Now I don't know what happened to the the svelte and comely A and A, but B and B, the two responsible for what I once considered musical dreck, must have gone on to become multi-millionaires. The movie's definately a feel good film and whoever strung the story line between the songs should be given an award. As should Meryl Streep who was simply priceless in the movie...and she could sing:
And she did get an award. Meryl Streep won UK's National Movie Award for Best Actress. And who won a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor? Her screen buddy Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan.

I remember seeing this on Red Skelton's TV show in 1964! Red Skelton and The Rolling Stones are an odd pairing but Tell Me (You're Coming Back To Me) is a fine example of the bluesy music the Stones were doing at the time. This is my favourite period of the Stones, the early years prior to Brian Jones' death in 1969.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
(No kidding, all of the above is true...) OF COURSE, TOO MUCH WATER MAY HAVE STRANGE SIDE AFFECTS.

“What happened?” says the doctor.
“Well,” the old man starts, “I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then her left — nothing. Then she tried with her mouth, first with her teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing. We even called Evelyn, the lady next door, but still nothing.”
The doctor bursts out, “You asked your neighbor?”
“Yep, No matter what we tried we couldn’t get that damn jar open.”

Rupert Holmes is 62 today. I'd say happy birthday, but I wouldn't mean it. Holmes is the guy responsible for 1979's nauseating "The Pina Colada Song", otherwise known as "Escape". He also sang "Him". Not sure which is worse... Boy, the 70s turned out some horrible dreck!
