“Head Over Heels” is a fun song by Bobby Lewis, the star of today’s Thursday Inspiration. Later on, the Go-Gos also recorded one of their signature peppy songs with the same title. But you know what? Jim Adams’ post reminded me of Christine Baranski, one of my favorite actresses. How so?
In the TV show Cybill, starring Cybill Shepherd, CB played Cybill’s drunk friend Maryann. I don’t remember much about the show, except for one scene where Cybill was talking to Maryann on the phone regarding one of their man-crushes. Cybill said something about falling head over heels, and Maryann replied, “At our age, the best we can hope for is heels over head.”
That struck me as particularly hilarious wordplay and I think about it to this day. Christine reprised her wealthy drunk friend shtick in Mamma Mia, when she showed up on the island for Sophie’s wedding. CB’s Tanya was gorgeous, glamorous, and flirtatious, perfectly offsetting Meryl Streep as the sensible mom in overalls. Christine really knows how to deliver a funny line. She also does a great sexy solo video in MM.
