The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 165
Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do. Sometimes I feel that each song here is a little personal voyage for me on a vast and beautiful ocean of musical memories. Thank you so much for joining me. I really appreciate your company.
“The Owl and the Pussycat” – Edward Lear
“The Owl and the Pussycat” is a nonsense poem by Edward Lear, first published during 1871 as part of his book Nonsense Songs, Stories, Botany, and Alphabets. It has been set to music many times over the years. This version comes from Donovan’s 1971 album HMS Donovan. I often recite this poem to my cat while she is sitting on the window sill watching the birds.
