GDP With Blossom Dearie

I think this song might be winner of most posted video! Good thing it’s awesome.

“Rhode Island Is Famous For You” was written in 1948 by Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz. Blossom Dearie sang it in 1960 on her album “Blossom Dearie Sings Broadway Hit Songs.” I wonder if the School House Rock people were thinking of this song when they hired her.

Rhode Island is actually famous for being home of the world headquarters for  Hasbro Toys and Games. Hasbro markets Transformers and so they are indirectly responsible for the career of director and hated Sith Lord Michael Bay. I certainly can’t end the post on that unpleasant note, so here’s a fun and educational Blossom Dearie blast from my past!
