ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On September 11th, 2020

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. Gosh, the football season kicks off tomorrow (up the Arse). It seems like only a few weeks since the last one ended. Doesn’t time fly? Have a good weekend whatever you’re up to.

A change of pace this week. I stumbled across this performance of John Williams’ mesmerising composition a while ago. How do you compose something as moving as this? That I wonder how is probably the reason why I’m not a composer.

The blurb caught my eye: “Davida Scheffers has lived her dream in winning a contest and the opportunity to play with the Dutch Orchestra. Davida suffers from an extremely painful neuromuscular condition that derailed her career, and she thought she would never get to play in a professional orchestra again… The young blond lady is her daughter and was 18 years old that day.”

As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

  1. Here you go Pete, beautiful. And the tune’s not bad either.

  2. Something slightly different. Three great singers, and a nice song.

    Neither is the Steinway. Look and listen to it. That’s ancient tech, just stretched strings really, raised to perfection. Humans can do such great things,

    I’m just wondering which Premier League manager will get the sack first – Mourhino (Sperz), Solsjaer (Newton Heath) or Lampard (Chelski). I’ll be amazed if those three are all still there by Christmas. Of course the favourite would usually be the Watford manager (average three managers per season) but they were relegated to the Championship – maybe there is a god? Anyway they will probably sack him within three months at most. Old habits.

    But my money would have to be on Hodson at Crystal Palace. I’m amazed he’s still in post. You are on borrowed time Roy and you know it. One month probation, no more.

    That I can’t stand the sight of blood is probably the reason I’m not a brain surgeon.

    Is there no end to Dr Brian Cox’s talents.

    I saw him live in Biarritz four years ago and it was simply breathtaking. Seventy five years old and he was moving like a teenager. A legend whose influence was astronomical.
