Manic Monday - Wear

There have been scads of songs about things to wear. Some have turned up in musicals and movies. Every once in a while one will even win an Oscar. One of the funniest of old movies with an Oscar winner about something to wear, 1948's "Buttons and Bows" from The Paleface starring Bob Hope and Jane Russell.



Elvis wore Blue Suede Shoes and Dolly Parton had her Coat of Many Colors. Who could forget the Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Polka Dot Bikini if they ever saw one? Neil Diamond is Forever in Blue Jeans though he might spruce up a little for a Devil in a Blue Dress. If things go badly, there might be a woman in a Long Black Veil. Now If you drop by my place, make yourself comfortable but You Can Leave Your Hat On.



To join in on the fun, visit Mo at Manic Monday.

I just LOVE the way you brain moves and grooves. This is so very Jamie-esk. This was a fun MM for me too - not nearly as creative as yours but still fun.

I pretty much just wear rags, I don't dress to impress others.

A great singalong Monday post. And I so love those old 40s films. My favourite period.

Jamie, reading your posts is so delightful! And playing your suggested videos is wonderful! The strip tease from The Fully Monty is my absolute favorite!! Thanks for the suggestion about the dale blank montage. That led me to write about The Obama HOPE graphic image... :)

Nice to finally come back to the Blogosphere and see that Jamie is still Jamie - yay! Very nicely done on this meme and the best part was that there were no pseudo-Elvis types wearing inappropriate jumpsuits like there was over at Carol's! Nothing like trying to get back into blogging and the first thing I saw was THAT!

They could have taken the hats off sooner. *grin*
