Music for the soul
« on: June 22, 2016, 06:41:26 PM »
 

So you guys occasionally discuss music that moves you in some way or has some particular value for you.  Your humble poster was in a funk recently, suffering from a bout of melancholia or something, and came across this tune.

The singer may be familiar to some of you, perhaps most, has a beautiful tenor voice, and does a stirring job on the recording of this song.  As I proceed well into the "mystery" of middle-aged negro male status, songs like this begin to have special meaning for me.

Like to hear you guys thoughts.

[Poster's note: although I was aware of this song prior to coming across the recording set forth at the top^^^^^, I was NOT aware that it is also apparently used in a certain current action film.  :lol:]

 :no:.........realizing that the overwhelming majority of negroes on this board and elsewhere are apparently "culturally limited" to appreciating ANY kind of music beyond jazz, r&b, gospel and hip hop/rap, thought I would send this one back up to the top to allow those of you with more "sophisticated" musical palettes to respond.

I love a great performance and arrangement regardless of genre.

This one is OK. His vocal performance is better than the accompaniment which SOUNDS orchestral, but most likely is electronic.

7 out of 10 for the vocals, 4 out of 10 for instrumentation. Overall 5 out of 10.  ;)

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
