Default Song's driving me crazy

The new Volvo commercial features a soprano singing a staccato series of very high notes. It has been stuck in my brain for some time. I've heard that aria so many times and just couldn't place it. So I did a little search. It is the Queen of the Night aria from Magic Flute. Here is a wonderful YouTube video of several great sopranos so you can compare them. The highest note is C above High C, right near the far right end of the piano keyboard.

You picked the wrong soprano to listen to, you need to shop around more.

Believe it or not, I know three singers of opera. Two tenors and a soprano. One of the tenors was a protege of Luciano Pavarotti. I enjoy many operas, although if your read the Libretto along with the performance, you realize that most of the older operas are silly beyond belief. Some modern operas are being performed now. The soprano is Melinda Whittington-Bugaiski, the wife of one of my favorite eye docs and weeks from giving birth. BTW, no one is getting rich in opera these days.

Melinda Whittington - 'Song to the Moon' from Rusalka:


Here's Melinda singing something more modern:

ROTFLMAO..........I am right along side of you on the bridge, Rick. Not my kind of music or kind of women with a voice like that you don't need a knife to slice bread.

Now that's just plain wrong posting something like that......hopefully it won't get stuck in my head...there's no extra room. That's another good reason we record TV so I can skip the ads.

Yesterday, afterposting the piece about the Lamborghini, I found an ad for the brand on my news feed. So we're being monitored even here. Better be a little careful what we say. Just for fun, Chevy, Chevy, Chevy, Chevy, Chevy, Chevy, Chevy, Chevy. And crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes, crocodile shoes. crocodile shoes.

I'll post if I see related ads. Maybe I'll click through since the advertiser pays per click through. Let em pay for invading our privacy. I think it would be interesting if we all did that and cost them money to invade our privacy.
