Move along, nothing to see here...

This is just to note that I've started dating again. I have a third date with somebody this coming week, in fact. I like her. She seems not to hate me, so far.

Am I freaking out a bit? Why, yes.

Moving right along to Music Advent...

So, back in 1996, Deborah Gibson (as she was then attempting to be called) was in a touring production of Funny Girl in the title role of Barbra Streisand Fanny Brice. Alas, the whole thing lasted only a few weeks before the Denver venue canceled its booking and everything went higgledy-piggledy.

But when it was still expected to run for the better part of a year, Deb put "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade" on her sixth studio album, Deborah. (Once the show fell through, she re-released the album, replacing those tracks with dance remixes of two original songs.)

The upshot of all this is that my Music Advent song for today is Deb's cover of "Don't Rain on My Parade." Is the arrangement cheesy? Absolutely. It certainly sounds nothing like Barbra's version. Whether that's a virtue or an indictment is a matter of opinion.

It was my personal anthem for some time, and I'm still fond of it.
