    Hah! Punk polka - I really need to look that one up!! And here I thought I was good for finding rock bagpipe and jazz French horn! Remember Urkel? I sometimes caught that old sitcom - he had quite a thing for polka, too.

    P.S. Just looked - they are on YouTube!

    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Sitting on the dock of the bay was the 1st single I ever bought, still love it.

    But it's a toss up between that and this ad my favourite track by the Big O.



    But then off course there is this matter piece by the great Sam Cooke. The opening bars never fail to give me goose bumps!

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AwviTE6iZmI

    Ah but then there's Marvin Gaye and Al Green too... Probably my top 4 right there.

    Probably Mr Marley for my 5th fav artist.

    this is currently a favourite. Create Myself by Gary Hesketh - YouTube
    I came across it during one of the sleepless nights( when i trawl youtube /reddit etc) after the 1st cancer op and just before the 2nd. it was part of my process of recognising where I'd gone and part of changing that led to this life change.

    I loath the fight but the fight loves me
    Beautiful blisters the bark of this tree.
    A punch in a kiss my life's on one knee
    Under this skin's hardened harmony.
    I would rather kiss the brink and smile
    Using the best of my worst mile
    Than lie in cold arms forever thinking,
    "Could I have flown through this?"
    I make myself -- I break myself
    Take some time unwrap this life
    And recreate myself.
    I make myself -- I break myself
    Take some time unwrap this life
    I create myself.
    Worn rubber hard ground,
    Damaged skin life bound.
    Dead fingers fumbling found
    The next chance not to come around.
    I waste my own time
    This mind is doing fine
    I won't sell Unmade memories.
    I make myself -- I break myself
    Take some time unwrap this life
    And rewrite myself.
    I make myself -- I break myself
    Take some time unwrap this life
    I create myself.
    There are no clean skins here
    These words were born old.
    I'll cast them out in tears
    Then destroy the mould.
    A shadow's kicking inside,
    I'll starve it before it holds my heart.
    Light up this mechanism, this blood machine.
    I make myself -- I break myself
    Take some time unwrap this life
    And recreate myself.
    I make myself -- I break myself
    Take some time unwrap this life
    I create myself.
    I blew of both wings with one shot
    Stapled my mouth I didn't drop.
    I ripped up my pride I still flew,
    I am me through and through.
    And I'll smile through all this pain because it's all so beautiful

    A Change Gonna Come - Sam Cooke,"Portrait Of A Legend 1951-1964" - YouTube

    "I'm willing and able, so I throw my cards on your table." Looooove it Bob!

    Your Otis tune didn't show up? My favourite Cooke is "Wonderful World". Another Motown favourite is Jackie Wilson's "Your Love"

    I'm waiting for another Leonard Cohen fan to show up so I can start ranting and salivating.

    Well, it's not Friday anymore, but (in no particular order):

    1. Jonas Kaufmann (operatic tenor - does some brilliant Wagner)
    2. Epica (Dutch symphonic metal)
    3. Fritz Wunderlich (long dead, but about the best Lieder singer ever)
    4. Serenity (Austrian symphonic metal)
    5. Mozart operas in general, or the Requiem

    And you could make a decent fair use argument about that quote, Sol! We aren't godless heathens like you Brits with your limited "fair dealing" exception

    Edit: Oh, dear, I look rather German-centric here, don't I? I also love Celtic fiddle!

    Ok buggs
    I'm not going to argue with any new York Germanic british slaying operatic movement.
    Tried that before and it ended badly for me.
