I watched the Steve McQueen tributes. Good. But, here is a song I always associate with him.
Houdini - anybody watch the Tony Curtis "bio" film? Not too outstanding.
Bonnie Tyler - always worth a listen.

The Rudy Vallee video was enjoyable. Not quite what I was thinking with my lyric, though.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, your tribute to Steve was far better. Love that rain song by Glenn Yarbrough.

I think I saw that movie with Tony Curtis, but all I can recall is the part where Houdini is under an ice covered river in some contraption from which he escapes, but cannot find the hole that he cut previously in the ice. He was about to give up when he heard his mother's voice directing him to the spot. It seemed to me that she had died and he wasn't aware of it.

More later about Rudy Vallee and "Deep Night".

Did find that the movie about Houdini had a fantastic soundtrack. Here is a great one, folks.

Rather good for a high school group

High school musicians are surprisingly good.
This video is Johnny Carson interviewing a man who speaks backwards.

@edgarblythe,
Funny, edgar. What some folks won't do to be different.

Remember when the word got around that the Beatles were sending hidden messages through backmasking? The most notale one was..."...Paul is dead..."

Then one is funny, too.

Messages playing songs backwards. I guess some folks don't have much to do with their time.

@edgarblythe,
Publicity, edgar, publicity.

Hey, folks, let's go back in time a bit and listen to Ricky's advice.

That for me is Ricky's best song, letty. Now, I have something that is novel and interesting and I don't speak the language, but ohwell.

@edgarblythe,
That was great, edgar, and obviously done in French. I loved the way Valaine super imposed the albums of musicians, etc, over other faces.

Here's a vocalist that I have become familiar with only recently, y'all, and he is really good. Let's listen.

Richie Valens did not have time to record a large body of work, but he had some good ones.

@edgarblythe,
Ah, dear Richie. So many good musicians are taken too soon, edgar.

Well, it's time for me to say goodnight, and this was a song from The Bridges of Madison County. I don't know this performer, but he does it well.

Goodnight world,

From Letty with love

Here is Jerry Lee Lewis doing Mona Lisa. At one point he says, "Think about it, Nat." He is fooling round.

@edgarblythe,
Good morning WA2K and edgar. That song by Jerry Lee was done in a moment when he was in his cups, methinks, but it was funny. Nice way to wake up, Texas.

Today is Bela Bartok's birthday, so let's hear one from Romania. Then we shall follow with an interesting one by Sir Elton who was born on this day.

Hey, edgar. Love Brook, and it is just a matter of time. Love the man, and thanks. Bet Izzie knows about squinney. Hmmm, wonder if squinney is the one who kept the bear up all night. Razz

Hey, Brit. Never heard Gilliano, but when I was a kid I used to wonder what a "joyful noise" was. Does seem like an oxymoron. Thanks for that one, buddy.

Of course, we all know Aretha, queen of soul, and that one was great. Thanks again.

Love this one, y'all, and we can learn from listening, right?

and the lyrics in English

English Words by Norman Gimbel and Music by Michel Legrand


If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you're back beside me, till I'm holding you
Till I hear you sigh here in my arms

Anywhere you wander, anywhere you go
Every day remember how I love you so
In your heart believe what in my heart I know
That forevermore I'll wait for you

The clock will tick away the hours one by one
Then the time will come when all the waiting's done
The time when you return and find me here and run
Straight to my waiting arms

If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you're here beside me, till I'm touching you
And forevermore sharing your love
Letty

@Izzie,
Oops, Speak her name and up she appears. Hey, Izzie. Love Candle in the Wind. I think Sir Elton not only did that for "Norma Jean", but the princess as well. Thanks for the reminder.
