EGDailySayItThis week sees a talented voice performer notch her only Hot 100 hit. Elizabeth Ann Guttman jumped on the mid-80s dance bandwagon, signing with A&M in 1985 as E.G. Daily. Her debut album, Wild Child, was produced by Madonna’s old friend “Jellybean” Benitez. The lead single, Say It Say It, was written by the singer with another Madonna collaborator, Stephen Bray. This week it entered the the Hot 100 at #95. Daily failed to make much of a pop impression, peaking for three weeks at #70 in a 10-week run. The song fared much better on the Dance charts, spending a week at #1 in mid-May.

Daily moved on to voice acting after this brief musical career, finding much greater success. She is the voice of the Rugrats‘ Tommy Pickles and Powerpuff Girl Buttercup, and has racked up an impressive number of other gigs on TV and in the movies.
