   StormCnter  AS for Dr. Zhivago, I told my brother I wanted the album for Christmas. When I unwrapped my album, it was "Zorba the Greek". I glared at him, he shrugged his shoulders and said "Well, I knew it started with a Z". But, Zorba is good, too.

   GO3  I agree with Mei. BTW, dumb question, Storm. How do you embed the video into your post?

   MeiDei  Storm taught me - you copy & paste the https in full
( https://www.youtube.com/embed/UFv-fqQ9D_
Y?rel=0
)
and then eliminate the 's' ( http://www.youtube.com/embed/UFv-fqQ9D_Y
?rel=0
) That almost always works but today it did not for my posting of John Wayne & friends singing "God Bless America" on the movie wall. I'm using Google Chrome so maybe Storm can educate me too if there's a difference between that and IE or Firefox. Also it only works as an original post not as a follow up (in blue ). Good luck, I'm hoping you succeed soon!

   GO3  His music makes the movie in some cases. In a few his score is better than the movie; e.g., The Force Awakens.

   GO3  OK folks, I thought I'd start something spinning off of the movies and reviews wall: your favorite themes from movies and TV. I'll start with one of my favorites here:

   GO3  That's a good one. I would ask to do a first post on your songs so as to leave comments on that particular song. Thanks.

   MeiDei  If you're a big country music fan you've probably seen this video on the Country Music Awards Show last Nov (? ) Tell me, is George Strait part of the group singing?
Memorable performance by top artists.

   GO3  Was having a discussion with a co-worker last week on the never ending topic of "who's the best guitarist?" He mentioned someone to me who I hadn't thought of in ages and that's Les Paul. If you think about it, Les provided the basis for virtually every chord, riff, etc. we hear from all the modern greats. For your listening pleasure here is Les Paul and Mary Ford doing How High the Moon:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkGf1GHAxhE

Here is a new rendition by Jeff Beck and singer Imelda May. Frankly, Jeff is not up to Les in his playing, and his enthusiasm level is about zero, or maybe he wants to be somewhere else. I like Imelda's vocals and she looks happy performing. JMO.

   Safetydude  Not quite the same as Les Paul who was a pioneer with the electric guitar.

One of my favorites:

   GO3  Not saying others aren't talented - I sure as hell wouldn't be at their level - it's just my opinion that Les was the trailblazer for the next generations of guitar players.

   Mike PHX  GO, no arguments at all. Les Paul and Mary pretty much gave birth to Jimi and Jimmy.
Getting into a discussion about who's the best guitarist is like getting into a discussion about who's the best...
Drummer. Stop! No! I will not be sucked into this!

Somebody told me they heard an interview with Eric Clapton where he was asked what it felt like to be the worlds' greatest guitarist?
"You'll have to ask Prince," he answered.

   GO3  I'm skeptical too. Clapton, ex-Yardbird wouldn't mention Jimmy Page? Prince? Has to be a joke.
