Musical Monday


For this week's MM, the theme is mobile music.  I've been watching some old-school Rat Pack Youtube video's this week, so I chose Sammy Davis, Jr., singing Mr. Bojangles since it's about dancing.



In watching Frank & Dean & Sammy, etc. I realize how much Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, and the rest really have to learn to be a real "entertainer".

I think it's sad that our kids will not know what real performers are like.

Head over & see Amanda at Bloggin' With Amanda to check out Musical Monday!

Mimi you're so right the kids of today have a lot to learn when it comes to a lot of things. Sammy was a professional that so many only aspire to be! What a great choice for this week, glad to have you back with us!

I totally agree. Entertainers from the past seem to have so much more depth.

I really dislike today's "music". Although I'm pretty much lost in classical music anyway, lol! Sinatra rocks!!!!

Boy do you have that right. They had to do it all back then and they knew how to "please" an audience.
Great choice in song by the way

They just don't make them like they used. I loved hearing Sammy sharing his story behind the song. Great pick!
