Baby, Have I Got Some Retro Nostalgia for You!

Today's Old School Friday theme is Baby. So, once again I'm going to have a little fun with the topic in a nostalgia - retro way, of course!

First, please enjoy the theme from the movie Rosemary's Baby. Yes, I did go there!


And here's King Cry Baby from Cry Baby starring Johnny Depp. I never understood why they didn't let Depp sing for this movie - maybe they didn't know what all Depp fans knew way back when - this guy can do anything including sing. We were proven right when Sweeny Todd came out:


And here's Sonny and Cher in 1965 singing "I Got You, Babe" - okay, it's only one letter off! Besides I thought you'd get a royal kick out of the threads Sonny and Cher were wearing (not to mention Cher's old nose!) in this rare clip:



Hope I brought a little humor into your life today, Babe! Have a great weekend and I'll see you all tomorrow for the Saturday Soapbox!

  2. Jenn, me too so I had to post something from this movie even though he didn't sing in it. Sweeny Todd didn't have any Baby songs, lol!

  3. "Rosemary's Baby"--Ooooo, creepy! Not as scary as the theme song to The Exorcist (that one still sends shivers down my spine) but good one!

    I almost did "I Got You Babe" but I figured it was "babe" and not "baby" and I had already fudged with one of my picks!

    Happy OSF!

  4. I wish I would have thought of Sonny and Cher, I use to sing that song in the mirror.

    Yes, you are wrong for Rosemary's Baby. My friends and I rented that in 7th grade thinking it was going to be scary, and it was far from. I think we laughed more than anything. My mom said back then it was scary, the story line of a evil baby.

  6. post - part of the fun for me is "fudging" and fitting each week's theme in with my retro blog!

    MrsGrape - yeah, I pushed it a bit there but it does have Baby in the title!

    And Regina liked it, lol! Didn't you Regina?

  7. Cool choices! When I thought about you and this theme, I was reminded of the song by the Shirelles entitled "Baby It's You". Happy OSF!

  10. I was wondering what you were going to do with this theme; you didn't disappoint.

    Rosemary's Baby still scares me, even the theme song.

    This was just fun.

  11. Cindy - Thanks for the award! Does it come with any money? LOL. I'll be passing it along.

    Hagar'sDaughter - honestly, when I first saw the word "baby" all I could think of was that Dancing Baby Schtick on Ally McBeal - remember that? But I refused to give that any more airtime, lol.

  12. You surely bring the music of our generation each week. Rosemary's Baby, I had forgotten about. Sonny & Cher's "I Got you Babe" is a boomer classic.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Rev - and those clothes were boomer classics too, huh? Fur vests, omg.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks for the Johnny Depp fix!

    Sonny and Cher - did we really dress like that? I do admit to sharing some of those clothes, but I don't think I ever owned a fur vest!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Melodieann - I never had a fur vest either - though I do admit to a fringed leather jacket and go-go boots, lol. And you're welcome for the Depp fix!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow, not the theme from Rosemary's Baby...I think I'm scared!

    Great choices! Happy OSF!

    ReplyDelete
  17. MsMarvalus - lol, well it's all in fun and the movie title does have "baby" in it - albeit one with horns!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Nice! So of course I know Sonny and Cher and Rosemary's Baby - but I didn't know the other one. So I learned a new track today!

    ReplyDelete
  19. soulafrodisiac - the Cry Baby one is probably only known by hard core Johnny Depp fans like me, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry it took me a week to get over here, but it's my lost. You had some cool choices here. I remember when Rosemary's Baby was the hot topic, but I forgot about the theme song. Depp, *grins*, is such a babe. And I used to know all the words to "I've Got You Babe," remember watching the Sonny and Cher variety show too.

  21. Verite - hey,better late than never! Thanks for coming.

    Yeah, the Cry Baby/Depp post was a little on the edge for this subject but I teetered off for my own Johnny fix, lol - and it does have "baby" in the title!
