Hello hello there

Uhm, I am sorry there have been such heated arguments regarding the Off Topic forum.

Well, I just love it - And I think moderators are doing a very good job here. I am a moderator at the Ancient Languages forum, so I am not biased, mind you

*** How about relaxing a bit with some music? ***

(A chorus of Prozians screaming: "Oh no!! More Flavio, that's a torture for our ears! No, pleaseeeeeee")

Don't worry, this time it is a short, nice song I just felt like recording it because it is one of my all time favourites

Do you remember the wonderful, magical, incredible Kate Bush? Well, I love her. After her fantastic debut single "Wuthering Heights" (1978), another single came out, much shorter and "home-made". She wrote the song when she was 15 and recorded it at that time, although the rest of the album came out in 1978 (that's why the voice sounds smaller and even sweeter in that song, as well as in "The Saxophone Song"). Of course, I am talking about the album "The Kick Inside".

The second single I am talking about was "The Man With The Child In His Eyes" (1978, recorded in 1975) - such a haunting, magical song!

Well, here is my humble version... I have recorded this three times in my life, and this is the newest, in case you had an older version of it

I hope you like it... and please, take it easy, ok?

Ave atque vale!

Flavius

Great song - thanks Jul 13, 2005

Thanks for sharing this great song with us. I'll dig out my original CD tonight. Kate Bush had some very, very god songs.

When is the CD coming out? Jul 13, 2005

You could combine a release party with a powwow. What would be a good title for it? Flavio Flavors? Music to Translate By?
