Music Monday – Drum Crazy

Yesterday was Easter. Baskets. Eggs. Candy. Some treasure hunt of some sort. Easter dresses and suits. Church and religious connotations. Family dinner.

My tradition is watching a good dinner and watching Easter Parade with Judy Garland and Fred Astaire. I’ve been watching it for years now and have my grandparents to thank for my love of old movies like this. The talent of the dancers/singers was incredible, even if the screenplays weren’t all that…

One of my favorite numbers in Easter Parade is Fred Astaire in the toy store dancing and singing…

Do you enjoy old movies?

Music Monday – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

starbucksredtree13There are many versions of this song, but as we are in the midst of the holiday season and holiday movies are everywhere, the movie this song always brings to mind for me is Meet Me In St. Louis.

It’s not a holiday movie. It’s more about the state fair coming to St. Louis and how it affects a family. The movie spans fall and winter on into spring, but there’s something, always something about Judy Garland singing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas that touches me. She’s one of my favorites of all time and this one of my favorite movies of hers.

 I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season so far…
