On You Tube, I came across the Eurovision Song Contest with the interval when Riverdance was performed for the first time. I remember being transfixed and at the end it was
just WOW. It was absolutely brilliant and stole the whole show. The rest is history, as they say.
I got to thinking about other things I had seen and I had the same reaction. The next one was Torville and Dean skating to Bolero at the
Sarejevo Olympics and I got up in the early hours to watch it.
Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent was another.
Watching Adele's video singing Hello, her first song for a few years and could only be heard for the first time in that video. For any younger people, this is how we heard music. No preview and the song
was only heard on the day it was released to the record shop.
