Patti Page, Honey-Voiced
’50s Pop Sensation, Dies at 85

New York Times, by Anita Gates

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 1/2/2013 5:43:37 PM

Patti Page, the apple-cheeked, honey-voiced alto whose sentimental, soothing, sometimes silly hits like “Tennessee Waltz,” “Old Cape Cod” and “How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?” made her one of the most successful pop singers of the 1950s, died on Tuesday in Encinitas, Calif. She was 85. Her death was confirmed by Seacrest Village Retirement Communities, where she lived. Ms. Page had briefly been a singer with Benny Goodman when she emerged at the end of the big band era, just after World War II, into a cultural atmosphere in which pop music was not expected to be

Thank you Ms. Page for your beautiful recording of Happy Birthday Jesus. You will be remembered always.

A jukebox bio-musical - - featuring Patti´s songs - - recently opened on Broadway.

This was a lady of pure class as well as a beautiful voice. She was the first singer to overdub her own voice - - which started a trend which eventually degenerated into a cliché.

OK, Patti - - now shine that Allegheny Moon on all of us poor mortals.

The NY Times doing what the love to do-making themselves feel superior by sniffing at someone´s life and work. Silly songs? Let´s say light hearted. As to the "critics" that thought Patti´s songs were what was wrong with music in the ´50s, they were what was wrong.

Right you are #3. "Tennessee Waltz" and "Old Cape Cod" could hardly be classified as silly. "Doggie in the Window", of course.

Danced with her (be still my heart) when she sang at my school´s home coming dance in 1950.

R.I.P. wonderful person and talent.

This is sad news. I was a great fan of Patty Page from my childhood, when I used to watch her weekly TV show. And even as a child I loved her songs, especially "Old Cape Cod." She had a lovely voice. But more than this, she was a good woman who left showbiz to devote herself to her family. Still, it was a delight to her many fans later when she re-appeared (such as on public television tributes to the 50s). If her songs seem silly to some now, it´s only because of their cynicism. The 50´s were a more innocent time, and her music had great appeal for the family-oriented culture of the time. To us, she was a wonderful entertainer and a good human being. RIP with your Lord, Patty.

RIP Patti. I was in 3rd grade when "Doggie" was issued. I loved it. Patti was a class act throughout her career. Unlike Madonna, Minage, GagGaga, Britney and others. God Bless You, Patti for the enjoyment you brought us.

Sometimes silly hits??? The NY Slimes is despicable. They probably think that all that noise out there today is great. Sick leftoid, no taste twits...

Rest in peace, Patti. We will miss you terribly. You were wonderful and now you will be in heaven singing with the angels.

Patti Page was a class act and she showed care and concern for others.

I truly believe she was a Christian and one day I will see her again and get to know her in God´s eternal Kingdom prepared for those who Love Jesus.

How different this is compared to our current President, who flaunts God´s Word and uses people to his advantage.

Patti Page loved people and her smile was contagious - she was always polite and concerned about others.

I am sure there will be many more CDs sold of her beautiful voice. PBS continues to present many of the older singers who had God-given talents and sang from their heart.

Her family can be proud of her heritage. A woman of talent as well as character.

Patti Page had a delightful voice and could sing live - unlike 99% of female singers out there today who rely heavily on AutoTune and other machine-induced effects which make it sound as if they can hold a note. Patti is from an era when female singers were employed on the basis of their voices, not vices.

Farewell, Patti Page.

And NYT, the Tennessee Waltz was not considered a "silly" song.

My mother loved to listen to her. Even as a little kid, I could recognize a beautiful voice singing "Tennessee Waltz."

Few singers today have such talent--or sing such lovely, plain-spoken lyrics.

RIP, Miss Page.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

HealthCare.gov transactions fail

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
