Off the beaten track: Musical rendezvous

Yesterday, after a long time, I had time to visit youtube and watch recordings of my favourite soft rock singers.  

It was nice to watch The Beatles singing "Michelle", the lyrics of which came to my help when I was learning French at the Alliance Francais, Gaborone.

I think that songs by singers such as Mark Knopfler are a musical treat at times. When it comes to music, I remember my good friend and colleague Ulrich Klaussen. He was an accomplished violinist. He and I used to share Physics teaching workload at the school in which we taught.
