TUNES - 18

I am in the mood for a chick singer on the Radio.Blog this week, so I am going with one of my favorite, under-rated singers - Doris Day. Why do I say she was/is under-rated, despite her obvious success? Because I think she has been regarded as a light weight or, sometimes, as just a novelty singer. But I believe the girl had major chops - though many of the songs she recorded (especially later) were indeed light weight. Her life, however, was anything but.

The songs featured here are from the 2 CD set Golden Girl: Columbia Recordings 1944-1966, Blue Skies and a couple off of Legendary Big Band Vocalists.

The list starts out with one of my mother's favorite tunes, Stardust.
You will, of course, find her classics - Sentimental Journey, Que Sera, Sera.
One of my favorite of her 'novelty' numbers, My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time

I love Doris Day! Her movies are favorites of mine...and you just can't go wrong with that clear voice of hers. :)
