Here was the Turtle labouring away on a post that started like this :
It has come to my attention that although I did put some music here and there in some of my posts , it’s been a long time since I have made a “music” post.
It has also come to my attention that some of you are already – hang on , you still have 12 more days ahead of you – getting a bit tired of all the Christmas songs blaring from the speakers on shopping malls , supermarkets , and even on the streets.
note 1 : I do like Christmas Songs , a lot actually , but not constantly .
And it has also come to my attention – yes I have been paying attention to the world surrounding me , which is not always the case 😉 – that today we are celebrating what would have been Mr. Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday .
I can’t imagine how it is going over there in the USA , but here we have all the major newspapers and television stations doing specials on one of the most loved singers of all times .
A few minutes ago I was calling my father and he was just saying that he was listening to this radio station “Smooth FM ” as they are doing a full 24-hours special on Mr. Sinatra .
note 2 : I do like to listen to Mr. Frank Sinatra singing , I was brought up listening to him .
So here I was , preparing to get back to my music subject and to share with you something a little different than the mentioned above.
Best plans or intentions or whatever is the saying – I can’t recall it now , a little help from my English teachers would be welcome here – went flying away because my dear husband ( today he is dear husband , tomorrow will probably revert to the One , as we never know which way the wind is blowing around here , it keeps life interesting ) decided to put Smooth FM playing during dinner .
I’m telling you , after 20 years of growing up with Frank’s company , listening to him again today in a very well chosen selection wiped away all my best intentions of distracting you with something else.
You see , my father not only listened to Mr. Frank Sinatra frequently , he also collected his records , and sang along in some very very good (well , I am the daughter what would I say ?) renditions of his own , that are taped somewhere.
So probably tomorrow I will get back to you with something else.
But today it is Mr. Frank Sinatra’s day .
So , for Daddy who sang this song particularly well , and also for dear husband (today) because “every since that night , we’ve been together , lovers at first sight , in love forever”
But because “call me irresponsible , call me unreliable , throw in undependable too ..
… call me unpredictable , tell me I’m impractical
Rainbows I’m inclined to pursue
call me irresponsible , yes I’m unreliable
But it’s undeniably true
I’m irresponsibly mad for you …
My Way , by my boy Robbie , well what were you expecting ?
This is The Turtle Way after all 🙂
Turtle Hugs and enjoy your weekend , preferably in the company of music
