@edgarblythe,
I'm with you, edgar. I know that song but can't recall who did it originally. Well, perhaps all of us here belong to that mutual admiration society. Frankly, I like your version by Eddie and Jaye P.

Thinking of Carlos Santana this evening. Fabulous guitarist, folks. Let's listen, shall we?

Santana is one of the great guitarists. Now, Hank Snow is here to tell of an unfortunate incident on an airplane flight.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, as you know, I love Hank Snow "The Singing Ranger". He's been everywhere, right? That one was hilarious, Texas. Thanks for the smile this evening. Hi Jack? Love it!

Well, it's time for me to say goodnight, and although I've done this one before, I am so delighted to have discovered it, that I think I shall replay it.

edgar, you know it, of course.

Tomorrow, all

From Letty with love

This song is taken from a movie. The first half is presented with the beginning credits. The second half comes at the very end.

@edgarblythe,
Good morning, edgar and WA2K.

That song by Marty Robbins from The Hanging Tree sent me to the archives, Texas, and I checked out the Isley Brothers and was surprised at all the great songs they had done. Amazing that they did Dylan's Lay Lady Lay. Thanks.

I was surprised also to find an interesting factor in Cooper's life was his friendship with Ernest Hemingway. I recall something about Cooper, when he knew he was dying, saying to Hemingway, "I'll get to the barn before you."

All of this info lead me to remember Errol Garner's great jazz song, Will You Still be Mine. It seems that there were funny lyrics(couldn't find 'em) saying, "when Gary Cooper's teeth don't stick"

So here is Errol and the lyrics will follow.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ7_bXq-Yq8

When lovers make no rendez-vous
To stroll along Fifth Avenue;
When this familiar world is through,
Will you still be mine?

When cabs don't drive around the park;
No windows light the summer dark;
When love has lost its secret spark,
Will you still be mine?

When moonlight on the Hudson's not romancy,
And spring no longer turns a young man's fancy

When glamour girls have lost their charms;
Sirens just mean false alarms;
When lovers heed no call to arms,
Will you still be mine?

When Julie Christie doesn't make me tingle;
When I can't sing in tune
Or make - a - single

When glamour girls have lost their charms
Sirens, they just mean false alarms;
When lovers heed no call to arms,
Will you still be mine?

Will you stil - will you still be mine?
Will you still be mine?
Will you still be mine?
Will you still - be - mine?

I love Earl. I don't generally think of his songs as having lyrics.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, I never hear Tina that I don't think of Proud Mary. Thanks for that one, Texas. 'Course we all know Santana.

Today is Chaka Khan's birthday, and this one was a combination of Prince and this great gal.

Since it was at a jazz festival on Mt. Fuji, we'll dedicate this one to satt fs. Where did he go?

@Raggedyaggie,
There's our puppy back with her marvelous quintet of famous folks and added info on others.

My goodness, PA, what a delightful surprise to hear One Alone from The Desert Song. Don't know Georgio Tozzi, but I just found out that he and Jan Peerce did Serenade as well.

Thanks again, Raggedy.

Here's another that I can't recall, y'all, but he is a birthday boy and a marvelous performer.

A bit of sad news, however. Nicholas Huges, son of Sylvia Plath, has taken his own life. So tragic!

You talking to yourself again, Letty? Well, perhaps Nat can help.

Here are some lyrics I have been tinkering with

White Chocolate, Blue Roses

White chocolate, blue roses, and sad melodies
Dancing alone, drinking sweet wine, sleeping - not yet
White chocolate, blue roses, and bad memories
Texting your phone, dreaming you’re mine, weeping - that’s next

I’ll toast the moon I’ll wink at the stars through my tears
Holding the dark close in my arms, waltzing - with you
Feeling your charms through imagining my dear
Was that the telephone that I heard, Oh please - but boo hoo

White chocolate, blue roses, and sad melodies
Calling your name, into the night, sleeping - not yet
White chocolate, blue roses, and bad memories
Texting your phone, dreaming you’re mine, weeping - oh yes


Letty

@edgarblythe,
edgar, have you a melody in mind for your White Chocolate, Blue Roses? Great so far, Texas.

Loved the Keely, Louis, and Frank song, incidentally. She's still performing, I see.

Keely Smith (born Dorothy Jacqueline Keely, 9 March 1932, in Norfolk, Virginia, of part Cherokee and Irish descent) is an American jazz and popular music singer who enjoyed great popularity in the 1950s and 1960s. Her collaborations with Louis Prima and Frank Sinatra were highly rated. Smith was much admired for her singing style, and for her duets with Louis Prima. In recent years, Smith resumed her career to critical acclaim.

Thanks for keeping us on the air, buddy.

Here's another one by that dead pan lady.

I have in mind a sound that harkens to the days of Rudy Vallee, letty. Unfortunately, I cannot sing a note and have no knowledge of music.
