“The War on Ukraine is an unimaginable tragedy... As a human, and as an artist, I felt compelled to respond in the most significant way I could.

So today, for the first time ever, I publicly performed my Dad’s song, IMAGINE.

Why now, after all these years? - I had always said, that the only time I would ever consider singing ‘IMAGINE' would be if it was the ‘End of the World’…

But also because his lyrics reflect our collective desire for peace worldwide. Because within this song, we’re transported to a space, where love and togetherness become our reality, if but for a moment in time…

The song reflects the light at the end of the tunnel, that we are all hoping for...

As a result of the ongoing murderous violence, millions of innocent families, have been forced to leave the comfort of their homes, to seek asylum elsewhere.

I’m calling on world leaders and everyone who believes in the sentiment of IMAGINE, to stand up for refugees everywhere! Please advocate and donate from the heart. #StandUpForUkraine”

—Julian Lennon

I went to a blues concert at the Merriwhether Post Pavilion one time - Litte Feat with Lowell George, Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Bonnie Raitt. Each did their sets then they all came back on stage together for a big ol’ jam. It was lit!!
That would have been epic and beyond.

I saw Bonnie just afterthe No Nukes record came out, and she was super great, but I can't remember who the supports were.

Listening to different performers on the same piece is generally a requirement for musicians (especially when in school). However, so as to not create a post with 15 different versions of the same song on organ, instead I will show the same piece done on a variety of different instruments.

The easiest one to find many different versions is Bach's “Little” Fugue in g minor, BWV 578.

We first start with organ, since that was the original. Since I don't have a recording of me playing it (and I have many times) we will start with Jonathan Scott


You can't keep a brass group away from a Bach Fugue so next comes the Canadian Brass


Saxophones want to feel some Bach loving so here is a Saxophone Quartet – US Army Field Band


Are you tired of wind instruments? How about guitars?

Tetraktys Guitar Quartet


Matching bands always have to get into the act but usually create a shorter version to fit into their larger show.

The Carolina Crown


And yes, you can sing it, and swing it.

The Swingle Singers


I imagine there are all sorts of other versions for this fugue.

Off Topic
John Prine. Sigh. I used to go to bluegrass festivals all over the DC Metro area. Back then, Bathyspere or whatever it’s called was the Bluegrass Capitol of the US. So much bluegrass.

One year in Blackwater Falls WV both Steve Goodman and Doug Kershaw were absolutely blotto for their sets. Goodman started to fall off the stage at one point and Prine bounded over, caught him, and then called for his guitar and they finished the set together. Kershaw was so far gone, he couldn’t even begin his set so Prine did yet a third set that day. I didn’t mind at all.

Hubby loved the cover. He sent it to me in an email. I prefer the original. Hubby and I disagree about the Lenny Kravitz cover of "American Woman" in the second Austin Powers movie. I prefer the original by the Guess Who.

I prefer most originals, with the exception maybe of Bob Dylan songs. :rotflmao:

R.E.M. did covers of 2 or 3 Velvet Underground tunes. Not sure which version of "There She Goes Again" I'd prefer, as they both sound great.

The Velvet's version:

Somebody mentioned Mario Brothers on another thread so....

The original music by Koji Kondo (you can make the bing sounds yourself).


BYU VocalPoint (they are nice enough to add the game sound effects vocally).


I'm an organist. You didn't t think I would skip that? This is only the first movement, the opening theme. I may have the organ sheet music for this but I have not bothered to work it up.

The great Bryan Ferry was brought up in the other thread, so then I remembered that he's done a LOT of covers. He's done two whole albums of nothing but covers of Dylan tunes.

I can't say this is one of my favorite Dylan songs, but it's probably my favorite Ferry cover of a Dylan tune.

Interesting. I hadn't heard any of Morse's work before. Of course, the odds I'm going to like the cover of a Rush tune (especially a Lifeson-heavy song) are almost infinitesimally small - I'm just that much of a Rush fan, but Morse's take isn't bad. There were some things I really didn't care for - in particular his heavy use of very short staccato and muting of strings. It made it sound to me like he was leaving bits out here and there or maybe "ghosting" the music instead of actually putting it out there to be heard. That probably doesn't make much sense, but I don't know how else to put it.

I can tell. though, that Morse is a very talented guitarist. That song is one Hel of a beast to play - I tried many times before I had to stop playing. Not that I was ever that great of a player - more high-mediocre than anything :) But Morse has got some serious chops and I'll need to check out some of his other work.

Thanks for sharing that!

Steve's start was the Dixie Dregs, and unfortunately we've probably lost him as a touring musician as he's staying home with his wife who's battling cancer. I've been privileged to see him twice as a Dreg and it was magical.
