The Sweet Mystery of It All!

On this day, Sept. 18th, two delicious mysteries made themselves known on this Earth; the birth of world-famous actress, Greta Garbo in 1905 and the release of Bobbie Gentry’s song, “Ode to Billie Joe” in 1967. Greta Garbo maintained a mysterious air until her death; she didn’t give interviews; avoided photographers as best as she could; stopped making movies at a young age; never married or had children; lived quietly in NYC since the end of WW II. Bobbie Gentry caused controversy with her song lyrics and had everyone wondering, “Hmm…what did Billie Joe and the girl narrating the song throw off the Tallahatchie Bridge?” and “Why did Billie Joe commit suicide?”  What was so terrible?
