Tuesday Tunes - Barbra Streisand Edition

Tuesday Tunes - Barbra Streisand Edition

The iconic Barbra Streisand is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, entertaining people worldwide for nearly 60 years. As an adored singer and actress, she is one of only 15 performers who have won an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award. Last night, she made a rare appearance to the ‘Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ nearly five decades after her last late night appearance.  In honor of this Funny Girl and to thank her for the memories, we present to you: our top eight Barbra Streisand songs.

Mayflower Day

Mayflower Day

Happy Mayflower Day! On this day in 1620, the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, England, carrying the first Pilgrims to the New World. Two months later they arrived in America, got off the ship and...celebrated Thanksgiving, possibly? No, wait, first they planted corn. Or they planted fish. Hang on, that can’t be right. Anyway, Squanto was there, and they definitely had Thanksgiving, and if I’m remembering my history classes right they pretty much just killed time for a century and a half until George Washington showed up.
