Cotton Candy by Curve. I saw an interview with Toni Halliday from the time Come Clean was released, and I was dying for the interviewer to ask her what this song is about.

The soundtrack to Conan the Barbarian (1982) Basil Poledouris was so underrated, but in my eyes as good if not better than his contemporaries.

My kids made we watch that movie so many times the VHS tape finally wore out so bad you couldn't watch it. We buried poor Arnie in the trash can that day. I didn't like him for years after that movie. Now I can't remember most of it. I think it left scars in my brain somewhere.

I am sorry to hear of your Arnold related trauma :smile:

As a fan of sword and sorcery movies Conan is probably top of the pile, some of the rip offs it inspired like Ator the fighting eagle and Ironmaster are good for a few laughs though :laugh: oddly many of them were made in Italy so they were probably financed by the mafia.

Then maybe you'll appreciate the other pain I suffered too!  Same year. Beastmaster. Another VHS tape played until completely trashed. Kids loved Beastmaster and his 2 ferrets. I liked his buddy most. Tonya Roberts. Yummy. Then she played Sheena couple of years later. I volunteered to watch that movie, several times. 🙂

Sitting on the porch, having coffee, listening to wind and rain, a bit of thunder, and no planes! It's sureal. We live in the flight path to a busy airport. You just get so used to the sound of planes all the time you ignore it, mostly. Now I'm listening to the sounds of silence, while outside, for real. It's interesting just how calming that can be.

@hocico - Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

I will never hear Amazing Grace (or Taps) and not have it stir up emotions in me. I love the version done with Celtic Woman (with bagpipes).

Most welcome buddy :smile: , I found the concert very poignant and moving and I felt after listening to it, I just had to share it on here with you all as a message of hope and unity among all the peoples of the world in this time of great trial. 

Ah man I am the same, Amazing Grace is one of those songs that never fails to stir up my emotions. I will check out the version you mentioned as it sounds intriguing. 

Peace be with you, 

Hocico

Look on Youtube for Celtic Woman. You'll find that and several other inspiritaional songs they do plus it'll be on video. Their concert from several years back as awesome. And I generally don't even get into Celtic music, but they'll be an exception for me.

Amos Lee, utube, live from Red Rocks.  As his name suggests, Amos is about the coolest white guy ever.
