For the love of Carmen Miranda
Dear Marc, I was once a member of The Sweptaways, an all ladies singing ensemble. And when I say once, I mean it, I only attended once. My main reason to join was to befriend the interesting and beautiful singing ladies. Alas, my lack of talent and ambition told me to stay home the following week, and the week after that.
But look at them! Their lust for life, their adorable fruity headscarves, their we're not wearing black today attitude, it's enough to make me want to run back and ask them to take me back.
They sing tributes to Carmen and Kate Bush. If you know the lyrics to Wuthering Heights, you can sing along with the video below.
