1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
Everybody Loves a Lover recorded by Doris Day introduced July 21, 1958
Written by Richard Adler & Robert Allen
Orchestra conducted by Frank DeVol
This lively, peppy, girlish recording utilizes the multi-track voice overdub that lets Doris Day sing a duet with herself. This double-track technique was frequently employed in 50s recordings. Doris Day, Jo Stafford, Patti Page, Dinah Shore, Margaret Whiting,
Peggy Lee, Sarah Vaughan, Georgia Gibbs, and others recorded these
lively, upbeat, girlish hits. Everybody did love Doris Day but it was her last top-forty hit.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"Iím a lover, everybody loves me, anyhow thatís how I feel, just like a Pollyanna"
