LANA DEL REY “Blue Velvet.”    This song is from 1950, and Tony Bennett was the first to have a hit with it.  Lana Del Rey is a currently active recording star who made this version first in 2012, and it was well received.

David Lynch, who made the movie of the same name, liked it very much. Del Rey is a glamorous star who wore an off -the-rack dress from the mall to the Grammy Awards.

The version of Blue Velvet below is from her album Born to Die–the Paradise Edition (2018)

Her latest album was nominated but did not win at the 2020 Grammys. It is very good.

Like most people we know, we are pretty much stuck at  home.  But Florida has opened up, with precautions.  We went with two friends, and the relief to get out was joyful.  It was the first time in about a year. But things are starting to normalize, and we should be back in the Grove in a couple of weeks.

As seniors we were put ahead of most others, but we still couldn’t find a shot after trying for a month.  Finally we had a chance in Feb, but we had to drive 2 1/2 hours to a Publix supermarket in Tampa.    (“Took my girl to Florida and now I’m gonna Tampa with her.”)

Then we had to take the same 5 hour round trip for the second shot.  But we were grateful.
