Blossom Dearie – Doop Doo De Doop (A Doodlin’ Song)

(click song title above to listen)

As summer winds down we bring you a tune that was a big hit for Blossom Dearie in 1958 from her stellar album Once Upon A Summertime. Her trio consisted of Mundell Lowe on guitar and the ace rhythm section of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums.

A sassy mashup of the Cy Coleman/Carolyn Leigh-penned classic with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club‘s “Spread Your Love” appeared in this beloved ad for The Cosmopolitan Hotel – Las Vegas.

We leave you with a classic live clip of the tune featuring Peggy Lee & Bing Crosby.

Summertime, we hardly knew ye!

Peggy Lee – A Doodlin’ Song

(click song title above to listen)

Classically trained pianist and later the grand host of NYC’s cabaret scene, Julius Monk, staged a succession of revues at the Upstairs At The Downstairs on West 56th Street in Manhattan. From the mid-1950s through the mid-1960s, Monk’s annual revues are said to have established the standard for New York cabaret. Singers and collaborators who frequently performed or worked with Monk included Robert Downey, Sr., Sylvia Syms, Blossom Dearie, Imogene Coca, and Liberace to name a few.

It was Blossom Dearie who first recorded this week’s Top Tune and “whose willowy voice had begun attracting devoted fans through the fifties and was a favorite of Julius Monk” writes Andy Propst, author of the new comprehensive bio You Fascinate Me So: The Life and Times of Cy Coleman. The song would enjoy subsequent recordings but probably the most famous was this version by Peggy Lee in 1963 which was a B-side to her single “Got That Magic” on Capitol Records. Lee was inspired to use the song after encountering it for the first time in one of Monk’s revues.


You can hear a bit of Dearie’s version in this sweet mash-up with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s “Spread Your Love” for the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino – Las Vegas.

Here’s a great vintage clip by Mary Tyler Moore, Dick Van Dyke and Sylvia Lewis.

Blossom Dearie – Doop Doo De Doop (A Doodlin’ Song)

Originally written for the Dick Van Dyke Show, this Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leigh tune became a big hit for Blossom Dearie in 1958 and again later for Peggy Lee. Blossom’s trio on Once Upon A Summertime consists of Mundell Lowe on guitar and the great rhythm section of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums.

You might recognize the tune most recently as a mash-up with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s “Spread Your Love” in this ad for The Cosmopolitan Hotel – Las Vegas.

Here’s a live clip featuring Bing Crosy & Peggy Lee.
