". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

The Roches

A commenter on my last post reminded me of a musical group that I had not thought of for a while. I have not followed the Roches (pronounced like the insect) throughout their career, but we do have a CD of theirs from a while back. If you are a mom, or you have a mom, or you have someone in your life who is like a mom, I think you will love this song as I do. I can't embed the video, so you will have to follow the link to listen. It was a tad slow loading on my computer. If the video gets stuck during play, you may want to hit the pause button (looks like quotation marks) and wait a minute or so to give the entire video time to load. To restart play, hit the pause button again.

That's awesome, dear. Thanks so much for finding this recording. It's cool to see the Roches singing this song 20 years later....and still doing it so well. (Clearly they were playing along with trax, but they did appear themselves to be live. Too bad the video was just a hair out-of-sync with the time. But there were enough differences w/ the record to confirm this as a fresh performance.)

Too bad that song never got more airplay. It really is the best of in contemporary folk-art music.
