Downtown

I'm on a YouTube kick this morning. Petula Clark's song, "Downtown" was one of my favorites when it came out in the 60's. So indicative of the times. "Downtown" really was where everyone went. The malls really didn't exist outside of urban centers. Anyway, I liked the song.

I just discovered that Petula Clark recorded it in German, too, apparently.

I always liked that song too. It just sounds like she is having fun while she sings it. Like she is right there, downtown.

Yeah. I know you remember when "Downtown" was where people went for fun, as well!

Wow that's neat that it was one of your favorites cause it was one of my favorites as well. Much to my mother's irritation it was one of the songs I loved to play over and over and sing it all the time. Neat to hear it in German.

Awww, your mom didn't like that song? I think its very cheery.

it's not that she did'nt like the song, she just did not like me playing it over and over.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
