Top Ten Songs by Doris Day

A very Happy Birthday to Doris Day, who turned “80-something” on April 3rd (Doris’ official site claims she was born in 1924, making her 87, while IMDB and others claim 1922).

In just 25 of those 80-something years, she accomplished a ton: Doris recorded more than 650 songs and appeared in 39 films – she’s been off the radar since ‘The Doris Day Show‘ ended in ’73, and has since devoted her time to helping out four-legged friends through the Doris Day Animal League. In honour of Doris and everything she’s accomplished over the years, here’s our list of the Top Ten Songs by Doris Day:
