I once played the part of a tree in my one and only school play with my pal Niall, who later went on to appear several times in Taggart and Emmerdale.

Strangely enough no one ever approached me to play another tree.
It seems my bark isn't worse than my bite.

I do indeed know her...! Amanda McBroom is so very very talented...!
I LOVE this song. I also love a lot of her other songs, too....
The most famous, I guess, is "THE ROSE", which Bette Midler sang in the Movie of the same name.
I LOVE that in this song she touches your heart in such a deep way.
Thanks Pat....this was a real treat.

Well that made me cry...

Pat said...

Chef: you are outrageous!

Naomi: I felt sure you would know her. I was listening to the radio today and someone had met her in an hotel where she heard her sing 'The Rose' and said how lovely it was and she seemed to know it so well. Whereupon Amanda said 'I should - I wrote it.'

Sharon: happy tears I hope.

My daddy wasn't a movie star but in my mind and heart he was bigger than Errol Flynn or any other famous person.

Good song. I do know The Rose but i hadn't heard this one, but I was sure Naomi had!

Pat said...

Granny Annie; I'll bet he was a nicer person too.

Pat said...

Joey: I've just been on you tube to remind myself of the Rose and then got caught up in loads of stuff from Stevie Wonder to Les Mis. This recent computer has great speakers so listening is an experience - enjoyed more by me than MTL:)
