When she put her mind to it, the very greatest of them all. Even when she didn't, still the Merm. I wonder if she's thinking of Ernie B. here?
the older i get,the older she gets.
I'm hypnotized by the undulations of her upper arms. Had sleeves not been invented?
They almost steal the show! Miss Merman was about 57 at this time. Imagine if men of that age wore sleeveless gowns. It would not be pretty.
There's a reason that the fleshy undersides of one's arms are officially called Mermans - rarely has there been an apter eponym.
I noticed that in a lot of these video clips she's wearing dresses that also expose the shoulders and upper chest, and they're not worth seeing either. Just close your eyes, lie back and think of England.
Dear god, get a chiffon scarf in there, stat.
"Leave out the cherry. Leave out the orange juice. Leave out the bitters."Somebody just pass her the bottle! Jx
It's lovely, but I can't help but think that she'd use the same inflection, volume and arm gestures for "Monotonous" or Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
Oh, you know it!
Or anything recorded by Pink Floyd.
