I think you are right - no one will post these. I enjoyed them. I even looked at some related videos. I remeber watching the Christmas special with Bing and David Bowie.

Happy OSF. Nice look for the holidays.

Anonymous went way back sista

Great picks. I would have never thought of Doris Day. I wonder if Doris had a Sasha Fierce side? LOL

Revvy Rev 05 December, 2008 08:33

You always stay ahead of the pack. Very creative picks and on point. Definitely Old School.


Great pics. Did you know that Bing Crosby was called the Crooner, because of his smooth voice.
The David Bowie pic was definately before he got funky. lol lol
Doris Day was an old school staple. She also did plays, my favorite was lol lol yes you guessed it, The Pajama Game. lol

I love Baby It's Cold outside...makes me think of last night while talking with my husband...'bout to give TMI ;-)LOL! Happy OSF!

Great choices, It's cold Outside is one of my favorites, all year round. I like the Christmas theme, and these choices are very original.

Back then singers and actors were synonymous, if you act you sing, if you sing you act, that's not the case today.

Well I think you accomplished your the Bing!

Have a good weekend!

Happy WW! I used to enjoy watching those comedies with Bing and Bob Hope. I also had a fond spot in my heart for David Bowie when he played a character in a movie adaptation of a Robert Heinlein sci-fi book. Great off-beat choices for this theme!

Thank you for visiting my blog earlier today. I invite your blog readers to see some photo of a truly FAT CAT!

peace, Villager

Great choices. I love Bing Crosby, somehow I didn't think of him. I remember watching the Bowie/Crosby duet when it first came on back when I was a kid. Really cool, I love that version of the song.

Cool choices. The thing I enjoy most is finding things I wasn't always that familiar with.

Love what you've done with the place fro the holidays.
