  1. Quite something! Not sure what. I think my best guess would be the singing equivalent of those dollies with knitted skirts that a particularly fussy aunt might use to cover the toilet rolls... Jx

  5. And yet, when they break into harmony at 0:19, it's as if a diamond cutter had tapped and broken the gem into perfect facets. Or maybe it's cubic zirconia...

  6. I wonder how many viewers went out after this to be checked for cataracts?

  7. This certainly would have made me put the glass down...

  8. I'm fashioning a tinfoil hat from the stage set.

  9. There isn't one second out of the 175 seconds of this that I don't love. (In all honesty, this is pretty much what my internal life looks and sounds like.)

  10. How sad that they probably had nothing stronger than Midol that ever spun the windmills of their minds.

    1. I'm sure the fumes from all that hairspray had a cumulative effect.

    2. I'm on a Midol trip right now and my mind is spinning me to places I've never been. Places like my unmade bed, with Susan Boyle's audition video playing softly on YouTube while melted Girl Scout cookies disappear from their packaging with lightening speed as I try not to cry.

      Oh wait, I've been to this place many times. Never mind.

    3. Oh, darling, I can so totally relate! Thankfully, I'm currently going through menopause.

  13. Well, late to this party, but all I can add is that it never ceases to amaze me, the lengths producers had to go to in order to camouflage the Lennons' ineluctable fecundity. I'm assuming that for this one, they were all at least seven months' gone. Also, it's not clear, entirely, just how many sisters pop up here - it seems to be anywhere between four and six. Mysteries!

  14. I wonder how Michel Legrand could have let that happened...

    Oh! Yes... ca$h!!!

    2. Hehe... but as we say in French: "Il tourne carré" (It spins square-ly)

  15. Was this the Welk show's concession to the psychedelic 60's, with those blurry metallic colors ? How many cans of Aquanet hairspray went into those bouffant hair-helments ? Very interesting comments above on the possibility of the sisters being preggers, their bodies are smothered under those shiny, sleeveless trenchcoats.
