Exultate Jubilate

If you can't rely on Mozart, who can you rely on?

Managed to get myself all blue and depressed yesterday (Depression "is an art, like everything else. / I do it very well / I do it so it feels like hell / I do it so it feels real / I guess you could say I've a call"), so decided the only thing to do was turn off all the lights and listen to Mozart's Exultate, Jubilate (K.165). By the time I got to that last towering Alleluia I could feel myself soaring again, I was so prodigiously, dizzily happy.

Thank God for Mozart.

Or rather, Thank Mozart for God.

P.S. So now the only thing that cheers me up when I'm blue is the sound of a castrato singing. Great, just great.

I know exactly what you mean. MS subbalakshami singing the Annamacharya Kirtanas, Balamuralikrishna rendering Ramadasu Kirtanas or Chittibabu playing both the above Kirtanas on the Veena...my idea of bliss.

mozart, shozart..

to achieve utter bliss, one has to only listen to that hideous celine dion "my heart will go on" song remixed to a disco version. or my current favourite - the roxette number "listen to my heart" getting its dues - as a rap/dance number. More joy in all these maulings than a 100 un-remixed Hallelujahs.

Neela: Hmmm...Roxette and rap - what was it Shelley said about two self-canceling poisons in a cup?

never thought the day would come when you would be lauding Celine Dion over Mozart. Tsk. Tsk. How the mighty are fallen.

NOT CELINE DION!!! NOT CELINE DION!! Alas Falstaff you wrong me!!

I laud the idea of someone mauling that miserable warbling idiotte, someone setting her absurd My heart will go on (no wonder the Titanic sank) to some good old disco-beats - which is the only way anyone in their sane mind could ever listen to such amazingly bad stuff. I like to think of her and her legions of fans wincing and sighing at the thought of their ridiculous anthem being destroyed by 50 Cent or Ludacris, preferably both at the same time.

Am now looking forward to someone remixing anything by Michael Learns to Rock or Air Supply. Oh what a mauling that will be!

Tch! tch! how blood thirsty you are woman. What did Celine Dion ever do to you (except pollute the air everywhere you went with her inane shrieking...hmmm...can I get in on this rap project? I could be one of those people who make vague scratching noises on the disc. I've always wondered how you describe that: "I'm a musician" "Really? Strings, wind or percussion?" "Scratch".).

Will forgive you the gore for the glorious idiotte. Such an apt description
