I enjoyed watching with my oldest boy some highlights of Ireland's 14-13 rugby victory over Britain. Brings me back to my old rugby days!

I grew up listening to Ukrainian "urban romance" songs of the late 1960-s, like "The Kyiv Waltz" (("Знову цвітуть каштани, хвиля дніпровська б"є..."), "Days and Nights Fly Like Seagulls" ("Лeтять, ніби чайки, і дні, і ночі, в синю даль..."), "My Love" ("Кохана") (this one's lyrics was written by one of my parents' friends, Igor Illich Barakh, who was Jewish but wrote wonderful poetry in Ukrainian - now lives in Israel), and other. The other "stream" was "modernized" Ukrainain folk motifs, like "Red Heady Plant" ("Чeрвона Рута," see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chervona_Ruta_(song)), written by Volodymyr Ivasyuk and performed by Sofia Rotaru. (Ivasyuk died at mysterious circumstances just a few years after the release of "Chervona Ruta," was found hanged on a tree in a forest, and there is a version that he was killed by the KGB, to stop the powerful wave of Ukrainian popular music in the 1970-s.)

After ~1971, when V. Shcherbyts'kyj became the General Secretary of the Ukrainian Communist Party, the radio and TV programs where they played Ukrainian pop songs were dramatically cut or shut down, and the radio started to play, all day long, songs like "I love you, Russia."  ::)

But at that time, yours truly was already under the spell of The Beatles.  ;D

I meant what song would you never tire of hearing? What song do you feel is your moment when it's on the air? ;)

Ahh, ok, thanks :) I don't know if I could narrow it down to one, though the instrumental Orion by Metallica would be a strong candidate for me.

I wrote a song once, and performed it at a college coffeehouse talent show. It was entitled "Experiment No. 117 in A minor."

I meant what song would you never tire of hearing? What song do you feel is your moment when it's on the air? ;)
Ah, now that's a very different question. That would have to be U2's "Sunday Bloody Sunday."

As a bassist I am in awe
Portrait of Tracy-Jaco http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBBG_2tPiOU&feature=related

This song will always remind me of my husband. He can play it perfectly and make it look easy even if he hasn't touched a guitar in months. It reminds me of the three years we dated. And for guitar wank it is really pretty.
Midnight- Joe Satriani http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGNj34GSjs4 (although he is rushing thru the song in this video)

The ORIGINAL get up and move song!
Sir Duke- Stevie Wonder

Again, reminds me of my husband. He proposed to me during this song at a Cure concert
Lovesong- the Cure

Tony Levin Rocks!
In your eyes-Peter Gabriel

Hurt- Johnny Cash
God's gonna cut you down- Johnny Cash
(well, really almost anything by The Man in Black. The kids love him too)

My eldest daughter's song is "My city is gone" by the Pretenders. It almost has her name in it. And that is uncommon with a name like Oheo.

My younger daughter LOVES Gnarls Barkley "Crazy"

Our son loves virtually anything. But he shares his Dad's love of "Crazy train" and "I don't wanna stop" by Ozzy. Big crunchy guitars and boys :laugh: ::)
