Music Festival

By Jackie Roe, TW Social Director

Happy Friday, TWibe! It's a good thing you stopped by this week because we're doing something extra special in this week's Deuce Club (as previewed by Pete in today's YC). Read on!

The summer months are marked by outdoor activities - the most enjoyable of which are concerts and music festivals (in my opinion, anyway). Chicago may as well be the mecca for these types of events. The Ravinia Festival in Highland Park is the oldest music festival in the States and one of the most world-class, and just last night, Billy Joel and Elton John performed at Wrigley Field. See? It's not just the pizza that keeps me here.

But I digress.

It's in this spirit that Pete and I have decided to host our very first ... TW Music Festival!

Here's how this will work. We'd like for everyone to share their favorite music video on YouTube.

Some guidelines:

1) You can only pick one video! That'll make this activity both fun and a little bit of a challenge. (It's inevitable that as the night progresses, y'all will think of other clips you'd like to share, and that's fine. But let's try to keep it to one per person, to start off.)

2) You can choose an actual music video or a live/studio performance. Post both the link as well as a brief description of the clip.

3) Please use TinyURL so our pages don't become a mess!

Everyone good?

Let's begin with Pete's favorite, then mine. We both went the live performance route, which fits in well with the summer music festival theme (though mine takes place in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge - not quite an outdoor atmosphere, huh).

Here's Pete's:

Gotta love the bayou, and there are a million different versions of this song, but I love Emmylou's best!

http://tinyurl.com/klj53z

And mine:

Not my favorite band or favorite song ... but one heckuva performance. The best part(s)? Lead singer Ryan Tedder hitting those high notes better than any soprano ever could AND reading the lyrics off of his phone!

http://tinyurl.com/mwcrrh

Now you. Remember those guidelines from earlier, and get ready to partake in some music madness!

[Programming note: In the coming weeks, I plan on hosting a few more "favorite YouTube videos" events. Different categories but same level of fun. Make sure to bookmark those videos you can't get enough of, so you're prepared!]

Thanks, Emma, BlueDog and Mr X ...

Posted by joe_can_bike 07/17/2009 at 07:14 PM

Wow, Rosangel, you just floored me with your pick. I read this board a lot and you always post the exact opposite of whatever I'm thinking, but this time you picked one of my favorite songs (Hallelujah). Music will bring an end to the Fedal Wars :-)

An amazing Nina Simone song that I had never heard until someone sent me this link. (Warning: not a festive, Friday song...more of a somber Sunday afternoon.)

How is it possible to not like Radiohead??? Like how? OK Computer is so unbelievably epic! WIN!

Posted by tennisesq. 07/17/2009 at 07:15 PM

Tfactor,
That Suzanne Vega song is a classic. Great pick.

Lleytsie,
Lol at you and your Britney fixation. My personal favorite is "Sometimes." Great video.

Posted by Lleytsie (Sabbath) 07/17/2009 at 07:16 PM

yeah, radiohead ROCKS !

i like sinnerman - by Nina Simone

"but this time you picked one of my favorite songs (Hallelujah). Music will bring an end to the Fedal Wars :-)"

At the risk of being a NPesque contrarian, I might start a Hallelujah war.

P.S. Cohen for life!

Lleytsie, sinnerman is an amazing song!

Grant yes I am with you

Leonard is a pure Legend,you know i saw him again this year when he came to Sydney when he sang that song the whole audience stood up and cheered him

I like Jeffs version

Noone does it like Leonard though.

yeah - it fits perf for thomas crown affair theme, NO?

Posted by Bismarck 07/17/2009 at 07:20 PM

awesomeness, gaul. that muppets vid was just the right thing after a long long long day.
also, i get "This video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions" for about half of the stuff currently linked to here. bummer.

out of extreme tiredness and already one gazillion hours in front of the notebook today, i won´t do a time-eating ´tube search, but just fall back on a vid+song i generally like and which i just recently revisited due to a similar project elswhere, kinda comparable to your youtube party here, Jackie. so i´ll just recycle that choice:

Or search "Freedom 90"

hi bissy .... waves waves towards Europe

which way is Europe - from Michigan ?

Posted by Grant 07/17/2009 at 07:22 PM

Around the start of the year there was a debate in these parts about what was the greatest American band. I should've asked if a group with just one american would qualify, because if so, game over:

That song will forever be engraved in my mind with memories of home.

As a child I wanted to take that midnight train to Georgia (even if I spoke Spanish and didn't understand what the song was about) ;-)


Posted by SilentP 07/17/2009 at 07:24 PM

Tfactor - haven't seen that Kanye video before and it's really good. Thanks for picking that.

There also seems to be a fair amound of rock and indie being chosen. Is there any more pop, dance or rnb to come?

Posted by Emma (insertwittymantrahere) 07/17/2009 at 07:26 PM

Any other Kate Bush fans? I flove her.

Posted by NP 07/17/2009 at 07:28 PM

Folks, count me in the Robert Christgau camp re Radiohead. I'm not a fan of his by any means, but the man's got a taste.

Emma, thx... I think.

Yeah i can sure move to that one

FLOVED the London run .... randy played amazing though, if not - he wud have played the semis

Posted by Mr. X 07/17/2009 at 07:28 PM

Emma,
Loved your picks. That requiem song is kind of telling: "something bad is gonna happen, it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen"
On the spirit of that one, how about this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4mq-6tauzM
The movie and the choice of images match very well.

That song from The Dubliners must have kind of a homecoming feeling. We have a similar one here in my region of Spain, that gives me goosebumps every single time:

One last one just because now and again I miss Freddy Mercury:

Gee I can feel a Hot Choclate coming on lol!

Love that Belgin Chocolate place you told me to go to at the Quay.

Posted by NP 07/17/2009 at 07:32 PM

Orff was clearly a 2nd-rater who produced a single massive hit in Carmina Burana. It's schlock, but very exciting schlock it is.

This was meant for SilentP ;-)

Witney me likey the Foo Fighters

great choice,though I wished he would do his spitting away from the audience lol!

Posted by Ruth 07/17/2009 at 07:35 PM

Jackie: Just wanted to say that I'm enjoying this DC immensely. Now, I have to go finish my packing, but I'll leave you with a song that always brings me to my feet, partly because it's always played at the end of Philadelphia Freedom WTT matches. :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uVZq0Xr6dc

We may be near the bottom of our league rankings, but we're the only team with a song written and sung just for us by Elton John!

I'll be back.

Posted by Bismarck 07/17/2009 at 07:36 PM

croc hunting it is fo sho, Lleytsie. and good on you for getting a job back at home in fab straya.

loved the movie requiem for a dream, Emma. and its music.

Posted by beth 07/17/2009 at 07:37 PM

HI, guys
well - I am trying to think of something to add
AM posted my favorite song of all time
and Rafadoc posted my favorite clever video

so I don't know quite what to post
I am loving the suggestions
wish I had some footage of my favorite guitarist - that would be my son - but I don't
so I will have to figure out what to put up here
He keeps promising me he is going on youtube - he and his buddies ( who - sorry girls - hate Coldplay ) wrote some new lyrics to Viva La Vida in parody and are working on a performance - if and when that comes to pass - I will post it
but for right now I cannot think of anything serious that I like

and no - even though I like to dance to it - I will not post Britney or Michael Jackson
I have a thought - gonna go see if I can find it
BRB

ps - I see the Wolverine in the photo - and my god - the girl in the white - just off center looks exactly like Jake's ex girlfriend - I always liked that girl - I miss seeing her around here - wonder if that is her?

On the basis is of as good as any

Posted by NP 07/17/2009 at 07:37 PM

"Freedom 90" is one case where style not only is substance, but actually trumps it. Sleekly done.

Posted by gauloises (unrepentant FooP) 07/17/2009 at 07:38 PM

NP - I adore Kate Bush. What song did you choose? The link doesn't work for me.

Posted by Aussiemarg Madame President finally comes out of rehab and rejoices in Vamos Forever 07/17/2009 at 07:39 PM

Gee all my other songs are on my main computer back home

I love the Rolling Stones,I have seen them live too

Start Me up,Jumpin Jack Flash,Give me Shelter,brown Sugar to name a few.

Posted by NP 07/17/2009 at 07:40 PM

gauloises, that's odd, 'cause that's one of the official ones. I chose "This Woman's Work." Kate will never be a Joni, but she came close with that song.

Posted by Whitney 07/17/2009 at 07:40 PM

Lol Aussiemarg - yeah me too.. but Dave's the man. haha On youtube is also videos of a DVD they did when they were doing acoustic shows - so awesome. They slow down some of the favorites and Dave actually showcases his voice, which doesn't happen during the rock shows where he just screams a lot.

Posted by Rosangel 07/17/2009 at 07:41 PM

OK - it doesn't matter that the link doesn't work. I know the "Freedom" video:) I think George in those days was still very much in the closet as far as the public was concerned, even though quite a few of us had figured out the real story...

Posted by gauloises (unrepentant FooP) 07/17/2009 at 07:41 PM

ptenisnet - you've seen the lego version, right?

Posted by Mr. X 07/17/2009 at 07:41 PM

"I mean, George Michael has a point, why not just hire the hottest supermodels you can find and be done with it?"
He sure does have a point, Dunlop. Did that video really last more than 6 minutes? Somehow, it seemed much less, even though i just didnt take my eyes of the screen:)

Posted by NP 07/17/2009 at 07:42 PM

BTW the MV for "This Woman's Work" isn't quite up to par with the music. Just focus on the song.

Posted by Dunlop Maxply 07/17/2009 at 07:43 PM

Rosia,

The first one was off. I re-posted with the correct link about ten posts later.

Posted by Emma (insertwittymantrahere) 07/17/2009 at 07:43 PM

Mr. X, I'm glad you enjoyed them. That Victor Manuel song you posted is very beautiful, as are the photos of Asturias in the vid. Very nice.

Bismarck, I loved the movie as well.

NP, I can't see your Kate Bush vid due to copyright restrictions, which one is it?

Posted by ptenisnet 07/17/2009 at 07:44 PM

jejejeje
yep, i saw that when i looked for this one.


Also this one.
I couldn't find a music video though

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GugsCdLHm-Q&feature=related

Posted by Rosangel 07/17/2009 at 07:44 PM

BTW, a long time ago I posted on TW that George Michael's biggest tennis connection was that he had dated Brooke Shields (she was even quoted in a British tabloid saying that he was "all man" (which of course he is, but not in the way that she meant it). He gave an interview sometime later (I think after he was "out") in which he said that no real "action" ever took place, because Brooke's mother had surrounded her bed with traffic cones and a "keep out!" sign.

Posted by Aussiemarg Madame President finally comes out of rehab and rejoices in Vamos Forever 07/17/2009 at 07:46 PM

Witney I love that song,yes acoustic version is great too.

Posted by Tfactor 07/17/2009 at 07:46 PM

Great choices all around.
Mr X,
I enjoyed your pick. I've been away from home for so long that the only song in Spanish that came to mine is 'Eres Tu' by 'Las Mocedades' (you're probably too young to remember them) ;-)
NP
Talk about great memories. 'They gonna talk' could have written about me and a certain special someone ;-)

Posted by NP 07/17/2009 at 07:47 PM

Emma, "This Woman's Work." Guess we'll have to do without the MV:

Posted by beth 07/17/2009 at 07:47 PM

Brooke certainly dated an interesting assortment before she married Andre - and then moved on to her present husband

but I digress - I was trying to find the Cowbell video from SNL - with Will Ferrell
just because it always makes me laugh and it is about a live music performance

but I could to with some Stones - let me see what I can find

Posted by Annie (Vamos Heavenly Creature) 07/17/2009 at 07:48 PM

I've also got a live version of John Belushi doing Joe Cocker.

now i have to go get caught up on all these vids.

Posted by Emma (insertwittymantrahere) 07/17/2009 at 07:48 PM

Well, that does it for me folks. I'm knackered.
Thanks for all your choices, I really enjoyed them.
Again thanks to Pedro and Jax for this great DC.
Night everyone! :)

Posted by NP 07/17/2009 at 07:49 PM

Tfactor, props to ya. BTW "Luka" is one of my Suzanne faves, 2, though I wouldn't call it one of her best.

Posted by Aussiemarg Madame President finally comes out of rehab and rejoices in Vamos Forever 07/17/2009 at 07:50 PM

I also love George Michael when he did some duets with Aretha Franklin as well.

"I Knew You Were Waiting For Me" comes to mind.

Posted by Lleytsie 07/17/2009 at 07:50 PM

beth - so you did see the wolverine in the foto ? am so curious on where this was - and whoo took it

surprising isnt it

so what does jake play - blues, rock ? metal

marg - but yeah, am going to Melb this time around - but glad the hot choc place works well ... am glad you like it

joe_can_bike, Maxwell's cover was quite good. His almost natural falsetto certainly didn't hurt. But the original is better.

Later, Emma.

Posted by Mr. X 07/17/2009 at 07:52 PM

Tfactor,
Actually, my parents do love that song. But dont you remember this one? It has been voted "Best Spanish song" time after time. I think it's very good, although i will always prefer "La Flaca" to anything else:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_pGuEaRctY
The lyrics are on the right side, by the way.

Posted by Aussiemarg Madame President finally comes out of rehab and rejoices in Vamos Forever 07/17/2009 at 07:53 PM

Beth Please find some Rolling Stones,I just love them

As i said I am up the coast all my music is on my main computer at home

I thought you would like my choice

Stairway To Heaven,one of the best written and sung songs ever.

Robert Plant what can I say.

Posted by Lynne (Rafalite) 07/17/2009 at 07:54 PM

I've been looking for "Rainy night in Georgia" by Randy Crawford and can't seem to find it anywhere. Always liked that song because I was once really stuck there once on such a night.

Posted by beth 07/17/2009 at 07:54 PM

Lletysie - yep I see the Wolverine
As Jackie put this up - I would bet it was taken in the Chicago area

Jake is a rock guitarist - loves classic rock - but also some of the new stuff
although he bemoans the fact that today's music is synthetic and not instrument based
He is not a big fan of much that is new out there today
and he particularly hates Coldplay -

He also plays the drums and bass -and a little bit of keyboard - but mostly he is a guitarist -
lead guitar - not rhythm

Posted by Lleytsie 07/17/2009 at 07:55 PM

how come none of old metal ....

metallica, sabbath, van halen, iron maid, nirvana, thin lizzie, pink floyd

why no - Comfortably Numb ?

Posted by TennisTarkheena 07/17/2009 at 07:56 PM

Hey Jackie!! Great topic :) I can't really pick only one because I LOVE music *still searching desperately* Sorry I'm late to the party - I finally got a haircut after three or four months!!!

Posted by beth 07/17/2009 at 07:56 PM

AM - i found Stones - just posted the link - it was to the concert we went to at the Hollywood Bowl
the event was electric - but the Stones have seen better days
maybe I can find a video of that song - when they were a bit younger for you

"cold play (sometimes) sounds like three lil' drunk guys who are whining to their grand mum"
No heat from my side, Lleytsie. What's all that stuff about Roman choirs and Jerusalem bells in "Viva la vida"? I always end up thinking: "WTF are those guys smoking?"
ptenisnet,
Now, that's a true classic.

Yeah , Lleytsie - Jackie and Whitney are gonna get you for the Coldplay hate

I know - I started it -
and one of these days - when Jake does his absolutely hysterical parody I will post it
at least I know you will laugh

He sang us the lyrics on the way to the airport the other day and had us all in laughing so hard the tears ran down our faces

I wish I could remember it - it is biting sarcasm at its best

Lynne I love Randy Crawford

Mr X,
Sure I remember Joan Manuel Serrat!
Thanks for that link, it's been such a long time!
I like 'La Flaca' more just because Mediterraneo is somewhat like a hymn (?) still a great song.

Lira Vega - not sure if you have this song by Feist, she sings with Kings of Convenience. Gorgeous, she comes in at the end:

"I also could've linked to pretty much anything by Feist, flove her..."

I was close to linking 'One Evening' for her hilarious dancing with Buck 65.

LOl Beth - yeah I love Coldplay. But I understand why people don't like them. They've helped me get through many all-nighters in college when I needed something mellow to write papers.

Annie - I LOVE Dave. Really. Love. Taylor Hawkins too.
