It's 2010

I welcome a brand new year - with one of my favourite movie tunes...

what movie is that from, and how come i've never seen it?

It's 'Paint Your Wagon' (1969), starring Lee Marvin, Clint Eastwood and Jean Seberg as the leads.

I LOVE this musical western. Lee M. and Clint E. use their own voices for the singing -a bit raw and unexpected, but I rather like it.

Lou, I think you'd enjoy the fun romp of PYW - as well as the fact that the movie points to some real issues of that period of California history.

The reason you've not seen PYW (read: was not 'raised on it) is most likely due to the fact that I didn't own it until about a week ago.

Here's my review of said clip:

C.Eastwood is a CROONER?! Phooey, I hate crooners! ('cept for Tony Bennett) Who would've guessed. I do love scratchy voiced L. Marvin. My only complaint: too darn long...sing it Lee, and sit down!

House Dreams: I love this song so much that I will play it over and over and over again. Then it really is long - maybe even too darn long!
