Video: Divine Madness – Bette Midler Interviewed On Nightmoves TV Show Australia By Jon Peters

Bette Midler promotes her new movie, Divine Madness in Australia. She’s interviewed by Jon Peters. I wonder if that’s the same Jon Peters Barbra Streisand used to date. Boy, was he a bad boy and a character.


Nightmoves was an Australian weekly late-night popular music series, hosted by Melbourne rock DJ Lee Simon. The program featured music videos from around the world, studio and location interviews with local and touring acts, and film reviews by noted Melbourne critic Ivan Hutchison. In later years the series presented a number of hour-long in-concert specials featuring leading Australasian acts such as Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, and Split.Enz, and a number of these were recorded in stereo and simulcast in FM stereo on local rock stations in each capital ciry. The original series theme was Bob Seger’s eponymous song, but this was later replaced by an excerpt from Steely Dan’s “Parker’s Band”. The series was produced and broadcast from the studios of Channel 7 in Melbourne, and was shown on most Seven Network stations. Sadly, although the series.chronicled one of the most vibrant periods in Australian rock, much of the series was broadcast live, and few if any master tapes have survived. A DVD compilation of the series was issued in the 2000s, but this was largely sourced from surviving domestic off-air VHS recordings of the show.

Video: Is Bette Midler Satanically Inspired? – Pastor Bob – Mister D: Or How BetteHeads Became Satanists LOL

Remember that song “God is watching from a distance?” by Bette Midler

From a distance the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight
From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land.

From a distance we all have enough
And no one is in need
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease
No hungry mouths to feed
From a distance we are instruments
Marching in a common band.

God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us from a distance. Read More

    Video: MARTHA (Tom Waits) by Sam Harris as “Tom Frost” (Bette Midler’s version included along with a snippet of Rolling Stone talking about the performance.)

    Sam Harris sings Martha

    Mister D: I just love the way Sam Harris covers songs associated with Bette Midler. You can  tell he is very influenced by her. And it shows.

    MARTHA
    Music & Lyrics, Tom Waits

    Operator, number please, it’s been so many years
    Will she remember my old voice while I fight the tears
    Hello, hello there, is this Martha, this is old Tom Frost
    And I am calling long distance, don’t worry ’bout the cost
    Cause it’s been forty years or more, now Martha please recall
    Meet me out for coffee, where we’ll talk about it all

    And those were the days of roses, of poetry and prose
    And Martha all I had was you and all you had was me
    There was no tomorrows, we packed away our sorrows
    And we saved them for a rainy day

    And I feel so much older now, and you’re much older too
    How’s your husband, and how’s your kids,
    you know that I got married too
    Lucky that you found someone to make you feel secure
    Cause we were all so young and foolish, now we are mature

    And those were the days of roses, of poetry and prose
    And Martha all I had was you and all you had was me
    There was no tomorrows, we packed away our sorrows
    And we saved them for a rainy day

    And I was always so impulsive, I guess that I still am
    And all that really mattered then was that I was a man
    I guess that our being together was never meant to be
    And Martha, Martha, I love you, can’t you see

    And those were the days of roses, of poetry and prose
    And Martha all I had was you and all you had was me
    There was no tomorrows, we packed away our sorrows
    And we saved them for a rainy day

    And I remember quiet evenings, trembling close to you

    Written by: Tom Waits

    Video: Bette Midler – I Look Good! – Diva Las Vegas

    Mister D: I’m trying some new things FB is offering (Oy!) One thing is there is a poll at the end of the video where you rate it. I did it on the fly, so if you have some ideas of how to name the options, make a comment. I’d like to see which vids are like the best so I can show them more. Once the video starts, hover your pointer over the video and a symbol will come up that let’s you vote at anytime. That only works if you enlarge the video, otherwise the poll should come up at the end. If you’ve never seen the vid before, wait til the end to vote. Or this might just not work…lol….of course, it’s me, Don, Mister D, The Gay Pundit Read More

    Video: I Shall Be Released – Divine Madness – Bette Midler -1980

    Mister D: Ahh!!!! Another classic, Saw her do this on Broadway, Divine Madness, Those that missed the early concerts will never fully grasp how electrifying she was, especially on certain songs. My body would tense up, I’d be on the edge of my seat, it looked like it hurt her to put so much emotion in a song. For most of the concert, I’d be drained of energy, so I’d have to go back, but the same thing always happened. LOL
