My son Roger III posted this on his blog this morning. I was quite touched by this fine old song done by two fine old pros. All I can say is that Barbra's eyes are even better than her voice. I once sang a Karaoke duet, "Shall We Dance", from "The King and I" with my daughter-in-law, Jeanne, and she totally intimidated me with eyes just like that.
Last night we watched Leonard Cohen's film, "I'm Your Man". I'd forgotten the earthy, gut-wrenching work he did back in the days of my highly modified hippy priesthood days. But he brought it back. Here's two versions of a record I once owned and loved of his _ "Suzanne".
Call me that, if you will. And, of course, You would be right. I listen with quiet, sentimental attention to The Sound of Music's lovely "Edelweiss" with The Caption, Maria,The children. It gets to me every time.
Been a little grumpy today. So I fired up YouTube and started looking for something nice.
Didn't expect anything quite this nice. Diana Krall, Elvis Costello & Willie Nelson singing "Crazy." So now I click my heels and jump for a crazy kind of joy!
