Goodbye - Ulrich Schnauss (Memories of Tristan)

Heaven
Help take me back
To the dream-world
Life has been just once
Answer my prayer
Take away all the fear
And let me fall asleep
Let me fall asleep
Fall asleep

You know
You'll have to let it go
Don't cry
So hard to say goodbye

He will never return
Never again be part of what was once
Felt so secure
Just adored
But it is getting oh so cold
It is getting cold
Getting cold

You know
You'll have to let it go
Don't cry
So hard to say goodbye

So hard to say goodbye

You'll have to let it go

So hard to say goodbye

It's all over

He said

~~~

I watched a video of Robbie Williams covering Bohemian Rhapsody live. He cheated by including most of the Queen harmony section as a video. But he doesn't seem to have the range to sing many of the high parts of the song. I'd have to judge his attempt as a huge fail!

You'd think he would have used backup singers to replicate the harmonies that are such a big part of the song. I always thought he was theatrical (in a good way), but in the video he comes off as amateurish when he waves ‘goodbye’ in the middle of the song. I'm sure there were other Queen songs he could have chosen that would have made a much better tribute to Freddie Mercury. (He could have used images of his own exposed ‘bum’ to accompany Fat Bottom Girls, for example.)

Jesus! I just popped into this topic, and after less than 2 pages, can I say if I never ever see or hear the name Oscar Stembridge again it will be a total blessing. 

Sorry about that.  :(  I try not to repeat the same videos over and over, but he's the only artist I follow on Youtube who posts "new content" with any regularity. I should check my notification settings.  :unsure2:

Too young for my taste. 

 

I think this song might be a little older than I am. :music:

You know, back when the first complaint about Oscar popped up, Page restrained himself from linking to Oscar's version of The Joker

I have admit that Oscar did a better job than Robbie on Bohemian Rhapsody, but it's clear he's still a young child who needs to work on his timing and practice his piano more. I'm sure part of it is that his fingers and hands struggle with adult-sized instruments and that he'll grow into a better musician.

Spoiler

I'm not as big a fan of Oscar Stembridge as Page Scrawler is.

I just wish they had been able to use a mixing board to adjust the volume of the trumpets in a few places to emphasize the vocals more.

 

Declan's voice gets "buried" under the instruments and back-up singers towards the end...but it still shows the power of his voice.  :)

I was listening to different Mariachi version of Bohemian Rhapsody (with male voices) and I was amused to notice the same sorts of Spanish-accent pronunciations as I hear from my Mexican, Salvadoran, and Guatamalan neighbors. When I worked in department stores, I'd get used to hearing Chinese-influenced and Tagalog-influenced English too. I remember one woman from China who would page people to the ‘Men Department’ or the ‘Shoes Department’ (there were several separate women's departments in that store).

      Hey I'm curious, does anyone use some ambiance when writing like music or a specific you-tuber? I personally, quite often have music that fits the mood of what I'm writing, or listen to Fredrik Knudsen.

      What are songs that you find inherently sexy or erotic? I don't mean songs about sex (though they can be), it can be a riff that makes you feel a certain way, a voice, anything really. 
       
      Like this one: 
       
       
      There's just something about it. Admittedly, it's probably about sex, but I found it sexy long before I listened properly to the lyrics. I love the riffs, and it features Maynard from Tool, whose voice is amazingly alluring to me. 
       
      So! Show me yours!
       
      EDIT: I guess maybe this is a little too personal for most people to comment on...

      Better late than never might be the motto hanging over the entrance ...  Oh well ... As the story continues to progress, maybe there'll be things you'd like to chat about, complain, moan. Whatever. 
       
      First though, I've an announcement about Tony and Geoff, and the next few months. As a serial which is written as it's being posted, T&G needs discipline as well as enjoyment on my part. Over the past couple of episodes, that discipline has felt more like a constraint, something that holds me back from writing other things. So the next chapter, 17, about the meal, will be the last for a short while. It will finish Part 1 of Soul Music. I love the characters and I have plenty left to do with them, but I need a break. Both to do other things, and to recharge that part of my creative battery. I expect Geoff to be having that conversation with his mother sometime in July, probably as the opening chapter of Part 2. Sorry to keep you hanging on that one, but the meal seemed the only point at which I could call a temporary halt. @Parker Owens as my editor, and the person with the most invested in the story after me, has agreed with my decision. 
       
      So, there it is. It will allow me to write more for GA - about Eric, amongst others, and another longish entry for the next anthology. In the meantime, there is one more chapter to write (and it may well turn out to be long one  ). I hope you've enjoyed it so far and that you'll rejoin me when I announce the start of Part 2 in this thread.

      I'm not sure if you ever tripped over Pete Hollens before... but this guy (and his wife) have some amazing talent.  The editing on these things just boggle my mind...

      We all know most things are geared towards the heterosexual lifestyle. Sometimes songs, movies, etc. can’t  fully express our feelings.  Not to take away from their own importance. Here’s a Valentines playlist for the LGBTQ in your life. Feel free to add your own.  https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/pride/8099653/queer-love-songso
