Eventually, There Will Be A Post About Divas.... (Not Divers!)

Music is the soundtrack of life. I can listen to new songs and appreciate retros. Some black metal scourge songs were even good too. Heck, I even like polka! But this is not a post about my weird music taste. 

I was listening to the radio just the other evening, and heard a song by Doris Day (the announcer mentioned) but I forgot the title. So promptly I log on into the net (Wikipedia) to look for her songs and wow! this woman had 30 albums and hundreds of songs. As I winnow in her hundreds of song titles (650), I got lost and totally forgot what I was after. All that time I was thinking; gosh, if she had hundreds of song, she must've memorized a lot of lyrics! As a teacher, I look upon such individual highly indeed. And she is still ALIVE (born April 3, 1922)!  

This is what I called a Diva. A talented, beautiful woman with a very long list of achievements.

This is so not true in artists nowadays. They came up with a couple of mediocre albums and then wanted the world to treat them like royalty. One of the reason I despise entertainment magazines is because of the useless contents. Why must I care if this guy smooch with this girl at this gay party? Do I need to know what this snotty bitch wears in her private apartment? Should I loose any sleep if this teen heart throb was ditched by his slutty girlfriend? I might like your songs, but I will never invite you for tea.
Your immoral values can taint even the vilest hearts (I am aware that this conundrum IS possible).

I always told my students (those with tendencies to idolize improper idols) that; You might care for them all you want, but REMEMBER, they don't even know and care that you exist. Pathetic.  

Back to Doris Day and the many deserving ladies we call the REAL divas.... I just hope the younger generation can relate to the greatness and grace of the yesteryears, which are always forgotten.

In those days, they got class :) 

p.s. - One of my fav songs will always be 'Perhaps 3x' :)

Doris Day is one of the greats. Isn't radio a great thing?

I used to watch her movies over and over. She was a rare jewel in the sloppy necklace in Hollywood.

So then I add Doris Day to my tomorrow's song downloads :)
Its true that true quality is dropping down with every gen, like all the new noisy boy bands popping up here and there after the mighty Beatles.
