Mister D: Updated – Fixed “American Beauty” and sorry, nothing I can do if you don’t like “Red” Take it up with Bette. She had a blast hanging out with Sammy Hagar who wrote it, and he changed the lyrics for her. They both thought it was funny that Brooks Arthur hated it, but Bette insisted that it be on her Broken Blossom album

Bette Midler sings American Beauty Lyrics

Ronee Blakley wrote the above song. She became famous when she joined the cascade of stars in the legendary movie, Nashville in 1975. It’s an American satirical musical ensemble comedy-drama film directed by Robert AltmanIt brings 26 characters together for a very American movie. Supposedly, Bette turned down the part which was my favorite character, played by Barbara Harris before I even knew Bette was offered the the role. The movie went on to rake in all the awards. Weird. There were reports of lots of people walking out. I thought it was out of boredom, but now i think it might have been over politics. This movie is considered a masterpiece and director, Robert Altman, became my favorite director.
