Rhyme nor Reason: Get Happy
At the risk of having my cherished membership card revoked (or, at the very least, suspended) I have to admit that, until the other day, I had never seen the Get Happy/ Happy Days Are Here Again duet between Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. I know, I know... what right do I have to call myself a homosexual? I imagine this 1963 footage is near the top on the required viewing list for all gay men....yet somehow...well... I missed that memo. Which is surprising considering I am such a huge fan of arrow-themed set design. So dear (two) readers, believe me when I say I've made up for this embarrassing gaffe with numerous viewings and I'm pleased as fruit punch to report that this 2.5 minute moment of television magic really does make one feel quite happy or should I say...gay?
