This already feels like two lives ago for me. I loved to jump and dance to Belafonte songs when I was a little girl. Shake, shake, shake Señora, shake your body line, shake, shake, shake Señora, shake it all the time... :-D

Same about Al Bano and Romina Power. I dreamt about having her looks.

I sang their songs without knowing what the lyrics meant :-) (likely something about Satan and killing bunnies)

And Eartha Kitt!

I like Chopin and Bizet
And the songs of yesterday,
String quartets and Polynesian carols.
But the music that excels
Is the sound of oil wells
As they slurp, slurp, slurp into the barrels.

Any lessons from such a long life to share? What matters the most and what doesn't matter at all? What not to miss you what to escape? Apollean order or Dyonisian chaos? Before it's too late for the rest of us.
