Song of the Day: Eydie Gormé, “Blame It On The Bossa Nova”

Singer Eydie Gormé was born on this day in 1928. She had hits on the Pop and Latin Pop charts in her career, and sang both as a solo act and with her husband, Steve Lawrence. “Blame It On The Bossa Nova” was the title track on her 1963 album and reached #7 on the Hot 100 and #6 on the Cash Box Top 100 Singles chart that year.

  1. Cousin Eydie! Seriously, my late mother-in-law was Eydie’s cousin, so therefore my daughters can claim kinship. Did you know Neil Sedaka is also Eydie’s cousin? But I’m not sure if he’s related to my kids, or if he’s from a differed branch of the family.
