Let’s leave Rick Perry alone for few minutes and talk about someone truly important; Eydie Gorme is 80 today…
She’s such a part of the 20th Century Music scene, I couldn’t let this milestone go unnoticed. She’s one of the last of the great Broadway belters. I somehow think you could hear Eydie even without the microphone, no matter how big the house…
She also has one of the longest musical partnerships- and marriages- in Show Business with her husband, Steve Lawrence.
They are so “Vegas in the ’60’s” you can’t help but love them. They are iconic 20th Century entertainment figures.
I bet Rick Perry even listened to her back when he was a cheerleader at Texas A&M….
Happy Birthday, Eydie. I hope you have many more!
Here she is in 1966:
And a little Steve AND Eydie:
