  • In the years 50's I like very, very, very much to listen this song Wheel of Fortune. It told me some thing that I feel.
  • Fascinating, instantly recognizable, full-voiced 1950s pop singer who stands somewhere between country, swing, traditional pop and yes,even gospel. In the same league with her good friends Dinah Washington and Patsy Cline - personally I think she is one of the greatest pop singers ever.If you love her hit singles, I strongly recommend her gospel album "I Hear A Word" - its magnificent. Her fans were Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday, Count Basie and Elvis Presley - go figure.
  • Heartbreak music.

  • Last night I dreamt that I heard an alarming sound on the other side of my front door. I opened it and a found Kay Starr smiling beautifully and laughing in a winter coat and white leather gloves, a snowball in poised and ready in her hand. The remnants of the last snowball lingering on the black door.
  • Love her cover of Waitin' for the Man
