December 29, 1957: Steve & Eydie Get Married

Whaddya mean, who? Steve. Eydie. Steve & Eydie, that being Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gormé, who have spent decades as easy-listening crooners of the highest order. They were both always really funny whenever they showed up on variety shows. Acts like The Beatles helped to end their careers on the pop chart, but your parents (okay, maybe your grandparents) can tell you that Steve & Eydie remain an endearing showbiz couple who long ago perfected the art of clever stage banter. They were doing it before Sonny & Cher–and Steve & Eydie are still married. They’ve never been hip, though. The closest they ever got was being invited to do a cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” on a compilation album built around the short-lived trend of Loungecore way back in 1997. Here’s a nice video made by a music fan, and it sounds just as classy as when Steve & Eydie gussied up some pop hits of the 1960s.  They’ve certainly earned a happy 55th wedding anniversary…  [image via imdb]
