16. Doris Day

Recommended Posts

As far as I know, Doris Day (singer/actress) is still alive. According to All Music Guide she was born April 3rd 1924, making her 81. Also, she's barely been seen since her TV show ended in 1973. Strangely, her son Terry Melcher died last November aged 62...

Clearly the world ignored the Super Furry Animals plea to 'Shoot Doris Day' a few years ago.

She runs an animal foundation nowadays (and she looks fit & healthy)

Nowt like that.

 

It's a typically eliptical lyric from the Welsh psych/pop/funsters. The closer you look the less it's about the cheesy screen queen and the more it seems to be a broadside at a departing girlfriend. A few references to people not staying the same and the singer struggling to get through some feelings.

 

Good gag at one point though: He claims he's going to get over everything by binging on 'Crack and tiramasu.'

For some reason, I can envision Doris Day becoming the new Barbara Cartland, the ageing crone who refuses to die for decades after her sell-by date.

Doris Day. Doris Doris Doris Day. Such an unsual name.

 

Mr Hugh G Erection and the Reverend Willy R Dickgraber would probably disagree.

 

(Real names out of the phone book, apparently)

Doris Day. It should be declared a national holiday.

Every day has a name in France, don't think there's a Doris though. Today is Adelphe, by the way.

In the Netherlands we do something similar, still no Doris Day, though. Today's 'maandag', which translates loosely to 'Monday'. :D

Doris Day to release new album.

 

The tracks were recorded in 1985 and produced by her son (prior to his death, the BBC helpfully notes).

Hope they show "Lover Come Back" - the best of the Day/ Hudson/ Randall trilogy IMO...

Perhaps,Perhaps,Perhaps she will outlive the other 49 people on this list. The safest bet to make it to 2014 at the very least.

I'm not saying he's wrong, but Mr Townshend has been known to be economical with the truth in the past.
