I finally got a copy of Tchaikowsky's complete Nutcracker and complete Swan Lake. Have been looking for them for ages. Usually you just get the 'highlights'.. I hate that, I would like to decide for myself what I think the highlights are... The Swan Lake is a bit of nostalgia, when I was 4 or 5 years old I wanted to be a ballet dancer and I made up my own choreography to the music of Swan Lake... without actually knowing the story. :mrgreen:
I also got myself Genesis' We can't dance and another one by Maxim Vengerov and Virtuosi.

Sigur Rós' "Von" and "Ágætis Byrjun". After being amazed by the warm and calming "( )" I just had to buy these, I'm listening to "Ágætis Byrjun" now, such lovely songs, and music that makes you feel like a feotus in a womb - wow!

As for the age of 'Come Josephine...', if you think about it, a lot of traditional songs are much older than that - look at some O'Carolan stuff - so it doesn't personally surprise me that the lyrics survived.

Are you interested in Titanic IrishGirlm? Me and elizabeth both are (excuse me saying that for you Lizzie :) :oops: ).
Maybe we should open a 'history discussion' section on the forum :wink:
Everyone tell me what you think, and if the idea is popular, I'll do it :)
Maybe for my 100th post, which can't be too far away now :mrgreen:
Slán - Grania

Hey Grania,

that would be great! A history topic on this forum about "Titanic"? Great idea! :D :mrgreen: I'm very interested about "Titanic", I've watched the film very often; I couldn't say how much. My boyfriend and I will watch the video at home.

Slán, IrishGirlm

I may well take you up on that one then IrishGirlm! What does everyone else think?

Talking of soundtracks - I got the King Arthur soundtrack about two days ago and it is AWESOME, in case you didn't know already :D

The King Arthur soundtrack is really good, I still haven't see the film though.

I bought "Want One" by Rufus Wainwright the other day. My mam saw him on Jonathan Ross' show a week or two ago and thought he was amazing, played me some samples off his website and so I bought this, his last album. His up-coming album "Want Two" is out in the USA now, but I can't wait for its UK release! Wonderful guy, check him out!

You HAVE to see that film Barry!!!!! It has little or no bearing on the 'original' legend of King Arthur - but it is a really good film. And of course the's Moya's, need I say more?? :lol:

The altest additions are:

Goldfrapp "Black Cherry" - fantastic album, I've been wanting it for ages. My favourite tracks include "Crystalline Green", "Black Cherry", "Hairy Trees" and "Strict Machine". Brilliantly funky and strange - buy it!

Miles Davis "An Introduction To", Miles was recommended to me a year ago by a guy I once worked with who was really into Jazz. I was curious as I like some Jazz, most of this album I like, but there are some tracks I class as 'Crazy Headache Jazz' which I don't enjoy as it's crazy and gives me a headache, but some of the softer, less crazy tracks I enjoy.

I can vouch for Barry's judgement there, that album is indeed very good, as I borrowed it from a friend then ordered in from Amazon the next day! :)

I LOVE crystalline green! :D
