Movie Music Monday, Wartime Classic, WW2, Begin the Beguine, Happy New Year via @PatFurstenberg #HappyNewYear #ww2 #moviemusicmonday

A most beloved war-time classic song, Begin the Beguine was composed by Cole Porter in 1935, turned into a swing by Artie Shaw and band and made famous by Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell. Their legendary tap dance in the movie Broadway Melody surely caught on.

Begin the Beguine  by Cole Porter – lyrics

“When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender,
It brings back a night of tropical splendor,
It brings back a memory ever green.I’m with you once more under the stars,
And down by the shore an orchestra’s playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine.To live it again is past all endeavor,
Except when that tune clutches my heart,
And there we are, swearing to love forever,
And promising never, never to part.What moments divine, what rapture serene,
Till clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted,
And now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted,
I know but too well what they mean;So don’t let them begin the beguine
Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember;
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
When they begin the beguine.Oh yes, let them begin the beguine, make them play
Till the stars that were there before return above you,
Till you whisper to me once more,
“Darling, I love you!”
And we suddenly know, what heaven we’re in,
When they begin the beguine”

Puppy, 12 Months of Rhymes and Smiles

 Puppy, 12 Months of Rhymes and Smiles

  • Puppy, 12 Months of Rhymes and Smiles: is an auditory feast for children, a fun read-aloud for parents, and treat for dog-lovers, young and old.
  • If you have a dog, or you’ve ever had one, there’s no question that you’ll find yourself having a little giggle at this! Whilst clearly designed as a poetic children’s book composed of vibrant colours and illustrations which any little reader would love, it also resonates brilliantly with their adult counterparts.
  • This book is definitely aimed at younger children and will delight them as an adult reads it out loud to them. However any dog lover will also love this book and will no doubt smile as they do so.

    Link to Amazon: The Elephant and the Sheep

    The Elephant and the Sheep: “Beautiful illustrations, a lovely message of friendship and overcoming lifes struggles and of course, as this author does so well, another fantastic story showcasing the brilliance of our furry (or not so furry!) friends.

  • Link to Amazon: The Cheetah and the Dog
    Link to Amazon: The Cheetah and the Dog

    The Cheetah and the Dog: “The moral of the story is that no matter your colour or creed, friends come in different forms and help each other. They are there for one another no matter what. The illustrations are beautiful. They are vibrant and portray the animals and their surroundings perfectly.

    The Lion and the Dog: “The illustrations are bright and depict what is happening in each stage of the story. There are lots of other animals to spot in the illustrations. My daughter enjoyed pointing them out and naming them as I read the story to her. She was sad for the lion but was so pleased when the lion became friends with the dog and cheered up.
