This is a strange thing that happened to me; just thought I’d write a little note about it.
I was in my laundry room, folding laundry and humming the song “You Light Up My Life”, which is not a usual song on my playlist – I probably haven’t heard it in a few years. So I’m folding laundry, and the final Jeopardy question comes on the tv:
CATEGORY: Billboard Hot 100
CLUE: Besides Frank and Nancy Sinatra, they’re the only other father and daughter who each had #1 solo hits.
Got your answer? Mine was Nat King Cole and his daughter Natalie. Although wrong, my guess must have been a reasonable one as two of the contestants also incorrectly guessed the Cole’s as their response. The correct answer, however, was Pat Boone and his daughter Debby – whose only #1 hit was ironically enough, “You Light Up My Life” – the same song I had inexplicably had in my head just minutes earlier!!
PS – I’ve never really heard of Debby Boone, and I certainly didn’t know who sang “You Light Up My Life”. For all I knew, it was Lee Ann Rimes, whose version of the song is quite enjoyable.
