Judy Garland-Barbra Streisand duet to "Get Happy / Happy Days Are Here Again" This always makes me giddy. I wonder if the people who were in the room when this happened knew how special it was. Watching BS and JG hang onto each other and sway and hop, you forget they're sitting down! And, oh, that wonderful screaming! I just made my partner, Ryan, watch it, and after about a minute he said, "Oh yeah, I've seen this" and turned it off. I yelled at him and made him put it back on so we could finish it. My mom also added, "I remember sitting on the floor in front of the television as a teenager watching it on the 'Judy Garland Show' and being mesmerized by them. One of those moments you don't want to end. Even then I could see there was a 'passing of the torch' taking place, but I didn’t understand it at the time."
