Carmina Burana - O Fortuna ( a lament for canned fish )
« on: June 06, 2012, 06:52:36 PM »

When i was much younger and had a very good soprano range, I sang in a classical choir. One of my favorite concerts was Carmina Burana. It was in Latin and very moving.

I found this animation on youtube .... I will never be able to listen to it straight again :)

That is hysterically funny!  Thank you so much for sharing.  (starts making room for a piece of lovely caaaaaaaaake.))
Never refuse to do a kindness unless the act would work great injury to yourself, and never refuse to take a drink -- under any circumstances.

O Fortunata is my cell phone ring tone.

In college the choir loved doing this sort of thing.  O Fortuna was a classic.  They also massacred a song from The Pirates of Penzance.

'A pair of socks, a pair of socks
A very dirty pair of socks...'

Then there was the Star Wars theme.

'Star Wars! The theme from Star Wars
Sounds just like 'Born Free' played upside down...'

Classical Mondegreens! I love it!

My dad taught me some lyrics to a song we used to sing in choir, "Silver Threads Among the Gold:"

Darling I am growing mold
Silver threads among the mold
Slime upon my brow today
The body you can cart away.

Then there's the lyrics DH's friend taught me for "Scotland the Brave..."

Let's roll. (And you can't scare me; I've had teenagers.)

We used to like this commercial - and my sis said in her music appreciation class they would sing, to the same tune,
