December Theme #18

I’d seen Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl (1968) and later What’s Up Doc (1972).
I loved her in Yentl (1983), but what really sold me was A Star is Born in 1976.
I bought the soundtrack and the last track can still make me cry.

I bought this as a single in late 1971, the year before I left school. It was in the bargain basket actually and with limited pocket money, you’d always find me in the record shops browsing through them.
This was a good foot tapper, and a little different to her usual stuff.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I like this, but I think the Linda Ronstadt version is better.

  2. Funny Girl was awesome – but I think my favorite of hers was On A Clear Day (You Can See Forever) – both the movie and the song. 🙂

  3. That song always brings tears to my eyes to this day.
