tabernacle Choir- Carol of the Bells
« Reply #1006 on: December 21, 2015, 07:47:35 PM »
...and now after the Light Show from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra for the Carol of the Bells, here is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir doing their rendition.  Say what you will about the Mormons, they took Choir singing to a whole new level.  You gotta be the best Mormon singer in your Church to have a shot at getting into the Tabernacle Choir.

DD Juke Box V2.0: Leonard Cohen- Everybody Knows Video Playlist
« Reply #1015 on: December 25, 2015, 11:50:43 PM »
As Every Diner Knows, Everybody Knows by Leonard Cohen is my theme song.

I'm not the only person out there who finds this song meaningful enough they have to create something to go with it, and there are at least 4 different Fan Videos I have located so far illustrating the feelings and ideas Leonard wrote about oh so long ago now in the 1960s, but as relevant, if not more relevant today than they were back then.

The Playlist is on Diner You Tube now.  There are familiar ones to regular Diners in there, and one new one I just found as well.  It brings in artwork, specifically Picasso.

EVERYBODY KNOWS.

DD Juke Box V2.0: RIP David Bowie
« Reply #1016 on: January 11, 2016, 01:48:10 AM »
Never was a huge fan of Bowie, but he definitely was a major force in rock music.

I remember him best in his role as "The Man who Fell to Earth"

David Bowie, rock star, dies at 69
Iconic, innovative singer who released an album on Friday, had battled cancer for 18 months
January 11, 2016 2:45AM ET

David Bowie, the innovative rocker whose career touched five decades, has died after a battle with cancer. Bowie turned 69 on Friday, the same day he released a new album.

"David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer, " read a statement posted on the rock star’s official social media accounts.

Born David Robert Jones, the singer-songwriter moved through genres including glam rock, art rock, soul, hard rock and dance music.

After releasing his first self-titled album in 1967, the singer first gained notice with the song "Space Oddity" in 1969. His 1971 album "Hunky Dory" is widely considered one of the best rock albums of all time, spawning “Changes” a perennial hit.

Bowie’s artistic breakthrough came with 1972’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, an album that fostered the notion of rock star as space alien, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The stuttering rock sound of "Changes" gave way to the disco soul of "Young Americans," co-written with John Lennon, to a droning collaboration with Brian Eno in Berlin that produced "Heroes."

Starting at the beginning of the 1980s, he turned to more danceable sounds, in sync with the new wave and disco movements coming into vogue, with hits like and "Under Pressure," the 1981 collaboration with Queen and "Let's Dance" in 1983.

"My entire career, I've only really worked with the same subject matter," Bowie told The Associated Press in a 2002 interview. "The trousers may change, but the actual words and subjects I've always chosen to write with are things to do with isolation, abandonment, fear and anxiety -- all of the high points of one's life."

His performance of "Heroes" was a highlight of a concert for rescue workers after the 2001 World Trade Center attacks.

"What I'm most proud of is that I can't help but notice that I've affected the vocabulary of pop music. For me, frankly, as an artist, that's the most satisfying thing for the ego."

Bowie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, and was ranked 39th on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and 23rd on their list of best singers of all time. He was the first major recording artist to release a song only on the Internet, according to IMDB.

Born on Jan. 8, 1947 in London, he changed his name to Bowie in the 1960s to avoid confusion with Davy Jones, the lead singer of The Monkees, according to IMBD.

An androgynous figure with changeable voice, Bowie declared himself bisexual in 1972, according to a biography on IMDB, only five years since male homosexuality had been decriminalized in the UK.

Bowie married the supermodel Imam in 1992. In 2013, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum mounted an exhibition that included his costumes, set designs and music videos.

He was listed as one of the richest British born pop stars in the world. Heat magazine listed his earnings for the year 2001 at over $30 million.

Bowie kept a low profile in recent years after reportedly suffering a heart attack in the 2000s. He made a moody album three years ago called "The Next Day" — his first recording in a decade which was made in secret in New York City.

The Los Angeles Times called Bowie’s latest album a collaboration with a jazz quintet, “fierce and unsettling — and sometimes as beautiful — as anything in Bowie’s one-of-a-kind catalog.” The Wall Street Journal described it as “Ziggy Stardust plays jazz” adding, “the delicious conceit of David Bowie conspiring with modern jazz artists is fulfilled beautifully.”

GO TOP 50 Classic CHANGES                                            David Bowie

This is the only one of his I adored. His best by far IMO  Rest of his stuff didn't work for me, but he was quite a force as you say RE.

Love all those Summer of Love photos.

 I was just a kid when the Airplane hit their stride. Kantner had interesting karma. He almost died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1980. Remember that?
