BLAINESWORLD #774, Section 2

Marie in New Jersey:

Just had to hear the jumpin’ original after your post [of Sea Cruise]. Can you believe that Frankie Ford was only 20 years old when he had this hit?! Man, he’s been singin’ this one since I was a year old and it still sounds as fresh as ever! LOL 🙂

My response:

And here’s him in costume . . . http://www.youtube.com/wat​ch?v=ZwhB4XZx-dg&NR=1

Marie then replied:

I forgot that this was another major hit for Frankie Ford, too! 🙂

FRANKIE FORD _YOU TALK TOO MUCH (1960)

I replied:

Thanks for sharing . . . but even better in my opinion was the original . . . by Joe Jones . . .

You Talk Too Much

And the words, too:

You Talk Too Much

You talk too much
You worry me to death
You talk too much
You even worry my pet

You just talk
Talk too much

You talk about people
That you don’t know
You talk about people
Wherever you go

You just talk
Talk too much

You talk about people
That you’ve never seen
You talk about people
You can make me scream

You just talk
you talk too much

[Instrumental Interlude]

You talk too much
You worry me to death
You talk too much
You even worry my pet

You just talk
Talk too much

You talk about people
That you don’t know
You talk about people
Wherever you go

You just talk
Talk too much

You talk about people
That you’ve never seen
You talk about people
You can make me scream

Robin in Pennsylvania:

Help those starving in Africa; help prevent causes of starvation in Africa

Subject: Crisis in the Horn of Africa

You may have seen the pictures of starving people in the Horn of Africa on your TV screens. We are all asking: how can this be happening again? Parts of Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia are facing one of the worst droughts for 60 years, and around 10 million people are desperately in need of food, clean water and basic sanitation.

Join me in calling on world leaders to save millions of lives – today and tomorrow:

http://act.one.org/sign/horn_of_africa/?referring_akid=.5492030.F7WI5z&source=taf

Despite the urgency of the situation, most world leaders are responding too slowly. Immediate aid is essential. Yet at the same time we must not let them drop the ball on long term solutions as has too often happened in the past.

Take action right now at:

Lori in Pennsylvania:

Saw the movie Beginners today. Loved it. Great story made you think. Mike Mills told it in an interesting way. The dog Arthur was brilliant. Highly recommend. I will admit it made me tear up.

***********************

Natalie in Pennsylvania:

THE RAINMAKER was a movie made from a book by Grisham. Did you see it? It was great. I think I saw it in the movies when it came out, but had forgotten a lot of it. Highly recommend it. Also, watch for “Sarah’s Key” and make sure you see it. Also from a great book. It’s only out in selected theaters so I’m hoping to catch it soon. Let me know if you get to see it and what you think
