Wow -- I have not heard that song in ages. Makes me wonder what else I have forgotten. LOL

I think you would appreciate my post this week. Good for a laugh.

I'm with Jean... I haven't heard this song in AGES. Cute post. I also posted a video, but it's a bit more contemporary. A bit. I think.

It almost seems quite strange hearing about telegrams and wires! Interesting post with the video!

It's always good to start your morning with a new fact. :) What song is this? Thanks for sharing this Tuesday! When you get a chance, take a look at my HoT.

The Curmudgeon said...

Mine won't be up until later... but I had to note, approvingly, that you picked exactly the tune I would have.

The Five Americans doing "Western Union." Wonderful.

telegrams or wires...something i've never used or sent.

Augh! My computer is sooo pokey today...won't download the song/video properly! What's the song?

Vic Grace said...

Don't remember ever hearing that song before but I used Western Union once when I was living in the US.

Shannon H. said...

You are right! And I have not heard that song in a long time.

Tammy said...

I never even thought of that! Smart cookie!

Karen said...

Cool choice for wire. I loved it.

When I was little I wished I'd get a telegram. ...That's pretty weird, huh?

Very ‘kewl’ take on the theme this week. Thanks for dropping by mine at Small Reflections earlier.
Hugs and blessings,

I was thinking Western Union! Do people send wires anymore? I wonder.

Simone said...

Telegram - there is one that is forgotten.
Down to the wire is the saying that popped into my head but I could think of something to write about that - Thanks for stopping by.

Now If I could just get my sound to work I could hear the song.
