Eydie Gorme, the singer who married Steve Lawrence and had a Top 10 hit with "Blame It On The Bossa Nova", has died at age 84. Condolences?

My parents were big fans of Steve and Eydie. They went to see many of their performances over the years. Best wishes to Mr. Lawrence.

Yes, Mom & Dad loved Steve and Eydie. They seemed to be a great Hollywood couple back in the day. I believe their son is a film composer, David Lawrence who scored HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL and such.

Loved the take off SNL did with Steve and Eydie and Frank Sinatra with Phil Hartman playing Sinatra.

Condolences to her husband and family, friends and colleagues.

She brought smiles and good entertainment to many.


May she Rest in Peace.

Always thought if she married Mel Torme, she'd be Eydie Gorme Torme.

I've enjoyed her signing alone and with Steve Lawrence for many years and own a few of her/their albums. I'd read that she was not in the best of health ... a good age, nonetheless.

We spin their Christmas Album every December. Love "Hurry Home for Christmas."

Man, I saw this when I woke up and thought I was still dreaming. Very talented singer, I had no idea she was so far on in age.

It's a damn fine tune. They don't write them like that anymore.
RIP, Ms. Gorme.

My fondest memory of her would be every Christmas season a nice uplifting Christmas song would be played on many stations-HAPPY HOLIDAYS with STEVE LAWRENCE. Like a bunch of other holiday songs it went with the Christmas season like a hand in a glove.

I remember Steve + Eydie fondly from my childhood and into the 70s - always fun to hear and watch on countless tv shows - I loved their singing solo and together.

Steve seemed to do more as a single such as Carol Burnett's show whereas Eydie usually appeared in tandem with him.

I certainly send my sincere condolences to Steve Lawrence and his family -

Composed by Jerry Herman for his musical Mame. For her recording of that song, Gorme won a Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance in 1967.

Gorme really belts out this one, from a 1966 Tonight Show appearance.

It's rare the husband outlives the wife.

Quite a voice, now gone. I remember her first Spanish album getting a lot of play when I was small.

Eydie Gorme has a film music connection. She sang the title song for the 1957 Jean Simmons-Paul Newman film UNTIL THEY SAIL. Here is that song, composed by Sammy Cahn:




And Eydie and Steve joined together to sing the title song for the 1960 Bob Hope-Lucille Ball comedy THE FACTS OF LIFE. Johnny Mercer composed the song.

She was 6 years older than Steve Lawrence.

Steve and Eydie played Tweedledum and Tweedledee in a 1985 Irwin Allen television production of "Alice In Wonderland." Here they sing and dance to to the song "Shake Hands."
