What are you listening right know.

My apologies to anyone who saw me like, then unlike, a video. My browser got very confused. Every time I refreshed the page, the video posted by any particular person would change.

Grrr.

DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO - just listen to it. Whoever put up the pictures had no idea what the song was about.

I was just listening to covers of Laura Nyro's Stoney End, and most of the people sing it like it's some happy bouncy tune, which misses the point completely. This was the best sung version I heard, but seventeen big thumbs down on the video:

Which might not always be bad if it is intended, like the famous boomtowns rats' "I don't like mondays" proves.

True - and great example.

I'd always thought that about Doris Day's "Que Sera Sera". To me the lyrics express a child's desire for comforting reassurance from her mother, which is met with the honest, but less than reassuring "whatever will be, will be". Day's needlessly cheery delivery annoys me to this day. Fortunately, Pink Martini finally came along and got it right.

Doris' Version...

Pink Martini's...

You're cute when you huff.

Anybody else seeing this video merry-go-round? Every time I refresh this page the videos switch around. At the moment, everyone seems to have posted the same video, Stoney End. I think it might be time for a reboot.

Rhonda tells me that too!

I see different videos by the correct posters I believe. I did get deja vu because you made a similar post about Que Sera Sera in Hippie's thread.

No, maybe your browser, do you have a second browser to test?

I do, and it's showing broken video links in every post. Time for a reboot.

maybe the video plugin like flashplayer then, that is constant in most browsers across a system.

Windows Gremlins, I tell ya; Windows Gremlins.

My mouse started randomly bouncing around the screen a bit ago.  I finally rebooted and all is good.
