All of the boys sing well and Mark does have a wonderful voice, it's true. However, the songs Paul sang on Friday really suited his voice and he sang them beautifully. It really sent shivers down my spine.





I second that Michelle Wink When Paul started to sing on Friday evening accompanied by a live orchestra I just turned to *MUSH* Razz

It is so cool when someone's singing makes you shiver. I'd love to hear Paul sing like that sometime. Smile

Glad to hear you are feeling better Michelle and also glad that you both were able to attend the event.

Oh, I like many of the silent movies. I try to watch TCM's Silent Sundays at midnight when they show silent movies. They were free to move the camera around in the most bizarre and innovative ways -- without being hindered by the audio equip--(plugs and whatnot), they did some amazing cinematic things (way before CGI) when you see some of these films.

Paul sang a version of Limelight? Oh, wow. I have a recording of the song without words (Frank Chacksfield and his Orchestra recording) I soooooo love the movie very, very much and the song as well. The word is bittersweet.

Limelight (1952)

If anyone has a recording of Paul singing these tunes--especially Limelight, I'd love to get a copy of it.

*Sigggghhhh*

Paul's voice gives me shivers anyway and I can't begin to imagine what him singing would do! Embarassed

I love silent films and I've bought a ton of them for the library here (to edumacate the public, ya know!) and I would dearly love to share the experience of someone who really gets into them as well (especially Paul! - woot!). One of these days, one of these days...

And to have a "chat" with him too! That is truly my heart's desire! A nice long talk with him about the Great War, horses, films, books - everything! If we could only get him to a con here (and Baltimore is so close to me!), Michelle you could accompany him as his PR lady!

It's a done deal! He's allowed to come visit as long as I get to do the PR stuff - fair's fair! Then I know you lot will let him come home Wink

Fair enough, Michelle. Honestly? You'd love Shore Leave, too! Very Happy

You mean you'd actually trust us to turn him loose again? I had all these plans for taking his passport, tying him up (*thud*), and forcing him to attend the races with me! Bwahahahaha!

Oh, and you'd have fun too! Laughing

Gee, I was just thinking if there is a silent film festival in the States, perhaps Paul would be interested in attending.
