MP3 music clips

These clips were put together hastily.

The voice was not recorded in a studio - so please excuse. As soon as a studio is available, the voice will be recorded properly.

Caruso
Lucio Dalla 1986 Many tenors have sung this. Perhaps the most popular version is by Luciano Pavarotti. I added a bit of modern guitar. I think my next version will be in a swing.

Dalla wrote this song about the Italian tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921).
         
Jazzy

Corazon Espinada
Carlos Santana;
Jose Fernando emilio Olvera Sierra
1999



Viby Latin rock, great for Cuban cha-cha, or salsa. I managed to replicate Carlos Santana's guitar sounds on my keyboard.

The song's title is about a heart that is stung by thorns.

Live is life
Opus 1985

Any song with na-na-na-na has great party vibe... I added some more modern synth sounds.
