Good morning, singer

I wake up EVERY morning with a song stuck in my head. A random song. A song that may have been long buried in my subconscious mind, or may have been playing while I stood in line to buy a vente latte on the way to work.

Why, you ask? What does that say about me, I don’t know. But I am sure that something that weird should not go to waste. So I am going to write the songs down, do I little research, and post my ramblings here. Shall we begin?

Good morning, singer. Make me some coffee…

I woke up this morning and thought, Peggy Sue; is that you?

The song was followed by a song called Peggy Sue Got Married, which inspired the 1986 movie by the same name.

The movie starred Nicolas Cage (directed by his uncle, Francis Ford Coppola)  and Kathleen Turner.

Jim Carrey played a supporting role, as one of the guys who sang in a quartet with her high school sweet-heart come husband (Nicolas Cage).

Really interesting to me, researching for this blog I discovered that Maureen O’Sullivan was also in this movie. She played Kitty in a 1935 version of Anna Karenina. Recently I have been ranting about the soon to be released version of the same, which will star Keira Knightly as Anna. And they are not friendly rants, I loathe Knightly, and Anna Karenina is among my favourite novels of all time. I have to find a source for this version of the book, because Greta Garbo plays Anna and that strike me as all wrong as well, though for a different reason.
