Ever since this dagnabbit commercial played at the superbowl I have been searching the web to find the name of this classical aria - like many other websleuths;_
It appears that one person has posted the same response, but I don't believe it is from Carmen's March of the Troubadours. Anyone have a clue????
(Excerpt) Read more at youtube.com ...
Did you check the comments beneath the vid?
Flower Duet from Lacme by Léo Delibes
This page appears to have every song.
The flower duet.
There was one from Carmen but it was not the part you normally hear. But another section.
I have enjoyed listening to various parts on u tube. Good memories of being in a production in college
Just search for Carmen opera
Missed that one LOL!!!! And it clearly read: viens mallika- les liens en fleurs
Very surprising - I was thinking it had to be a better known composer and title.
Thanks for being my ears and eyes - sod.
Delibes: Lakmé, Act I “Viens, Mallika, les liens en fleurs”
Thank y’all so much - I am now informed and liberated.
Not on the playlist of many gangsta rappers.
We had mandatory classical music in school - and I had the same affection for it as Latin. (Same teacher).
I don’t regret my Elvis intoxication - so there!!!!!
However, with age comes a deeper appreciation of opera, orchestra and choral music.
Pop culture is such a misnomer.
Now I get your screen name;)
“yo yo YO WHO CARMEN ?
where he hang?
I came of age in the 60's and listened to Top 40.Later,I started listening to albums of the great (and less famous) acts of the 60's...everything from Easy Listening to Hendrix and lots of stuff in between.However,I've been slowly developing an appreciation for certain classical/opera pieces.Cecilia Bartoli,for example.So now my music collection includes Hendrix,early Dylan *and* Rossini Heroines (Cecilia).
Definitely the Flower Duet... I once had it as my ring tone...freaked people out.
But, you missed the REALLY interesting part of that commercial. They use lasers to Custom map your car and build a floor mat JUST for YOU!
I know what it is .... It is the song that was played over the PA in the Shawshank Redemption
Funny you should mention Elvis. Just today my hubby found some old stamps he had collected about 100 yrs ago. He has some 195? Elvis stamps. What do you reckon those are worth? About face value?
