While I am on my nostalgia theme, I thought I would share two of my favorite songs I used to hear my Dad sing when I was growing up. I still love these old songs. Vera Lynn was a huge favorite in our home.
One of my favorites used to be Lile Marlena. I would pretend to be Marleina Deitrich, singing those lyrics word for word much to the amusement of my parents, affecting her movements from all the times I had seen her on the TV. Old black and white movies fascinated me at an early age. They would get me to sing in front of family and friends. I was a good little actress they told them, all that was missing was the lampost. Let's face it, they were my parents. In their eyes I was a child prodigy, the Sarah Bernhardt of acting. The family and friends? Now that's another story! I have sympathy for them, I truly do. Not then of course, but what does a five or six year old know? My sympathy comes now and also my thanks for putting up with me.
