Pic of the Day: “I need the reason. Don’t say money. Why do this?” “Why not do it? … Because yesterday I walked out of the joint after losing four years of my life and you’re cold-decking ‘Teen Beat’ cover boys. Because the house always wins. Play long enough, you never change the stakes, the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big, and then you take the house.” “Been practicing that speech, haven’t you?” “Little bit. Did I rush it? Felt like I rushed it.” “No, it was good, I liked it. ‘Teen Beat’ thing was harsh.” (20th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “There’s a lot to be said for making people laugh. Did you know that that’s all some people have? It isn’t much, but it’s better than nothing in this cockeyed caravan.” (80th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: “Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower, we will grieve not; rather find strength in what remains behind.” (60th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: “Don’t tell me! You’re from outer space.” “No, I’m from Iowa. I only work in outer space.” (35th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Fate is kind / She brings to those to love / The sweet fulfillment of / Their secret longing / Like a bolt out of the blue / Fate steps in and sees you through / When you wish upon a star / Your dreams come true” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly / Birds fly over the rainbow / Why, then / Oh, why can’t I?” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Thanks for the memory / Of candlelight and wine, castles on the Rhine / The Parthenon, and moments on the Hudson River line / How lovely it was / Many’s the time that we feasted / And many’s the time that we fasted / Oh well, it was swell while it lasted / We did have fun, and no harm done.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Tell me somethin’, girl / Are you happy in this modern world? / Or do you need more? / Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for? / I’m falling / In all the good times I find myself / Longin’ for change / And in the bad times I fear myself.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Do not forsake me, oh my darlin’ / On this, our weddin’ day / Do not forsake me, oh my darlin’ / Wait, wait along.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Remember me / Though I have to say goodbye / Remember me / Don’t let it make you cry / For ever if I’m far away / I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you / Each night we are apart.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Baby, look at me / And tell me what you see / You ain’t seen the best of me yet / Give me time / I’ll make you forget the rest / I got more in me / And you can set it free / I can catch the moon in my hand / Don’t you know who I am / Remember my name, fame / I’m gonna live forever / I’m gonna learn how to fly, high.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Let the sky fall / When it crumbles / We will stand tall / Face it all together / Let the sky fall / When it crumbles / We will stand tall / Face it all together / At skyfall.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “I keep wishing I were somewhere else / Walking down a strange new street / Hearing words that I have never heard / From a man I’ve yet to meet. / I’m as busy as a spider spinning daydreams / I’m as giddy as a baby on a swing / I haven’t seen a crocus or a rosebud / Or a robin on the wing. / But I feel so gay / In a melancholy way / That it might as well be spring / It might as well be spring.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Well, Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa men have named you / You’re so like a lady with a mystic smile / Is it only ’cause you’re lonely they have named you / For that Mona Lisa strain that’s in your smile.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Watching every motion / In my foolish lover’s game / On this endless ocean / Finally lovers know no shame / Turning and returning / To some secret place inside / Watching in slow motion / As you turn around and say / Take my breath away.” ♫ (35th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside) / I gotta go away (Baby it’s cold outside) / This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d dropped in) / So very nice (I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice) / My mother will start to worry (Beautiful what’s your hurry?) / My father will be pacing the floor (Listen to the fireplace roar) / So really I’d better scurry (Beautiful please don’t hurry) / Well maybe just a half a drink more (I’ll put some records on while I pour).” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Ever just the same / Ever a surprise / Ever as before / Ever just as sure / As the sun will rise.” ♫ (30th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Say you, say me say it for always / That’s the way it should be / Say you, say me say it together / Naturally.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “The days of wine and roses laugh and run away like a child at play / Through the meadow land toward a closing door / A door marked “nevermore” that wasn’t there before / The lone-ly night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories / Of the golden smile that introduced me to / The days of wine and roses and you.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “You’ll never know just how much I miss you / You’ll never know just how much I care / And if I tried, I still couldn’t hide my love for you / You ought to know, for haven’t I told you so / A million or more times? / You went away and my heart went with you / I speak your name in my every prayer / If there is some other way to prove that I love you” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “So let’s dance, the last dance / Let’s dance, the last dance / Let’s dance, this last dance tonight.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Raindrops are falling on my head / And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed / Nothing seems to fit / Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling / So I just did me some talking to the sun / And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done / Sleeping on the job / Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel / Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel / Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon / Like a carousel that’s turning running rings around the moon / Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face / And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space / Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.” ♫


Image

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Some day, when I’m awfully low / When the world is cold / I will feel a glow just thinking of you / And the way you look tonight.” (85th Anniversary)
