Considering the fact that my parents are visiting right now, I am experiencing a slight wave of nostalgia while remembering my past.
In Czech republic, there is one artist that has been active in the spot light for over 50 years. His name is Karel Gott. His voice and enigmatic charisma with which he conveyed the multitude of beautiful melodies and lyrics created by other talented Czech writers and composers signifies and defines the music of my early childhood.
To me his name simply equals with my introduction to the world of music.
This Friday I will share with you the first song ever that had an impact on my life.
Or so I have been told.
I love music and I believe that my love for music was evident already when I was a baby. My parents claim, that at any time I was unhappy or crying as a toddler and they ran out of options or ideas on what to do to comfort me, they eventually almost always resolved to playing this particular song. As soon as the tunes of "Lady Karneval" were in the air, I was immediately quiet and even smiled.
I have to admit that even today this music still makes me want to dance. Please enjoy the below medley and the feel of 60's and 70's performances of this - to most of you - completely unknown, but unusually talented artist.
