Youtube Comments

You know they're not worth reading...unless they are comments for some classical piece of music.

Concerning Rachmaninoff's Symphony no. 2:

Mobutu Sese Seko Nkuku Ngbendu:

Rachmaninov!! Rachmaninov!! Rachmaninov!!
All the suffering and torment of this Sisyphean farce we term life is worth it, if even for a moment, one can behold perfection! Half seductive melancholy, half incandesent bliss.

mrsbrown andhercat:

Yes dear, it's very nice isn't it? My hubby plays this on the banjo, but it's not the same.

Now, which is more likely: That Mr. Ngbendu is the noted Mr. Ngbendu? Or that Prince Albert Saxe-Coburg-Gotha played the banjo?

Paul Stilwell said...

Whoa, whoa, whoa there, wait a minute, what? Who?

Paul Stilwell said...

Okay, I see. Mobutu Sese Seko Nkuku Ngbendu. Died in 97. I'm going with Prince Albert playing the banjo.

Paul Stilwell said...

Oh wait a minute. That means the comment came from Queen Victoria. I'm still going with that.

I'm sure you're no great fan of Dame Judy, but there's a sweetness to the story
