Hello, Dear Reader. It’s late morning here in west-central Florida on Friday, November 19, 2021. It’s a dark and cool autumn day. Currently, the temperature is 74˚F (23˚C) under cloudy skies. With humidity at 87% and the wind blowing from the northeast at 9 MPH (14 KM/H), the feels-like temperature is 73˚F (23˚C). Today is going to be a wet day; the forecast calls for light rain and a high of 78˚F (26˚C). Tonight, skies will be mostly cloudy. The low will be 68˚F (20˚C).

I don’t have any personal news today, and it is Friday, so I think I’ll share some of my favorite songs and compositions – from various genres –  to get this last weekend before Thanksgiving started.

So, as they say inCajun French, “Laissez les bon temps rouler!”

  1. The Night Chicago Died – Paper Lace
  2. Just the Way You Look Tonight – Frank Sinatra
  3. Downtown – Petula Clark
  4. Perhaps Love – John Denver & Placido Domingo
  5. Goodnight Saigon – Billy Joel
  6. Never on a Sunday – Connie Francis
  7. On the Beautiful Blue Danube – Johann Strauss II
  8. A Bridge Too Far – Main Theme – John Addison
  9. Superman – Prelude & Main Title – John Williams
  10. Star Wars – Princess Leia’s Theme – John Williams
