Home Celebrity Doris Day, Bruce Springsteen, Cole Porter Added to Grammy Hall of Fame

Doris Day got her third hit single inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame today–“Que Sera Sera” follows “Sentimental Journey” and “Secret Love.” Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” album gets in as does the score to Cole Porter’s immortal “Anything Goes” and albums by the Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, and Tina Turner among others. Why? Who knows? It’s all random. Every year it’s like a random shuffle of hits. Also in this year are Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Grandmaster Flash.
