(1955)
.
.

.
Genre:Pop
Now before you jump up and down, ranting and raving saying "THIS IS NOT MUSIC!" let me give you a glimpse of the past to bring you to this point and time of Music.

(1950s) to (1960s) to Carly Simon (1970s) to Madonna (1980s) to (1990s) to Shania Twain (2000s) (hasn't Sheryl Crow got a cool name?)

Its evolution baby!

You see, and i am not saying this is true, but if you follow my drift, all these artists are all as important as each other. Shania was influenced by Sheryl and Sheryl influenced by Madonna and so forth, till we get to Doris. (Your not falling for this are you?)Sigh...bring in the expert .....

"Doris Day has packed four careers into one lifetime, two each in music and movies. The pity is that all most people remember are her movies from Teacher's Pet (1957) onward, as the quintessential all-American girl, the perpetually virginal screen heroine, cast opposite such icons of masculinity as and, rather ironically, . She also transposed this following to television at the end of the 1960s with a situation comedy that lasted into the early '70s. If most people remember her as a singer, it's usually for such pop hits as "Secret Love" and her Oscar-winning "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)," which became her signature tune."

Ok... Here is some trivia for you too....
She is mentioned in the Beatles "Dig It," the Billy Joel song "We didn't start the fire", the Wham song "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go", the Super Furry Animals song "Shoot Doris Day," the De Phazz song "Something Special," the Magnetic Fields song "Is This What They Used to Call Love?" and "Doris Daytheearthstoodstill" (sic), the Underworld song "Dirty Epic," and in the song "Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee," part of the musical Grease. The Dutch band Doe Maar (Go Ahead, in the sense of 'see if i care') made a song about the monotone Dutch T.V. broadcasts. The name of the song is Doris Day, and she is mentioned in the chorus.
And lastly.... She is still alive & kicking (Born 3rd April 1924)
