Give A Little Love

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

In memory of Naomi Judd (1946-2022)

1) In this week's song, the Judds tell us they aren't impressed by diamonds or foreign travel. If you had your choice, would you prefer a $1,500 diamond pendant or a $1,500 voucher from United Airlines? I would take the United voucher

2) In the video for this song, the Judds are shown having fun on the beach. Do you have any trips to the beach planned for the upcoming summer months? nothing planned yet

3) Early in their career, this mother-daughter duo performed in clubs venues around San Francisco, where they called themselves The Hillbilly Women. Have you recently been to a bar or restaurant with live music? I have not--not in a very long time

4) They moved to Nashville in 1979 in search of greater success. During the three years it took them to score a record contract, Naomi supported the family as a part-time nurse and occasional model. She enjoyed the flexibility so her schedule could accommodate auditions. Do you like having a pre-planned schedule? Or would you rather keep things loose? I enjoy not being the one to make the plans

5) Wynona sang the Elvis classic "Burning Love" in 2002 Disney movie Lilo and Stitch. What's the most recent Disney movie you've seen? the last show I watched on Disney + was Hamilton
 
6) In 2011, Wynona wrote her first novel, Restless Heart, about a country singer struggling with the price of fame. Have you ever tried your hand at writing fiction? I have not

7) Kid sister Ashley Judd is the only woman in her immediate family to not change her first name. Naomi was born Diana, and Wynona was originally Christina. Do you like your first name? I do!
 
8) In 1988, the year this song was popular, Sonny Bono went from entertainer to politician when he was elected Mayor of Palm Springs. Have you met the mayor of your town? yes, I have--as well as the City Manager

9) Random question: Were you a member of the Columbia House Record Club? I probably still owe them money 😁

  1. I forgot Hamilton was on Disney +. "Oceans rise, empires fall. We have seen each other through it all. And when push comes to shove, I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love!" I have always fantasized about Sir Paul playing King George. That song would be perfect for him.

  2. We watched Hamilton on the Disney Channel the first day it came out. We saw it a few times. We enjoyed it. I love musicals!

  3. #3 I do not like loud music, if I'm at a restaurant I want to eat and enjoy the conversation with friends.

  4. I love having all the Marvel and Star Wars stuff on Disney+. We just finished Moon Knight and it was FANTASTIC. Loved the Egyptian theme, and Oscar Isaacs was brilliant.

  5. Oh yes! #4. When we go on sister vacations (SIL's)...they love to make the plans. I am totally fine with it. They pick fun things to do. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

  6. I guess Columbia House is no more. I should google it and see. Streaming and downloading sure changed the way we listen to music.

  7. Ha! I didn't think about that...I wonder if I still owe money from the last time I signed up with Columbia House? They were pretty trusting sending all that music out to any kid with a penny.

  8. I watched Hamilton too and know it was on the Disney channel, but never thought of it as a Disney production.
