Mae West. I couldn’t pick a favorite song, so I’m posting two. She really wasn’t a very good singer, was she? Not super pretty either, if you ask me (which no one ever did). She just had such great stage presence- she was a very glamorous lady.
I’m making a paper doll- I had intended to make it downloadable to go with this post, but it isn’t done yet. Almost.
This song is “Easy Rider,” and was the first thing I ever heard of her. A woman lamenting that her favorite jockey is no longer around, and now she keeps losing money. Keep it classy, Girl. I love it.
