Thanks so much for the suggestion. Sad, but gorgeous.
Dear Wall, How do you feel about your portrayal in Pink Floyd’s famous album?
Comfortably numb. But seriously, it’s not about me; it’s distant family member. I’d rather work toward uniting people than isolating them.
Last night, I went to the BSO where Daniil Trifonov played Bach 3. Is it just me or was he making out with the piano?
I work nights, so I didn’t see the performance, but I’d definitely say there’s something to that based on this one: bit.ly/bc-trifonov
Who is your favorite acapella group? <3
It all depends on my mood. I love The Acoustics, Against the Current, the Bostonians, the Common Tones, the Dynamics, the Heightsmen, and the Sharps, and when I’m feeling more Renaissance, the Madrigals. Anyone interested can find some recordings here: bit.ly/BC-acapella.
Why do white people like the song “Mr. Brightside” so much?
Fun fact: the song has never left the UK charts since 2004. This recent article from Vox gives a summary of the song’s recent popularity—along with some excellent memes: bit.ly/MrBrightsideBC
Do you think Migos is better than the Beatles?
Apples & oranges, or if we’re can compare record labels, Apple and Quality Control Music. If you’re going to go comparing remarkably different pop music groups, you’ll have to define what you mean by “better.” More popular? Reviewed more favorably? Broader appeal? More musically diverse? More musically unified? More culturally embedded? More culturally challenging? You might also want to give Migos some time to establish themselves… the Beatles have had a 50 year head start for their music to infiltrate every nook and cranny of the world.
