Fred Frith - cool.

Cabaret Voltaire

Cabaret Voltaire. European. 1973-1994. This is a little...more.....different.

Philip Glass

Two great things come together like peanut butter and toast. Here is a composer who wrote a piece for Sesame Street. This segment on Sesame Street looks familiar to me. It probably will be familiar to you too.

Lady Gaga

These are my thoughts on Lady Gaga:

She reminds me of a female version of Jeffree Star. She espouses the plasiticty and fiction that is the entertainment industry, and she embraces it. Her genuinity is unknown, but believable. Regardless of what my wife says, I have no attraction to her other than her music. Her fashion is unique and I like it. Her interviews bore me. Very high quality pop star. Madonna, eat your heart out...and have been replaced.

Vesti la giubba by Placido Domingo

I would say of all the versions of this aria, Domingo is my favorite. He is very dramatic and musical. It sounds cliche, and it may be, but he truly is one of the greatest performers of all time. The show must go on...Put on your costume!

If you're on the Youtube, check out Caruso's and Pavarotti's versions of this as well.
