This week's Sepia Saturday photo prompt is GAMES. I didn't think I had an image that would fit that theme, but I soon found this one, dated Christmas 1951:
Now, leave it to me to turn a post about games--presumably a fun thing--into something maudlin. I'm trying to let Sepia Saturday play nicely with my regularly posted Saturday Song Selection, and every "game" song that came to mind was about the game of love. We all know, of course, that when love is spoken of as a game, it doesn't end well.
Anyway, the song I chose is "The Crying Game." I love the Boy George version that's on my iPod. While looking for the best YouTube video of that one, I came across an earlier version (1964) by Dave Berry. Hmm. I always thought the Boy George version was the original. By virtue of vintage alone, the older version seemed to be the best fit here, so if you like good songs and you might actually enjoy seeing interesting images of people crying, this one should be right up your alley:
The song is "The Crying Game" by Dave Berry.
