One of my favorites of all times!

You raise me up :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VqRlO3w ... re=related


When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

There is no life - no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.
The greater part of our happiness or misery
depends on our dispositions,
and not on our circumstances.
Martha Washington

YouTube has launched a new "video" to celebrate and advertise the Chrome browser, which recently became the third-most-popular browser in the United States. One of the reasons it's so popular is its speed, and this video attempts to celebrate that attribute.
The piece is called "Chrome FastBall." It's really more of a game than a video-this is not the standard YouTube player, but a Flash piece that is part-video, part-game. At first it appears to be a standard video of a cute little Rube Goldberg device. But then every few seconds the video stops, splits itself in two, and little puzzles and tasks emerge in the center for the viewer to perform before the video can continue. The goal is to be as quick as possible, to help the ball get to the end in record time :

Not a particularly huge fan of opera, myself...but the videos here are worth it, I think...and these are fairly well-known and recognizable bits...

WARNING: OPERATIC CONTENT(I told you so).

I don't like opera but sometimes I find a song beautiful. Most often than men voices.

The second video you posted is fun to watch.

The next song is important in my family. The song was when the (baby) son of my sister died because he only had a half heart.
My sister gave us (sisters and sisters in law), later a sculpture of an angel as a reward for our support and because of that song :

"Yvonne":

Yeah...I would rather go to the dentist than listen to opera, myself.

But, as you say, some of the bits are very nice.

This, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful melodies...period. Ever. Anywhere.

"O mio babbino caro", Puccini.

(By coincidence, for Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands Silver Jubilee Concert in Amsterdam, April 29th, 2005).

Completely nails it. Just spectacular.
