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 …

(Reverend Danite) #18

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!!


(El Topo) #19

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)
