Trivia and Quotes

  • Lulu - Still Vital After All These Years

    To those of you who think Lulu is no bigger or better than her first worldwide mega-hit "To Sir With Love" I ask you to think again. As I sit here and listen to her "Lulu - The Greatest Hits" CD, I am reminded once again of the tremendous talent which abides in this five foot nothing, green eyed cutie pie. Her voice is so wonderfully seasoned she can sing anything and have it sound fresh and new all over again. We, in the USA, have never had enough of Lulu to go around so we must live on the compilations that are abroad in the land. Whenever I am lucky enough to see her through a YouTube video posted by a die-hard am jettisoned into a place that is, all at once, nostalgic yet timeless, current and, genre to genre, simply terrific! She still has that desirable little rasp in her remember it well because it was her signature 'hook' and always grabbed you just where you the music. She also looks fantastic which is a great thing for her and for us. What a firecracker she is and she remains one of the British Invasion superstars that has stood the test of time.moreless
