SoCS — ROUND AND ROUND, PERRY COMO – REBLOG – FANDANGO

Can two minds thing MORE alike? I remember this song because I had it on a 45 RPM. Remember then? I had a little record player and a pile of records in every color of the spectrum. I always like Perry Como, though I never understood how come he could sing with his teeth apparently clenched.

FOWC with Fandango — Highway
(ROUND & ROUND)


 

This, That, and The Other

When I saw Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, which is to “use the word ‘round’ as a word by itself or find a word that contains it,” the first thing that came to mind was “a round tuit,” as in “I’ll get around to it.” But then I realized that I already wrote a post about round tuits. In fact, that post, which you can read here, was written for one of Linda’s One-Liner Wednesday prompts. So there goes that idea.

The next thing that came to mind was the saying, “What goes around comes around.” But guess what? I wrote this post for a Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver prompt. Sheesh! Another idea down the drain.

  1. I was always a big Perry Como fan even when he was considered passe by our college radio friends. I still like Perry very much. Enjoyed his laid back style. Big ballads fan of the crooners who did the top 40, tin pan alley songs. Obviously, a different era. Case in point: Nat Cole’s “I Love You …For Sentimental Reasons”. Our wedding song. First heard that on a 78 when I was a kid at a relative’s house.

    Nat Cole is so special. The voice. So smooth. I think Mel Torme stole “The Velvet Fog” nickname from Cole who was described by peers as having a “haunting, smooth voice of pure velvet”.

  2. I used to watch the Perry Como show on the TV when I was a kid. My mum and dad like his style. When Magic Moments got into the hit parade he became known in the UK
