Those of you who know me well know that I never shut up about Harry Manx. There are several reasons for that first and foremost being the music. I found Harry’s music during the Wise And Otherwise tour at a folk festival in Ottawa, Canada. It was an amazing day, a warm and breezy summer evening in August 2002.  I was walking into the stage area from the parking lot and there was this hush over the crowd. There had to be at least three or four thousand people there but I swear I could hear a pin drop. As I stepped into the opening of the gate Harry Manx was playing “Crazy Love” just at the intro. I was indeed speechless. I’m not saying the guys Bach or anything – it’s just one of those things. His music was speaking to me. I sat down and listened there in awe of the music, the evening and one of life’s little moment’s.

wiseThere is no way I can recreate that experience for you here today. I can suggest that if you ever get a chance to see Harry Manx that you don’t miss it.  You can listen to Crazy Love below. I have also included a little video that will give you some further insight into Harry Manx as well as some more music.


Harry plays an instrument called a Mohan Veena which is a 20 string modified guitar invented by Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. I have also seen him play an assortment of other guitars and banjoes all exceptionally well.

Crazy Love is a Life of Tunes keeper that holds a special place in my musical journey.


You are the benefit this morning of another tune that woke me up. “Cuando Los Angeles Lloran by Maná comes from my morning alarm clock CD and quietly woke me up this morning. This is a band that I really came to appreciate through family members of mine living down in Mexico. This track is from the album Maná TV Unplugged in 1999.  I have loved many CD’s actually from the MTV Unplugged series.

Cuando Los Angeles Lloran is a song that I immediately loved off this CD and as is the case with most music of another language I don’t have a clue what the lyrics talk about. This to me is a real testament to the gift of Music. It can draw you and help you relate to other cultures across the world without a word spoken.

mana unpThe MTV Unplugged CD is fantastic as a whole. I just love to listen to this CD in the car while on a road trip, I can’t explain why. Watch the video below off the Maná TV Unplugged DVD to get a taste for the talent of this amazing band, and then pick up this CD or DVD.

Cuando Los Angeles Lloran by Maná is most certainly a Life of Tunes keeper and it deserves your attention.

Artist: Maná
Album: MTV Unplugged (1999)
Track: Cuando Los Angeles Lloran
