My vote for the most beautifully sung song ever.

Eva became a big star in the UK posthumously. One of her fans persuaded the
BBC to play one of her tunes. People started to call in, one thing led to another, and that was all it took. US media is strictly pay-for-play, so you never hear her here. It's illegal, but the last thing the government wants to do is tangle with the media, so they look the other way.

Eva's version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow is now standard, replacing the original, and was voted the best pop song of the 20th century.

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida sung in Finnish. This guy is one of the most popular singers and actors in Finland, he did the Finnish voice for Aladdin's Genie and has an operatic voice. He mostly does folk music and mainstream pop, this seems to be his only rock number. It sounds a lot like Mahavishnu's Dance of Maya. Hypnotic! There is a truly bizarre solo by something that sounds like a duck call. It seems to be entirely serious though.

Flash mob is a bit of an exaggeration. More of a trickle mob.

You know you're getting old when you are familiar with DirecTV's Sonic Tap 60's. 70's, 80's, and '90's hit songs. This is one of my favorites from the 60's.

If you like this song, look up Bobby Bland on YouTube. One of the best blues vocalists ever. I don't have the bandwidth to stream videos, so I'm stuck with an audio-only track.

When I was a kid, WTGrant ran a special on transistor radios. Not the pocket-kind, but much larger (and better-sounding) radios that could be run off multiple C batteries, which we couldn't afford, or had to be plugged in. There was a station in Buffalo that I could tune in every day after sunset, and get all sorts of "race" music. Eventually, that station fell prey to the black pop music scene, but I loved the music.

I don't have the bandwidth to preview and link much of Bobby Bland's stuff on YouTube, but here is a sample. BB and Bobby.

Very nice. Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen used to play this, but this is a lot better than that. They don't make 'em like they used to.
