FOR MADAME M, IS BLISS AMISS?

Ain’t it a shame about M  — as with Lady L, Madam M is musically profligate. So abundant are her charms that I am again tempted to break up such a surfeit of delights into two parts….but two M posts would undo the symmetry achieved by my having ‘two-timed’ Lady L, which re-matched the # of the post with the corresponding letter of the alphabet. Now, at the series’ halfway point, a quick repeat performance would make the previous one seem pointless — even (pardon my off-color French) downright déclassée. Discretion therefore being the better part of pallor, my past limit of three song clips is passé. What’s par for the course now? Play on and see!

FORE!

Our first M drove other gals green with envy, but in a ‘fair’ way (see note on vocalist*):

*Connee Boswell (of classic jazz’s fondly remembered Boswell Sisters) was unable to sing standing, due to suffering from polio since infancy.

#2 is dedicated to my #1 girl (long-time followers of this blog may remember the Molly of whom I speak):

Third of four, May I introduce you to:

For my fourth and final offering, ‘canoe’ believe I’m paddlin’ Madeline home? Naughty girl!

  2. The last one wouldn’t play for me, which is just as well. I’ve heard that song so many times throughout my life I could probably sing it backwards – lol. Loved all the others – especially the first, which was a new vocalist for me.

      Madelyn, I can well believe you’ve heard your namesake song many times because it was wildly popular when it first came out in 1925 (not that you were around then!) and has never completely died out. BTW, there’s another namesake song (not quite as old) titled MADELINE, WHEN WILL WE MEET AGAIN, but much less popular — so much so that I can’t even find it on YouTube.

    M is definitely a big one and you can’t go wrong with Molly Malone or the others here. But this one came to mind immediately.
