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?
