Vintage Music: And I Love Her By The Beatles

One day one of my best friends bought me a CD of the Best of the Beatles. I thought it to be quite odd, since I never really listened to very much of the Beatles during that time. I did not have one record by them, but somehow the music was and still is very much apart of me. It is that type of music you may never own, but know all the words too whenever it’s played on the radio, or you just suddenly start humming a verse out of the blue for no reason at all. It is amazing how much The Beatles’s are apart of the fabric of our deep subconsciousness, whether we want it to be or not. Lately, I have been revisiting that CD and exploring every aspect of it, as I do with jazz. It brings me back to memories of my childhood, but mostly my dad who loved to listen to Latin Bolero’s in NYC on the radio, but whenever we drove down south we’d lose the Spanish station. As a result, we listen to this type of American music. Forever in my heart and soul! Rip to my dad and the rest!

Thanks to youtube’s Pricillajens for this wonderful clip of the Beatles’s song “And I Love Her” played to some wonderful photos of some of the greatest leading lady actresses of Hollywood from the vintage era! Loved this!

Here is her wonderful write up:

Vintage Music: Winter Wonderland By Doris Day

Doris Day was born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff on April 3, 1924. She was an American film and television actress, singer, and animal rights activist. I remember her most as a child from the film “Pajama Game” and the scene in the film “Henando’s Hideaway”. I am a die hard fan of Ella Fitzgerald, but I must say that Doris Day’s version of “Fly Me To the Moon” is most dreamy.
