Waltz Wednesdays in Review

A best-of edition, as this Waltz Wednesdays feature has now been lilting around the dance floor for three years running. Time flies, as they say!


Blue Danube was the first, and this is still one of my favorites. The best cinematic use of this piece of music evar!

This is the gold standard

Sweet Baby James is a song James Taylor considers even now, the best song he’s ever written. This is actually a little sad.

Sweetest

Marbles perform Tchaikovsky. The patience that went into creating this is unimaginable, to me.

Crazy

Mull of Kintyre proves that there is such a thing as bagpipes played well. There’s also a test but we won’t go into that now.

Pipes

America — we’re still looking for it. It may have gotten away. But back then, there was still a good shot.

Still Looking?

Indeed, time flies like an arrow. But fruit flies like a banana.

That’s Amore

Yes it’s cheesy. Yes it’s a cliche. But ignore all that for a minute:

Dude had some serious pipes.

That is all.

And So This is Christmas

Fifty years ago, this was.

Waltz of Death

I remember Batman (1989) being a really good movie. I also remember it being a movie that was distinctly NOT for kids.

This did not deter the Hollywood marketers from marketing it aggressively to kids.

More than one parent had to explain as best they could to exasperated nine-year-olds why they could NOT go see this movie!


Today

Enjoy what you have today, today.

It’s not a matter of ignoring the future, it’s a matter of not letting anticipation of something to come cloud your understanding of how lovely is what you have…

Today.
