Eric Carmen Does Rachmaninoff--Twice

While working through Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2, third movement in orchestra practice, I couldn't help thinking the theme sounded familiar.

And it is! In 1976, Eric Carmen released a song called Never Gonna Fall in Love Again. It has its own Wikipedia entry. The ballad went to number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100.

What I really didn't realize was that Carmen's big hit the year before, All by Myself, also was based on Rachmaninoff--the Piano Concerto No. 2! Well, it certainly makes sense to have good source material.

Does the Rachmaninoff estate get any royalties?

I have been browsing online more than three hours
as of late, but I by no means found any
attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me.
Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably
did, the internet will likely be a lot more helpful than ever before.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Thank you!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several

Appreciate it!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
