   Sistersuzey  Interesting. I was listening to West Side Story the other day, when this song played. This is from 1961. Funny (sad ) how more some things have changed, the more they are the same.

   MeiDei  Frank Sinatra's voice has been busying singing about that ant on TV commercials (love it ) Perhaps you do too, at any rate - can you listen to this without smiling ? I hope not. Enjoy.

Feel free to sing along, don't forget to smile.

   MeiDei  The "ghost peppers" inclusion caught my attention - wondering if Birdsnest has seen this as she has grown them & makes a ghost pepper jam or jelly. Funny how various the reactions were for the choir, some much affected others barely.

   MeiDei  Wondering if Sir Anthony wrote other music I did some more research and found this: "On 31 October 2011, AndrĂ© Rieu released an album including a waltz which Hopkins had composed in 1964, at the age of 26. Hopkins had never heard his composition, "And the Waltz Goes On", before it was premiered by Rieu's orchestra in Vienna." From, annotated, interviews w/Hopkins vs. the unsubstantiated 19 y/o reference above.
From Wikipedia: In January 2012, Hopkins released an album of classical music, entitled Composer, performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and released on CD via the UK radio station Classic FM.[66]The album consists of nine of his original works and film scores, with one of the pieces titled "Margam" in tribute to his home town near Port Talbot in Wales.[66]

   Safetydude  I don't know if there are any Country Music fans out there, but Country Hall Of Fame member Me Me Me Mel Tillis died this week at 85.
One song of his songs I remember from a long time ago is "Lying Time Again".

RIP Mel.

   MeiDei  5 friends from Texas:
When Pentatonix broke into the music scene in 2011, their incredible skill and A Capella style took the world by storm. Their main body of work is primarily covers of existing songs, medleys and even some original material.The two time Grammy-winning group is solely supported by a mix of tight harmonies and extremely technical beatboxing skills, and the final result is always a treat to hear.

   StormCnter  RIP, Fats Domino. I loved his music and never read anything detrimental about the man himself. We all know, don't we, that Dick Clark's wife gave Chubby Checker his performing name as a play on Chub's hero Fats Domino?

   MeiDei  Now let's go silly/crazy/whatever - maybe it's a weird kind of day but this me made me laugh out loud a few times. I hope it makes you laugh too - if it offends I'll delete it.
