Part of why Feste_Sylvain loves me

(He has finally arrived in Israel, by the way.)

Conversation over dinner at Arisia:

Me: "So come to my house-"

Feste, singsong: "Come on-a my house..."

Me, bursting into full song: "a my house, I'mma gonna give you candy... come on-a my house, a myyyy house, I'mma gonna give you EVerything, and-"

Feste: *bemused and adoring grin*

Me: "What? You're expecting me not to know Rosemary Clooney?"

Everyone should know Rosemary Clooney, you guys.

(I was raised in the '80s, but my true musical childhood is the 1940s and '50s.)

Outstanding! (Rosie was a swell dame.)

Of course one knows Rosemary Clooney! It's a good song. (Hearing that song on NPR got me to buy her Best Of.)

I was rooming with sisters this weekend. Guess which of her songs kept coming up? Yup, "Counting My Blessings" ;)

But seriously, everytime I hear "Sisters" I keep picturing.Astaire and Crosby in drag...

completely and utterly unrelated: I was wondering if perhaps I might impose upon you to skype into my friday class in March and talk about rape culture? I am teaching women and creativity and we are focusing on female sexuality this semester. We are going to read Bailey's Cafe by Gloria Naylor which contains some violence against women, including rape. Class started today, but the group has already really come together and really gotten into the topic. I know this is pretty big to just put in a comment, my email is deepforestowl@gmail.com and my cell phone is 630-660-0130 (I'm in Chicagoland).

Ms. Clooney's version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" actually makes me cry my eyes out like a little baby tear up a little every time I hear it. Her voice was gorgeous.

Huh, I'm not sure I've ever eveh HEARD her version -- in my mind, Judy Garland is canonical.

Clooney's version was one of the first I remember hearing. Garland's version was the original and is quite beautiful, but Clooney's is, if anything, even MORE melancholy! That's probably why I like it so much... it must be the Irishman in me. ;-)
