Victor Borge – Clair de Lune

Obviously not a song I sing to my kids, but one I'll often play as they're drifting off to sleep. It has become one of my favorite pieces, and I think this performance nails it (minus the coughing audience members). Right about 2 minutes in, when it almost seems like the song could be winding up, but then it shifts into an other-world quality... perfectly dream-like. I haven't stopped being wowed by that, despite hearing the song probably a hundred times.

  1. Borge is probably better known for his humor, but much of his humor was dependent on being the excellent musician that he was. Thanks for sharing this one.

    1. I'll confess to knowing the name, but not much about the guy. I honestly picked this one because the sound quality was significantly higher than most of the other live performance I found in my quick search.

        1. I kept flashing back to commercials I'd seen on TV back in the day. I'm pretty sure I watched one of those half hour Time Life-like infomercials for one of his albums when I was 7 or 8.
