Topic of the Day...

One man's "bubble gum" is another man's "Muzak"... or something like that.

I used to listen to "pop radio" a lot when "pop" music still existed - depending upon how you define "pop".  So... In no particular order...

"Hey, Mickey" - Tony Basil
"Cherish" - Madonna
"We Got The Beat" - The Go-Gos
"9 to 5"- Dolly Parton
"(9 to 5) Morning Train" - Sheena Easton
"You Should Hear How She Talks About You" - Melissa Manchester (Thank You, DR FJL, for the assist on this one.)
"Forever Your Girl" - Paula Abdul
"1, 2, 3" - Gloria Estafan
"Walk Like an Egyptian" - The Bangles
"Our House" - Madness (Talking Heads)
"Jesse's Girl" - Rick Springfield
"Never Gonna Give You Up" - Rick Astley
"Safety Dance" - Men Without Hats
"Soldier of Love" - Donny Osmond - I remember when this song first came out, the video received a lot of play in the gay bars in DC. ;)
"Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" - Wham!

Etc., etc., etc...

THE SWAY

-That could be a dance.

Hi Ben!  Hi Jose!

I hope everyone had a better nights sleep then I did.  I was tired when I signed off last night but I guess I was so wired from the day that once I laid down I couldn't sleep a wink.  

I guess I should have gotten back up and posted some more.

Lovely pictures, DearReaderLaura.  I'm looking forward to see some more.

How lovely that DR Jane popped in for a vist!  So hard to believe we will meet face to face in just a little while.   :D

I'm not sure about bubblegum songs either but judging from the lists of them I've seen so far, I guess I like it because I know many of them.

Good morning!

Not an especially cool morning here, but I did go for my walk and am glad I did.

When I first woke up this morning, I was thinking it was Sunday and that I needed to get up momentarily to get ready to go grocery shopping. After dozing off, I woke up suddenly to realize that it was Saturday and not SUnday, so I feel like I've gained a day. And I did this without doing anything with the International Dateline!

I turned my designs in yesterday.  I don't know when or if I will hear back about them.  We'll see.  

VixMom I did see your post asking about them.  If one of them gets picked, I'll post it.  I'm always very shy about things I do.
I'm looking forward to our day in the park.

Has there everf been a bubblegum musical?

CHARLIE BROWN?

SNOOPY!?

IT'S A BIRD! IT'S A PLANE! IT'S SUPERMAN!?

I recognize many of the songs listed by others this morning, but I can't say that I was a fan of any of them enough to call them a favorite.

I don't often just take a drive in the car. However, if there is no musical I especially want to listen to, I will grab LEROY ANDERSON'S GREATEST HITS and the Best of DEBUSSY for a lengthy car trip. Love that music!

Since I only watched the first half of BEN-HUR yesterday, when the new set comes next week, I will probably start with the second half.

The score for this movie is one of the greats! But what a terrible deicision in 1959 to decide the Best Score Oscar between this, THE NUN'S STORY, and THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK. (ON THE BEACH and PILLOW TALK were also nominated.) Can you believe ANATOMY OF A MURDER wasn't?

Well, ye olde grocery shopping looms.  I also have to get some ear wash for my dogs.  Just in case anyone out there was worried that I didn't keep them clean.  ;)

Sigh.  Just think how much money we could save if we just didn't have to eat.  Bad habit that.  Eating.  If I just didn't enjoy it so much!  :)

Nice to read DR Jane's diary from Europe. Glad she is doing OK. With the world in such turmoil, international traveling just doesn't appeal to me now.

Back healing vibes to MS!!

For the second week in a row, I think I know the trivia answer right off the bat.  I'm scaring myself.  ;)

TOD:  Well longtimers here know I'm a pushover for anything Brasilian.  Great driving music!  In fact, I got a great new shipment of Brasilian imports yesterday and have been listening nonstop to Quarteto em Cy, the Tamba Trio, and Joao Donato, among others.  This morning I listened to a fabulous new Michel Legrand recording, an hommage to the fabulous Brasilian pianist that I've mentioned here before, Luiz Eca, quite possibly the most incredibly technically proficient jazz pianist of all time (including Tatum, I might add).  Now I'm listening to the Japanese carioca (yes, Brasil is huge in Japan, don't ask me why) Lisa Ono, on her new album with the kids and grandkids of Jobim.  So I guess I need to do this all in a car to make it relevant.   ;D

Saturday greetings!  I'm enjoying a commitment-free 3-day weekend, which I started by sleeping until after 9am EDT (late, for me).

It's a Michigan Wolverine football day, so I must go catch the first half on CBS.  Back at halftime - Go Blue!

For long drives I usually like something peppy. I have some Bollywood compilations that I made as well as some Arabian pop hits, which I enjoy listening to in the car. Also The Carpenters, or my compilations of 70s pop songs or Country oldies.

Lovely photos DRLAURA and yes we must hear about the trip to Vegas...although what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, they say.

Last week on BRAVO they showed the Bally's Cirque or sumpin like dat....it was pretty amazing.  But I liked the funny stuff best!

Congratulations to MR BK on 15000 posts!  And to DR RODZINSKI on 1650!

BEN-HUR!  Can't afford to get ANOTHER one right now, but all the talk is interesting!  And at least in BEN-HUR, when Jesus healed the girls of their leprosy, he didn't also do their hair, like he did in THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD.

WELL....THE SHOW MUST GO ON.

Dateline: Greencastle, Indiana

Last night at 8:26 p.m. three transformers belonging to the Cinergy Corporation failed.  The eastern section of Greencastle was plunged into darkness.  This included the Hazel Day Longden Theatre, home of the Putnam County Playhouse.

Inside actors were performing MY THREE ANGELS.  Onstage were Bob Perry and Marian Zennie as Alfred and Marie Louise.  The emergency lights came on and shined onto the thrust stage, so without missing a beat, they continued the scene.

A few minutes later, Jack Randall Earles as Jules made his entrance (with a stolen chicken) and a flashlight.  Moments later, Beth Girton as Emilie entered, also carrying a flashlight.  The cast continued to the end of the scene.

At that point Director Ernie Ford took the stage to inform the audience what had happened and asked if they wanted the show to continue.  The audience applauded and insisted that "the show must go on."  And so it did.

Assistant director Sandi Rossok lit the candles that were on the set as props, and also lit four kerosene lamps that were around the stage (the show is set in 1910 French Guiana).  

And so the next scene began in the warm glow of candles, hurricane lamps, and a couple of flashlights.  

Act One ended.  Ford took the stage again and announced that Cinergy was working on the problem, but did not know how long it would take.  He said that if members of the audience wanted to leave, they would be escorted to their cars.  No one wanted to leave.  Ford said since there were no lights in the bathrooms, there would be no intermission.  He called "Lights up!" and the show continued.

About eight minutes into the second act, the lights returned and the show was completed.  As the lights began to shine again, Earles repeated a line that he had said earlier in the show: "Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow."  The audience applauded, the show concluded and received great applause.

                                                                -30-

AND I HOPE IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.  THE GUY WHO IS TERRIBLE WAS STILL TERRIBLE.....DECIDED TO AD LIB SOME FUNNY COMMENTS AND MADE HIMSELF SPOKESMAN FOR THE CAST DURING THE CURTAIN CALL.

ONLY ONE MORE PERFORMANCE.  TOMORROW'S HEADLINES WILL BE ALL ABOUT THE MURDER!!!  IT WILL BE AN 'ORIENT EXPRESS' TYPE OF DEMISE, WITH NINE STAB WOUNDS IN ONE BODY.  MAYBE TEN, I OWE HIM AN EXTRA ONE FOR THE HELL I'VE BEEN THROUGH.

That is all.

Addition to my previous list:  I forgot to list Saturday Night, sung by the Bay City Rollers, and Heartbeat (It's a Lovebeat), sung by the DeFrancos.  Two more songs that had my folks begging me to go back to listening to show music.

In the Who Knew Department - two actors recently discussed on these here boards, Duilio del Prete and Luciana Paluzzi appear in a film together!  Along with another former Bond girl, Ursula Andress. . .
I could be nice and say what movie it is, but, if I don't there'll be more, more, more (an Andrea True reference) POSTINGS!
