Fats Domino, Fleetwood Mac, Frank Sinatra, Fall Out Boy… Faithfully, Fat Bottom Girls, Flowers On The Wall, F***ing Perfect… French horn, forte, fugue, flute… fun and fantastic finds.

What is your favorite type of film?  I had seen the big music productions from the fifties, but it was when a movie about a group of high school kids hit the big screen I really connected.  The movie was Fame.  I saw the movie several times, read the book and then they did a TV series that ran from January 7, 1982 to 1987 and I would tune in weekly.

I was not a dancer, a musician or an actor want to be, but I did love words and had dreams of writing song lyrics someday.  And I had the biggest crush on Lee Curreri who played Bruno Martelli.  He was actually the first person I wrote a fan letter to… and he actually sent back an autographed picture.  At 16 years old I was over the moon!

 The show did not focus solely on aspiring performers, but kids in high school and all that comes with that too.  But they did have musical numbers and dancing every episode… I loved the show!  And I will share a clip from one episode where Lee/Bruno sang a song I loved, “Be My Music.”  Incidentally it was cowritten by Lee Curreri and Ethan Hurt.

(isn’t he cute! 😊)
