Is this thread for posting links to songs that I like? e.g.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXa9tXcMhXQ

Or also for sharing other "interesting" songs I stumbled upon? e.g.

The landfill doesn't exist anymore. It's been incinerated instead.

Of the five (allegedly) easy pieces, the two played by the Nicholson character are both by Chopin. In the bizarre scene of him playing the upright piano on the back of the lorry travelling along the highway he plays part of the Fantasy in F minor, Op 49. The other piece is the Prelude Op 28|4. As far as I know, Brendel does not include Chopin in his repertoire.

The other three pieces are by Mozart (x2) and Bach. Both are much more likely candidates for Brendel, but were not played by the Nicholson character.

You've mentioned Five Easy Pieces before and on the strength of it I hired the DVD and had a look. It was a bit raw with a very youthful Nicholson, but I got more from it that I had expected.
Links that speak for themselves (a la "Uninteresting Stuff" thread)
are welcome, as are articulate responses like the above.

I have revisited my kinks (I meant links), and you probably guessed I
am approaching my 60s (my era)

That said, the best thing to do with music is to listen
to it rather than talk about it.

PS Or play it of course
