One of the “cult like” movies of the past was Ferris Bueller’s Day Off… very funny movie with several great memorable lines.
My friend Mark Young, publisher of Baby Boomer Talk Online, reminded me of the “Twist and Shout” scene recently that was great fun to watch. The scenes of the people in the crowd are hilarious as several folks dance while Ferris sings on stage.
Check out this scene…

She just didn’t look like a singer. She looked like someone’s little sister who would never dream of getting up on a stage and singing a song.
Leslie Gore could belt out a song. In fact, she had a string of hits in the med 60’s that all Boomers will remember. Gore still sings and records to this day.
Remember “It’s My Party”?…

He once was a part of the Beach Boys. He once had his own variety show on TV. For a time he was a hell raiser and drank too much. But the man could sing.
Watch him sing way back when on “Midnight Special”. By the way… where the heck is he now?

We Boomers remember his TV entertainment show from many years ago. It was always fun to watch (especially his Christmas Show). What I remember most about Andy Williams was how he sang “Danny Boy”… stunning.
Listen to this classic…

I found this tribute to Brian Wilson, the creative genius behind the success of the Beach Boys, held at the Kennedy Performing Arts Center a few years ago.
A few Beach Boys are songs sung by other groups on stage that gets this high powered audience to stand up and sing along with the music. Great fun to watch. Check these out…

Joan Baez has one of those pure, clear, beautiful voices that sounds good even without much musical backup.
Enjoy this classic song from a current Boomer when she appeared on Midnight Special back in the 70’s…

Remember the eerie song Timothy? The lyrics gave you the creeps but it was a great tune. Check out these “Buoys” as Boomers still singing their hit record.
I’ll never forget the line in the song that says “God… what did we do?”
