Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Tuesday, May 8, 2012


Had he lived, singer, actor, and one-time teen heartthrob Ricky Nelson would have been 72 today.  Gee, Thorny, how should we mark the occasion?

Well, as for me, I'm going to set the Wayback Machine to November 21, 1952:

And just because I can, here's a few of his songs:

Travelin' Man

Hello Mary-Lou

Poor Little Fool

Lonesome Town

Fools Rush In

I'm Walking

My Bucket's Got a Hole In It

Garden Party

And from Rio Bravo, with Dean Martin (and Walter Brennan on harmonica), My Rifle, My Pony and Me

Another talent too soon gone.
