So, update...my colonoscopy backfired pun intended. There was no way, in little green acres, that I could drink that much fluid. I never could. When I tried drinking the 2nd half of that bubblegum tasting liquid, I violently threw up. Thankfully it was just that one time but I lived on the toilette until 3 am. The Friday, I informed the nurses and the Dr about that issue. When I woke up, I was told that he could not proceed through with the camera. I will have to repeat this. The God's must love me.....not! The next time, just give me those 2 glass full of liquid hell to take. I cam get through that. Now, tell me, what aspiring Dr to be wishes to put cameras up peoples' butts?
On with the show and I can't believe it is the 3rd week of July. It's hotter than Hades out there so I'm glad I am inside in air conditioning. I am choosing 1961 since my brother was born that year in July for the Oscar song fest. Which song won the Oscar that year which one was nominated and which song hot nadda...let me know what you think.
1. CRUELLA DE VIL SUNG BY BILL LEE
This is a great song, written by Roger Radcliffe, about one evil character who wishes to make a coat out of the 101 Dalmation puppies. I enjoyed how the song was presented and it was another win for Disney.
2. POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES SUNG BY FRANK SINATRA
This song is to complement the film about a homeless woman who gets the help of some special people when she finds out her daughter wants to visit. Don't we all wish for some miracles. This song was composed by James Van Heusen with lyrics by Sammy Cahn
3. MOONRIVER SUNG BY AUDREY HEPBURN
I will be surprised if someone has not heard of this song. Audrey was going to be dubbed, but she fought for her right to sing this song and I think she does a good job. It became a huge hit for Andy Williams which almost became his signature tune. It was composed by the great Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer.
So , which song won the Oscar, which was nominated, and which one received nadda?
Here's my guess: winner, Moon River, nominated, Pocketful of Miracles, and nada, Cruella.ReplyDelete
Sorry to read about your unfortunate fate with the gallon of liquid. I hope the next round goes smoother and has less you need to drink beforehand.
You are correct! Yes, I will hope they give me 2 glasses of the vile liquid not 4L.ReplyDelete
Good songs here. My favorite: Cruella De Vil.ReplyDelete
Sorry about your procedure--or lack thereof. Toes-crossed it will go better next time.
I was going to say the same thing as Bleubeard.ReplyDelete
There are several examples of Audrey Hepburn singing on YouTube, from My Fair Lady and Gigi. She has a nice voice. I love Marni Nixon to death, but I think they should have given Audrey a shot.
I also agree with Bleubeard. As for your medical ordeal, it was way worse 20 years ago, so hold your nose and gulp it down. I've learned to take the liquid into the loo with a good book and stay put, lol.ReplyDelete
Hi Birgit - not a pleasant medical ordeal ... good luck for next time. Thanks for reminding us of the 61 Oscar songs ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
So sorry you have to redo the colonoscopy! :( These are all great songs and I loved the movies, as well.ReplyDelete
Oh yuck, sorry about the procedure not working and hoping for better luck next time.ReplyDelete
