1968 seems like a good year to pick for this month so that’s what I went with. Nothing special why I chose this year so let’s see if you can choose who won the Oscar, who was nominated and who got nuttin’ honey. BTW, I'm entering this ro the Monday Music Moves Me hosted by Cathy from Curious as a Cathy.
1. CHITTY, CHITTY, BANG, BANG- SUNG BY DICK VAN DYKE & SALLY ANN HOWES
This song, composed, is famous and justly so because it is fun! It’s infectious and it plays more than once in the fun, family film of the same name that stars Penis Van Lesbian, er, I mean, Dick Van Dyke and the lovely Sally Ann Howes who has a very pretty voice.
2. WHO KNOWS WHERE THE TIME GOES- SUNG BY JUDY COLLINS
Judy has such a beautiful voice and was part of the folk music scene of the 60s but sang a lovely song, written by Sandy Denny, from the film, “The Subject Was Roses” starring Patricia Neal. This was the first film she made, winning an Oscar might I add, after suffering a debilitating stroke while pregnant 3 years earlier. The doctors thought she would never walk again never mind working gain and memorizing lines. This lady had quite the life and her autobiography is one to read because this gal went through some very difficult moments in her long life. I actually think she is pretty inspiring.
3. WINDMILLS OF YOUR MIND SUNG BY NOEL HARRISON
This song, composed by Michael Legrand with lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, comes from the film, “The Thomas Crown Affair”, starring those 2 docile , likeable actors Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. Actually, they are notorious for being the most obnoxious people to ever have to work with. This song was famously sung by Dusty Springfield but also sung by many others as well as known just by its music.
So can you guess which won won, which was nominated and which one came up empty?
