Playing for Change just posted their version of Dylan’s All Along the Watchtower. It’s a spine-tingling rendition of a song with some timely lyrics:
There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late
I have started learning Spanish. I went through four semesters of Spanish in college decades ago. I still remember a spattering of words but cannot understand the spoken word – frustrating because I listen to a lot of Latin music but can’t follow the lyrics.
I’m using Pimsleur. I tried Rosetta Stone but I couldn’t get the software to work, and their customer service was frustratingly ineffective. Pimsleur has been much better. I’m also using the Madrigal’s Key To Spanish and some free web sites of which there are many. Two in particular are Yabla and Que Onda Spanish.
