Covers, etc. - Wedding Songs - Also, Rar vs. Zip files
I should explain that title, 'Covers, etc.'. It's a label I used to use on tapes that I would compile. It was something of a misnomer for most of the tracks though. It was an umbrella title I used for interesting covers, related songs, songs that reminded me of other songs, elegant plagiarisms, etc. Anything that fell into those categories that didn't easily fit into other compilations I would put on a series of tapes that I called 'Covers, etc.' Most of the songs ended up not being covers, but I still think of that way, so that has carried over to here.
Since this is wedding season for a lot of people, I thought I'd put up some wedding songs. You could literally fill dozens of volumes with wedding songs, but here are just a few for your listening pleasure:
1) Bernadette Peters, David Christmas, & Company - 'Let's Have A Simple Wedding' from 'Dames At Sea'
2) Lloyd Price - Where Were You (On Our Wedding Day)? (1959)
3) Chorus - 'What A Lovely Day For A Wedding' from 'Royal Wedding'
4) Orch. & Chorus & Cast (Fred Astaire, Jane Powell, Keenan Wynn, Peter Lawford, & Sarah Churchill) - 'Finale- The Royal Wedding Day' from 'Royal Wedding'
5) Ruth Brown & Clyde McPhatter - Love Has Joined Us Together (1955)

Originally, I was thinking of putting up different songs but when I went to look for them, I realized they weren't there. A lot of the best material in my music collection is in storage in another town and is essentially inaccessible for the long, indefinite and forseeable future, so I'm not able to retrieve it (unless I find other copies somewhere else). So, from time to time, I may ask people for copies of things I already have (which really kind of galls me), but so be it. And, I hope you'll forgive the occasional lack of grade-A material and indulge me in the occasional request for material. Thanks.
Also, starting with this entry I've decided to change the files from rar to zip (except for any rapidshare files that are over 100 Mb that have to be split - those will still be rar). Rar files have all sorts of advantages over zip files: better compression, ability to create split archives, recovery records, being able to lock records, and virtually unlimited size restrictions on files. But since some people can't open rar files and because I realized that with the exception of the split archives I don't really need the other advantages for these files, I decided to switch over to zip files. Originally, I was going to put recovery records on the files so they might be able to be reconstructed if they got damaged, so that's one reason I started using rar files, but I ultimately decided against it. I realized that if a file got damaged, people could just re-download them, so it just made the whole thing academic. Also, it wasn't worth the extra time it took for the software to create the recovery records and the extra size of the files when they weren't really needed. It's still a great feature to have, but doesn't make much sense for blog downloads.
If anybody wants me to change over the old rar files to zip on any of the previous entries, let me know.
