Green Door, What's That Secret You're Keeping?

"Midnight, one more night without sleepin'
Watchin' till the mornin' comes creepin'
Green door, what's that secret you're keepin?"*


Some may not remember that this is actually a very old song that dates back to the 1950's.  It has been written about and re-recorded ever since.  Me, I still like the soft , original version that is on YouTube at the end.

It is no secret that these Etsy shops have a lot of beautiful items for sale.  Come and take a peek behind the green door!

It was a different day and age for sure in 1956. Jim Lowe, a disc jockey by trade and part-time country and 

novelty tune songwriter enters a Greenwich Village apartment and records a song he has written, "Green Door"

and it goes all the way to #1in September and stays on the charts for an astounding 22

weeks. It took Elvis and "Love Me Tender" to knock "Green Door" from its #1spot.

"La vie est belle!" Life is beautiful!  Patti
