a touch of class

Isn't The Story of Stuff truly amazing? It knocked my socks off.

While I seriously work on my plan to consume less and contribute more, let's brighten things up with a bit of glamour.

Oh, and I haven't forgotten about the last installment of my vintage machines series, I just have a few pressing things to clear off my plate before I can indulge in fun stuff again.

So, I present, with further ado, the epitome of style, elegance, and talent, The Three Degrees, circa 1975.

Love the dresses and the hair...I just don't think I'll ever understand what that song is about.

Hahahaha! I remember when the single came out by Richard Harris (1968). Huh? MacArthur Park? Cake in the rain? I couldn't believe that Jimmy Webb wrote this song. His other hits: "Up, Up & Away", "By The Time I Get to Phoenix", "Wichita Lineman", "Galveston." This was a real departure for Webb. Have you ever heard the Sammy Davis, Jr. version of this song? It's a hoot.

Thanks for the memory!

Ellen, I guess we know Jimmy Webb was on something that took him "up, up & away" when he wrote "MacArthur Park." Heh heh.

I continue to wonder about those lyrics but, I do love that song no matter who sings it - the degrees, the 4 tops, anybody.
