Mel Gibson + Goldie Hawn = Bird on A Wire

Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn, pull a stunt of a movie together, twenty years ago, that was.
I thought that The Neville Brothers had a vivacious rendition of Leonard Cohen‘s “Bird On The Wire“: It sure suits both the action and the tempo of the movie. Now that I opened the subject, I’ll Netflix it, just for old times sake: What are you waiting for?

Doru Stanculescu – Fara petale (remastered)

Pachelbel canon in D, at good use here:

Doru Stanculescu – Fara petale (remastered)

Nisipul fin a oftat
Zambeste-n el o urma de pacat
E semn c-aici in zadar
Isi cheama luna lupii la altar

Un strop de vina ingropat
Ciorchini de sare fata i-au spalat
Cristale reci tes in fum
Coperta-n aur un sicriu de scrum

R: Incearca, incearca, piaptana ochii ei
Ma incearcana…

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – German dance No.3 in C-major K 605 ‘Die Schlittenfahrt’

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – German Dance No.3 in C-Major ‘Die Schlittenfahrt’, one of the most beautiful dance composed by Mozart, the “Sleigh Ride” is a tune a treasured all my life. I am happy to share it with you as a reminder that there is joy and happiness, and one can find it in the most uneventful activities, such as a sleigh ride, in the middle of winter: It’s fine and appropriate to be free, anywhere, anytime, and therefore, why not now, just join the ride, and see where it takes you.
