    […] I am no stranger to light and dark sides, haha. My second reaction was recalling Eva’s “Old and New” post from a few themes back– I thought I’d take a Kate-friendly approach to that for […]

    Hard to top Grease for “You’re The One I Want”. 🙂

      Yes, but I do believe Julia Stone has done it with her unique interpretation–depending on the mood your feet are in, of course. Do you want to footloose fan dance or make a serious lover’s slow dance statement? Hmm?! smirk smirk…..

    Clever. Very clever. 🙂 New Years resolution for myself: I resolve to actuallythink more instead of scrambling around inside my head. 🙂 Happy New Year!!

    I say it now in case I loose my internet connection again (it was lost from 11:58 PM yesterday until 9ish AM today. And there are some WP glitches going on, probably upgrades for the New Year which will (maybe) straighten out soon. For the time being I can only acess “like” via the reader. So Like Like Like and I’ll click the Like when I can. Hi Eva 🙂 🙂

      Never mind the”Like” button, Bear. Your words are plenty.
      -What? Less scrambling around? But isn’t that half the fun? The scrambling that is? I guess that depends on what it leads to. Hmm.
      Hopeful New Year to you, Bear. 🙂

    What fun! I loved this idea of the new and old versions of songs. It made me realize this whole out with the old, in with the new thing needs some balance. It’s not either or. Treasure the past and embrace the future. I love all of these selections: the contrast, the similarities, the possibilities for interpretation depending on the moment that a song is performed. Thanks, Eva!

      Oh the possibilities there are, Deborah. Infinite in their variety. I hope you danced with Grease. 🙂

        What a lovely thought, Eva. Didn’t do it yet, but I have a Dancing post coming soon, along with a plan to make dancing a reality in my life. 🙂

    Thank you very much for posting this! I chose “You’re The One That I Want,” by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta!

    I wish you a very Happy New Year and enjoy!
