The happy convergence of Midweek Madness time with Barbra Streisand's 71st birthday means a little levity is in order.

I always did have a soft spot for every moment of "Color Me Barbra," because it was the first Streisand album I owned and the beginning of a life-long, unrequited romance. The TV special that generated that album includes this comic gem -- a harried Marie Antoinette getting a hurried last song in.
