Normal as Blueberry Pie


Whoa, Nellie.

That girl has done it and come out with a fantastic tribute album to Doris Day. (And please don't tell me you don't know who Doris Day is. Please.)

I mean, come on, who doesn't love Doris Day? The lady who implored us with her sweet syrupy voice to "please, please, don't eat the daisies" -- yep, good ol' Doris.

I've been a fan of Nellie McKay for a while now. She first grabbed me with "The Dog Song", a clever little ditty about life with dogs. Boy, can I ever relate to that song...

Anyway, this will be my next album purchase on iTunes fo sho. Watch the little video below to learn more about our dear friend, Nellie. If you're yet to become a fan of this type of music (Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, etc.), I highly recommend it. It's great background music especially for dinner parties, etc., but watch out -- you might find yourself a big fan quicker than you think!

And here's a nice little write-up about Nellie in Vanity Fair Magazine if you want to read more...
