Jack’s Winning Words 8/25/16
“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” (Aldous Huxley) I was asked recently, “What’s your favorite music?” I answered that “I’m eclectic!”… classical, country, hymns, dance, jazz and some rap. When writing, I like to listen to “Mozart for the Mind.” Someone wrote, “God had a good idea when he thought up music.” Oh, and I like to listen to the “Sousalarm,” a Sousa march played on the radio at 7:15 each morning. ;-) Jack
FROM TARMART REV: You didn't ask, but "four-part harmony, Southern Gospel" every day and all through the week!! 0;-====JACK: I first learned to appreciate 4-part Gospel music when the Old Fashioned Revival Hour quartet sang, "This World Is Not My Home."====REV: Remember them as well singing on the program.====JACK: Another one was, "Just a Little Talk With Jesus."
FROM CK IN MICHIGAN: Ok, that sounded like some kind of alternative band. Jam on Jack!😀 off to Milwaukee,enjoy friend.====JACK: When you get to Milwaukee, you might hear Frankie Yankovic's alternative band play this polka song (you can Google it).
In heaven there is no beer. That's why we drink it here.
And when we're all gone from here Our friends will be drinking all the beer.
I forgot to add polka to my list of favorite music.
FROM BB IN ILLINOIS: Now I have to listen to your favorites.====JACK: I like "Send in the Clowns." I first heard it when our pianist played it as I walked down the aisle to begin the Sunday Church Service.
FROM SBP IN FLORIDA: Well, I like the song, "Send in the Clowns", but I wonder how I would have received it If I just knew the title. When I was at MHS, there was an early morning radio program of classical music, The 400 Hour, To which I listened every day. I was the only fan in my family, Now, my favorite is SIRIUSXMPOP.CLASSICAL....I love "Music of the Night "as well as "Bring in the Clowns."====JACK: I, too, listened to The 400 Hour of classical music from Chicago. It was sponsored by the Chicago Northwestern Railroad which had a fast passenger train which traveled between Chicago and the Twin Cities. It was named The 400, because the distance between the cities was 400 miles.====SBP: A Chopin Nocturne was played now and then. I was always saddened by it. To me , it sounded like a woman weeping. She was painfully sad. I haven’t heard it since. And, though it was bittersweet, I liked it.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: MUSIC! Whatever would we do without it?! I, too, love so many different kinds! Classical, Barbershop, Broadway tunes, Sacred, Big Band era, folk, some country,...not a fan of rap or jazz, but do want to see HAMILTON in rap!~! The magic of music can soothe the soul!====JACK: I liked "The Music Man" where Prof Harold Hill was able to teach kids how to appreciate and play music...."The Think System!"
FROM PEPPERMINT MARY: Don't have to convince me of that♡====JACK: You were fortunate to have been born into it. Yours is one of the most musical families that I have ever known.
