Yep, the one from the advertisement. The effort put in music for ads back then is probably more than the effort given for ‘regular’ songs nowadays.
Yet another one of my favorite songs by Ziad.
I know it’s not a perfect take with some mistakes but it’s generally a nice one so I thought I’d share it.
Inspired by the version from his album Live at the Acropolis.
This piece was very inspirational to me, one of the first songs to play on piano instead of keyboard.
The new Bond movie Skyfall is coming in a few weeks; I thought I’d record this track.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjJ7d_LX7TU&w=550]
I played and recorded as a special request by firstname.lastname@example.org
“Concerning Hobbits” from the soundtrack of “The Fellowship Of The Ring”
The use of Irish tin whistle, and fiddle in the original recording for the main melody gives the track a Celtic feel.
The tin whistle is somewhat similar to the Nay in our culture.
You may notice the extensive use of ghost notes while I play the melody; as an attempt to imitate the dynamics created by the instruments used in the original recording.
I decided to end in the main theme of LOTR. It just felt right.
Another Match found:
Song by Salma Mosfi by Ziad Rahbani from Monodose; مش بس تلفنلي
And the original track, a popular Bossa Nova song that goes under the name of So Danco Samba
It’s worth noting that there are numerous covers for this song.
The all famous Nokia theme is based on a classic guitar piece.
The piece is called Gran Vals, by Francisco Tarrega, a Spanish guitar player and composer from the Romantic period.

I was curious about the singer of “Oh sometimes I get a good feeling”, thought maybe there’s an original song.
Turn’s out it’s true, her name is Etta James, gospel genre song from the 60’s.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmexOmLyuVU&w=550]
