RIP Cilla Black

Sad news to report: Cilla Black, who I featured on Two for Tuesday as part of my series on The British Invasion, died this morning at her home in Marbella, Spain, apparently of natural causes. She was 72.

I think an appropriate celebration of Cilla’s life would be to hear her wonderful rendition of Bacharach and David’s “Anyone Who Had A Heart,” her #1 hit from 1964.

Rest in peace, Cilla.

    1. I was, too. She never made much of an impact here in the US, and I don’t know why; Pet Clark, Dusty Springfield, and Lulu all did well here, and they didn’t have the support of The Beatles and Brian Epstein.
