"Stand by Me"
« on: May 01, 2009, 08:40:33 am »

If you can do the YouTube thing - This is a nice rendition of the song "Stand By Me".  (now how can I incorporate this into HSing today?  I know Geography!)

I saw that on PBS and loved it!!!(I assume the youtube is the same one I saw with musicians from all over the world). Talk about a world community.  And definitely a geography lesson.

I'm not sure if I originally found it posted here or not, but couldn't find it with a search.

Wow. I'm about as unmusical as anybody can get, but that was tremendous. Not only great music, but imagine what it took to orchestrate that worldwide effort as one grand performance. Good one, mutti!
