    Morgana King, a boldly original jazz singer with a four-octave voice and dramatic stage presence who was perhaps better known for portraying Marlon Brando’s wife in the first two Godfather movies, died March 22 in Palm Springs, Calif. She was 87. Her death, which had not previously been reported, was confirmed by the Riverside County coroner’s office. A representative from the office said the cause was non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
  • Far Greater Than These (God's Perfect Love) - Music Video

    Far Greater Than These (Lyrics) (Matt. 19:27-30, 1 Cor. 2:9, 1 John 3:1-3, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Rev. 21; 22:1-5) If I possessed, all riches and lands And jewels that exceed all the grains of the sand But far greater than these, vaster then earth's vanities Is my Father's wondrous love for me As I ponder the glorious thought Of this world's wonders my Savior has wrought But far greater than these, vaster than the galaxies Is my Father's wondrous love for me Eyes have no seen, nor the glories been told His majestic ways, His children shall behold But far...
  • Some Velvet Morning - Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood

    Here is pop nugget from the past that only more "seasoned" Freepers will remember. Released in 1967, it was a Top 30 hit in America and had an otherworldly vibe to it. Very trippy and psychedelic. I can almost picture Frank asking his daughter what the hell she and Lee were smoking to come up with this one. I was just a small boy when this was popular but I remember hearing it on the radio. The accompanying video I linked here has a post apocalyptic "Planet of the Apes" feel to it. I did not discover the video until...

    For many years I listened to a compilation CD of Bach's Adagios and Largos (Slow Pieces), and I LOVED this 8 minute meditation from St. John's Passion. I don't speak German, and didn't have a clue what it was about, but I love the piece. This is a very nice rendition of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arrA7DBmeNI

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa State Fair is less than a week away and some areas are still under construction including the Grandstand. The renovated Grandstand will seat 14,500 people compared to the original 10,500. “I say we have four things, ease of getting in. You’re going to get in easier. You don’t have to have tickets for the food and beverage this year, so the lines should be shorter for that. We have new concessions and new restrooms and a bigger stage,” Iowa State Fair Manager and CEO Gary Slater said. The bigger stage and additional seats go...

    There used to be a time, not so long ago, when the pop songs pouring out of the radio was mostly happy, upbeat music. Listening to Top 40 radio in the 1970s was mostly a pleasure when I was a boy growing up. On hot summer nights, we'd bring our battery powered transistor radios out on the front porch and listen to hours of the current pop songs. In those days, pop songs were in heavy rotation for around 6-10 weeks, then they'd fade away, eventually replaced by a new batch of songs. There were many 1970s "pop hits" that...

    NATZ, Italy — By the time Frei.Wild took the stage at Alpen Flair, a three-day music festival in northern Italy, the sun had disappeared behind the forested peaks of the surrounding Alps. Most of the 20,000 audience members had traveled over 100 miles from Germany to see the band. The crowd was overwhelmingly white and largely male, and many fans shouted along as the band launched into one of its most controversial songs, “Südtirol.” The song celebrates Frei.Wild’s home region of South Tyrol, where the festival was taking place, a largely German-speaking enclave that was passed to Italy from Austria-Hungary...

    Country music star Eric Church is making his feelings about the NRA very clear—and they aren’t pleasant. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the signer cast blame on the NRA for Congress’ lack of action after the Las Vegas massacre, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history that left 58 people dead and more than 800 injured. “I blame the lobbyists,” Church told the magazine. "And the biggest in the gun world is the NRA.” Church was a headliner at the Route 91 Harvest Festival where the shooting took place, performing just two nights earlier. His fans were...

    There used to be many songs in popular music that featured the word Bell. Which songs do YOU recall with that word in the title? For most people, the sound of a bell signified the moment something of great significance is happening. Two such examples include A. The Bells, as performed by Laura Nyro and Patti Labelle & the Bluebelles. from 1971. The song "The Bells" was written by Marvin Gaye and Iris Gordy, for the group The Originals. Laura and Patti Labelle do a fantastic take on it in the album called "It's Gonna Take A Miracle". When I...

    Maybe it’s because it was the third of three weddings since May; maybe it’s just because we’re getting old. The night was a whirl of deafening music, wild little children chasing laser lights on the dance floor like a herd of cats while young adults and near-adults danced to the oldies (it’s amazing how many really old songs, recycled by new artists, make their way into the modern wedding repertoire) well into the wee hours.Of course it was lovely, all weddings are: the bride was radiantly gorgeous, the parents understandably misty-eyed (she is their first, he is their last) and...
  • Weezer's biggest hit in a very long time is a cover of Toto's 'Africa'

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 2018 | Allison Stewart
    It started on Twitter, as these things often do. A then-14-year-old Weezer fan named Mary (@weezerafrica) began a public campaign to persuade the alt-rock band to cover the 1982 Toto hit “Africa.” For months, she kept at it, tweeting at the band’s members: When would they bless the rains down in Africa? Weezer eventually complied, and were shocked when their cover hit No. 1 on iTunes. One of the internet’s few universally beloved comfort food songs, “Africa” is the gift that keeps giving: Weezer hasn’t had a hit this big in almost a decade. The band is currently in the...
  • Differences and Universals in Music Across Cultures; An Evaluation Guide for Missionaries

    Christian Post ^ | 07/17/2018 | Scott Aniol
    A missionary cannot properly evaluate the differences among cultural expressions until he has understood their universals.At the root of the most thoughtful defenses of contemporary worship today is an appeal based on a missions philosophy that stresses indigenous ministry. If, as the International Missionary Council asserted as far back 1938, an indigenous church is one that "spontaneously uses forms of thought and modes of action natural and familiar in its own environment," then it makes sense that a church use those music forms that are most common in its culture. A pastor or a missionary should not expect a church...
