Sweet Pea

This refers to a song by Tommy Roe, who is an American pop song singer and was popular for a number of bubblegum hits in the 60s. I thought this would be a fun way to begin the week.

How Do You Do

Sure hope the sun is shining brightly where you are  “How Do You Do” Mouth and McNeal “Hello Goodbye” The Beatles “Hello Again” Neil Diamond “Hello Sunshine Goodbye Rain” Kelly, Stacey and Smith

Sing C’est La Vie

This refers to a song by Sonny and Cher. They were a loving husband and wife duo in the 60s and 70s. In French this term means that’s life. So it was for them and even when they divorced they still cared for one another. Cher went on to a successful solo career, Sonny went into politics. It was a tragedy when Sonny lost his life in a ski accident.

The very first song that made them popular was “I Got You Babe” “Baby Don’t Go” “C’est La Vie” “A Beautiful Story” “Let It Be me” “When You Say Love”

Still Crazy After All These Years
