Bobby McFerrin and "Close Encounters"

This video of Bobby McFerrin reminded me of the scene in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" where Lacombe is coaching the UFO working group to converse in sign language . . .

Oh, that was fun! I found myself singing along as he was doing it.

What I found interesting is how it all fell apart temporarily when he hit the two "notes" at the same time, and the audience couldn't figure out which one to sing.

Great video, Mac! :o)

LLC is a little off topic....

@Katie

I liked that moment as well. Neat video. I like the idea that the musical scale is "hardwired" into even the most unmusical among us, which would be me!

@Tristan

"Off topic" indeed. I just took the liberty of deleting it.

Thanks for the nice post. Do you know.. How To Be More Confident A number of men need tips and advice on how to be more confident with women. Women adore confident men who believe in their own abilities and themselves. Kama Lifestyles dating coaching specialises in teaching men how to be confident.It doesn’t depend on personal traits and characteristics, but can be learned by anyone. It does, however, take some work to turn negative thoughts and behaviours into something positive, and no one can do the work but the man who needs to change his attitude.
