Today I come to you with such a profound sense of struggle and disappointment. I had not one, but TWO classic, genius, superb duets in mind to post today, both of which I would have dedicated to my sister, with whom I ROCKED THESE SONGS (have I mentioned that I love Karaoke...and singing into hairbrushes...and terrifying fellow drivers with my animated car-singing?). Alas, it was not meant to be. All the versions I found on youtube were sadly lacking in both visual and audio quality. Also remarkable was the fact that the one duet in particular, my sister and I sang with much greater gusto than the chanteuses on the videos. I have not given up! I will look for them again and try next week. Until then you can wait with baited breath, spending sleepless nights wondering what songs I might have been meaning to show you.....ooooh the suspense!
However, in the meantime, here is an exceptional track. Several good things about this: the vocals are so fun and pretty. The dresses are astounding. The message to young single women is outrageous. And I can vividly recall my dear friend Jess and 3 other lovely gals from our Senior high youth group doing an "Air Band" to this version of this song, taffeta included.
So without further ado: Wishing and Hoping.
