    So sweet and strangely ‘succulent’ 😀 So much appeal without an inch of twerk.

    I once listened to a radio program on the BBC and it featured self-professed “music haters,” people who didn’t “get” music and never wanted to listen to it. The host asked people to call in and suggest music that might change their minds. The songs they played included “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong, “Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

    It was the one song that broke a few of the music haters. I’ll never forget that.

      I get that, because beyond the music the song, as performed by Garland, speaks directly to the heart. Pretty dang transcendent if it got through to “music haters”. I’ll have to look in the BBC archive and see if I can find that broadcast, thank you!

    Dearest V
    Perfect in her very human imperfection.
    Even though I do prefer the song when Sarah Vaughan sings (sang) it… treason, I know.
    Yours ever

      Sarah Vaughan? Where have I been! I will look that up. Thanks!
