Vocal Miniatures - "Across The Universe" - The Beatles
"Across The Universe" - The Beatles
This song reminds me of my family - my parents and my brother - we grew up listening to all sorts of music in the house and the car. Singing this song takes me back to being a kid sitting in the back seat while my Mom and Dad drove us to wherever.
I've been learning LOTS of different songs over the past week. Old songs, new songs, from genres that encompass rock to folk to country to opera and art song. Things I may never perform in a concert setting but I believe are giving me a tremendous amount of value and pleasure.
I especially like the line "Jai Guru Deva Om" - the introduction to the high note on a closed vowel makes the more open vowel at the top line up really well!
