Sweet Dreams of Patsy
American Spectator, by Larry Thornberry

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/4/2013 6:11:49 AM

Tuesday it will have been a half-century since the premature death of Patsy Cline deprived the world of one of the finest and most charismatic musical stylists of the 20th century (or of any other century, come to that). Patsy’s many fans, which include me, have every reason to wonder what might have been had she been given a few more decades to perform and record. And every reason to mourn what is surely a considerable loss. But damn I’m glad we had her while we did. What she left behind is a treasure.

That was a very sweet tribute; I hope Mr. Thornberry will make his way to Nashville sometime to catch a performance of ´´Always, Patsy Cline.´´ Here is a link: http://www.nowplayingnashville.com/event/detail/441609951

I loved her when I was a kid and I love her now that I´m old and gray. I still listen to her now. My wife´s ringtone when she calls is "I fall to pieces."

I miss her.

Excellent tribute. I have her greatest hits and play them in the rare times when I´m alone; I cannot tolerate someone talking over Patsy singing. And, yes, a few voices do have that "paralyzing" effect. Elvis and Patsy come to mind.

Her life reminds me of the Faron Young song.
"I want to live fast, love hard, die young and leave a beautiful memory"

Ah! Tears in my eyes remembering the Saturday nights with the sounds of the ‘Grand Ol’ Opry’ fading in and out on the radio while Patsy sang her songs. Names I hadn’t thought of in a long time in this article. Memories of a era long gone…..and truly missed.

Movie was not worth watching. Go to Youtube and watch the Real Deal Patsy singing in person.

There are certain songs that nobody should even try to record again, because the definitive version has been done. Several of Patsy´s songs fall into that category. Sweet Dreams, for example - although Emmy Lou Harris and my wife do the song more than justice. Beyond those three - don´t even try it.

Much appreciated tribute to the Pride of Winchester, Va., and one of the two great contraltos of the twentieth century -- the other is Karen Carpenter. Both departed ladies combined flawless delivery with deep conviction and feeling. I posted a similar tribute to Miss Carpenter on the recent 30th anniversary of her passing, at splashingrocks.blogspot.com ("Remember the Drummer Girl")

She was gifted by God with a great instrument. I have some of her DVD´s. I also love the fact that Loretta Lynn(another great one) named one of her daughters after Patsy.

Just reading the comments here brought back memories for me. My name is actually Patsy and I have had many people ask me over the years if I was named after her. That didn´t happen, as I am only 11 years older than she was. It´s interesting how many people think of her though, when I say that name. She was one of a kind. I was 2 years out of high school when she died. I remember it well. Special Memories.

I get the chills whenever I play some of her songs. Her voice was so full of emotion and truth.

Somewhere there is a guy named Jack from PA that pulls out a photo of Patsy Cline and says she is his first love. Always wondered what happened to him.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

The year that we were married, my husband and I were given a truly wonderful gift: a honeymoon safari to southern Africa. It was an amazing experience. We now have all the magical memories that one would hope to bring home from a safari: the fresh lion kill, the mother elephant tenderly caressing her baby, the warthog crashing through the undergrowth with a leopard in hot pursuit. I could go on (and on and on), but nothing’s more pretentious than regaling people with tales of your honeymoon safari, so I’ll just reiterate once more: completely fabulous.

A thief was forced to stop the car he had stolen minutes before and release the children in the back seat after the a pair of 7-year-old twins attacked the driver with a toy snake. The car was taken from the home of Lucia Lozada in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday as the mother of the twin boys and a 1-year-old buckled in the back seat stood just a few feet from the vehicle.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

Matt Bevin, who is running against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary, has come out with a new ad defending his claimed affiliation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bevin tries to sidestep the MIT controversy in his latest ad by claiming that he never portrayed himself as a graduate of the prestigious school. “I’m a small-business owner, I’ve not had a resume in over 20 years. I’ve never claimed on a resume or to anyone ever that I’m a graduate of MIT. This is a lie made up by Mitch McConnell to distract you from

She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When Oprah Winfrey served on a Chicago jury in 2004, she couldn’t go to the bathroom attached to the jury room unless her fellow jurors sang to drown out the noise. One of the songs they sang was Kumbaya. When Alexis Sanchez used the bathroom in her college dorm, she brought her iPod with her. “I would blast it,” she says. “I would play ´D. A. N. C. E.´ by Justice, and some Maroon 5 song. That was my poop playlist. It had to be a ritual or else I would focus too much on if there were other girls

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
