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

RIP Margaret Whiting

Margaret Whiting passed away on January 11. She was 86. Margaret started singing in 1942 and her career lasted more than six decades. She was once asked in an interview what separates good singers from truly great singers. She answered, “Being a great actress, being very dramatic. Some people sing beautiful songs, but they don’t put all the meaning into them, and that’s the important thing. To read a lyric, to make the words come alive, that’s the secret.” Here is Margaret perfectly illustrating her point with the song “Time After Time” (Kahn, Styne 1947).

A beautiful song and by all accounts a beautiful woman. RIP Mrs Whiting.
