    Jimmy and Billy Joel form a two-man doo-wop group and make sweet a cappella music.

    We *loved* this amazing doo-wop duet with one of our favorite singers — and Jimmy is pretty good, too. ;-)

    Today in 1964, Bobby Vinton’s cover of “There! I’ve Said It Again” would be the last #1 charting single on the Billboard charts before the Beatles would change pop music forever.

    Do you remember flying in the era of the “sexy skies”?
theatlantic:

Sexy (and Sexist) Airline Ads from The Atlantic Archives

These days, air travel is anything but sexy. TSA pat-downs, inflatable neck pillows, reruns of CBS sitcoms—it can get pretty grim at 35,000 feet.
There was a time, however, when flying was both the literal and figurative height of sexiness. “The good old days,” Mark Gerchick calls them wryly in the January/February Atlantic. “When travelers were ‘mad men’ and flight attendants were ‘sexy stews,’ when the ‘sex sells seats’ mantra drove some carriers to adorn ‘trolley dollies’ in hot pants and go-go boots.”
While air travel ads printed in The Atlantic in those days were a little more… buttoned up (than, say, this 1972 Southwest Airlines commercial), it’s clear the “sexy skies” gimmick was an advertising boon. The campaigns were wildly misogynistic, hopelessly fantastical, and maybe a little bit racist. But sell seats they did, from Narita to O’Hare.
