So, what's on my playlist today, dear readers?
Yesterday was Mothers Day. For me, it is a bittersweet holiday, as my Mom has been gone 53 years. My mother in law, meantime, is in declining health.
This song was a favorite of my Mom's - Rosemary Clooney (the aunt of actor George Clooney) Come On-A My House, a hit in 1951.
My Mom and my mother in law both love(d) Frank Sinatra - this song is a song I can not listen to without crying - A Very Good Year. This song was originally written for another singer, back in 1961, Erwin Drake, who recorded it with the Kingston Trio. But Ol' Blue Eyes made it his own.
Also, a handful of songs that mention mothers in one context or another. The Shirelles - Mamma Said
Queen - Tie Your Mother Down
What's Going on by Marvin Gaye. Sadly, this singer was tragically murdered by his father on April 1, 1984 after an argument between the two men turned physical.
And last but not least, again by Queen, the classic hit Boheminan Rhapsody.
I hope you had a rockin' good time. Next week, John is back with a theme we'll always remember...
