Ain't No Relatin' Here!
Even tho she was sick, I still think she did a wonderful job on this song. It’s amazing.
It’s almost like my anthem
The soundtrack version of this song is one of my favorites. It has been for almost 20 years when I first discovered it. The ending is outstanding!
I couldn’t believe it when I heard that Bette wasn’t well when she filmed and recorded “Divine Madness” – she’s so dynamic in that show (and I’ve watched it several times now) and in the numbers “Paradise” and “Fire Down Below”, to be able to rock like that the way she was feeling…no wonder she’s the DIVINE MISS M!
It kind of makes me ashamed that I let illness stop me from seeing Bette when she last came my way. She wouldn’t have let anything stop her. I guess I haven’t reached that level of divinity yet. 😉
“E-Street Shuffle/Summer The First Time/Leader Of The Pack” is my favourite part of the show, I like the CD soundtrack version better because you get the whole song. I can never understand why the filmed version shortened it.
Don’t even get me started on the criminal removal of “Shiver Me Timbers” and “Rainbow Sleeves” from the DVD…thankfully, I also still have my old VHS copy. 🙂
