Madeline Kahn — You’d Be Surprised! [YouTube]

A friend posted this on Facebook. Thank you, Sally.

Madeline Kahn was unique and I can’t think of her equal today. Let her divine rendition of ‘You’d Be Surprised’, sung in 1988 for the 100th birthday celebration for Irving Berlin, take you charmingly into the weekend.

    Terrific! When I think if Irving Berlin, I love the flow of patriotic songs: Irving Berlin did not like our National Anthem. He thought “The Star Spangled Banner” was far too difficult to sing. Therefore, he wrote “God Bless America”. Woody Guthrie did not like Berlin’s “God Bless America”, so he wrote “This Land is Your Land”. One song inspires the next. Thank you, Irving Berlin.
