BEN E KING: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

bek03benekingcut

Hardly a day goes by in our house that we don’t hear a song by Ben E King or The Drifters – that’s how much we love them. And Ben’s voice was magic – sometimes so dramatic and filled with teenage yearning, and sometimes whimsical. Save the Last Dance For Me was our absolute favorite (click HERE to listen) but there was also Spanish Harlem, This Magic Moment, I (Who Have Nothing) etc etc….Ben was fabulous with and without The Drifters. And he retained that VOICE and performed until the very end. Which came way too soon.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
