Thanks for posting that! I'd never seen that before, and just watched all three. What a talented and funny lady!

Now I don't ever have to worry about buying tickets to see that opera (especially at "those prices"!)

In my youth, I considered this song an order. Now it makes me laugh.



I'll add anything by Mclean & Mclean. You'll have to go to youtube to get them (not nice) and a work and "puritan" warning is in order.

+1. I "listened" to the 1953 version on YouTube. Some people swear by the Ring series but I could never get into it. Anna's version? I can get into it easily .

There was a live version of Elvis's song "Are You Lonesome Tonight" at about the 1 minute mark, where he changes some words and starts cracking up the rest of the song. And the background singers keep singing. This always makes me laugh.
