  1. Bette Midler
    The Rose
    Wind Beneath My Wings (or desk, per Bill Clinton)
    From a Distance
    Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

    No idea about Bdwy show, not a fan..but is she a Sixties artist really? 70s were her salad days. I sure wish she wld shut up these days, I have no tolerance for performers shooting off their mouths about politics and social issues..sing, dance, smile for the camera but please keep your precious opinions to yourself!

    • Hey Mark,
      First, we’d like to say YES when it comes to celebrity’s speaking. Their minds about politics, they often do more damage to their cause than good!
      Meanwhile you are correct it is Bette Midler, However you didn’t mention any of the many films she has appeared or Starred in?
      Further more, you are correct that she was mainly a 70’s artist! However “The Divine Ms. M got her start on Broadway to rave reviews when she played the role of Zseitel in “Fiddler On the roof “ from 1966 thru 1969!
      Thanx Mark and if it’s any comfort NOBODY got the “Broadway part of the question!
      New question, tomorrow a.m. See you there!
      P.S. I love the Bill Clinton joke!

  2. Well THANX for the device hint! Gotta be Bette Midler!! I was introduced to her by way of the great film “The Rose”; where she rocked the songs (an homage to Janis) including the title song ” The Rose”!! Another film was the seminal “Beaches”, and the song ” The Wind Beneath My Wings” still heard everywhere today! She did”For The Boys” (super movie) and the song ” In My Life” I mean now we ate talking Beatles here!! I like the baroque piano riffs in the Beatle recording! She also did the Super Great ” From a Distance” from “Some People’s Lives”. Broadway was ” Fiddler on the Roof”.

    • Hey “Shoe”: who was the frustrated rocker in the photo??
      And I just remembered that AWESOME opening shot in ” The Rose”! A pan shot of an empty runway with the title song playing and then — very slowly the huge 747 comes slowly into the gram until the plane completely fills the screen…WOW!! AND I remember that you and I saw that film together!!??
      Peace Love….wood

    • Hey Woody!
      Whoa YOU nailed the whole quetion, including the Broadway show! And it appears you are the only one who actually knew the answer!

  3. Bette Midler
    Songs:From a Distance
    Beneath my Wings
