Bucket Of Sads: Doris Day


It seems inconceivable, but we now live in a world without Doris Day.

Besides her movie career, she was a gorgeous, honey-voiced singer who started out as a top jazz performer, then conquered Broadway and popular tunes like few have since.


By the way, there's plenty more Doris goodies HERE

We will most definitely never see anyone like Doris Day ever again. Wonderful actress, exceptional singer with a voice of silk, unwavering friend to animals everywhere, and an all around beautiful soul.

The world got to be in her company for 97 years and it still wasn't nearly long enough.

And boy could she swing!

She epitomized an era that we will never see again. Doris day was an icon. I never get tired of listening to her albums.

I'm the last person to look a gift horse in the mouth, but folks might be interested to know that some of the songs in the Doris Day collection linked here are not Doris Day. As far as I can tell, Blue Moon is Ella Fitzgerald, Hernando's Hideway is Carol Haney, I'm Beginning to See The Light is Kitty Kallen, Sisters is Rosemary Clooney and Betty Clooney, and Swinging on a Star is Bing Crosby! You Are My Sunshine is omg I have no idea, but there is an accordion in there, and maybe a Wurlitzer organ, and a female vocalist who is not Doris Day. There's are a lot of great tracks here, but just don't think you're listening to Doris in all of them.

Oh, dear. That's what I get for trusting one of the newer Amazon compilations. Compare and contrast Kitty's "I'm Beginning to See The Light" on this collection with Doris actual version here:

At any rate, thanks for the heads up. If it matters, I've always been more of a fan of early-era "Jazz Doris." Before she became a professional virgin, as they say. You can find a great big serving of it on this blog here:

And it's all Doris, I promise.
