Let's try this again...

Hi Therese and everyone! HNY!
In loving memory to Mr. Panayiotou, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Therese:

Hello Ken and Melinda and Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Matt from Springfield:

LOVE Ds M Rs! Haven't heard this one - was that radio tuning intro w/ the Sex Pistols part of the track??!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Therese:

Yup, that was part of the track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Awesome! :)

Hmm, this song's context seems unusually specific to this year...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Super contribution from that Superchunker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Gaylord Fields:

If the events of 2016 can inspire songs as powerful and angry, and yet levelheaded and hopeful as Mac's, then the despair felt by so many of us may yet be something we can overcome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Therese:

Well said, Gaylord!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Not nearly as well said as Mac, but thanks, Therese.
  10:40pm Hoboken Jack:

Hallo Therese! Taking a break from the Twilight Zone marathon to tune in.
  10:45pm JakeGould:

Oooo… I remember this Sandie Shaw single.
  10:46pm sugarwolf:

This version always makes cry.
Avatar 10:46pm BadGuyZero:

Hello, people of 2017!
  10:47pm sugarwolf:

Hi, BGZ!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Matt from Springfield:

WOOOOO!!! GREAT version of this early Smiths song! Always liked the harder/'82 early alternative feel of the song, but she keeps the spirit of the original while making it her own! Kudos Sandie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello BGZ! Jake! I was a person of 2016, and I intend to *stay* a person in 2017, thank you very much..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, Elaine Stritch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Therese:

Hi Jack and BGZ and Jake and Sugarwolf!!! Happy New Year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Scraps:

Stritch singing Sondheim. Oh yeah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Happy New HERE!
Avatar 10:53pm BadGuyZero:

The delightful Elaine Stritch documentary - "Shoot Me" - returned to the Netflix streaming library a few weeks ago. I believe it's also on Hulu. It's a must watch!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Matt from Springfield:

This was from 2002, so evidently Elaine was 77 at that time :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Tome:

Happy New Year Therese and everyone ! yea you GO Elaine !
  10:54pm sugarwolf:

Does anyone know who Brenda Frazier was anymore?
  11:00pm Hoboken Jack:

Our friend Lee saves Stritch:
By the late ’60s, Stritch was becoming a has-been. Everybody loved her onstage, but offstage she was difficult. She spoke her mind. She fought with directors and fellow cast members. She drank. In 1968, her friend, writer Lee Israel, took her to dinner at Sardi’s and interviewed her for the New York Times. Stritch was, as always, candid. A few days after the interview was published, director Hal Prince called and offered her a part in his new show, “Company.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Therese:

Lee Israel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Therese:

We owe her a debt of gratitude.
  11:07pm Mike to:

Sounds so good
Avatar 11:19pm BadGuyZero:

I once read something about a touring production of "Mame" that would have starred Judy Garland and Elaine Stritch. The two had reached an agreement that whoever was less drunk at each performance would portray Auntie Mame, while the other would get some sleep as Vera Charles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds like that could've been from 1979 (and a half)
Avatar 11:26pm ! I X Key !:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My new year's resolution is to have he best year ever! What's yours?
  11:27pm Marc15:

Like Mary Wing's three of a kind ... four of a kind ... 70 of a kind ...
  11:29pm Marc15:

Judy Garland would have played a great Vera Charles
