Remain Calm

I don't want to alarm you, but felt you ought to know that Ferrante & Teicher once recorded a scintillating two-piano rendition of Macarthur Park that will leave you wanting to leave more than just a cake out in the rain, if you know what I mean, and it's available from iTunes and LimeWire, just to name a couple of otherwise mostly legitimate online services.

Yeah, I don't think I'll be sleeping tonight either.

If you leave your e-mail address, I will send it to you. It is absolutely great and they made two versions, which I have both of. One with full orchestra. One with just two pianos, recorded many years later. Also, check out their website (

I sent Billy the one I have (the orchestral version). I could have sworn it was on iTunes...

I'm new to Ferrante & Teicher, so only now came across this performance of African Echoes on YouTube.

That's absolutely crazy!!! Are you sure it's legal?
