Concerto 21

On the radio the other day they played Mozart’s Piano Concerto 21 and mentioned that there was a study done somewhere (Sweden? Switzerland? I couldn’t find it) that concluded that women who listened to this specific concerto during lamaze classes and while in labor had a much more pleasant experience giving birth (how they prove this I have no idea).  But interesting concept.

So today, I decided to give it a try.  Not having a baby, but since I was struggling to produce any meaningful work, I thought listening to Concerto 21 might help me birth out some good results.

So far: not working.  But you did get this post.  You can thank Mozart and KUSC for that.

Music Mondays! (I just made that up, I think this is the first time I’ve ever posted anything musical on a Monday).  Either way, this song/video is  someone’s current favorite.

Paul plays it to calm her down.   (You can tell she was angry before, because when she gets upset she pulls her hair/grabs her ears.  She still has one hand on her head gripping her hair, which means she’s still deciding whether or not she’s pissed.)

It is also a song that will be stuck in your head the rest of the day.  You’re welcome.

A The Roots / Carly Rae Jepsen jam session with preschool instruments.  What more do you need on a Monday.  The rainbow xylophone is clutch.

Per one of the comments, Questlove (bottom left) tries to play the recorder upsidedown around 2:32.  Hilarious.

OK, this song’s been out for 8 months…hence the 81 million views on the video…so obviously I’m a little late on the uptake.  The guy is Belgian/Australian and he’s old news down under, but I just found him and the whole album is great and I can’t stop listening to it.

Thanks to Paul for introducing me to him.

Update: I just came across this.  Love.  PS22 also covers Adele, Passion Pit, Gym Class Heroes…pretty much everything.  Double love.

New week, new song obsession.

Last week it was Robyn (I know, she’s weird). This week it’s Lana Del Rey. There’s a good chance you’ve already seen this video, it has almost 7 million views on YouTube, but I’m just discovering her and I am hooked.

I’m not sure what’s happening with her upper lip in the video, but her voice…  Amazing. I was poking around and found a few of her other songs (here and here and here) and I can kind of listen to them all day long.   That last song might be my favorite.

Yes.

This goes out to my sister, she’ll know why.

And I love how that one girl leaves the other one hanging at the end.
