You Know the Voice: EG Daily, Pop Star (1986)

E. G. Daily is better known to cartoon fans for her work on such series as Rugrats, The Powerpuff Girls, and, more recently, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. However, before turning to voice-over work, Ms. Daily gave it a go as a pop singer in the mid-80's.

Who'd ever believe that the actress behind Tommy Pickles (Rugrats) and Buttercup (Powerpuff Girls) once aspired to be in the same league as the likes of Madonna and Janet Jackson? In fact, she was a label-mate of Janet's at this point, having signed with A & M Records in 1985. Unfortunately, her first single, "Say It, Say It", failed to crack the Top 40, peaking at #70. E. G. even appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform the song. Here, though, is a concert clip uploaded to YouTube by Dexterlabfan24isback. She's definitely lip-syncing here, I do believe.

E. G. is still recording in her spare time, with her last CD released to iTunes a couple of years back. Funny thing. I don't remember ever hearing "Say It, Say It" on the radio back in the day......
