Well, I think it's funny.
You may not.
Let me know, either way.
This morning Miss 3 and I were at our local Centro shopping centre bright and early, straight after dropping my 6 year old boy at school. Half the shops were still shut and it was pretty deserted. So as we stepped out of the lift, the shopping centre music was loud and clear and it was Key Largo.
I immediatley started singing along because I love this song.
a) I know it's daggy but you can't help the music you love, right?
b) I didn't care who heard me...let's face it...there was no one around anyway!
c) I always thought Kenny Rogers sang this song! Hold the phone.......
Tonight as I sat down to play on YouTube, as I do most nights,
I searched "Key Largo Kenny Rogers" and....
Kenny didn't sing it!
How could I have had this vital piece of information so wrong for so long?!?!
It was apparently sung by Bertie Higgins!
Who the hell is he???
And I'm so glad I'd never seen the film clip until now...
because I never would have liked, let alone loved, Key Largo if I saw this as an impressionable teenager...
PS I hope you sang along, too! ;)
