Youtube presented me with this, yesterday - not heard it in years. 'Julia Dream' (early Pink Floyd).

I remember my brother being the eldest had these LPs -some of which I liked and other stuff I was never so sure of but then I was still in single numbers in age when he used to play his Pink Floyd LPs _ i have to say I don't recall this one at all, but then my taste was always very different -I was the emotional little brother and he was the fearless big brother

Puccini - Senza Mamma Suor Angelica. I just love this song and I have listened to it for many many years -a mother's grief, but this is so equally a child's grief the other way round. In the end the music really says it all. I chose the Morse version because it is one of the best recorded versions, plus I watched every single episode of Morse, I was a huge fan at the time and sad to see Morse finally leave the world of TV drama and fiction.

I only ever liked the very early stuff and 'Another Brick in the Wall' which was on TOTP on BBC 4, Friday, actually.
This was certainly a strange tune, backed up by that animation!

Anyone do their O level music, in the early 80's? One of the six composers we had to learn was Mozart's clarinet quintet in A minor which introduced me to the world of Mozart and I loved it. One piece I have always admired is Laudate Dominum. Mozart's requiem featured heavily in the film Amadeus but the most beautiful part got left out. So here is what I think is the best part sung by Janis kelly for the Morse recordings -all live orchestra and voice...

An amazing but short choral piece dating from about 1450 -Es kommt ein Schiff geladen ("A ship is coming, laden"). There is nothing quite like losing ourselves when time permits and transporting our thoughts for a few minutes to something else that gives us a break from the monotony of dementia...

Things, in my view, are so much better when shared with one's LO

I miss her terribly, even though she's in the next room

When I go to visit Mum I have a good blast of whatever Radio 2 are playing, there and back. The volume depends on my mood!
If I’m struggling, a guilty pleasure is on YouTube. It’s a Strictly dance from a few years ago. Faye and Giovanni dancing a Charleston, th The Lonely Goatherd from The Sound of Music. It’s silly and joyful.

James, my late husband and I loved to watch Morse. This song is sublime.

As an aside, Colin Dexter who wrote Morse taught languages at the school where I taught English. We were not there at the same time.

Could someone please tell me how to link to music videos as you have all done? When I copy and paste a link into an email it works like that, but when I try to do the same here it just comes up with an unclickable link and no picture.

This is what I do, I use an Android phone (someone will be able to explain it better)
Go on YouTube - choose which video - click 'share' - options come up, click 'copy link' (this puts it onto my clipboard, access available on my keyboard) - come back to this page - click the 6th icon from the left at top of reply box (3 vertical dots) - 7 icons are displayed, click the 3rd from left (looks like a fold in top right hand corner) - enter the link from your clipboard where it says 'enter media URL' - click 'continue' - then click 'post reply'
