RIP Andy Williams

Andy Williams, 'Moon River' singer, dies at 84

I LOVED him! Still miss the Christmas specials. I'm a little miffed that the lead for ALL the obits is "Moon River." The man sang hundreds of great songs, including the first version of the Bilbao Song I ever heard, long before I know who Kurt Weill was. I just thought it was a bouncy, happy pop song.

Close your eyes and ignore the creepy picture. Just listen to the song. :)

I remember seeing the tiny little Osmonds on his Christmas special. I love hearing him sing.

He had that easy-going style like Perry Como and Bing Crosby that made good singing look easy.

So much this. It's a gift the great singers had from that era. (Then when you try to do some of those numbers at Karaoke, you find out just how hard they can be.)

I loved him too. I guess the lead's the song everyone knows? RIP Andy.
