In memory of Eydie Gorme

Steve and Eydie album coverSinger Eydie Gorme died today, August 10, 2013, at age 84. Gorme performed solo and as a team with husband Steve Lawrence, whom she married in 1957. The duo frequently appeared on television, singing and exchanging banter. Gorme scored her biggest solo hit in 1963 with “Blame It on the Bossa Nova.” She is survived by Lawrence and their son and granddaughter. Here are Steve & Eydie hosting Hollywood Palace, opening the show with “I Believe in You” from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. I enjoy the set and Eydie’s hair as much as her singing.

  1. thanks for the pingback. Such a sad loss, I remember as a child seeing Steve and Eydie on the Mike Douglas Show, my mother loved them! I always thought she was so glamerous.

    1. I mostly remember them from their appearances on The Carol Burnett Show. I loved that they were such hams, which you can really see in the Hollywood Palace clip, with the exaggerated gestures and eye rolls.
