As follow-up to a Saturday Special from a couple of weeks ago, here’s a Benjamin Zander video from last year’s TED Conference (thanks VJ for the suggestion). In it, he shares a Chopin prelude (Op. 28: Prelude No. 4 in E Minor) as a way to open ourselves to an appreciation of classical music and its emotional possibilities.

A quick personal note about this portion of his presentation: at the 2001 Transformation Conference I produced, my wife was sitting in the front row for Zander’s performance since she’d heard me talk so much about him. As he came down off stage at the prelude’s conclusion, he went right toward Cyndi and kissed her on the head. With the emotion of the moment and the conference near its completion, I started crying, figuring Cyndi must have been doing the same to prompt Zander to approach her.

Asking her about it later, she told me, “No, I wasn’t crying. I shouted, ‘Bravo!'” Zander IS, after all, a showman. I just teared up thinking back on the story, so here’s an important safety tip: have a Kleenex handy before you start watching!

It’s Super Bowl Monday. Despite minimal interest in the game, I watched much of it, primarily to see the commercials and Bruce Springsteen.

Since the commercials will be a hot topic of conversation at work today (although probably not as hot as the game), let me point you toward two experts (Steve Yastrow and good friend Sally Hogshead) who Tweeted about the ads live during the game last night. Their conversation is online at Tom Peters’ website, so be sure to check it out.

While you’re at it, check out Sally on the Sunday morning Today Show talking about the best Super Bowl ads of all time.

As for me, my favorites were:

Not a great year for commercials, but the football game (and Bruce telling us to get away from the guacamole dip & chicken fingers) more than made up for it!
