A Little Nod to Andy Williams

So square.  The sweaters.  The turtlenecks.  Hell, he introduced us to the Osmonds.

Andy Williams passed away yesterday at the age of 84.  He had a magical voice and his popularity was broad.  For a time, he was a star on the charts.  He also had a popular TV show on NBC and, when that was canceled, it turned into an annual holiday show (oh, hell, Christmas show).

He was never super-duper-uber cool.  In some ways that he was a parody, sure, but being square was sort-of his thing.  It worked for him.

We'll likely always remember him for his rendition of "Moon River", the timeless classic that Audrey Hepburn crooned in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Yet, in a nod to his possibly being a "hip cat" (ha ha ha), here's our guy Andy singing "Music to Watch Girls By" with a video that includes lots of clips from different movies in the 1960's.  It's all good for a laugh.
