This clip from a 1969 episode of the ABC variety show The Hollywood Palace featuring Diahann Carroll and Stevie Wonder chased my blues right away this morning! The song is “Pretty World,” and was originally recorded in 1966 by bossa nova master Sergio Mendes. Enjoy!

    OMG that was pure delight! They were having so much fun.

    Is it totally declassée to say I like to think they got it on after the show LOL?

    This was an excellent way to start the day! I had never seen this clip nor had I heard the Sergio Mendes original. I’m now in the mood to listen to something from the sixties on the way to work. :-)

    That IS totally declassee…but since you used the word ‘declassee’ I’ll allow it!

So what do you think? Please be respectful to other readers!
