I find there is most stillness in classical music, it is more introspect than all other kinds of music. But it is not good for parties :)

Or same music but different interpretation, second video is best.

Pretty much anything by Kevin Wood, but start here. Incredible expression of beauty through music. Nice otherworldly art in the slide show as well

Thank you all for sharing the music. I created a couple of new stations on Pandora with a couple of the artists highlighted here. I am always grateful for new musical experiences that allow me to breath, and just be.

Yes, indeed, Italian language is just perfect for singing songs!


Thanks for reminding me of "Vanità di vanità", I'd forgotten that beautiful song :)
Do you understand its lyrics or you simply enjoy the music?

I wish I could speak Italian... I have a translation but it is probably not the best as somebody translated it from Italian to Hungarian and then somebody else from Hungarian to English. However here it is:

"You're searching here, you're searching there,
But when death swoops you,
What will remain of joy to you?
Only vanity.

You're happy, you're living for pleasure,
You're enjoying the shine of silver and gold,
But in the end, what will remain to you?
Only futile vainness.

You feel for something here, you feel for something there,
You would like to be happy allways,
You're healthy, happy, exiling any trouble,
But these are just futile vainness'.

If you look in to your eyes,
In the mirror,
You probably don't imagine that
Your predestination will
Come one day too.

Everithing is vanity, only vanity
So, live happily, but meek,
Be good - if you can,
All other things are futile vainness'.

Everithing is vanity, only vanity
Praise the LORD faithfully,
Give your love to God,
Then you lack of nothing."

Here's my translation:

You're searching here, you're searching there,
But when death comes upon you,
What will remain of your cravings?
Only vainness of vanity.

If you're happy of your thoughs,
Enjoying only of silver and gold,
At the end what will remain to you?
Only vainness of vanity.

You're searching here, you're searching there,
Chasing always happiness,
Healthy, cheerful and without struggle,
Only vainness of vanity.

If you now look in the mirror,
Your serene face,
You probably don't imagine,
What, one day, will be of your vanity.

Everything is vanity, only vanity,
So, live with joy and semplicity,
Be good if you can,
All the rest is vanity.

Everything is vanity, only vanity,
Praise the Lord with humility,
Give him all the love,
Then, you won't lack anything anymore.

My 8 year old has a little crush on this boy. He is adorable and the song is sad but beautiful.
