    Acc-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive is a well known number. I used to listen to the Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters version of this on an old scratchy 78 of my parents. In homage my voice is scratchy on this recording.

    So I hear people say the research and exploration is the funnest part I think not for me! lol It's the worst part for me, but I freely admit I'm an odd duck, which I'm sure most of you knew already. I actively dread it for some reason, and not even sure why. But then when I come across something I think is cool I'm all happy, so yeah, I'm a hypocrite. That's what happened here, never heard this song before, which I'm surprised about, but when I saw it was Marty Robbins I knew there was a decent chance I'd like it, and I sure did right away. So I worked this up very fast from scratch here this morning. This is the 2nd song I've done this week that was a Gary Cooper movie, and I've never seen a Gary Cooper movie. lol

    We’re having a sleepover, so we have six kids instead of four. I believe we have found our limit. I had to escape back to the bedroom to get this take. It’s one of this year’s nominees.

    What a mug I am! I posted the video to Youtube this afternoon, but then forgot to link to it here!

    When I read the topic, last night, I was having difficulty imagining how I could approach it with an original. I played around with some of the "Oscar" history and had a kind of chorus:
    "But it looks like uncle Oscar, I really swear it does!" - but that lyric wasn't going anywhere.

    Then I awoke this morning with the line "You deserve an Oscar for how you handled tonight!" in my head (tune and all) and with the help of the muse, I soon had a rough draft of what the person had done that had so impressed the narrator.

    The rest was just blood, sweat and no tears.... The blood being from my gums when I cleaned my teeth.

    So let me set the scene. A rich young person who moves in the highest circles has a new lover. This one, apart from being from a lower class than our protagonist, has ideals. But has he (or she) put them aside for our narrator at the social gathering they were at earlier, or not? Will this be "the beginning of a beautiful friendship" or not?
