Sisters Wedding Dance

How old am I? Well, you're gonna find out. I have always loved Rosemary Clooney. She was born in Kentucky in May of 1928. She did her best work singing standards for Johnny Mercer and Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, George and Ira Gershwin. She became one of America's best-known popular singers in 1951 with a song called ''Come-on-a-My House,'' which was a huge hit record, and followed that with other novelties like ''Mambo Italiano''.

In 1954 she appeared with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye singing Irving Berlin songs in ''White Christmas.''

In later years she had been appearing in the best cabarets and on concert stages, singing pop-jazz standards that earned her new audiences and renewed respect. She got especially great reviews at Michael's Pub in Manhattan (remember when we hung out with Woody Allen there?)

She was nominated for an Emmy award for an appearance on ''E.R.,'' and she was given a lifetime achievement Grammy award a month after she was hospitalized for lung cancer surgery.

And, of course, she was George's Aunt.

So, enjoy this - another song of hers I really liked - by these two darling sisters . . .
