I spent some time trying to identify the Puccini aria sung by the now famous homeless subway rider in Los Angeles.    https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-10-01/homeless-singer-viral-la-subway-opera   Very beautiful and very familiar, but not identifiable with the Puccini operas with which I'm familiar (not Tosca, Madama Butterfly, La Boheme, and certainly not Turandot).   Finally, I pinned it down:  "Mio babbino caro" from Gianni Schichi.  While the aria is very familiar, the opera isn't.

Just in case anyone else was puzzled!

Not listening to right now, but am looking forward to seeing Bill Staines in concert next Tuesday in Moscow Idaho. Been a fan of his since 1978 when I heard him on "Prairie Home Companion". He will also be in Spokane, Seattle, Oso, Wenatche and Coeur D'Alene this month. A fine singer songwriter in the folk genre. Been to numerous concerts of his. Always in a small, personal, and up close setting. (For those of you on the eastside, he is recording an episode of "Jam with Dan" on October 7th. Don't know when it will air.)

Going to see her tonight at the Paramount so I've been listening to her songs a lot lately.


edited--I was not familiar w/ the opening act--Allie X--at all, so I've been listening to some of her stuff.  I actually really like it.  First time I've been excited to see an opener in forever.  And it fits stylistically too.

One more.  I stumbled onto this, forgot about it, then got reminded again.  Really catchy.

Got Eilen Jewell's latest, "Gypsy," from the library.  A bit hit and miss on first listen but several I really like.

Allie X quickly led me to another non mainstream, kinda weird synth pop artist.

Saturday night and time for a little concert action… Here’s Tears For Fears (Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith) performing in Rio de Janeiro, September 22, 2017.  Below is the set list if you want to skip around.  The opening is by Lorde--Everybody Wants to Rule the World as the band comes on stage. Then things start to improve.  It's a long concert but at the least go to 55:18 for Head Over Heels.  There’s a long pause at the end while some announcers talk  rolleyes.gif , but you can skip ahead to Shout at 01:03:13 for the Encore.  When you get the song you want to hear, go Full Screen.  Enjoy, ~z


Everybody Wants to Rule the World (Lorde) 00:00
Everybody Wants to Rule the World 02:14
Secret World 06:42
Sowing the Seeds of Love 11:33
Advice for the Young at Heart 18:17
Everybody Loves a Happy Ending 22:44
Change 28:04 Mad World 32:18
Memories Fade 35:55
Creep 41:20
Pale Shelter 45:55
Break It Down Again 50:41
Head Over Heels 55:18
Shout 01:03:13
