For no accountable reason this was running through my head all day. & yes, I know I'm really dating myself posting Phil Ochs' songs. But I've always liked his music since I very first heard it as a kid. Kind of hate the fact the guy used the Greatest Hits cover for the video, since that image was meant as a parody, & the song definitely is Phil Ochs at his full-on romantic S.O.B. best:

“Stardust” – Jazz on Nylon #8
Some music for your Thursday—& more Hoagy Carmichael at that. When it comes to the Carmichael canon of songs, so many of which have become standards at a deep level, almost like folk songs (approached in our time probably only by the Beatles), we must admit...

In reference to that last post: for those too young to remember Phil Ochs, who was lost to us at a tragically young age, he had many musical sides. This is a whole other side, from his great Live in Vancouver 1968 album:

“Time and Water”
Time and Water Time is like the water, and the water is cold and deep as my witness. And time is like a picture, which is painted by the water and me, but half-done. And time and water run un-channelled to exhaustion in my witness. Steinn Steinarr ("Tíminn ...

More in the way of remarkable cello videos, again related to one of my current novel editing projects (which also involves Icelandic poetry & a lovely instrument called the Langspil--what a fun project indeed!) Here is Icelandic cellist & composer Hildur Guðnadóttir, who makes some amazing & beautiful music indeed.
