Day 13 - One of your favourite 70's songs:

(yes, that's the full ballet. No, I don't expect anyone will watch it.)

Continuing on the theme of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and ballet we have Swan Lake. (Hey, it never specified a century and Swan Lake had it's premier in '77's... 1877!)

Day 12 - A song from your pre-teen years:

Tchaikovsky - Nutcracker: March

My mother, rest her soul, loved the ballet. My brothers and I would get dragged out to see The Nutcracker every Christmas. We'd get new suits, new shoes, haircuts. It was a very formal affair. I, admittedly, fell in love with the music and it's entire possibly my mother and Tchaikovsky are the root of my love of classical.

I still try and catch at least one performance of The Nutcracker every year.

That went really well, didn't it? Apparently I don't come on line often enough to do a daily posting but I am enjoying sharing some of the music I love (even if no-one else does!) so I'm just goingto go ahead with Days 3 to 9 in this post:

Day 3 - A song that reminds you of summer )

Day 4 - A song that reminds you of someone you'd rather forget about: )

Day 5 - A song that needs to be played LOUD )

Day 6 - A song that makes you want to dance )

Day 7 - A song to drive to )

Day 8 - A song about drugs or alcohol )

Day 9 - A song that makes you happy )

About Me

I'm Jack, a recent retiree looking for a new hobby. Apparently 'annoying my girlfriend' isn't the best use of my days. Her opinion, not mine

I'm a life-long science-fiction and superheroes fan, and a voracious reader. I enjoy movies, fishing, astronomy, and gardening.

I live in Wales with my wife, our girlfriend and an ever growing collection of four-legged friends.
