Lunch Break Videos: Celebrating Linda Ronstadt’s 68th birthday with some of her signature tunes
If I’m short on time, it’s not a good idea for me to go exploring YouTube in search of Linda Ronstadt videos to post because I end up spending a good hour watching all kinds of gems then trying to narrow it down to three or so.
On the occasion of this great singer’s 68th birthday, I’ve settled on this trio of performances – the first of which is one of her early big hits called Long Long Time which in my teen years, I played again and again when I fell in unrequited love with a straight boy.
Yeah, really, would be there on the floor of the living room, giant headphones on, and wallow.
Anyway, enough about me! This is about Linda and the other two videos I selected are her huge 1977 hit Blue Bayou and her appearance with Smokey Robinson that includes What’s New and a duet with Smokey on Ooh Baby Baby.
