wow! Our Izzie is on a roll tonight, y'all. Thanks, gal, for The Dancing Queen by ABBA. Love that palendromic group, and Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swaze is one of my favorites. (never think of Jennifer Grey without remembering Lord Ellpus). As Time Goes By is a real classic. "Here's looking at you, kid" I'll be dancing off to bed myself, shortly.

edgar, I did find this one by Rudy Vallee, and it may help you fit your lyrics to the same style. I like this song because it was one done during the Great Depression. Rudy's megaphone style made a big come back with songs like, Winchester Cathedral.

My goodnight song was inspired by our puppy.

To all of you, everywhere,

Tomorrow,

From Letty with love

I can't hear that song from Casablanca without thinking of this one. Don't know why. We'll Meet Again, by Vera Lynn.

Good morning, WA2K radio audience.

edgar, thanks for that song from The Great Caruso. Pavarotti, RIP, and although you are a marvelous tenor, Caruso was better as demonstrated in the two songs by Paul Robeson and Enrico Caruso.

Ah, Vera Lynn was the ultimate in WWII songs, Texas. Love "We'll meet again. I just discovered that she also did "Now is the Hour". That was a surprise.

Welcome back, Brit. Loved Corrine Bailey Rae, and the scenery behind her song was fantastic. I'm getting ready to put a record on in the next moment or two. The Ronettes, "Walking in the Rain", was good as well. Hope some of get to do that and soon. It is still dry here.

Today is Sharon Corr's birth, y'all, and she is fantastic.

Also, for the Lady Diane whose birthday is today, here's one from Peggy Lee to both the cowboy and the hummingbird.

Good morning. I particularly like the Sharon Corr video, letty. Peggy Lee, of course, has been a lifelong favorite of mine.

@Barry The Mod,
Wow! Brit, that Dame Shirley Bassey duo was fabulous. Love Lady is a Tramp. Sinatra did that one as well, and You Needed Me, was lovely. Thanks.

After listening to Sinead explain the Irish situation via talking music, I think we all understand. Thanks, buddy. (I'm certain that I can speak for edgar)

Speaking of potatoes, here's the song that I love, y'all.

Peggy Lee did a version of "the tramp", too.

Thanks, puppy, for the montage of notables and the info on others.

Well, well, R.H., seems as though you and I are on the same wave length. Strange, all I can recall by Steve is "Wanted Dead or Alive", and, of course, his strange alternative medicine application that didn't work.

You did a tribute by Sheryl, so here's one by Mark Collie.

edgar, I had no idea that David Carradine did the Wood Guthrie story. Loved that dust bowl memory. I think Steinbeck's last book was "Travels With Charlie". It seems that he knew he was dying then.

Huckleberry Hound is funnneeeee. Had forgotten that cartoon. Thanks for the smile, Texas.

Ah, Barry the Brit touched a nerve with our Izzie. Loved your Tina Turner song, gal. Never heard that one, however.

We cannot let the day fade away without a tribute to Harry Houdini. There's a cold case there, because many think he was murdered.

Opps, Izzie. Missed your Bonnie Tyler song. Back in a few to acknowledge.

@Izzie,
Ah, Izzie, "A Total Eclipse of the Heart". I like that better than the original title. We've all been there, methinks.

Well, folks, at least we weren't here.

Breaking news.

Komodo Dragon Mauls Indonesian Fisherman to Death
Atlanta, GA 3/24/2009 01:24 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

An Indonesian fisherman was killed Tuesday by Komodo dragons. Officials say Muhamad Anwar, 32, died after being mauled by several of the giant lizards.
He was attacked while searching for fruit at Loh Sriaya in Komodo National Park. “The fisherman was inside the park when he went looking for sugar-apples. The area was forbidden for people to enter as there are a lot of wild dragons,” says the park’s general manager Fransiskus Harum.
Other fisherman rushed Anwar to a nearby clinic on Flores Island. He was declared dead upon arrival.
Komodo dragons are the world’s heaviest lizards. They can grow to up to 10 feet and release poison when they attack. Attacks on humans are rare.
