Weekend Open Thread   Leave a comment

We survived Fed week, so now it’s time for the weekend open thread, where you can discuss any topic you like.

For your consideration, I offer Who Wants to Live Forever, the Queen song originally featured in the movie Highlander (an excellent film by the way).

I would rate this song as one of Queen’s best ever, not to mention one of the most beautiful songs ever done, and it really demonstrates what a truly remarkable singer that Freddie Mercury was. This is not an easy song to do well!

For a good example of how tough this song is, here is a failed cover by Seal:

It’s pretty bad when you have Queen backing you up, and you still can’t do better than that.

To cover this song, you better bring some serious singing talent. Sarah Brightman is up to the task, and does the best cover of it by capturing the beauty of the song perfectly:

I wish you all a weekend as beautiful as that song!

IRA PORTFOLIO UPDATE: It wasn’t hard to beat the indexes today, with just a 0.05% loss.
