Production Note
To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

We sought the help of the Way-Back Machine to open Act 2. Ladies and gentlemen, we have transported you back to 1962, so let’s hear those screams and cheers … singing I Was Born to Cry … Dion!

  1. Here’s one of my favorites, Frank. Springsteen, Born in the USA.

    Once I was driving three kids to school in Switzerland. This song came on and I watched them, with their heads thrown back and their mouths wide open, like those of baby birds, singing this with all of their hearts. Not a one of the three had, in fact, been Born in the USA!


  2. Following, but in the midst of preparing to go away.

    Partial to all things ‘Talking Heads’. Steppenwolf’s ‘Born To Be Wild’; may have or may have not have listened to from the backseat of my ’76 candy apple red Cutlass Supreme when I wasn’t alone.

    For myself, Ray Charles and Billy Joel, along with Tony Bennett and KD Lang seemed at the time odd, but both turned out to be good choices.


    • Amy,
      I didn’t anticipate Sir Mix a Lot, so I chuckled for a variety of reasons. The Whiting & Mercer version of Baby It’s Cold Outside is a wonderful music to dance a Fox Trot. Thanks for the smiles!


  3. when our youtube banned is over, I will come back for all your posts again dear Frank, how makes me angry when I can’t watch!!!!! Thank you, I love musical, have a nice day, love, nia


    • Laurie,
      Although a short distance, it was quite stressful … and after a month, I can’t see we are back in normal rhythm yet.

      Meanwhile, in honor of Life: The Musical and for you stopping by, here’s a song from long ago – but a favorite of many … Bruce Channel singing Hey Baby.
