The radio stations played this OVER AND OVER when I was a kid….but this was really a FUN song
THIS Gal Can Sing
I am a vocalist also and the only thing I do well — is sing. So, when I hear someone who sings fantastic, I take note.
She is like a storm coming through… What a powerhouse voice. Her name is Sarah Potenza:
The POLICE….Loved That Synchronicity Album
I think I was about 18-19 when this album came out. A couple months out of High School. This instantly brings me back to Pacific Grove, California. I had just graduated and was ready to enter College. I had a major setback and waited until 1984 to enter college. But, I can remember driving thru the Monterey tunnel singing this song. So many memories.
Here is a tribute for ya’all… Especially Our blog pal, and brother in the Lord, Cleveland Foxer since he graduated HS a little before me.
Have a great weekend,
Shabbat Shalom and Happy Church 🙂
My 70’s BOHO Inspired Art Collection
Most of these are 1970’s models. I run some of them thru an art program. There was such a sense of unusual style in the 70’s and 80’s. At any rate… I LOVE mixing these models with modern effects found on pinterest. My mixing art effects and such really allows me to disappear from the present lunacy. 🙂
Enjoy your weekend! Here is a song for you to ponder:
May the LORD richly bless all of you.
And, may God have mercy on the people who hate us and him.
My Favorite WORSHIP Songs & We NEED This Now
I really, really miss powerful worship services. It’s like they just ‘died off’. It’s so upsetting. We used to go to Fellowship…we would praise and worship and the whole place was FILLED with the glory of the LORD. It was so thick with God’s mighty Holy Spirit that you could cut it! People would run to the altar to receive Yeshua/Jesus as their Messiah and Savior.
At any rate.. I wanted to share my absolute favorite one:
“Hosanna, Hosanna, In the highest”
If you want to weep your eyes out, hear this one:
Dallas Holm…. “RISE AGAIN!” Hallelujah!
After you listen to these…it doesn’t matter what the reprobates and apostates do….
YAHVEH GOD IS MORE POWERFUL AND WILL SLAY HIS ENEMIES!
Man, did I love Fogelberg. LOVE his tunes!
“Run for the Roses”
“Leader of the Band”
My FAVORITE: “Missing You”
RIP! Miss you Dan!
I love black lace and LOVE a single red rose against it. It’s such a contrast. Plus, I’m a Portuguese, Sephardic chick and LOVE Spanish and Portuguese culture and tradition. I just had Portuguese Linguica last night!
♥ Anyway….it’s the weekend again and I appreciate all of your comments, thoughts, dropping of links with information so that people can SEE what is happening all over. My commenters are my online friends. They can email me anytime and share with me their thoughts. Ya’all mean a lot to me. I hope you all have a nice, quiet, peaceful weekend & I pray God will bless all of you with joy 🙂
Here is a BEAUTIFUL Spanish song called “Memories of the Alhambra”. Take a couple of minutes and let this song sooth your weary soul.
- Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Memories of the Alhambra) is a classical guitar piece composed in Málaga by Spanish composer and guitarist Francisco Tárrega. … It became known through an early 20th-century publication edited by Tárrega and dedicated as an homage to the French guitarist Alfred Cottin. The tremolo study ‘Recuerdos de la Alhambra’ composed in 1896 is, without doubt, the most famous piece by the Spanish composer and guitarist Francisco Tárrega, bringing back memories of the fortified Moorish palace situated on a hill in the Spanish city of Granada.
Ethel Merman, The MOST Fabulous Broadway Singer EVER. Forgotten Because She Was A PATRIOTIC Conservative & Sang Sondheim Songs Like NOBODY Else
Recently, Stephen Sondheim passed away. RIP. His earlier works were stupendous. They exceeded his later–by far.
At any rate, the usual Leftist crap Youtubes & other Video hosts & hostesses posted their choice for ’10 best Sondheim songs’. Which were just about the worst of Sondheim with the exception of “Somewhere” from Westside Story.
Who authors this absolute garbage? WHY do Leftists choose the worst of the worst when it comes to talent? They completely left out the level best Broadway singing star: Ethel Merman from their synopsis’. How could they? This was an era where Sondheim shined spectacularly. NOBODY could project as Merman did. NOBODY had the vibrato she had. Berlin, Porter, Sondheim, Styne and Laurent’s chose Merman as their leading lady, time and time again because the audience could understand every single word they wrote for her to sing in their original Broadway musicals without a microphone.
Instead, they chose Bernadette Peters, Patty Loudmouth LaPone and Bette Marxist Midler to highlight Sondheim’s songs. Hell, they didn’t even post ugly Streisand singing “Send in the clowns” from her Broadway album to salute Sondheim—Which was, without a doubt, the best sung version.
So, I’m highlighting Ethel because I LOVED her voice, brassiness & patriotism. Merman was known for her powerful, belting mezzo-soprano voice and precise enunciation and pitch. Because stage singers performed without microphones when Merman began singing professionally, she had a great advantage, despite never taking singing lessons. Broadway lore holds that George Gershwin advised her never to take a singing lesson after she opened in his Girl Crazy.
Merman, a lifelong Republican, was a frequent guest at the Eisenhower White House. Merman was also noted as saying, “Eisenhower was my war hero and the President I admire and respect most.”. On January 20, 1981, Merman performed at the inauguration of Ronald Reagan singing “Everything’s Coming up Roses”. She had previously sung the same song at an inaugural gala for John F. Kennedy which was never broadcast.
Here she is with Judy Garland:
LOVE YOU ETHEL!
