ABC-Wednesday

Round 21 – R

 

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today I want to introduce a Dutch Lady who has earned the title of being the greatest Jazz-singing artist The Netherlands has had so far. She was born in Rotterdam on december 21st 1924 and passed away on july 28, 2013. She often performed with her husband who was a wonderful musician as wel. Her name is Rita Reys.  I could tell al lot about her but you can all read it HERE

So without further… wishing you lots of joy listening to her… the song I’ve chosen is very appropriate for the time of year and one of my favorites by her also:

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!
♫ M e l ☺ d y ♫

 

21-Q by Roger

In English, most question words start with the letter W: who, when, where, why. Even how contains a W.

But I took high school French several decades ago, and now my daughter is likewise studying the language. I recall that the question words often with the letter Q.

quand -when

qui – who/whom

quoi – what

quel or quelle + noun – what/which

qu’est-ce qui – what (subject of the verb)

The word for why contains a Q – pourquoi

Here are some QUESTION songs:

13 Questions– Seatrain (1970), produced by Beatles producer George Martin. Went to #49 on the Billboard charts in 1971, it has a bit of the feel of the band Chicago.

Questions 67 and 68 – Chicago (1969) ne the Chicago Transit Authority, until the transportation entity objected. Went to #71 on the Billboard charts in 1969.

Question – the Moody Blues (1970). Went to #21 on the Billboard charts in 1970.

Here’s a question: why did it take until the Class of 2018 for the Moody Blues to even get nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? YOU can vote once a day for up to five of the 19 nominees HERE until December 5, 2017!

From Question, written by Justin Hayward:

Why do we never get an answer
When we’re knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war?

‘Cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution
That is burning in its greed
