November 13 – Wednesday – Gigi Cast Album

Does it bother anyone else that Leslie Caron movies like Gigi and Lili center around pedophilia? In both, she was a young teen pursued by men twenty or so years her senior. The whole “Thank Heaven for Little Girls” thing creeps me out, and the old coot Maurice Chevalier smirking through the song – ick. However, Louis Jordan was my one French crush. Ooh la la.

I don’t know why I have the Gigi album and not Bye Bye Birdie, which is the only show tune album I regret no longer having. Well except for Oklahoma. And maybe Music Man.

You know, I came this close to not exercising and pretending I had. And when I decided I needed to be truthful and was about to drop the needle on Gigi, I thought I could exercise to Ram and use what I had already written about Gigi. I’m kind of glad the good shoulder won out. I’ve actually seen the movie so many times it was a fun workout, and “The Night They Invented Champagne” really had me hopping. Besides, Max likes it when I work out and it gives us quality time together.
