How about a thread of music "covers", which is the term for a well known song performed by someone who was not the person who originally made the song popular. There are some great covers on You Tube. Here is one I found today [jrEmbed module="jrYouTube" youtube_id="ZySOgMzOY0Q"] for Buzz  (at least he can hear it) http://dugan49.webs.com/Randy%20Coleman%20-%20Bohemian%20Rhapsody.mp3

Just for the hell of it...disabled musicians.


By:  @randy, 3 months ago

Latest By:  @randy, 3 months ago

Many musicians and performers are disabled. Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, etc. Blindness seems to be the most prominent. Still the drummer for Def Leppard (Rick Allen) lost an arm and still continues to play for the band to this day. Pretty good for a drummer. Here is one of my favorites. Most blind musicians are piano players, but the late Jeff Healey managed to become a great and greatly under appreciated guitar player as a blind musician. He played rock and roll and blues like few...

Or could the deciding factor for your preference be which one you tasted first? Does it really matter?  Let's apply that to the...

Latest By:  @johnrussell, 3 months ago

The musical film La La Land has been nominated for 14 Academy Awards. The consensus seems to be that the film will win many, if not all, of the categories in which it is nominated. This is despite the apparent truth that the two main characters are played by actors who are not particularly good singers or dancers. Bill Maher pointedly shouted at the camera on one of his "New Rules" segments "Ryan Gosling cannot fucking sing !" --------------------------------------------- RELATED...
