Has anyone here heard Toto's live cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps? The original track is one of my favourite songs of all time. There are also a number of excellent live versions with Macca and Clapton. Amazing, moving song.

But the way Toto do it live is special. You can see that they understand the song. Very emotional, moody interpretation. I love it!

And don't ask me which version is better - Sophie's choice!

Sophie says The Beatles original version is the best, but saying that, the version on The Beatles Love album, basically a George Martin orchestral scored rendition of George's home demo, is pretty hot too.

You haven't seen the movie, have you? Sophie refused to choose.

If it's the one with Meryl Streep in it, then don't go supposing.

Being fair, if you wanted to see or hear Glenn Miller conducting Moonlight Serenade, live in front of his orchestra, then you'd have to go back to about 1944, as he disappeared on a flight across the English Channel, while the hostilities were still going on in Europe, in WWII.

A lot of people attribute it to a freak accident, where a squadron of returning bombers, who were unable to reach their target, for one reason or another, dumped their bombs in the channel. Unfortunately, as his flight plan was at a couple of hundred feet, it might have been on Major Miller's head. They've never found him or his plane, so no-one really knows.



I can recommend this 1 hour detective story, where they test the different theories. And they end up with a conclusion on what happened.
