Music video: Chris Hadfield singing with the Barenaked Ladies

I’m sure you know who Chris Hadfield is – the famous Canadian astronaut, and maybe you even know of the Canadian singing group The Barenaked Ladies – a male rock group so named to attract attention.

Below is a video of them all singing together while Chris Hadfield was still in Space. They also have a choir as backup. I hope you enjoy this.

If you were a member of a singing group what name would you choose to attract attention?

Thanks for reading – and listening.  And Creative Musings!  🙂

Video: Live and Let Die by 2Cellos & Lang Lang

Today I don’t have anything “writerly” to share with you, but I do have a creative musical video for you to watch. Does that count? 🙂 

You may remember I enjoy 2Cellos. This video is of 2Cellos and Lang Lang performing Live and Let Die. Amazing!  I hope you enjoy it.

 

Have you ever had the delight of attending a concert of 2Cellos or Lang Lang?

Wynken, Blynken & Nod (official video)

It’s already the first day of the second week of the new year. It seems 2017 is going to be another quickly passing year, so we must make it count.

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m participating in Storystorm this month, striving to have 30 ideas for stories. So far I think I have eight.

After each Storystorm post we are to leave one comment. Comments today include one with a video added. I enjoyed it and thought you might, too. Remember the poem Wynken, Blynken & Nod written by Eugene Field and published in 1889?

Here are the words to the poem:

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe —
Sailed on a river of crystal light,
Into a sea of dew.
“Where are you going, and what do you wish?”
The old moon asked the three.
“We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beautiful sea;
Nets of silver and gold have we!”
Said Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

The old moon laughed and sang a song,
As they rocked in the wooden shoe,
And the wind that sped them all night long
Ruffled the waves of dew.
The little stars were the herring fish
That lived in that beautiful sea —
“Now cast your nets wherever you wish —
Never afraid are we”;
So cried the stars to the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

All night long their nets they threw
To the stars in the twinkling foam —
Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,
Bringing the fishermen home;
‘Twas all so pretty a sail
 it seemed
As if it could not be,
And some folks thought ’twas a dream they’d dreamed
Of sailing that beautiful sea —
But I shall name you the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head,
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies
Is a wee one’s trundle-bed.
So shut your eyes while mother sings
Of wonderful sights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things
As you rock in the misty sea,
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

Now for the video:

Have you ever written ballads, songs or choruses? If your writing is inspired by music, which songs or instrumentals?

My post will be brief this time.  I found some wonderful music … actually, it is worship music, but even if you are not a Christian you may really enjoy this.

Hillsong United performs an acoustic version of “Oceans” from the album “ZION”.

Blessings on your day!
