Songs that Come My Way: What a Wonderful World

I see skies of blue

My music duo Molly and Sunny boy recently recorded this song on a video.

Molly and Sonny Boy (Jim and me) singing, “What a wonderful world.”

The song became really popular after a film called, “Good morning Vietnam,” in 1988.

Today was a beautiful day. After covering ourselves with bug spray because of the crazy gnats, we took a lovely walk up our street.

There are some wonderful houses on our street as well.

This place complements their front porch with nude statueary.

Songs that come my way: “Nuages.”

I have decided to dedicate each Friday blog post to songs that come my way.

Whenever I discover a new song or remember a good song to share, I will post it here on Fridays.

Today we are going to feature a song that I had not heard before, or did not know much about.

A song called Clouds or “Nuages”

It was dedicated to me by a jazz trio because I was wearing my beret at a jazz night last Saturday night.

Me in my beret looking French with wine!

The band leader said, “Here is a Django Reinhardt song for you called, “Nuages,” a French word for clouds. ☁️

Here is the illustrious Monsieur Reinhardt on the guitar performing, “Nuages.”

Marlene and Me

Dietrich’s Star

I am a big fan of German-French-American star Marlene Dietrich.

I like the song “Falling in love again,” so I did a video with hubby here.

One of the most popular motion picture stars of the thirties and forties, Marlene even has her own museum.

Hello Cappuccino!

Cappuccino makes me smile! 😊

My folk duo published this song.

It was inspired by a real-life experience.

I was introduced to a new coffee drink I never heard about until I moved to the USA.

It was called the Cappuccino.

I wrote the lyrics and hubby arranged the music and tweaked the lyrics to suit.

He put the African talking drum in there as well, to mimic the sounds of cappucinno-making.

I used video and photos from the time we were in Las Vegas.

Enjoy this song for free from Sonny Boy and me!
