    "My Favorite Things" is a show tune from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music.


    I'm not sold on the visuals, but I really like her 'cover' that is currently topping the top 100


    But my girls aged 8 and 10 really dig Ariana and I must admit I find her cool to. She is very rhytmical in her singing .. and I like that it's totally defined after the diva age of yesteryear

    No, we just moan about how today isn't as good as the old days until we're dead.

    The constant utter negativity from bitter conservative old men grates. We're supposed to be creative, free thinkers. Ha! :rolleyes:

    Maybe maybe not. My wife is her target audience, even she admits there is little to no substance there. These things tend to go in circles. Disco died, thank God.

    What I will congratulate Miss Grande on is knowing how to make money.

    I know a teenaged girl who cries to some of Grande's music. She finds a lot of meaning in much of Grande's music.

    While I won't be around, I wonder how well she holds up over the next 50+ years.

    If you are talking about the lyrics, I cannot pretend to be able to relate to a teenage girl. Music that never dies, has it all. Good playing, good lyrics, good beat, good hook...

    This stuff is just cold. It will fade in time. The only thing that may remain is the money made.

    Hindsight is fantastic. You can bet your arse some Nelson Eddy loving twit was saying that about the Beatles in 1964, and was convinced that they were right.

    Well, my student was talking about the songs, so that would include music and lyrics. It might be cold to you, but that doesn't make it true for everyone.
    Also, everything fades.

    Ah, then yes, she is part of the target audience. However, she clearly prefers things from an earlier time.

    Does it? I know plenty of people still listening to some pretty old stuff. Beethoven is one of my favorites.

    Hard to compare notes when most of the famous artists back then came before the web and had the success they did,

    Not hindsight, just wondering. I haven't seen many with that sort of staying power, but she may have it. She is sure starting out with a world wide audience almost immediately. Took the Beatles a couple of years selling records and doing concerts to gain a global audience. They didn't get satellite coverage until Hey Jude was broadcast live.
