    guy lombardo of course 

    what if you just get tired of things after a while.

    what if you just overthink things after a spell.

    what if you dont wanna share with the whole wide world about your fabulous life and all the pretty girls who kiss you and all the sweet old people who ride in your back seat and

    those who tell you about the time that they moved here from north dakota in 1946.

    oh really, what did you do when you got here?

    i worked at decca records.

    holy shit, decca was the label who didnt sign the beatles so they signed the stones and the rest is history.

    yep.

    so tell, me, if you were here in the 40s did you ever go dancing at the Hollywood Palladium?

    yep.

    omg. i heard that one mr frank sinatra used to sing there with a big band and everyone would dance in pretty dresses

    i’ll have you know that that very same frank sinatra kissed me on the cheek when i met him.

    were his eyes as blue as legend has it?

    legend cannot live up to reality — his eyes were bluer than you could ever hope for.

    tell me more about decca. i love them so.

    well, every two weeks, when you got your check, they would let you pick out 6 records.

    which ones do you remember choosing when you first started?

    guy lombardo of course!

    and when i dropped her off her assistant said, she never talks to uber drivers, EVER

    which was the best compliment of all
