Heart Zingers..Saturday9

Saturday 9: Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart (1939)  _ You can find this meme button in the side bar...

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is about love at first sight. Do you believe that immediate attraction lasts?  Oh yes, it happens.  Wish it always happened so the world could be a better place for little kids, and yes, dogs and cats, too.

2) The lyrics mention "a breath of spring" and robins singing. Now that we're deep into winter, what do you miss about spring?  Rain.  We used to get rain all the way to April, and I miss it.

3) Though the world knew her as Judy Garland, this week's featured artist was born Frances Gumm and her family called her "Baby." Does your family have any pet names for you?  Yes. I was LinneMae to maternal grandparents, aunts uncles and cousins, and my brother calls my sister Cessie Poo and me Linnie Poo.

4) Because she was petite -- just 4'11 -- it was obvious when Garland gained even a few pounds and consequently she battled her weight her whole life. Now that we're in the new year, have you made any resolutions about your own diet?  Both my grandmothers were shorter than that.  I've vowed to eat more protein for my hair and muscles, and lose those pesky five pounds for the good of the team!  Go Team Godfrey!

5) The year this song came out, 1939, was the year Garland's most famous movie, The Wizard of Oz, was released. Which of her three traveling companions is your favorite: Scarecrow, Tin Man or Cowardly Lion?  Actually I secretly liked Glenda since she was so magical and gorgeous and kind.

6) Barry Manilow enjoyed Judy's performance of this song so much he did a "dream duet" with her and included it in his recent CD. What performer who is no longer with us do you wish you could have seen in concert?  Joe Cocker.  I'd like to have heard him sing, "You are so Beautiful" in live concert.  I love the song and the studio performance better than the concert versions thouh.  Here's the best one I could find:

7) Judy had a terrible problem with tardiness. Are you usually prompt? Yes.  I really try to be on time, always.  I think it's sort of rude to be late.

8) During World War II, Judy worked tirelessly to entertain the troops. Tell us about a cause that's near and dear to your heart.  The end to all Wars.  Economic, whatever.  All of them.  Just STOP IT will you?!!

 9) The American Film Institute lists Garland as the 8th greatest movie star of all time. Who is your all time favorite actor or actress?  I'll tell it like it is  It's a toss up between Meryl Streep, Bette Davis, and Sandra Bullock.

Guys, well, there have been so many but really, it's George Clooney,  if I add up all his titles in my favorites list.
 Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I didn't think it was possible to love Clooney more, but then he married that extraordinary woman. I think it says so much about him that he could have anyone and this is who he fell in love with.

    I'm cheering you on toward those 5 lbs., too! Go, girl, go!

    1. Gal, I learned more just now, about her from the web. I'm not sure who she even is, though. I thought he'd chosen a long time ago from a group of non showbiz women he met through a matchmaker. This is how absolutely clueless a fan he has in here! He's a favorite of mine because I like his acting- no kidding. "Syriana" and The Men Who Stare at Goats" about sealed that fate for him, but along came "Burn after Reading" and some others. What a guy! She's the lucky one I am thinking! Whoot!

      Oh thank you for the cheering on! This, as I sit here eating half a Cliff bar, an apple and Honey Ginger tea WITH honey. I'd better get better at this too methinks! But, Thank you! ;-)

  2. i agree! end all these wars! they're just so sad and as was said in another's answers, life is too short to have all that hate. i think you're on to something there with more people having love at first sight...let's squelch all this hate and replace it with love. :)

    1. lia, me too!

      Besides, Wars are usually just so much Rubbish! They are never fought for good reasons or at least the ones put forth. Actually there was so much backdoor stuff going on even like in WWI and II that would not stand the light of day that you'd think we'd have hung some of the brigands as traitors. These war profiteers have been allowed to just get more and more bold, sending one unsuspecting generation of Americans after the other off to make big $$$$ for them. It just makes me sick.

      But, I'm going to just promote loving the victims, and forget about those who caused all this. Let them await their fates.

  3. Good luck on the 5 pounds, and I'm with you. Let's just stop all the fighting, shall we, and be kind to one another? Why can we not do that? Go away Greed!

  4. Thanks CountryDew.. I'm going to get them off this year, and not from starving in a hospital bed, either, like last time.

    Yes, totally agree with you. Go Away Greed! Wishing you a great Sunday, with a little bit warmer weather. I know that it's asking too much for Spring to show up. lol

  5. I wish we could stop all this insanity in the world over religion. i think it is only going to get worst, I'm glad that I am in my 60s because it is only going to get worst before it gets better.

  6. I think you are right, Diana. The odd part is that the State department, when it started messing around in the Middle East in the 1920's, didn't see it coming. Are they that stupid or is it the greed of divide and conquer?
