Songs About A Blonde: Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is one of the first of many women that will completely floor any red-blooded man, gay or straight, at first glance. There is simply no way that those eyes, that smile, that shock of blonde hair, and that figure can leave you feeling devoid of emotion. Girls want to be her, and guys just want someone like her to even look their way.

Monroe would have been 85 years old today had she not passed away in the summer of 1962. Of course same say it was an accidental overdose, a sad and lonely suicide, the Kennedys, the Mafia, and/or the CIA protecting their interests, public and private.
