A seasonally apropos selection from The Great American Songbook: "It Might as Well Be Spring."

This version is sung by Astrud Gilberto. You may not recognize the name, but you've likely heard her before. Her delightful, unassuming, refreshingly simple delivery captured the hearts of many Americans in the early 60's with her huge hit, "The Girl from Ipanema."

Nice, Ricky!


"The Great American Songbook is a list of the best, most important and most influential American popular songs of the 20th century, principally from Broadway theatre, musical theatre, and Hollywood musical film, from the 1920s to 1960, including dozens of songs of enduring popularity. The Great American Songbook became (and remains) a vital part of the repertoire of jazz musicians."

Life is funny to me. Just like this site. Interesting week and I feel like posting something...

I'm posting about music on a mountain site. In the same way, I'm always talking about mountains and climbing to non-mountain people.

I'm no expert or certified professional in anything. Trying hard not to gape in public or in the mountains and just having a good time. Bill allows the beer and music threads to survive and I enjoy sharing other things I'm passionate about.

Here's a music twofer. Combined like Grays and Torreys or Redcoud and Sunshine.

My newest audio addiction...these guys are incredible live too. Doesn't look like it's available through the site, but if you have Spotify, give Savage Blue a listen. If the drums don't make your heart beat jump a little, I can't help ya'

Worth viewing full screen on a coffee break. Oh, music ain't bad either. :mrgreen:

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

OMG. I was just subjected to a song called radioactive by Imagine dragons. It is the worst song I've heard in years. The imagine dragons just passed Mumford and Sons in the cheesiest band on the planet with no originality, soul or funk. Gag me with a spoon.


Kenny, please save us today from such bad american white bread musac.
