This is another week and I think it is week 19 for the song challenge. Jingle, Jangle, Jungle has created a fun weekly challenge where you choose a song that fits the theme. I went off my "first thought of a song" this week because I wanted something Canadian and something with my birthday month(June). Here are the 3 themes:
A SONG WITHA COUNTRY IN THE TITLE
A SONG THAT MENTIONS A TYPE OF WEATHER IN THE TITLE
A SONG WITH A MONTH IN THE TITLE
1. THIS IS A SONG THAT WILL ONLY MAKE SENSE TO CANADIANS BY JON BRETT-2020
I wanted to choose something a bit quirky but fun without a lot of grandiosing, not sure if that is a word but, ask if I care. I never realized that you never say Pop and only say soda..weird. I found it especially weird when I ordered fish and chips and got...potato chips..WTF?? That is a snack you eat when watching a movie or a game. Anyway, just so you know, you pronounce Z as Zed not Zee...you guys are weird :)
2. STORMY WEATHER-1933-SUNG BY JUDY GARLAND
When I bought this album and heard Judy sing this song, I was floored. It's as if you hear her pain and anguish when singing this. I found it breathtaking. I know Lena Horne sang it in the 1943 film of the same name but this is the one that makes me think this 1933 song by Harold Arlen & Ted Koehler belongs to Judy. I know there are many versions but love this one.
3. JUNE IN JANUARY-1934-SUNG BY BING CROSBY
I got 2...2 months in one! I will be 57 in June..wow!! I still feel like I am 30 except for the aches and pains..hahahaa. I came across this ditty which was written by Ralph Rainger and Leo Robin for the 1934 film, Here Is My Heart. I think it's a nice song actually.
I am still bruised up inside from last week but I am glad to have that operation and it only take me longer to heal because of my Ehlers-Danlos. I am on the road to improvement which is the best thing. Now I have to leave you with this... I hope you watch this.
I AM CANADIAN COMMERCIAL!
