Independent Mermaids, Day 4: Frivolous Friday, Betty's Back & Sing Along With The Weavers!
Rounding out the week by bringing back Miss Betty Boop in another mermaid role - she's not quite as independent here but it's still a fine bit of Fleischer freakiness.
And here's a sing-a-long version of one of my favorite mermaid songs, Keeper of the Eddystone Light. This one's the Weaver's version, and there are a few mistakes in the lyrics, but they were done by a 15-year old Italian, so it's pretty understandable!
I did like the mermaid song Dennis G. Moonstruck pointed out the other day - but I think this one's my favorite 'cause I first heard it one night in Maine, on board the Lewis R. French, a grand old schooner operating out of Camden. What a vacation that was...oh, the lobsters...
But I digress - here's the Weavers singing the song!
And that brings us mostly to the conclusion of this week's mini-froggy-bloggy edition of the Independent Mermaids Film Festival. Not a lot of comments, but lots & lots of visitors, I hope that means folks have been enjoying this rather silly whim in honor of visitors, year-end close & the first week of boat & beach season!
