SINGING SATURDAY CHALLENGE
Music is such a big part of my life. It can stun you with emotion, wake up the funny bones, cause involuntary jitterbugging, plunge deep into your soul. It can be cathartic or uplifting and truly amazing. I love any music that is played well, with real instruments and genuine singers, so it is impossible for me to pick favourites. Sometimes a song transports you to a memory or you learn something new about those you love, as this song by Irving Berlin showed.
I first heard this song by the Puppini Sisters. When I played it for my parents, I had no idea it would flash back to a fond reminiscence…When Dad first married Mum, he and Mum’s brother dressed up and sang Sisters for Mum, her Sister and their Mother and Father.. Apparently it was hilarious. I’d love to go back in time to see it. Mum and her sister are still close today.
Here is Rosemary Clooney (George’s Aunt) and Vera Ellen singing it in the movie, White Christmas.
There were never such devoted sisters,
Never had to have a chaperone, no sir,
I’m there to keep my eye on her
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrived from rome
She wore the dress, and I stayed home
All kinds of weather, we stick together
The same in the rain and sun
Two different faces, but in tight places
We think and we act as one
Those who’ve seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up, but no one can
Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister
And lord help the sister, who comes between me and my man
