Manic Monday #5 Challenge – Sentimental Journey

For those that enjoy challenges, and if you like music… you might have some fun with this.  It’s called Manic Monday.  Welcome to the 5th installment!

Each Monday, I’ll present a new song title, and you come up with a post using it by next Sunday. Ping back to this post, so others can read!

If you are not a WordPress user, provide link to your post in comments.

It can be fiction/non-fiction, poetry, subject can be dark, serious or humorous – however many characters you want- just have fun with it!  It doesn’t have to pertain to the song, whatsoever. (click here for past song titles)

The rules are…there are no Rules!  (except using the title of the song part)

We are working our way down through the decades, and we’re in the 40’s! Les Brown and His Band of Renown had been performing “Sentimental Journey,” but were unable to record it during the musician’s strike of 1942-1944.  In 1945, Doris Day provided the vocals and had her first #1 hit.  This song went on to be a famous jazz song covered by several artists through time, including Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra.  It became somewhat of a  theme homecoming song for veterans returning from World War II.  The video attached to this post, is a more recent recording, that Doris performs so incredibly.  I grew up watching Sunday afternoon matinee, reruns of classic movies of her and Rock Hudson and James Garner.  I just LOVED her and the style of clothing.   More song info on  Wikepedia

Use that song title anywhere in your blog post, ping back this post! (visit others that posted, if you want) If you need more inspiration, you can Click here for lyrics
