I have been thinking about Teresa Brewer (see previous post) all week. She reminds me of the fact that every generation has its great singers and musicians. We all have a tendency to believe that our generation was “the best,” but it’s not necessarily so.
My father, who is deceased now, once introduced me to his favorite singing group, “The Ink Spots,” whom he listened to in the 1930’s. I had never heard of them, but immediately fell in love with their romantic songs. One of their best tunes was “If I Didn’t Care,” from 1939. It is the song that plays at the beginning of the movie “The Shawshank Redemption.”
Here it is. Enjoy it.
