I suppose that you could like songs performed by one of my favourite Polish artists from the new generation, Janusz Radek. These compositions belong to the genre of "sung poetry", calming and reflective:
Janusz Radek - Pocztówka z Avignon (Postcard from Avignon)
Janusz Radek - Dziękuję za miłość (Thanks for love)
Seems that we share very similar taste! Wink The two songs are really, really beautiful! Razz

Michał Bajor is a famous Polish actor and singer. Here is very monumental song from the movie "Quo Vadis" directed by Jerzy Kawalerowicz, based on the novel "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quo_Vadis_(novel)" with the same title written by Henryk Sienkiewicz: And another song inspired, in my opinion, by the 18th century French music: Enjoy! Wink

Julie Su's song is very nice and I listened to it with pleasure. But this clip is interesting also because of its visual content. Here we can see a woman who "translates" it into the sign language, but this isn't only simple translation - this is a real pantomime/dance. I have one question here: does this person live in the "world of silence" or is only teacher for others? I suppose that your choice of the clip wasn't accidental and here we can notice some coincidences with Janusz Radek's song "Postcard from Avignon". Wink

This performance reminds me series of the Mandarin Chinese Lessons made by very nice amateur teacher - Sophie Kuo. Wink Here is an example where Sophie presents gestures used to show numbers from 1 to 10: Mandarin Chinese Lesson 2 - Numbers 1 to 10

In fact, she is a teacher in dactylology. In that video, she is trying to convey the meaning of the song to the hearing impaired through her gestures / body language. Wink

Wow! You're very observant! Wink


Here is another beautiful song.

鄭中基 (Ronald Cheng) - 無賴 (Rascal)

Have a nice day! Wink

Yes, this is really nice song and I could swear that I've already heard something very similar... I can't recall what it was though... Smile

I wish to present here something also in optimistic and slightly "rogue" style: song composed by Polish poet and singer Grzegorz Turnau, sung in duet with Basia Stępniak-Wilk:
Title bonbonniere is an allusion, kind of poetic and humorous metaphor, to the male way of perceiving women. Wink Melody of this song reminds charleston from 1920's (example: Roaring Twenties - Oliver Naylor's Orchestra, 1925).

Enjoy! Wink

Now you've really surprised me, YONG. Shocked Wink

Yes, this song is definitely very good. Smile This reminds me in style compositions of the Nightwish and Evanescence ("cruel" instrumental background and sweet and slightly "witchy", "Celtic" female vocal). But this isn't in my present style also. Wink I look for music which helps me to concentrate during programming work. Asian songs are the best for me, because are performed in languages which I don't know (and, consequently, lyrics don't disturb me). Wink

So many thoughts, so many emotions, so many associations... and so few words to describe it all. Sad

thimis
These are with no doubt beautiful songs. Smile I liked especially two of them: "Eurydice" and "Sublunar". Very good, moody and haunted compositions.

First refers to well known myth about Orpheus and Eurydice, about eternal love stronger than death. Orpheus was an improbably talented musician - his divine beautiful singing had magic influence not only on humans, but also can calm down wild beasts, thunderstorms and other elements of nature. Eurydice, wood-nymph, was an Orpheus' beloved wife. Her death was caused by accidental snake bite. Orpheus decided to go to the Hades, World of Deads, and bring Eurydice to life. Gods of the Underground, moved by his courage and beautiful music agreed to free Eurydice under one condition: Orpheus can't look back during the whole return way to see Eurydice following him. Unfortunately divine musician broke agreement... Nothing can save Eurydice this time... she stayed in the Hades forever. Orpheus came back to the World of Livings alone and died shortly after this journey.

When I was four my parents gave me my first "serious" book. It was a Polish translation of the two Nathaniel Hawthorne's books: "A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys" and "Tanglewood Tales" printed in Poland as a one under the title "Opowieści z zaczarowanego lasu" ("Tales from the magic forest"). These are adaptations of the ancient Greek myths rewritten for children. I read it many times and sometimes I have a feeling that all these gods, heroes and nymphs are closer to me than other characters from the Polish literature... Wink When I was 19 I read Plato's "Symposium" ("http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symposium_(Plato)") and it was like a dynamite detonated in the center of my head - I can't calm down for a very long time... Shocked Yes, contact with a real beauty is important and necessary for us all, but at the same time it could be also very dangerous, especially when you realize that you aren't perfect in comparison to it... Wink

Let's stay for a while in this climate. Another one song about love beyond the grave. Janusz Radek performs a song with lyrics based on the poem of the Polish poet Halina Poświatowska. Very good clip made by some amateur of Janusz Radek's creations consists of pictures of the famous Polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński (gallery of his works). Beksiński was obsessed by death and influences of this dark mood are remarkable in his works.

Halina Poświatowska had a heavy heart defect which finally caused her death in age of 32. In the song presented below we can hear how this woman in love addresses her poem to the deceased husband (which also died because of heart disease). She yearns after him, describes own sorrow in the never send letters, asks if they will meet "on the other side" and afraids of the second death of the soul after the real death of the body (if they won't meet at all).Fortunately in the net exists English translation of this song lyrics:
Quote:

Untitled ("when I die my darling") - Halina Poświatowska
Translated by Marek Lugowski


when I die my darling
when I part with the sun
to become an oblong object rather sad

will you then draw me closer
embrace me
and fix what savage fate broke

I often think of you
I often write to you

silly letters -- love within them and smiles

then I hide them in the stove
let the flame jump word to word
before it calmly goes to sleep in the ashes

looking in the flame my darling
I am thinking -- what will happen
to my heart hungry for love

so please do not allow after all
for me to die in a world
which is dim and which is cold

And Polish original:
Quote:

***("kiedy umrę kochanie") - Halina Poświatowska

kiedy umrę kochanie
gdy się ze słońcem rozstanę
i będę długim przedmiotem raczej smutnym

czy mnie wtedy przygarniesz
ramionami ogarniesz
i naprawisz co popsół los okrutny

często myślę o tobie
często piszę do ciebie
głupie listy -- w nich miłość i uśmiech

potem w piecu je chowam
płomień skacze po słowach
nim spokojnie w popiele nie uśnie

patrząc w płomień kochanie
myślę -- co też się stanie
z moim sercem miłości głodnym

a ty nie pozwól przecież
żebym umarła na świecie
który ciemny jest i który jest chłodny

Maybe if I would describe better other songs I presented, you would like them also. Wink Simply I don't feel myself too good in English to describe all my emotions. Wink

Yes, I can hear in this song some uncommon musical instruments: cowbell, hand-file and maybe musical saw. These all strange sounds probably imitate those produced during sharpening the blade of scythe - main attribute of the personification of Death which use it for cutting off the head of the human "condemned to death" (in the European, especially medieval, culture Death is a skeleton dressed in the long overcoat with the hood).

It has nothing to do with how you present the song - whether or not you write a long piece of description about it; it's all about "taste-matching"! "Janusz Radek - Kiedy umrę kochanie" just perfectly fits my taste; it's that simple. I repeatedly listened to this song for hours this afternoon, and I guess I'll continue to do so in the coming couple of days ... Razz Wink

This is an utterly touching duet "live" performance.

Hayley Westenra & Honda Minako - Amazing Grace (in English and Japanese)

I'm moved. Are you? Wink

Yes, this is very beautiful melody and interesting "duet", indeed. Smile Seems, that this song is popular also in Japan, if there exists even Japanese version of lyrics.

I wish to present here also two strong, clear and "colorful" female voices. I found some time ago these interesting songs from Tatarstan (part of Russia), which are based on the folk melodies - this gives them improbable power and original sound:

In that clip, Hayley Westenra is, indeed, singing that song in memory of Honda Minako, who died a couple of years ago, which is the utterly touching part! Crying or Very sad

I agree. Smile I like very much such sunny color of (woman's) skin. This hue I can describe as something between color of the black tea with milk (named by some Poles bawarka) and peach. Wink

Along the Volga, longest European river, live many nations with original culture and amazing history. These people are descendants of ancient civilizations with roots in various places of Euro-Asian continent. Here is an example of very beautiful Chuvash song (clip also is very interesting):I bet you'll be surprised, because arrangement of this song reminds very strongly some Chinese melodies! Smile BTW, in the ornaments on the national Chuvash clothes scientists discovered motives from the Central Asia and... even Chinese ideograms from the beginning of our era.
