Doris Day died today

Another example of a celebrity that I thought died decades ago still being alive in recent times. Yikes.

Sadly I haven't seen many of her films, but she was good in Calamity Jane.

Now some songs:

Happy Talk from South Pacific.

Winter Wonderland (I didn't know there was an introductory verse like White Christmas!)

Over the Rainbow
Toyland (as in Babes And...)
Cheek to Cheek (sorry Doris, you did great, but Fred did it better)
Nice Work if You Can Get It

All I Do Is Dream of You
People Will Say We're In Love (up the speed to 1.25 for a better experience)
Silver Bells (I'm starting to wonder if I've ever heard a bad version of this one...)
I've Grown Accustomed to His Face (check the comments for a great Trek reference...)
The Sound of Music (the actual performance is perfectly adequate, but I have a problem with the meter and tempo, I'd up this one to 1.25 as well)
Here Comes Santa Claus (is she slipping into a regional accent with this one? It's nice, but odd...)
mudshark: Nate's just being...Nate.
Zeke: It comes nateurally to him.

mudshark: I don't expect Nate to make sense, really -- it's just a bad idea.

Sa'ar Chasm on the forum: Sit back, relax, and revel in the insanity.

Adam Savage: I reject your reality and substitute my own!

Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Crow T. Robot: Oh, stop pretending there's a plot. Don't cheapen yourself further.
