‘Sing’ The Animated Musical Has A Snippet Of Cat Steven’s “The Wind” — MAGICAL.

It is by NO means one of the featured, full-length songs.

It is but a snippet, background music snuck in during a ‘Pool House’ scene.

BUT, it was electric. Gave me GOOSE BUMPS as soon as I heard the opening chords.

OH! Cat Stevens!

Cat Stevens. Cat Stevens. Cat Stevens.

What a WASTE. What a SHAME.

I grew up, in London, at the same time as Donovan and The Cat. I got to see Donovan (seated next to his beloved (actual) Aunt), but, alas, never The Cat.

But, I was a DEVOTEE.

Thought he was God. I always so venerated him for his talents and looks. I so wished I had 1 billionth of his looks — so that I might pull one or two chicks.

What a SHAME. Why? Why? Why?

The Wind” is from his 1971 album “Teaser and the Firecat“. I owned it as I did all of his albums up to the 1975 ‘Numbers’.

I wonder how many people watching “Sing” recognize the song. Know the name.

To me, this snippet, which was probably no more than 20-seconds was the HIGHLIGHT of what was a very good (and I plan to watch it again) movie.

Just wanted to share with you and give you a heads up.

Founding Father Benjamin Franklin’s 311th Birth Anniversary — In Lieu Of Google Doodle.

It is hard to credit BUT there has yet to be a Google Doodle for Benjamin Franklin!

Go figure.

Ditto as that for Alexander Hamilton.

Yes, I appreciate that Google wants to remain apolitical when it comes to its Doodles but the “Founding Fathers” aren’t exactly what you would class as political.
