En Stjärna



Groan... It's the start of another working week, and still no Lottery win in sight.

Hey ho, yesterday would have been the birthday of the lovely Zarah Leander, so let's cheer ourselves up on this Tacky Music Monday with an utterly marvellous duet between two Swedish greats - Miss Leander, and the equally sadly missed operatic sensation Birgit Nilsson, with Vill ni se en Stjärna (which, appropriately enough, translates as Would you like to see a Star?). How camp is this?



Speaking of camp... Just because I can't get enough of dear Zarah, here she is in full "Madame Armfeldt" garb, serenading her horde of elegant safety gays with a medley of her hits:



Have a good week, folks.

Zarah Leander (15th March 1907 – 23rd June 1981)
