Ink Spots

This is not a Rorschack test. The Ink Spots is the name of a singing group popular in the 1930s and 1940s. They were the precursor to rhythm and blues, rock and roll, and doo-wop. I know this because I used to listen to my grandparents LPs growing up and the Ink Spots were their favorite vocal group.

One song in particular brings a smile to my heart. It's called "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire." The first line goes like this: "I don't want to set the world on fire, I just want to start a flame in your heart." Ya gotta love the lyrics. Click on the YouTube picture above for some enjoyable smooth, mellow tones and the rest of the lyrics. Then mosey on over to Jenny's for more "I" words.

I liked the Ink Spots too, Pam. ~~ I can't say that I miss them though as I don't listen much to radio music anymore. Just TV.
