Hayley Williams, lead singer of punk/emo band Paramore, and B.O.B, a rapper, on "Airplanes".

I actually quite like it although that might have more to do with my fancying of Ms Williams.

Menuhin and Grappelli Play "Jealousy" & Other Great Standards. Maybe not unusual in that they made quite a few recordings together, but it's fascinating how two musicians from different genres have such a rapport.

same here, m. kurtz, an excellent version of a pop classic - but very much a "guilty pleasure" on here. can't remember if i already asked you if you're a t.s. eliot fan, given yr nom de plume ?

yes - did collected poems at A level and the Wasteland kind of sits in my head for the last thirty plus (i'm 51) years - and every time you go back it seems to have changed...Prufrock and Preludes and the mad stuff about Sweeney...oh that grim one 'Webster was much possessed by death
and saw the skull beneath the skin' - as a tormented and lapsed catholic it gets difficult to deal with the later stuff..choruses from the rock...and well I suspect you know alot more about his work than I do, but yes i am a fan. Like Larkin alot too..equally bleak and grimly humorous at times...

indeed, that's "whispers of immortality" with classic lines like "grishkin is nice - her russian bust, gives promise of pneumatic bliss". "waste land" is my fave poem of all time tho' , did it for my 6th year english dissertation 30 years ago. as u say, always somethiong new to discover. like larkin too, especially "mr bleaney" ; always reminds me of simon & garfunkel's "a most peculiar man".
shantih, shantih, shantih....

pneumatic bliss.... marvellous stuff..but these days I am much possessed by death - Larkin Aubade has to be the coldest, finest poem on mortal dread ever written....

The Wasteland with its multiple voices and universe of references remind me of my hero Dylan who also casts a wide net for samples and fragments, a tune here and a phrase their from blues and country and folk, and assembles something new....surely Desolation Row is a route to The Wasteland....and so forth...instead of TS Eliot and Ezra Pound fighting in the captains tower (they were friends and I believe Pound trimmed and re-mixed the Wasteland 'He do the police in different voices' (itself a quote from Dickins Our Mutual Friend).....who should be fighting with Dylan in the captains tower..Pete Seegar perhaps ?

time gentlemen....

interesting, m.kurtz, i'd probably nominate & out-and-out songwriter like leonard cohen to wrestle dylan (not one of my favourites, but an acknowledged good writer at least) to the ground. didn't eliot dedicate "waste land" to pound (who did indeed suggest cutting lots of it), naming him as "il miglior fabbro" (the better workman).
hurry up please, it's time...incidentally, ever checked out genesis's "cinema show", based on, if i remember right, part 3 of w.l. ?

gosh no - sounds interesting : The Wasteland would make a fine concept prog album....

Menuhin did quite a few, eg with Ravi Shankar and Scots fiddler Hector McAndrew.

Another obvious one is Robert Plant and Sandy Denny on Zep's Battle of Evermore.
