Ring: Stein Mart
Remember the Bobby Vinton song…Blue on Blue, Heartache on Heartache?? I thought of it today when I put this outfit together. Now, it’s in my head…can’t get it out!
But, speaking of music, did anyone else feel old during the Grammys this past Sunday?? I haven’t watched any awards ceremonies in a long time, but the sudden death of Whitney Houston led me to watch the Grammys since it was to become a part of my Current Events lesson for class on Monday. I was already feeling sad about Whitney….such an incredible talent and such a sad story.
|Beach Boys on Grammy Night|
Then….here come the Beach Boys! I slept out in the rain once for Beach Boys tickets so I could be near the front….to dance on a chair throughout the concert…it was so much fun! But, Sunday night….they were old…they looked old…they sounded old…and Mike Love even grabbed his right arm once and I thought, “OH NO, he is going to have a heart attack right there on the stage!!” After they sang, I felt sad.
|Glenn Campbell Grammy Night|
To add to the pain….this was followed by a performance with Glenn Campbell and a tribute to him. I actually enjoyed him a little more…knowing he has Alzheimer’s disease…I thought he was fun and did really well with Rhinestone Cowboy.
|Paul McCartney Grammy Night|
As in all things, there was a silver lining around the corner! The whole night ended with a performance by seventy year old Paul McCartney…I do not know how the man does it…but he just doesn’t look or sound as old as he is. He hopped around from the piano to the guitar and jammed with the top electric guitarists of the evening including Springsteen. He had that cute, joyful- Paul- look in his eye that has been there since his 20s. While the younger generation was mass Tweeting, “WHO IS PAUL MCCARTNEY??”; I was singing and dancing along with him.
Also, I downloaded his latest CD, Kisses on the Bottom….if you love Frank Sinatra or Michael Buble or Tony Bennett or even just jazz…you will love this! It is so different from anything he has done. But, the music will mentally take you to a dimly lit, romantic New York setting where he serenades with just a piano, acoustic guitar, and a snare. I love it…but he has been singing to me (yes, just to me) since I was 11!!
