Lunch Break Videos: Some of my all-time Linda Ronstadt faves in honor of her 67th birthday
If I could have found Linda Rondstadt’s Shoop Shoop Song duet with Pheobe Snow that would be in this post because I love, love, love that moment.
Miss Rondstadt certainly is part of the soundtrack to my life – to every decade in a different way. The 70s hits, the 80s big band music etc.
But it’s the moments I most treasure. The second video, Adios, played on the radio when I was driving along PCH on my way to a party in Malibu in 1991 and it was one of those perfect blends of song and surroundings that was forever embedded in my memory. Whenever I play that song, I’m in my 20s again and driving along the coast.
That same year, I’ll never forget the duet she did at the Grammys with Aaron Neville of Don’t Know Much (Adios is on the same album) which is the first video. And finally, The Waiting. It was the mid-90s and I saw her perform this song on Letterman and loved it so much went out and bought her CD Feels Like Home the next day. Played it to death.
So on her 67th birthday, I share these memories with you.
