And then this, still a favourite:

Be my Baby - The Ronettes

Eddie Cochran died in 1960 and his closest friend (who was in the car with him when it crashed) at the time wrote and sang this in 1961, not giving a jot for what some might think… Love of a Man

and another favorite, from 1967 - a cover of the song from Lili - sung by the strangely beautiful Leslie Caron, but this time by…

And I’ve always been a fan of these cercopithecoids !

(lordradish is a fan too, so they’re a well-protected species here)

France Gall, Creedence, The Monkeys, Ninni Rosso, Petula Clark, The Ronettes …

Play this thread at my funeral (when Scherpschutter goes downtown)!

and this one - about a girl that likes sucking lollipops!!! :o
Produced by Serge Gainsbourg - it couldn’t be about anything else … surely? :wink:


Better version soundwise - but without the mad penis-lollipops…

God - she was beautiful!!

Pink Floyd/Syd Barret - Arnold Layne

The Kinks - Waterloo Sunset (genius pop song)

Love- To be alone agin or… (genius song again, it will be perfect in a SW)
