Debbie Reynolds and Shirley Jones

Continuing our series on American female pop singers, here are two songs from movie musicals. From "Tammy and the Bachelor," Debbie Reynolds sings her hit "Tammy" from 1957.

Shirley Jones sings "Till There Was You" from "The Music Man," 1962. British readers undoubtedly remember The Beatles' cover.

I love both of these lovely, talented ladies. Debbie Reynolds was not just a singer, but quite a hoofer also, as demonstrated when she was only 20 years old in Singing in the Rain with old pros Gene Kelley and Donald O'Connor in the "Good Morning" scene: and she was Princess Leia's mother to boot!

As for Shirley Jones, she was also terrific in Carousel (I'm an old softy and tear up at the end of that movie every time) and Oklahoma, both with Gordon Macrae, giving it all up to be the mom in the TV series "The Partridge Family."
