Song #2; My ALL TIME FAV! MY MANTRA!

California Dreaming!

What better song to get you out of your winter doldrums than my absolute all time favorite song. The 1960’s and early 1970’s would not be complete without its ode to “California” and this forever California girl places this song as her #1 all time, best ever song. 🙂 Whether teaching my (then very young) children to harmonize to this song on our 2 hour commute when we went to the coast for a day or weekend trip or the million times I played it post 1996 (after our move to Virginia), this song never gets old. It also seems to be one of those songs everyone loves! When choosing which video to show from You Tube, this one stood out by far! My how the world cried when we lost Cass Elliot. Believe it or not, I classically trained in voice starting for one and a half years ages 16 to 17 and was a 1st soprano….. yes, a diva 😉 . I contend to this day that Cass was and is the best contralto that God ever graced this earth with! Also, very underplayed 2nd “Pappa” Denny Doherty, gets some nice solo time. He has a great voice and if you have the “Best of…” any of the “Mammas and the Pappas” you have likely heard some of his other work. Since I am a total music geek, I will let one other somewhat hidden fact out. Though Denny was *not* the father of Cass Elliot’s only child, Owen (a girl), Cass pined for Denny for years and in fact likely until the day she went to Heaven. Though Denny cared for her very much, it was in a strictly platonic way.  :’-( . So take a 2 minute break from the cold and do some California Dreaming! 🙂
