My memory is quite foggy, but yesterday I was talking with my coworkers and I remembered I danced to Mano Negra and Jello Biafra in a free gig in Rio more than 30 years ago. It was an event related tp the ECO92 summit.

Of course they didn’t have the slighest idea of what I was talking about.

A chorus of 10,000, which is probably the only sane way to be able to sing over the orchestra in “Ode to Joy”!

I wouldn’t call myself a huge fan of Pantera, but this is the point at which I remove their music from my repertoire. (I bought a few used CDs at a discount retailer).

Their stuff is now deleted from my iTunes library.

No. Sorry I take Beethoven’s 9th a little close to heart. He was nearly 100% deaf when he wrote what I consider the best piece of music ever written. And if you’re Gen-X like me, the definitive version is “Ode to Freedom” performed in Berlin in 1989:

[edit] I missed the joke. Apologies.

I will never turn down an opportunity to listen to the entire symphony, but I would suggest as a general rule to not talk down to people you don’t know on the internet. I am a Boomer, and have performed the 9th to paying audiences. There is no definitive version. Enjoy all of them.

Can I like that another time? I think it is physically impossible to watch Elis Regina singing there without grinning ear to ear.

Agreed. :smile: I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve played it since stumbling across it. Glad that you’re enjoying it, too! I might have to move Brazilian Portuguese up higher on my language learning list after this. :wink:

If you enjoy Diamanda Galas, you’ll probably like Lingua Ignota…
