PLAYLIST FOR “SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN” (9.23.17)

24 Sep

I’ve been watching with horror the images of the millions of people whose only fault was being in the path of Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria. Will we ever be able to think about rain benignly again the way so many popular song writers have? To distract myself (the largest circle on my personal Venn diagram with a very small intersection with Reality), I spent a couple of hours living in the past.
