I think these last two entries have been great. While watching the Oympics and hearing our national anthem, I have wondered about some of the gutsy moves taken in the harmonization and orchestration of The Star Spangled Banner (oh I hope I didn't spell that wrong!). I also think this latest link is great for many reasons. 1 is that it is so informative and lets me know what is going on, and 2 I feel that it takes away from the Classical Music-Academic monopoly and shows that academic units such as the library can also see the value of popular music.
