I Lied

Remember how I said I can never choose just 1 song by any of my favorite artists?  Well, I can honestly say, while it’s close, this piece when performed by David Garrett manages to send my emotions into a complete 360, whilst testing the limits of my heartstrings each and every time.

I do hope he returns to the stage soon.  All of his ‘die-hard’ fans seriously miss him.

Finally, instead of a cheesy gif, I’ll just say this …



Trilled and Thrilled

I try not to start an entry with ‘OH MY GOD!!!‘, but I just can’t help myself. WordPress has given me one of the best one word prompts ever!

I think I’ve blogged about this before, but hey. Why not again? I mean, it’s only one of my favorite pieces for the violin. Might I add that it’s one of my top 3 pieces that my favorite violinist performs.

Here is Devil’s Trill Sonata, by Giuseppe Tartini – performed by David Garrett.

And now, here is a full version.

It sends me to the stratosphere EVERY … SINGLE … TIME.

Whether or not you’re a classical music enthusiast, this young man could very well turn you on to it. Did I just say that???

I apologize … for nothing. He does it for me. My husband always says I go through phases, where I get fixated on one artist or another for a couple of years, and then move onto the next.

Not in this case. There is no end in site where David Garrett is concerned. Only one other artist has held my heart for any length of time. It is a true mark of talent.

On A Happier Note

Now that I’ve dried my tears (again), after viewing over an hour’s worth of George Michael videos, I need something which will make me cry happy tears.

I can never say enough about this man.  I used to say ‘there are no words‘.  But now I say ‘there aren’t enough words’.  There just aren’t.  His talent just ‘does it’ for me.  I’ve tried repeatedly to find distractions, to keep my mind off of him.  I’m still trying.  I think I’m making a bit of progress.  I’ve almost stopped crying over the fact that he probably isn’t coming back to my country to perform.

I leave with this – my favorite.
