Love is the basis of Philip Serino’s music. A love for music, a love for his audience, and a love for his family; all combine into his sound. With family at the foundation of music, he was a part of a musical community from a very young age. Growing up in a family of worship leaders, he was always surrounded by music and music lovers.

This Midnight Hour is an orchestral composition written by Anna Clyne. She has specifically provided a rich composition and doesn’t give the audience any hint towards the intention of the narrative. It’s intentional.
When it comes to the music of opera, the composer needs to be a bit of all the above, a dramatist, a writer, an artist, and not just a composer. Mozart was each of those and used those influences to blend power and emotion into his works.
With the work and talent of Micheal Stern the conductor, Bella Hristova the violin soloist, and the musicians of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, composers such as Anna Clyne, Tchaikovsky & Dvořák will never be forgotten.

Shifting to the pipe organ at the age of 12 has since been a consistent part of his life. This change from accordion to the organ was overall a benefit to both James’s career and his audience. Looking back, he admits that he probably wouldn’t have stayed with music and instead pursued another interest namely oil painting. Instead of Dennis James the oil painter, he is currently known internationally as a professional organist and a historic preservationist.

The purpose of the internet is to find new and amazing things, to connect people with ideas. I use the internet to find awesome covers and dig deeper to uncover them (Pun intended). Scrolling through Facebook, I found that Jackie Chan did a Cantonese cover of “I’ll make a man out of you” from Mulan (1998). I know that several celebrities will do cover songs but typically those are musicians specifically. It was interesting so I looked deeper.
In conclusion, it seemed that these specific cover versions are preferred over the originals. Yet, the reasons for this are extremely diverse. They range from an emotional response, vocal quality, to instrumental and arrangement. Thus, covers can be seen as better than the originals for a vast variety of reasons. However, this article provides the evidence of three songs and two corresponding covers. This doesn’t provide a full view of all songs or all covers. I think it does offer an interesting point that cover songs are legitimate as a musical form. It also highlights that everyone has their own subjective tastes in music.
The simple answer to the long story is that I started a blog about covers and parodies because I wanted to share them with people. I want to write about songs that are unique because they aren’t the original.
