Here's a live performance of her one tune to crack the Top 40 in the USA.. Go to Youtube and get to know her... Call me corny..BUT I LOVE melodramatic..crescendo stuff like this...Enjoy!!!
  8. Eric/Celine/Ambivalence

    I found all your comments about Celine Dion's over-the-topness...ALL so on target...The old American Idol contestants' tendency to oversing... BUt at least Celine's beats THIS...
  9. Eric/Celine/Ambivalence

    For the 1,00,000th time I read about "All By Myself" by Celine Dione being some female celebrity's favorite..."I got the blues...and I'm gonna indulge myself" song. I get it..Eric made a FORTUNE on Celine Dione's version... If I'm not mistaken...She was THE biggest singer in the world when she released it back when albums by superstars sold millions... Still.. If it was me..(I have no idea how Eric feels...perhaps he's more pragmatic than me)..I'd have mixed feelings...'cause Eric did the definitive version.. Anyhoo..the best record I ever heard about the dilemma OF GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS was this Sam the Sham lost hit...Enjoy...Ira..
  10. So again...Now I quote the great Jewish Prophet Neil Diamond...(who wrote this great Monkees tune).. Should I consider this piece of advice when evaluating relationships......?
  11. Mary Ellen...I always joke that rather than quoting bible or great philosophers...I quote the true geniuses like Ringo...("It Don't Come Easy") and of course....at the end of EVERY workday in the NYC public school system...the final bell would ring in my particular rock quarry...and my lips would softly quote Dr. F. Flintstone...
  12. James..I'm with you...It doesn't hurt...It gets tiring...ya feel like a schmuck for having extended yourself...but it REALLY ain't that hard once you realize it...you do just move on.
  13. Ya know as Dr. Ringo Von Starr so wisely said.. in life..."It Don't Come Easy".. I've actually dropped a few friends... I'll tell you why.... We all have friends who right now might be going thru something worse than we are. Thus..it's appropriate for us to be proactive and call more often to ask them how they're doing.. But ya know..if they NEVER contact us to ask us.." how are you"...that's not O.K. One of the nice things about gettin' older...There's just some shit ya don't have to deal with anymore..."And That's Alright by Me Tonight"-B.Springsteen! (BTW...This has NOtHING to do with anyone on this site..It's just something I think about...ALL relationships require some give and take...and we all have friends who forget that !)
  14. Caught Burton Cummings lastJuly 4th in A.C.....The man is great...definitely has NOT become "Undun"" with the passage of time.
  15. Little Struggles!

    Folks...I appreciate your support....I was tongue-in-cheek...I LOVE life's little ironies...BTW...Happy Easter...Happy Passover to all of you...
