Doris Day - Dig It (I Ain't Hep To That Step)



I saw a documentary about Doris Day and thought I'd post a song from her singing career, here a tune she sang with Les Brown and His Orchestra: (I Ain't Hep to That Step But I'll) Dig It.

What do you think of Doris Day singing Dit It? Please comment.

Thank you for posting this tribute to Doris Day and her work with Les Brown in the early days before she was discovered for movies. Ms. Day is living the in the Carmel Valley, California, and is in very good health. She continues to work tirelessly for the betterment of animals as she has for decades. And she continues to meet occasionally with fans and participates in an all-day birthday tribute to her through a local radio station, which is streamed through the internet on April 3rd each year on her birthday. Doris Day remains a great humanitarian and advocate for abused and homeless animals. Thank you for your efforts in remembering Doris.

A long-time fan,

I think I kike her here better than her later stuff but always great voice.

I recently posted a scene from the Nutty Professor featuring Les Brown an his Band playing Leap Frong while Jerry Lewis acts out. I'm digging that at the moment.

Doris Day is one of the greatest under-rated voices of pop/jazz music. I love this song. If you haven't already, listen to Nellie McKay's version on her tribute to Doris Day: Normal as Blueberry Pie. Thanks for helping to give Doris her due.
