Stupid Cupid

Thursday, January 15, 2009



Not trying to bash the looming holiday, my issues with cupid are strictly between us (...and he knows what I mean). I just wanted to share sharp Connie Francis and her delightful ‘Stupid Cupid’ (1958). Please click *HERE* to listen and download.

Tell me if you like it! :)



Connie singing ‘Tweedle Dee’:
(Wish I could do my hair just like that)

I've been a huge Connie Francis fan for as long as I can remember - "who's sorry now?" and "everybody's somebody's fool" are two of my favorites. thank you for this delightful reminder!

~I love both of those songs too dear Asherette, there's a great video of her on youtube singing 'Who's sorry now' to a clown putting his makeup on in front of a mirror. I'll send it to your myspace :)

~I was addicted to Paper Dolls too dear Francesca! Mine were all store bought though, they would keep them on the magazine racks at the super market next to the fashion magazines. That must have been so nice that your mom would make them for you! You inherited her artistic abilities... that's so great! :)

This paper doll is amazing! I love paper dolls in general, but this one is particularly adorable. I'd just like some of her dresses! =)

Connie Francis! I love that photo of her with the sailors. They don't do studio shots like that anymore do they? It's a shame....and would you just look at the length of paper Connie Francis' legs! Wow!

As always - a delightful read Gabbi! Thank you!

Gabbi said...

~On my way there now dear Mary, Thank you! :)

~You're right Sam! Those legs were how the men perceived her I'm guessing? :) Thank you, happy weekend!xoxo
