@Letty,
One of my fave Paul Simon songs and also an awesome video clip. Quite revolutionary sound recording for its time (or this). I love it on vinyl with my stereo system and turntable:

Things seem to be going okay despite some setbacks. Hoping for the best.

@Letty,
Louis Armstrong always makes me think of New Orleans, so here's a Crescent
City confession. Back in '71 I had to be carried back home from Mardi Gras.
They tell me I had a great time.

I cannot tell you all how much I appreciate your music.

neco, I love Summer Breeze
edgar. I loved that Baker Street song. Didn't know it, so thanks for the introduction

Ragman,Diamonds on the Soul was also a great one and thanks for the bumps.

Latin George, Knock on Wood and Mardi Gras were especially soothing.

Hope I didn't miss any of your contributions. Suffice it to say I loved them all and returned me to my calm place.

Going to saying goodnight with a serenade that I have done before, but it too is soothing

It is so good to have friends like you here.

From Letty with love and appreciation to all of you

@Letty,
Good morning dear Lefty. It's a weird coincidence that we both have seranades to share this morning. You Schubert and mine from Brahms.

@tsarstepan,
Good morning to all from our radio here in Florida.

tsar, Is that your great sense of humor showing again? Love it dear friend. Perhaps it's just my computer that is on the fritz.

Here's one to match:

and, y'all, a birthday guy. More synchronicity, because this is the one that I heard when I was driving to Tenessee to be with my son. This will be our hymn for Sunday.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, Welcome back to you as well. I love songs based on classical music. Jackie Wilson was great doing that one. Tonight we Love by Perry was also one based on that great classical musician.

I know I played this one before, but it's worth playing more than once, y'all.

Once again calling all poets, music lovers, musicians, and painters.

For this aftertnoon a Gregorian Chant for our Roman Catholic friends.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MbDqc3x97k

and, y'all, a secular song that I love. (RIP Bill)

First, some info on the singer that I don't know:

Kenny Rankin (Los Angeles, February 10, 1940 - June 7, 2009) was an American pop and jazz singer and songwriter, originally from the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City, New York.

Now his version of a song that I really love:

Ah, well. One more time and then I'll quit. Calling Scotland, England, and France.

Our poem for today.

George Gordon, Lord Byron (1788-1824)

She Walks in Beauty

1
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
2
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
3
And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Now, the song:

@edgarblythe,
edgar, welcome back to you, dear friend. Thanks for your comment and personal acknowledgement.

I didn't know that on by Lefty, but it reminded me of this one.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50k18gL76AU

I believe the story about the woman in black putting a flower on Rudolph Valentino's grave

@eurocelticyankee,
Gollys, euro, if you wanted to wake everyone up you should have given them Clannad's Against the Wind.

Probably not sufficiently restful, though.

@Letty,
Lefty's record of Long Black Veil is the original version of the song. Great one.
