Fabulous costumes. Huge diamond encrusted rings. Candelabras. Fantastic pianos. A smile that wouldn't stop.
And just a bit of talent....
I loved watching Liberace on his TV show back in the 60s. His costumes fascinated me. His music made my heart skip a beat. Now THAT was a reality show!!
Of course, he was famous as a classical pianist but he also played more popular tunes too. That's what I'm going to share with you today -- some beautiful music and some fun videos.
And a lot of bling!
Music video and his entrance to one of his Las Vegas shows - 1981
(be prepared... apparently he was not an animal rights activist!)
Audience requests -- he put them all together in medley form, made up as he went along!
"Send in the Clowns"
"New York, New York"
"As Long as He Needs Me"
"Chariots of Fire"
Chopin - "Nocturne in E-Flat"
"The Bumble Boogie"
"You Made Me Love You"
"Beer Barrel Polka"
What's My Line was a game show that played from 1950 to 1967. Four celebrity panelists would question the contestants to try to figure out their occupations. There was always a famous mystery guest that the panel had to question and determine their identity. (I know, sounds kinda boring -- but it was really pretty funny at the time!)
Liberace was on this episode -- check out his signature!
He could even play "Chopsticks"
