Mrs. Miller: A Hard Day’s Night

November 15, 2006

miller.jpgI’m old enough to remember when this came out.

I can imagine her in the recording studio–– half glasses with diamond rhinestones, incredulously squinting at the sheet music someone provided her, not quite sure what to do with these peculiar syncopations.

I remember her “cover” (more like ‘duck and cover’) of Petula Clark’s “Downtown” which was just hilarious. I remember my mother used to get in these weird moods and start imitating Mrs Miller, or maybe it was Florence Foster Jenkins, just being silly and singing out of tune while doing the dishes (no, she rarely drinks).

“A Hard Day’s Night” by Lennon & McCartney, sung by Mrs. Miller
