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

Dinah Shore

Dinah Shore is probably best known for her long running TV talk show and for the annual golf tournament which used to bear her name, but she was quite a popular singer in the 40’s and 50’s. She also starred in a hand full of movies including “Belle Of The Yukon” (1945). It’s on Netflix so I’ll probably watch it tonight but, by all accounts, it’s a stinker of a movie. It did spawn the jazz standard “Like Someone In Love”  which is today’s video.

Personal note: Someday I really must put together a list of fantastic songs which debuted in terrible movies…

I wonder what it is about the stars that sets young lovers’ hearts a-flutter. Balls of gas don’t generally inspire romance no matter how big they are. You can trust me on that one for I am the voice of experience! Maybe the gas has to be set aflame for the desired affect. I’ll have to do some experimenting and get back to you on that one…
