“What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve” & December 2017 AnchoredScraps Daily Blog Recap
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On this New Year’s Eve 2017 we are wrapping up the month and year with December 2017 AnchoredScraps Daily Blog Recap. And we are recalling Johnny Mathis with “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve”.  If you are looking for something else to watch on TV this evening TCM is having their Thin Man movies marathon, details in my post.

In looking around at songs for bringing in the new year, I’m remembering growing up getting out my Mom’s vinyl records and playing Johnny Mathis with “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve – it is still my favorite version. In writing this blog post, I found myself dialing Mom and knowing she still has all of her Johnny Mathis albums ask, which album was it on? She knew without even having to look at the album cover! Thanks, Mom!  I’m including an image of the cover from Johnny Mathis, “Give Me Your Love For Christmas” album. It is interesting to note that as his website johnnymathis.com I’m not seeing the cover included!   There are other renditions of the song, including by Karen Carpenter.

By the way, TCM is having their New Year’s Eve Thin Man Marathon tonight. Thank you, Tally, for sharing that with me! I’ve got all of the movies in the series in a DVD collection. Both Wiliam Powell, and  Myrna Loy were included in a blog post previously on  Seein’ Stars Stamps (‘Cinderella’ stamps) back in 2015 here.

If you are new to my blog, each New Year’s Eve I like to include a New Year’s Eve item along with month recap. In my New Year’s Eve blog post two years ago we were looking at “Auld Lang Syne” & Tribbles (& December 2015 AnchoredScraps Recap). Last year my post was on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2017 & December 2016 AnchoredScraps Daily Blog Recap.

Including in recap format is a great way to catch up on any daily blog posts wanting to re-read; also great if during the Holidays some were missed in the midst of getting ready for Christmas.
