    #BEEP week and Twenty Nights

    Okay, I ordered the Twenty Nights CD (Dan Ponce & Mike Itkoff) off cdbaby.com and it came in the mail today.  I have only made it through a few songs and I am completely and utterly blown away.  I know a lot of us have musical backgrounds to include an appreciation for classical music.  I just want to say that the last track on the album, "Moonlight," is one of the most gorgeous, haunting songs I've ever heard.  The underlying theme of the song is Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata with Dan singing lead (and playing the piano, I'm assuming).  Oh my heavens.  I can't even describe how awesome it is.  I know we all wish Dan and Mike the best in their future careers, but for the sake of us all I hope they never get completely away from the music business.  They are just too talented.

    So here's to the guys since it's "their" week:  BEEP!!!

I'll take it! The lesson, I mean. And *possibly* the photo. ;-)

*snork* Yeah, like we're going to allow that one! Guess what, S? You're so lucky! You're going to get a free lesson on how to upload photos! ;o)

Kristin, I could, but...um....I don't know how to upload photos. :-X

S., when you get your BEEP-tastic autographed copy of this stellar CD would you take a picture of it so we jealous contest-losers can see it??? :)

Waiting eagerly.... :-)

Moonlight is truly gorgeous and has everything musically a song should have. My first listen through of the CD I had to play it a couple of times in a row because I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. Achingly haunting. Is there any video anywhere of them performing/rehearsing/recording any of this music?

So glad you love the CD, Kristin!

It's good stuff. I can't get enough of it. This past week was stressful, and I had this CD on heavy rotation every day.

I love all the tracks, but there is something about Moonlight that keeps me coming back to it again and again. I love its classical roots. I love the haunting lyrics. And I love the soulful vocals. And Dan and Mike do trade off singing lead. It's got everything.

And I agree. They are so talented I would love for them to do another album. Both have said it remains a possibility. Mike said, "Never say never."

I highly recommend you get it! :)

Thanks so much for this info! I just might have to pick up this CD!

I've made it through the CD after having to stop and listen to several of the songs over and over. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. Even if I wasn't already familiar with Dan and Mike I would still think it was awesome. This music just makes me happy. I wonder if these guys (and SNC) really understand how happy their music makes people???

I'm going to attempt to listen to the entire CD on my to and from work today. Since Moonlight is the last song, I may actually make it all the way through!

Kristin, if this were facebook, I'd "like" that comment. lol :-)

I haven't even listened to the entire CD yet. I've gone back and played Moonlight about four times in a row. Just can't get over how gorgeous it is. Dottie if you don't win the CD I'll buy you one. Seriously, you have to own it.

I don't have this CD yet, but I really want to get it! Maybe I'll win it! *fingers crossed*

I totally ? Moonlight! Seriously, it's one of the best songs that I've ever heard.
