I asked someone how to pronounce Marlene Dietrich's first name, because I thought I'd been saying it wrong all this time. Turns out I was!! Did you know her name is pronounced this way? I also never heard this song before, so it was a double bonus.

No, I didn't know that—I'd always pronounced it "Mar-leen." That's a beautiful singing voice.

I have been pronouncing it Marlaynuh! Well, in my head of course. I probably never have said her name in audible conversation. 😄

Have you heard this song by Reba? It's called Fancy.

No, I haven't heard that one. Some dark lyrics there!

Here's an interesting one that I only just heard today. Have you heard it? The Thing.
It's by Phil Harris. If you don't know what he's most famous for by name, maybe you'll recognize his voice.
