  • The “Ave Maria” is my favorite. I show it in my classes in Music Theory and Music Appreciation.

    I was once on a plain with Mr. McFerrin. He seemed like a remarkably nice man.

    “Plane” not “plain.” D’oh.

    Fantastic! Thanks, Mark. I have a couple of recording of Bobby McFerrin, but I had never seen him perform. Notice how he sometimes seems to be playing an instrument while performing? In the Ave Maria I first thought he was playing some kind of flute, until I realized his fingers were playing on the microphone.
    I suppose Yoko Ono (or whatever her name is spelled) was just trying to imitate him; she needs a few decades more of practice – Away from the Public!

    Reading Bobby McFerrin comment threads on YouTube..it’s actually kinda cool. This guy has really touched people and changed people’s lives. So positive and beautiful. And on a YouTube thread!

    I’m telling you. There’s something about McFerrin that just gives me joy. Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNlmU4nPySI

    And yeah…poor Yoko. I’d say ‘learn a lesson’, but we’re talking about galaxies worth of lessons of a difference here…
