British singer Cilla Black

Postby StevenHW » Thu Aug 06, 2015 2:24 pm

Trying to play catch-up on this board since the forum was down in the last several weeks!

Anyway, here's the first of several postings from me today...

British singer Cilla Black, died on August 2, 2015, at the age of 72. Her most well-known hit single in the U.S. was "You're My World", which was a modest chart hit in America back in 1964. But she enjoyed far more success in the U.K., and later became a TV host.

In the 1960s, our local radio was full of "Anyone Who Had a Heart." The song has such an interesting history -- and became the focus of such lasting animosity on the part of Dionne Warwick -- that I thought I'd post the wiki synopsis here:

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.
