Good-morning, kittens and dawgs! This week three of All Things Vintage and I couldn’t let allow today’s alpha prompt to not include, Oh! My Papa!
This is a cover song of Fisher’s from 1958. The original was first recorded in 1938 (the year after my daddy was born) as O Mein Papa by Erna Lenser, but I couldn’t find it on YouTube. Now, that one would’ve been really vintage stock.
Age is a relative term as one gets older and I definitely don’t think my pops is vintage material, but Oh, My Papa-in-law would fall more into that category. He celebrated his 93rd birthday last month. What do you think?
Do you know what this is?
All of these gadgets open bottles. When DH and I were first married we had Pepsi-Cola opener similar to the Coca-Cola one above, but when we moved from the rental property to our house we lost it. DRATS! I loved that opener and it would be so cool to have it.
There’s something magical about nostalgic moments through music. I’m winding up with more classic vintage hits from the 50s.
From 1954, The Platters with Only You.
Singing Only the Lonely Frank Sinatra from 1958
Another hit from the same year, Over and Over by Bobby Day
