{MUSIC MINUTE} MURDER He Says! Betty Hutton cries out loud.

betty-hutton-movie-poster-9999-1020246292[1]

Growing up in the dirty thirties, with a rough and tough childhood, our lady crooner has been through a lot more than most have to experience!

Bouncing around from city to city through her childhood gave this woman real tenacity.  Money troubles abound kept her family on their toes, shifting from town to town running away from the Police.

She had a father who walked out on her family to runaway with another woman, and the only word again from him was a telegram alerting the family of Mr. Hutton’s suicide.

Maybe her irreverence to her father helped fuel her fire for this tune.  Betty does her rendition of ‘Murder he says’ in 1943, and we are moved!! We’ve love her styling of ANY song , and we are suckers for her straight-shooting bluntness and of course  we’d love any tune that cries out ‘MURDER’.

Don’t forget: KARAOKE CABARET TUESDAY tonight at 8:30p!! Hosted by yours truly . . .

Wish we had some of these moves! Not to mention, all looking pretty darn shap. Even 70 years later, they still have modern looks with a sporting edge. Love the way you move!

Makes me feel like being part of the cool crowd.

Could we call it ‘American Classic’? Take a look!
