As I invited you to share your musical preferences and make some special Friday Breaks by request, I took our dear friend, Adriana’s email as a sign and hooked on to her idea of something fun.
My lovelies, here’s to a wonderful weekend! Chanel’s latest Nail Polish ad campaign took the internet by storm and melted the hearts worldwide fashionistas. Chanel Shade Parade! Enjoy! And click through for more surprises!
As you may imagined, I took the opportunity to seek out and include the song on which the little fingers were cabaret – dancing in Chanel’s ad. It’s Little Bitty Pretty One as performed by Frankie Lymon in 1958. The song is actually a cover of an original composition signed Bobby Day, 1957. However, Bobby Day’s version was covered the same year by Thurston Harris who took it all the way to #6 in Billboard Hot 100. Below, in the same order as written above (Frankie Lymon, Thurston Harris and Bobby Day), Little Bitty Pretty One! What’s your favorite interpretation? (to me they look pretty much the same) Oh, and don’t you think I forgot: it was featured on the original soundtracks of movies like Matilda, Christine, American Graffiti, The Princess Diaries and even Indiana Jones (the last one, with the Crystal Skull). So thank you, Adriana, for your idea! Marvelous! I hope you’ll still enjoy the ad and the songs I linked to it!
