Could It Be Magic - Need To Practise Now

I have a request from a friend, Shah Cakapaje to play this very nice song by Barry Manilow, 'Could it be Magic'. Sounds magical indeed. Actually I am not too familiar with this number, but I believe I've heard it before.

So with the wonderful current technology, I googled youtube and will try to learn from some of those pro pianist, and even from Barry Manilow himself. In this video, Manilow must've been very young! First time I see his 'youngish' look! Hahaha...

He also mentioned that he used Chopin's Predule in C Minor for intro of this song. There's an Alex playing in the next video.

So, depending on how fast I learn up, will determine whether the Chopin's Prelude will be in my play or not, about a week from now. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock .... gotta practise now! Cheers!

Hai Ydiana,
Well it's Barry Magic but I will wait for your Magic next week right.

Have fun with the piano.

Salam ydiana,

Hmm...that's the spirit! Weave on your magical fingers, and entertain our souls with it :)

ps. Don't try Barry's disco version of that same number. Play it nice and slow.

I always have fun at the piano! I just wish there's a magical wand that can make me play instantly...hahaha!

Hey Shah

No least not anymore. Without the Chopin's prelude, 70% done. Prelude alone is only about 20%. So, we'll see.

The first video has been taken down by youtube due to a copyright clain. The Chopin's still there though. It brings back great memories for me.... will have to get it aout and dust it off again.

BTW. Love the layout of your blog.

Hi Piano
