A Natural Woman is a 1969 (see 1969 in music) album by Peggy Lee. It was arranged and conducted by Bobby Bryant and Mike Melvoin.
She decided to become a singer at age 14, when she earned 50 cents a night at gigs for local PTAs. A few years later she traveled to Fargo where she sang on a local radio station. The WDAY program director suggested a name change, and she became Peggy Lee.

It was Peggy Lee`s idea to eliminate Roberts` guitar, entirely, and have him provide the funky finger-snapping instead. Manne used his hands and fingers (rather than drumsticks) to tap his snare drum and tom-tom to the accompaniment of his bass drum.

Modeled after Dolly Parton, the country singer known for her own ample assets, Polly Darton cropped up on the children's program from 1981 to 1993.
Billed as "the sweetest little package in down-home country goodness," Polly Darton parodied some of Parton's greatest hits, including "9 to 5," whose lyrics had... Read More

"I sang before I could talk."
"Mamie Eisenhower was our First Lady at the time, and she always wore bangs. The little dog has bangs and her name in the script was Mamie, so Walt [Disney] was afraid someone might think we were being a little less than polite about the First Lady. That`s why I have the honor of having the character named after me." - referring to her animated doggie character "Peg" in Lady and the Tramp (1955).
