Happy Birthday, Patsy Cline


You gave us so many beautiful songs in such a short time.

In only 30 years your memorable voice
gave us classics such as

I Fall to Pieces

Crazy 

Walkin' After Midnight

She's Got You

and my personal favorite, Sweet Dreams of You.


I often indulge in the "what ifs" about you, Patsy.

What if you had driven home on March 5, 1963
instead of flying?

What if the pilot had heeded bad weather warnings?

What if........

Today I will listen to you sing and then I will drive
a few miles and slowly pass by your home.

And maybe fall asleep tonight with your
Sweet Dreams playing in my mind.

Happy Birthday, Patsy,
we miss you!

  2. The only song I know of Patsy Cline's is 'Crazy', and when I first heard it as a teenager, I remember immediately being struck by her rich, full-bodied voice, which was layered with strength and determination, despite the desperate words she sometimes sang.

    Thanks for this wonderful tribute, Dewena!
