When I was a teenager, it was "When a Man Loves a Woman". When my kids were babies, it was "Sunrise, Sunset". Now that I'm getting old, it's "Happy Birthday to You".

Shoot! I came here in a hurry and this is a cool post that I need time for. I'll be back when time permits...
Real quik, tho, I've lost my L.M. cd with Lady of Shalott on it which I LOVED so much that I bought the print of John Waterhouse's painting of her and it hangs over the mantle in my livingroom.
You have good taste (well, besides Barry M.) and great wherewithall (is that a word?) Ok, fortitude? It's hard work linking to all those vids. Only a crazy person would do that. ;-P

Mr Lady said...

You have At Seventeen on the list. There is a reason we met, for sure. :)

Hi Val,

We aim to please.

JF,

Been looking for a good version to link to, but haven't found one yet.

Raizy,

It is hard to be 32. ;)

Wink,

I'd like to buy property in Fortitude, I hear that the prices are about equal to perseverance.

Mr. Lady,

But of course. ;)

Bell Bottom Blues - Derek and the Dominos
Angel - Fleetwood Mac (This line specifically always makes me sad: "I still look up, when you walk in the room. I've the same wide eyes, now they tell the story.")
