Orchid Lady, never mind North of the Border give a thought to us lot the other side, I need my beauty sleep (badly) so keep it low, "err" well ish.
Yarrow2, Deanna Durban was my first love I must have been all of ten at the time, I remember seeing one film three times in a week because my Parents loved musicals too.
All the years I have listened, Danced to, and played music some of it sticks for no particular reason. Cowboy films as a lad were a must and in one I heard South of the Border and it stuck, why. Clair de Lune was the first classical piece I played on the piano and it still tugs when I hear it. The Continental and all the things you are the musicals we saw in wartime. Carousel, Oklahoma, Blue Danube that was the night my late wife Joan and I danced in Vienna on an empty floor in a packed hall, why that happened I never worked out but we certainly got applause, unforgettable.
Music these days tends to be wall paper though every now and then one grabs you, last week on an old time show "The last time I saw Paris" we sang that after the fall of France and straight after "Smoke gets in your eye's" as a none smoking cinema goer that one hit base. Wonderful memories. Now I will go give my Ailsa Craig tomato's some TLC, may even sing to them, maybe not they might droop.
