Bette Midler On Discovering Acting

Bette Midler On Discovering Acting: In Her Sophmore Year In High School: “I discovered I could act for a lot of people, not just 30 people, which I used to do when I was a little girl in fifth grade and did improvised shows with my girlfriend. It gave me a lot of confidence, finding out that I could make people laugh and entertain them.” (The Milwaukee Journa Dec 2, 1979)

The March Bootleg Betty Jukebox Is Open!

download

The March Bootleg Betty Jukebox is open to help bring warmth from the chill. Let the music warm your soul. You’ll find rare, old, and new to choose from. Hope you enjoy!

The Months

January brings the snow;
Makes our feet and fingers glow.

February brings the rain;
Thaws the frozen pond again.

March brings the wind so cold and chill;
Drives the cattle from the hill.

April brings us sun and showers,
And the pretty wildwood flowers.

May brings grass and leafy trees,
Waviang in each gentle breeze. Read More

Bette Talks About It’s The Girls

itsthegirlsBG4Singing

From the very beginning of my recording career I insisted on pretending that I was a girl group. I often sang all the background parts as well as the leads, just for the fun of it, as I did on “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”.

It’s The Girls! (2014)

Available in the U.S November 4, UK November 10

On my first album, The Divine Miss M I covered the Dixie Cups “Chapel Of Love”, although I didn’t sing those harmonies myself. I thought it was the silliest, most charming song, and when I pictured myself sashaying down the aisle with my singing bridesmaids in tow, I always fell out. The Dixie Cups were out of New Orleans, and their seminal hit “Iko Iko” is still played everywhere all the time. Jolly, good-natured, except for the part where the singer threatens to set the listener on fire, it is infectious as only nursery rhymes can be. The girls learned it from one of their grandmothers, and it is irresistible. Read More

Hoffman-Midler_-_1977

Q. Doesn’t Dustin Hoffman have a secret yearning to be a songwriter? – F\R.

A. Hoffman has dabbled in songwriting and has written a tune called “Shoot the Breeze” with none other than Bette Midler! Their song is currently being performed by cabaret star Zora Rasmussen, who is a good friend of Midler’s. But don’t expect Dustin to give up the movie screen for music sheets — he has too many projects in the works for that. Read More
