1500 – A Smile On My Face

Another 500 full. As time goes by 🙂

This is the image for yesterday, Monday. I would have had at least another image, a bicycle, but searching for a title, I immediately thought of this line from “Singin’ In The Rain“, and so I had the illusion I’d save time when I take just that and put the bike on my TODO list.

Not exactly so. I’ve spent hours now searching for a version of the song that I both have and that’s available on YouTube. Well, I only had The 3 Tenors from their 1994 concert, but as I don’t particularly like that version, I decided to buy something.

In the end I found Nora Arnezeder together with Féloche, a song used in a TV ad for Guerlain’s perfume “Idylle”. Here’s the original song video. Oh yes, great 🙂

Another version, one that’s not on YouTube, is by Maria Muldaur, a singer I didn’t even know before, and while it’s not my favorite version either, researching Muldaur further, I found a “Live in Concert” album with lots of Dylan covers, and … well, let’s say that I have some songs more now. Here’s a Hungarian site with Maria Muldaur’s version of “Buckets Of Rain”. It’s not from the live album but from her 2006 Dylan album “Heart Of Mine”.

  1. Cute and charming. I like that you put a smile on this “face.” Seeing it put a smile on my face, and that’s always a good thing to do. 🙂

    1. Thanks. I saw “him” long ago, but some images just have to wait and mature. Anyway, I thought it would be a good choice for a happy day 😀

  2. Hey your blog looks amazing I like what you have done with it. I just wanted to say hi and look in on what your doing. Seems I have not had any extra time to stroll to view images as I once did. I enjoy strolling so will have to make more time to do so. Beautiful blog and images as always …..

    1. Hi Deb!

      Thanks. Good to see you again. Yes, things have pretty stabilized since I’ve made the switch from SmugMug/Blogger, and WordPress turned out to be a good choice. Glad you like it 🙂
