Rat Pack Night!

Its official! The theme for next week is songs for the Rat Pack Era. For those younger readers, The Rat Pack was a group of Hollywood stars originally centered around the Humphrey Bogart/Lauren Bacall social set. After Bogie died, and Bacall started dating Sinatra, Sinatra became the official *leader* of a group that finally evolved to include Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. The girl hangers on were Shirley MacClain and Angie Dickenson. I'm excited so long as they keep to the era and don't just trot out Sinatra 1970's songs like New York New York and Strangers in the Night. And, I suppose if HE really wants to he can actually sing Volare complete with sound effects! I would actually fall off my couch in spasms of laughter from which I might never recover if HE sang Volare next week!

The idol boards want Allison to sing Stormy Weather. I think that would be a huge mistake. I think she ought to sing one of Rosemary Clooney's songs beause her voice is sort of husky like Rosemary's voice is. And for younger readers, Rosemary is George's aunt and a far better entertainer than he will ever hope to be!

Welcome to our new followers, Bonnie and Steph. I am privileged that Steph can also call me Auntee. For Bonnie's information HE refers to the one I do not like.

Everyone reading is welcome to comment on our posts, even if you disagree.

And, they are going to sing 2 songs next week.
