The Soundtrack For The Baby Boomer Generation

Step back to a time when singers were as bright as the stars in the heavens
and the music they sang was really swingin'. Stacks of wax to fit every occasion!

This is just a short Patti Page followup post to let everyone know what's going on here at Music For Every Mood. A few weeks ago, a huge thunderstorm swept through my area and lightning struck and took out my computer. (And several others all along my block!) I finally got a new one and returned to the internet, but I've still got some catching up to do. For now, maybe this lovely song by Patti will help tide you over until I can get some new things up.
This song is the flipside of a record I've already posted, here, but this one has such a nice guitar part that features throughout, I decided to post it, too! If you didn't know that I play guitar in a band, you might not know why I like the guitar so much in music. But, that's not the only reason this song is good. Patti delivers it with so much confidence that it grabs you and pulls you in to liking it the very first time you hear it. Sometimes, certain uptempo songs like this do things like that! So, please enjoy Patti Page singing A Poor Man's Roses, because I certainly do and I think you will, too. And we all know what a great taste in music I have! (Wink, wink!)
