I Smell Cake*

Well they say that the stars go in three’s and here is a case of that being true. In the past couple of weeks three icons from my youth have past away.

All of them were stars in their time and provided their own brand of entertainment. Thank goodness that they will live on forever with their performances.

R.I.P and thank you for entertaining us.

iTunes Play List: Secret Love

I have a play list on in my iTunes library called: Academy Award Best Original Song. One of them is “Secret Love” from “Calamity Jane” (1953) by Doris Day.

It has to be one of the prettiest songs I have ever heard. The play count of this song is 78 times. I can listen to this song over and over.

I haven’s seen the movie, but it is on my Bucket List of movies to watch.

Here are some facts about the song.

Secret Love” is a Pop song composed by Sammy Fain (music) and Paul Francis Webster (lyrics) for Calamity Jane the 1953 movie musical in which it was introduced by Doris Day in the title role.

Here are some other versions of the song done by different artists:

I would have to say that Doris Day’s version of the song is the best.

Stars Still With Us

As you may be ale to tell by some of my posts. I am curious about the Stars Dying in Three’s. Is it true, do they really die in three’s? Celebrities die every day — there’s no pattern. But it does freak me out when three celebrities do die in a row.

Check out this post that I saw on Facebook. I was surprised on how old some of these stars are. And there were one or two that I thought had already pasted away.

Stars Sill With Us

Some of the actors and actresses on this list are my favorites. It will be a sad day when they do pass away.

But until that day comes, “Life is an adventure! So live it up!” ― L.M. Preston

Side Note:

Well, crap… on Tuesday, January 26, Abe Vigoda, Det. Fish on TV’s ‘Barney Miller,’ Died at 94.  


I remember watching him on ‘Barney Miller.’ R.I.P. Abe Vigoda. 

This is the second time that I posted about an entertainer and the pass away a couple of days later. 

Song of the Day

Lately, I have been on a kick to get several different artist versions of a song. The one that I have been searching for this past weekend was ““The Way We Were”” (1973) by Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman, scored by Marvin Hamlisch and performed by Barbra Streisand. Not only was the movie great, but this song

… won the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Song and also made AFI‘s list of Top 100 Songs from Film; it was ranked number eight. (from wikipedia.com)

Right now I have about sever or eight different artists version of the song.

But next to Streisand version of the song, my next favorite version is the one by Dave Koz featuring Vanessa Williams.



Vanessa Williams has such an amazing voice and is so talented. There are so many of her songs that I like. But I really like the cover version of the songs she does better. And this one ranks on my list of top cover songs.

If you have not gotten the chance to hear or see the other versions of this song, you need to. You will love all of them.
