Little Miss Dynamite

Friday, November 21, 2008


Brenda Lee, born 1944, began her professional singing career at 12 and by 21 she had already released 256 songs under the Decca Records label. ‘Given the nickname Little Miss Dynamite after recording Dynamite in 1957; the explosive strength of the sound pouring out of her small frame amazed audiences and promoters.’


‘Dynamite’ (1957)

This is my most favorite song of hers. Such an impressive voice!



Budding Brenda Lee's lip-sync to ‘Let’s Jump the Broomstick’ (1961)

(...I would've picked #3)



‘Sweet Nothins’ (1958)

This is my sister's favorite song of hers...



Brenda and Elvis (1956)

Hacen buena pareja Brenda y Elvis. Una de las que más me gustan es 'Learning to Love'. También una canción de Ben Vaughn, 'I'm Sorry (But So Is Brenda Lee)'.
