Cocacabana-Saturday 9)

Saturday 9: Copacabana

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here

1) This song refers to the merengue and the cha-cha. Are you a good dancer? 
Not really, but when I hear the music, I am enthusiastic.
2) Dances like the merengue and cha-cha are featured on Dancing with the Stars. Are you a loyal DWTS viewer? 
No, however it is probably the only "reality" show I would watch, if Mr BC would let me.  I enjoy dance contests. but I would not want to endure the chatter that would come if Mr BC had to watch it too.

3) The Copa girl in the song, Lola, wears yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there. If we were going to the clubs tonight, what would you wear? 
The last club I went to was Sam's Club and I wore jeans.  

4) The real Copacabana nightclub was on East 60th Street in New York. It was used as a setting for the movie Goodfellas. Do you have a favorite mobster movie? 
The first Godfather. It is a classic, I also enjoyed the Sopranos, and watched them all. 

5) Our featured artist, Barry Manilow, has unfortunately spent a great deal of this young century in the hospital -- broken nose, face lift, chest pains and two hip surgeries. Tell us about your most recent trip to the doctor, ER, or dentist. 
Wednesday, I went to an orthopedist, finally, about my ankle (I broke it 6 years ago). It has been affecting my interaction with the grandkids, exercise an Mr BC is tired of me stumbling around on it. "Go to the Dr!" So I did.  It is arthritis, (I knew that.) He gave me a different anti-inflammatory, and referred me for an orthotic. I go back in 30 days. I am also scheduled for oral surgery next month, for an implant. When I go for check-ups I get my moneys worth.

6) Manilow told US Magazine that he enjoys nude sunbathing. Have you ever skinny dipped or sunbathed au naturel? 
NO. Never have, never will.  

7) Before he became famous as a performer, Manilow was a very successful jingle writer. "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there …" and "You deserve a break today at McDonald's …" were his. Tell us about a TV commercial you saw recently.
Any thing with dogs in it.  Subaru has some good ones.

8) The Manilow faithful are known as Fanilows and proudly wear Barry hoodies, wristwatches and even dog tags. Do you have any clothes that feature a recording artist? 
No, but I have a Les Miserables hat, that I got when DD2 and I saw it in London several years ago.

9) In 2005, Manilow refused to respond when Larry King inquired about his sexuality. Do you think it's rude for interviewers to ask personal questions? Or is it something a performer should expect because it goes with the job? 
I am not a fan of Manilow, but it would not be because of his sexuality. It is not anyone's business, but he should expect that his fans might be curious. Interviewers should not ask and snoops should not try to "out" him.


  1. Love your answer to #3. Sam's Club! Ha! I hope the anti-inflammatory helps with your ankle.

  2. I wonder if there's anyone who doesn't appreciate The Godfather. And I hope your ankle is better soon.

  3. I'm glad you went to the dr. About your ankle. Maybe some relief is in your future.
    SAMs club?!?! That cracks me up.

  4. Sam's Club is an awesome answer! :-)

  5. Sam's Club! haha!! That's my kind of club. :)

    Hope your ankle gets better!

  6. Darn....I was at Sam's Club this morning. I wore leggings though :)

  7. Arthritis sets in everywhere, I'm sorry you are suffering from it. Hope the medication works for you.

  8. I love the Subaru commercial!
    I posted it on my Facebook page.

  9. That commercial is hilarious! And your answer to #3 is priceless! LOL!

  10. Ankles are tricky. I hope the new anti-inflammatory works.

    P.S. love #3!
