Wonderful Tunes Provided By Friends. Wild Tangents Provided By Me.

I just read a cool little bio on Betty Hutton and I’ve officially added her to my list of girl crushes! This nifty performance is from the 1943 movie “Let’s Face It” and the song is Cole Porter’s “Let’s Not Talk About Love.” The song was first performed on Broadway and the lyrics were a bit more risque. They were changed in the movie to comply with the Hays Code. You can read the original lyrics here. They contain references to drugs, nudity and something called “spermatology” so you know they’re good!

When I get together with my girlfriends conversation almost invariably turns to matters of love but that seldom happens with my guy friends. That’s probably because most of my guy friends are “not on the market” for one reason or another so such conversations could get awkward fast. But like the song says there are lots and lots of other things to talk about. Most of my guy friends are nerds like me so most talk quickly reverts to The Dork Side. That’s better than squishy old girl talk any day ’cause there’s spaceships, and super powers and sometimes you get to wear your underpants on the outside of your clothes! And yes I realize that last part talks about underpants but it’s still totally geek speak. Such is the power of The Dork Side.
