In honor of the recent “blue moon,” Jay plays four songs about the moon—two classical, two popular. He also has some Quincy Jones, some Cannibal Corpse (yup), some Villa-Lobos, and some Bruckner. Complain if you will, but not about a lack of variety.

Rodgers & Hart, “Blue Moon
Bellini, “Vaga luna, che inargenti
Dvořák, “Song to the Moon,” from “Rusalka”
Howard, “Fly Me to the Moon
Jones, “The Streetbeater
Cannibal Corpse, “Frantic Disembowelment
Villa-Lobos, “Punch,” from “The Baby’s Family”
Villa-Lobos, “Lullaby” from “The Baby’s Family”
Bruckner, Symphony No. 4

    Cannibal Corpse, “Frantic Disembowelment

    This was…unexpected. But not a complete surprise. There is less daylight between metal and opera (particularly northern European) than I used to think, including opera divas fronting metal bands. I like it!

    Cannibal Corpse was …er… interesting but not my cup of tea. Perhaps I should say not my type of dish in keeping with the …er… cannibal theme.

    Heh.

    Yeah, I’m not a fan of the genre for the most part. Five Finger Death Punch is a step or two down on the sandpaper-gargle scale and their videos often tell compelling stories (e.g. soldiers, police). But I think a lot of opera composers would have been totally into some modern metal bands.
