Johnny Mathis (born John Royce Mathis, September 30, 1935) is an American singer of popular music.
One of the last in a long line of traditional male vocalists who emerged before the 1960s, Mathis concentrated on romantic jazz and pop standards for the adult contemporary audience through to the 1980s. Starting his career with a flurry of singles of standards, Mathis became more popular as an album artist, with a dozen of his albums achieving gold or platinum status, and over 60 making the Billboard charts. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Mathis has certified sales of over 17 million units in the United States.
Jane Olivor (born May 18, 1947) is an American cabaret singer. She was initially compared, often favorably, to Barbra Streisand and Édith Piaf as well as to Eartha Kitt and Johnny Mathis.
In 1979, his hit duet "The Last Time I Felt Like This" from the film Same Time, Next Year was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song. Mathis and Jane Olivor sang the song at the Oscar ceremony. This was his second performance at the Academy Awards.
2007 Was Another Record Year (Thankfully) For GA Manufacturers
Just this past week, leaders of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) announced that the 2007 year-end shipment figures for the general aviation industry have led to another record high in industry billings.
Speaking at GAMA’s Annual Industry Review and Market Outlook Briefing, GAMA Chairman and Chairman and CEO of Cirrus Design Corporation, Alan Klapmeier, reported that a strong worldwide market, especially outside of North America, was a driving factor for general aviation in 2007. “As these economies continue to expand, we expect general aviation to play an ever increasing role in these regions.”
Klapmeier added, “Manufacturer backlogs are strong and we think this bodes well for 2008 and the years beyond.”
Record industry billings totaled $21.9 billion, eclipsing last years’ figure by 16.5 percent. Year-end, worldwide shipments of general aviation airplanes totaled 4,272 units, the most in more than a quarter century and up 5.4 percent over the previous year's total of 4,053 units. Aside from the record set for year-end billings, the industry also experienced an all-time high in business jet shipments, delivering over one thousand units for the first time in history.
The piston airplane segment was down 2.9 percent in 2007, but still posted the second best year in over two decades. Total units decreased from 2,755 in 2006 to 2,675 in 2007. Shipments of turboprops increased 11.4 percent, up from 412 units in 2006 to 459 units in 2007. Business jet shipments reached an all-time high of 1,138 units, up 28.4 percent over last year’s figure of 886 airplanes.
Join Aero-TV in Part One of the Three-Part episode that features Alan Klapmeier's presentation... and then join us later next week for the Three Part Aero-TV presentation featuring GAMA's President Pete Bunce.

I thought of making another new version of this beautiful standards, but this time with vanBasco mini keys, so interested people can benefit from what I played...But even though, I noticed that unfortunately not all of the notes that I played appear in the video.
"Over the Rainbow" (sometimes mistakenly known as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow") is a song with music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg. It was written for the movie The Wizard of Oz, and it became Judy Garland's signature song.
The song's plaintive melody and simple lyrics depict a pre-adolescent girl's desire to escape from the "hopeless jumble" of this world, from the sadness of raindrops to the bright new world "over the rainbow." It expresses the childlike faith that a door will magically be opened to a place where "troubles melt like lemon-drops".
The song is so popular that it tops the "Songs of the Century" list compiled by the Recording Industry Association of America and the National Endowment for the Arts. It also topped the American Film Institute's "100 Years, 100 Songs" list.
Along with Irving Berlin's "White Christmas", the song was adopted by the American troops in Europe in World War II as a symbol of the United States, the faraway land that, after long years of war, seemed like a dream beyond the rainbow. Modern listeners may be unaware that the song had an introductory stanza, as this was not sung in the film by Garland. However, there is one known recorded instance of her singing the full song with the introductory verse, on The Louella Parsons Radio Show in December 1948.
The song has come to epitomize the gesture of the rising octave, which makes its opening so distinctive. Sight-singing instructors and other musicians use the song as an example and a reference point for hearing the interval. The music is heavily inspired by the 'Song to the Moon' by Dvorak's opera Rusalka.

This is a FACTUAL reason why Piracy is here to stay.
The movie companies put this trailer at the beginning of DVD's, but they attempt to compare Piracy to stealing. Stealing is a crime. Piracy is simply NATURE!
When the Press was first invented, it was called the work of the Devil. The ones in power didn't want people to have access to information. Books that only a few had access to, could now be smuggled into the hands of the wider public.
When the Audio Cassette Tape was invented, there were lawsuits. The music publishers cried this would drive them out of business.
When the Video Recorder was invented, yes you guessed it, more lawsuits, and a lot of end of the world claims again, this time from the movie makers. from Wikipedia: "In the early 1980s, the film companies in the USA fought to suppress the device in the consumer market, citing concerns about copyright violations."
When Cable TV was invented, there were lawsuits again as this seemed to be the end for TV companies.
When the first Portable MP3 Player was invented, and as found on Wikipedia - 'On October 8, 1998, the American recording industry group, the Recording Industry Association of America, filed an application for a Temporary Restraining Order to prevent the sale of the Rio player in the Central District Court of California, claiming the player violated the 1992 Audio Home Recording Act.'
Business models change all the time! The big heads are slow to adapt. The slow ones go out of business. Either keep wasting your energy in trying to stop human nature, or face change and embrace it.
Either way, don't try to insult and brainwash us with force-fed DVD clips like this.
Once upon a time there were these dudes just jamming in a garage. One of them came up with a cool song idea. They made that into a cool song...then they came up with other cool tunes... Then the dudes came up with a few thousand dollars and recorded their 3 best tunes for a demo.... then they (or the hired somebody) took this demo to the Big-Shot Record Labels and after being turned down a bunch one label signs them. Millions of dollars pour into making a Super Cool Tune and then 11-14 not as cool tunes to go on a compact disk. The Big-Shot Record Label pays radio stations to play the Super Cool Tune, pays millions for an expensive video for MTV (often owned by the same parent company as Big-Shot Record Label), pays for posters, production, artwork, mastering, manufacturing, advertising, advertising disguised as interviews on radio, TV and in magazines. The put the dudes on tour with merchandising, ticket sales, refreshment concessions...etc etc...until the dudes recouped the millions of dollars fronted to them by The Big-Shot Record Label and live happily ever after.<br><br>This is a fairy tale this doesn't happen very much anymore. CD sales have plummeted and record labels a less willing to gamble on unproven acts (especially since 9 out of 10 albums fails to re-coup on the investment). The big labels are tightening their grip on what they release to the public attempting to maximize profit and control while minimizing investment and risk.
The Big Shot Labels were releasing "product". The product construct is breaking down and giving way to "content". Product is a specific quantifiable unit like a compact disk..***ntent is a diffuse intangible mist of information which may include playable music files, digital graphics, text, self-referencing hyper-links, streaming video, blogs, webzines, discussion boards, etc... Content has a wealth of incarnations and forms but works at a fraction of the cost of "product".. Content does not conform to regulations or format restrictions, it is chaotic and free-flowing. The realm of ideals has never been easier to manifest.<br><br>With the Internet, anyone anywhere can access any type music anytime of day...and usually for free. The Internet has provided the information on how to make music, the digital format to record music, and a distribution channel for music. The Internet is not only replacing the conventional promotion and distribution channels used by the traditional recording industry, it is DISSOLVING the recording industry. Top down distribution is being replaced by peer to peer digital distribution, mostly without the knowledge of industry professionals.<br><br>This is a documentary from the front lines of the San Francisco Bay Area Independent Rock scene. This is a discovery of the present and a dialog on the future. In this footage, I interview the musicians I meet along my journey (my peers) to promote discussion about having the power to generate "media content" and it's place in the current time. As an observer and a participant in this epoch of time I hope to expose and demonstrate my findings.<br><br>In the first episode I take the camera to the 7th annal Bands 4 Bands awards ceremony. The band I play guitar for, Swaybone, had been nominated for "Best Band" award. I brought a camera along to see what I could discover. In this installment I interview Theo Ceder, lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter for Swaybone on our walk from the car to the venue the ceremony is held. He too has thoughts and opinions on the time we live in and how "content" is disseminated.

PARTY RECORDS 2010. The first single off of DJ Party Slayer's fifth studio album "Urine Smells Like Popcorn?" is now released and it's a remix of the Hilary Duff song "Burned" which appears on her critically-acclaimed record "Dignity".
"Dignity" is the fourth studio album by American pop singer Hilary Duff, released by Hollywood Records on April 3, 2007. Between the releases of her previous studio album, Hilary Duff (2004), and Dignity, she had an eventful personal life; she was stalked by a man who threatened her life, her parents separated and she broke up with her boyfriend. Instead of mainly selecting songs and only writing a few, as she did with her previous records, she contributed to the writing of all but one song, and often collaborated with songwriter Kara DioGuardi, who had previously written for her.
Duff was musically inspired by indie rock band The Faint and pop singers Beyoncé Knowles and Gwen Stefani. In contrast to the pop rock themes of her prior releases, Dignity takes on more of a dance sound, which she said was not her intention while writing the album. The lyrics reference the events Duff experienced in the years leading to the album's release, and the album's songs contain influences of rock and roll and hip hop music.
Critical response was mostly positive; while Duff's weak singing voice was noted, the album was praised for its songwriting and her new musical direction. Upon release, Dignity debuted at #3 in the US, a lower peak than Duff's previous albums and with lower sales, which Billboard attributed to the loss of fans during her musical evolution. Despite the relatively poor performance of the album, it produced Duff's highest-peaking US single to date, "With Love" (#24), and two US number one club hits. The album has reached the top ten in several countries and was certified Gold in the US by the Recording Industry Association of America.
"Six Feet Under" from 1989 is One of the best known G.e. Songs ! Greenhouse Effect Mixtape Songs; This classic track is an all out politically motivated attack on the recording industry that was written, produced, and nearly entirely recorded by Guitarist Phil Keegan. The tight drumming and bass playing by Clark Hagins and Rick Carmody respectively adds a jazzy feel to this bluesy "Eric Clapton / Stevie Ray Vaughn" type little three minute jam. The angry pointful lyrics are a true, heartfelt rant - that has become the thing of indie rock legend by Keegan...
