I SO LOVE exposing the grandbebes to my old 70s music favorites. This is Gemma’s movie in honor of her turning 4. She is a cutie.
“Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” was the first song we chose because it was sprinkling one morning she was here, very gray and that seemed happy. But I couldn’t resist leaving Gemma’s chatter in, so I had to switch from the wonderful B.J. Thomas rendition to the Ferrante and Teicher version. Some might call this “elevator music,” but I can actually appreciate their piano renditions (plus symphony) of the movies of the 1960s and 70s. So I digitized “Raindrops” from an old LP I have.
Then, what perfect dance song would I use? Hmmm…..I changed this song a dozen times or more. I knew when I found the right one, I’d just know it. And I did! Leo Sayer’s 1976 played-constantly-on-the-radio, “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing!” Happy!
LOVE YOU, Gemma!
You are a smile-bringer, o-yes you are!
