Yiri Yiri Bom – covers and Gnonnas Pedro

I live in Benin, where the famous singer Gnonnas Pedro lived. He made his version of this song quite famous, by delivering a great cover of it (see end of post).
Disclaimer: I tried to launch a local Tribute Band with one of his sons, Gilles Gnonnas, a few years ago…

This song was composed by Silvestre Méndez (1926-1997)

The Doors – The End

J’ai vu Apocalypse Now plusieurs fois, depuis sa sortie en 1979, mais mon meilleur souvenir de visionnage reste celui où, en matinée, seul dans le plus grand cinéma des Champs Elysées à Paris, j’ai pu me placer au centre de la salle, dans un grand fauteuil (en cuir ?) et bénéficier d’une acoustique absolument exceptionnelle… Un grand moment !

Probablement l’une des intros de film les plus incroyables qui soit !

The Doors recorded a nearly 12-minute version for their self-titled debut album
