Thanks Hibi. I sent her a note too. As a little boy, she was my second Mommy. If I scraped my knee, I'd go to the record player, play a Doris Day record, and all would be better. We are talking Circa: 1965. She was my Do Do.(dough dough) Loved her music long before I knew she made movies. I still love everything about Doris Day.

Doris wanted Henry Mancini to compose music for her films but her husband Martin Melcher was too cheap to hire him. The result you get: Ya! Ya! Roly! Poly!

LOL. Yes, Doris wasn't thrilled by his cost cutting measures for her movie songs. He hired mostly unknowns on their way up (or nowhere) although Bacharach-David did write one (Send Me No Flowers) before they made it really big.

Yes, I like it too. It has that unmistakable Bacharach sound. One title song Doris did NOT sing was The Thrill of It All. She must've really hated that one (I think it was the Johnny Mann singers who sang it over the credits). I think that was the only time that Doris did not sing the title song (when there was one).

I had to send her birthday greetings. We April 3rds have to support each other. :)

I understand.  That's why I always sent up birthday greetings to Jackie Onassis.  ;)

And still do so to guitarist STEVE MORSE.

Both ALSO July 28th.  ;)
