Sad news over the weekend as jazz singer Blossom Dearie passed away at the age of 82. Her relevance here is her presence on 2 classic Schoolhouse Rock songs - "Unpack Your Adjectives" and "Figure Eight." Both songs have been covered since by artists like Daniel Johnson and Duplex, but Dearie's porcelain voice put her own indelible stamp on the tunes. (Hat tip: Idolator)
