Daughter mentioned that I hadn't posted a Friday Fun Song in a while. Empty Bed Blues is from my favorite Bette Midler album, Broken Blossom. It's bawdy in a witty way. I love the bluesy way she sings it.

- A 1977, live version - Bette Midler singing at the Roxy, L.A. I'll link to this version even though I don't really like it. The video quality is bad, and I prefer her singing in the album version - this version seems too inspired by her singing in The Rose, which she was probably making at the time.
