Anita O’Day – Massachusetts

Not heading home for a while yet, but here’s my theme song!

Anita O’Day sings Massachusetts

ANITAMICbw

MASSACHUSETTS
(Andy Razaf / Luckey Roberts)

When the porter yells Massachusetts
I’ll be there with bells, Massachusetts
Homesick as can be, Massachusetts
Only place for me, Massachusetts
Got a special date
With that New England State

How my heart will knock, Massachusetts
To see Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts
Want to roam around, Massachusetts
In Nantucket town, Massachusetts
I can hardly wait
I hope the train ain’t late

You can’t guess how much it means for me to be there
Childhood friends and childhood scenes for me to see there

`Neath blue skies above, Massachusetts
With the one I love, Massachusetts
Just like Jack and Jill, Massachusetts
We’ll climb Bunker Hill, Massachusetts
Spread the news around
I’m Massachusetts bound

As you walk to Lexington, you think of glory
When those minute men were done, they left a story

Where they speak with ee’s, Massachusetts
Boston if you pleese, Massachusetts
Where they can’t say can’t, Massachusetts
And where Aunt meets Aunt, Massachusetts
Spread the news around
I’m Massachusetts, Massachusetts bound

Gene Krupa & His Orch. (vocal: Anita O’Day) – 1942
Also recorded by: Dinah Shore; The Hi-Lo’s;
Maxine Sullivan; Sally Stark; Andrews Sisters.

I <3 Gilbert O'Sullivan

I can’t be the only Gilbert O’Sullivan fan left in the world, can I? These songs are absolute GEMS! They very much remind me of being a kid, but damn these are great. Alone Again, Naturally, Claire, Get Down.

You can’t watch it here, but here’s a link to one of his bestest Alone Again, Naturally

This one takes me back for sure:

It’s a Java Kind of morning!

I don’t even drink coffee, but this song tends to be in my head on waking on wonderful sunny warm Saturdays like today. Great day to sleep in, be in Phoenixville, dog and husband at home finally, heading to the farmers market, seeing friends, catching up with neighbors, grilling. Life is good.

Rialto Monday Morning 5:19

Glanced up at my CD collection last night while reaching for the plant food and saw Rialto. Classic song!

Musical Milestones – The Stray Cats

The first time I saw the Stray Cats was this appearance on the TV show Fridays in 1981. Yeah pretty much a life changing moment! I remember having my first real paying babysitting job must’ve been that summer and being so psyched to go to Strawberries Music and pick out a bunch of records. I know I got a number of them but now I can only remember Squeeze and The Stray Cats.

Stardust- Nat “King” Cole / Hoagy Carmichael

Oh the things you find when you’re looking for something else. Sheer perfection. Both Nat and Hoagy are my faves.
