Linda G. Hill is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Linda says:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!
Fall from the sky, eh? How about “Pennies from Heaven”? That’s an old song but no idea who wrote it, who sings it, and when it was sung. Steve Martin is flashing in my mind, so he probably sang it in one of his movies.
(comment about youtube: Arthur Tracy is singing while Vernel Bagneris performs/ Originally recorded in 1937. The soundtrack version includes additional music (for the movie) arranged and conducted by Marvin Hamlisch. Violin solo (for movie) by Bobby Bruce “Fiddler Extraordinaire”)
I think of the song by The Carpenters, “Close to You”. “Why do stars fall down from the sky every time you walk by. Just like me they long to be close to you.” These are what I call beautiful lyrics, and when they are sung by Karen Carpenter they become ethereal. Can you see Karen up there, smiling down at us?
That’s it from the braincloset this morning.
