edgar, you sent me searching again.

Vincent Eugene Craddock (February 11, 1935 – October 12, 1971), known as Gene Vincent, was an American musician who pioneered the styles of rock and roll and rockabilly. His 1956 top ten hit with his Blue Caps, "Be-Bop-A-Lula", is considered a significant early example of rockabilly. He is a member of the Rock and Roll and Rockabilly Halls of Fame.

Great Bop one by him, Texas, and thanks for your comments.

Funny one by The Muppets, Brit.

UhOh! The groundhog saw his shadow yesterday. Six more weeks of winter.

Anyone remember Norman Rockwell? today is his birthday.

Norman Rockwell is a favorite with me, letty.
Although the groundhog saw his shadow, here in Houston, we have a longhorn steer that we watch on Feb 2. He predicted early spring for our part of the country.

@edgarblythe,
Thanks for your comments, edgar. Ah, The Jackson Five. What talent they possessed. hbg, you are one lucky canuck. Bet you know my goodnight song.

Don't remember Blame it on the Booglie, but was surprised that they did rockin' robin.

Time for me to say goodnight, and I think that I shall do so with an oldie but goodie.

So many performers did that one. Here are the lyrics.

Red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me
He sailed at the dawning, all day I've been blue
Red sails in the sunset, I'm trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And he goes sailing no more

Red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me

Oops, the hamsters wouldn't let me edit, so I'll say it here.

So nice to have London, Scotland, Canada, and Dublin with us today.

From Letty with love to the world

Morning, all. edgar, that was Willie Nelson? Who would have guessed. Great medley by him and I knew them all.

Missed hbg's Carmen Miranda so I had to go searching again.

Carmen Miranda, GCIH (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈkaɾmẽȷ̃ miˈɾɐ̃dɐ] 9 February 1909 – 5 August 1955) was a Portuguese-born Brazilian samba singer, Broadway actress and Hollywood film star popular in the 1940s and 1950s. She was, by some accounts, the highest-earning woman in the United States and noted for her signature fruit hat outfit she wore in the 1943 movie The Gang's All Here. Though hailed as a talented performer, her movie roles in the United States soon became cartoonish and she grew to resent them. She is considered the precursor of Brazil's Tropicalismo.

Thanks for the memory, Canada.

Odd, TCM had Sabu on last evening. Great oldie and they had to use Indian elephants and paste on the African ears. I guess that's because they were less aggressive.

Here's the song that I was searching for.

Strangers on the Shore is a beauty, letty. Here is Jerry Lee Lewis with a George Jones song. Note that he plays an organ on this one.

@Letty,
Hi Miss Letty, Ed & all WA2K pop pickers.

I remember Carmen Miranda, in truth mostly for her fruit hat. Stranger On The Shore , real nice tune to start the day with Miss Letty. Is that really Willie Nelson? Ed. It is amazing the difference a scissors & a razor can make. Those poor elephants, they must have sat in makeup for hours. Seasons Of My Heart is a real good tune Ed, another good tune to start a day with.

Thin Lizzy.

@eurocelticyankee,
Willie always looked like that, until he no longer did. I guess the outlaw image is what changed him. The wikipedia article does not seem 100% factual, about Willie's early recording history. I heard his record on the radio of Funny How Time Slips Away, when I was a teen in California. We moved to Texas in Dec of 1957. He had to have been recording before 1960.

I like the Thin Lizzy song.

Love that one by Jerry Lee, edgar. Had no idea he played the organ, too.

Welcome back, euro George. Great one by Thin Lizzie. Miss Lonely Hearts reminded me of None but the Lonely Hearts. Well, we won't go that route. Let's just say they are a great group.

Thanks for your's and edgar's comments. Funny remark about those elephant ears. Gave me a smile.

Today is this guys birthday, but first some info.

Gazzara was born Biagio Anthony Gazzarra in New York City, the son of Italian immigrants Angelina (née Cusumano) and Antonio Gazzarra, who was a laborer and carpenter. Gazzara grew up on New York's tough Lower East Side; he lived on East 29th Street and participated in the drama program at Madison Square Boys and Girls Club located across the street. He later attended New York City's Stuyvesant High School. Years later, he said that the discovery of his love for acting saved him from a life of crime during his teen years. He went to City College of New York to study electrical engineering. After two years, he relented. He took classes in acting at the Dramatic Workshop of The New School in New York with the influential German director Erwin Piscator and afterward joined the Actors Studio.

He died recently.

I can't recall him, however.

You have a great sense of humor, Irish. "...going through the change..." was funny

@eurocelticyankee,

In 2001 a bench was placed at the southern entrance of London's Soho Square as a memorial to her after a text from one of her most poignant songs: "One day I'll be waiting there / No empty bench in Soho Square.

Love this song about Mexico
