Random Jukebox – Billie Holiday Edition
It’s getting late, the Dinner Party has run its course and appears to be long done, clean up crews have scrubbed and detailed the Random Thoughts home from top to bottom, and the place seems a bit quiet and empty. All the rowdy guests migrated over to Mardi Gras, and I’m happy to report all had fun with no serious problems, save for a few morning-after headaches experienced by a few of our followers.
Me? I’ll be traveling the next few days. I’ll be scarce around these parts, but tonight I think I’ll pour myself a nice elixir from the bar and toss a few coins in the Jukebox for the evening as I unwind a little before turning in for the evening. Come on and join me. Go ahead, walk over the the bar. There’s a guy in a white jacket and black bow-tie waiting to serve you. Kick off your shoes and put up your feet, or, if you are so inclined, grab your sweetheart and spend a few moments dancing cheek to cheek. I’ll start it off with a few from the Billie Holiday songbook – such a hauntingly soulful voice.
While I’m gone, feel free to throw a few coins in the ole Jukebox and dial up a song of your choice in the comment section below. Anything goes – any style, artist, and genre. I’d love to hear what you pick out. I’ll try to peek in whenever I can to get a listen. In the meantime, enjoy the company of each other and behave. Or maybe not…
