Over heard in the neighborhood:
|The Rat Pack:Frank Sinatra,|
Dean Martin, Peter Lawford,
Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop
Kids on the street outside talking about ' music from the old days'.
One boy told the others that "my grandpa liked a group called the 'Rat Pack'.
"I never heard o'them" replied another kid.
"Nah, me neither. It was like a few guys that like sung and stuff.
One of them was real famous called Sammy David Jupiter."
So here is a meme for you. I hope you will give it a try.
1. Like anyone from the Rat Pack?
I think the voices of Sinatra, Martin and Davis are beautiful. Joey Bishop was funny.
Peter Lawford was a decent actor and I do like old black and white films!
2. Do you think music was better 'back then'?
Yes. I am not impressed with the belting of today's music. I like more subtle expression and real vocal talent. I am not crazy about auto tune singers.
3. Does the life style of some musicians and performers turn you off to their music?
Yes, it really can. Some performers are just blah to me because I can't separate the two.
Dirty lyrics/comedy/scripts cancel out any talent as far as I am concerned.
4. Have you been to any concerts?
Yes, in many different forms from religious singers to famous orchestras and opera , to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
And speaking of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.....
I want these people for neighbors!!!
